View Full Version : Now That You're Rich...

What would you do with millions of dollars? Here are some of the things I like to dream about doing/having.

Living situation:

I'd love to build a near perfect replica of the Full House home, if only on the inside (or just the ground floor, at least). Same furniture, paint/wallpaper, etc. Always been obsessed with that show, I think it'd be super comfy to live in their spot. Alternately, I'd love to have a home with themed rooms, based on different time periods & styles. A 50's diner inspired kitchen, 80's night club entertainment lounge, a vaporwave spa set up, something samurai-ish, etc. You could have so much fun pimping out a house. Recreate one of the sewer lair areas, even! Ideally I'd be back in New York, but I'd love to spend a year or two living overseas somewhere.

Rides:

An old school Caddy with a purple/pink gradient would really do it for me. Beyond that, if we're goin' super stupid, I'd get one of the old turtle toys made into a real-life vehicle, like the Foot Cruiser. It'd be cool to get a really nice RV too, to travel the country in. Take friends on road trips.

Travel:

I'd go all over the place. I wanna see Easter Island, Stonehenge, Japan, China, England, various parts of the US, somewhere tropical, castles, lots of places. I'd love to go on an expedition to try & find The Bermuda Triangle, be it a boating trip or trying to fly through its electrical time-warp in the clouds. :tlol: If there's any dope animal oriented experiences, I'm all about that. I needa find a way to play with some baby pandas.

Creative Opportunities:

With money being no option I'd arrange to make music alongside all my favorite performers, from producers to singers to rappers. Not for fame or anything, just the satisfaction of working with those who inspired me. I think I'd put a film or two together, something in the vein of Kung Fury that focuses heavily on its aesthetic value. Original stuff & fan-works alike. As it is now I collect some comic art, but the dream pad would be lined wall to wall with crazy ass paintings. I'd commission recreations of iconic works that replace their human figures with the TMNT or other pop culture icons, among other things. I'd put on shows/concerts for my friends & I, book comedians I like for personal events & stuff. Gilbert Gottfried helping me to bring in the new year? Yes please. Wanna create a toyline & video game series too!

I'm sure I'd do a few favors for people I care about, & some charity work, too. I focus on myself most of the time, as we all do, but it really does feel good to brighten the lives of others as well. Maybe start a business or two! I have some ideas that could be decent with the right financial backing.

I'm sure I could come up with more but I'll leave it at that for the time being. :trazz:

Nothing too extravagant, a nice house in a tropical setting would be ideal. I don't need a mansion, something with 2 or 3 bedrooms would be fine. And yeah, I would likely travel or go on more frequent vacations.

Other than that, there's not much I would get that I don't already own. I already have a big 50" TV for games and movies, I already own a good computer, I can already buy all the videogames I could ever want, and can watch/buy all the TV shows or movies I can ever want. I have some decent clothes for both casual and formal wear, etc.

Seems to me I live a simple life. As long as I have my entertainment media (videogames/tv shows/comics to read/movies to see), that I can already afford anyway, and be able to live comfortably, that's all I need. Oh, maybe a decent car I suppose. But even then I don't care too much what car I drive.

A simple yet spacious house. Not too big not too small.

A simple car. Not too grand, not too cheap.

Some backup money for future; not too little, not too much.

Build some schools, libraries, places of worship, and other beneficial facilities for the public.

Money goes to philanthropy and humanitarian activities. Also to campaign for more fund and create awareness of said pursuits.

First, I'd pay off my family's various debts and mortgages. And my brother's wedding and honeymoon.

I'd probably go smaller with housing, preferably far up north in Minnesota or even somewhere in Canada. Get one of those Hobbit home things, which are already fairly cheap, but have a rocking interior. Also, I'd be going solar powered as completely as I could. Which again, is already becoming more affordable, but hey. Still won't hurt. Have a garden on top and around the house. With the mechanical aids that are becoming things.

I'd get involved with fostering - both animals and children. Maybe I need a slightly bigger house in that case. Being me, I'd probably end up adopting a few of the animals and children myself. That being said, I'd probably end up with...so much technology. And movies. And books. It would probably mean growing some little Shellheads and other things.

And of course, I'd have a good part of it in a "do not touch" account for a good number of years.

I don't think I'd do anything too crazy. I'd probably buy more games and books. And I'd probably move to a better apartment. I'd also travel more often.

Other than that, meh.

Why porn stars and not simply hot women? What's so special about pornstars?

I'd have a Gibson Byrdland guitar, some signature models and amps. Is peace on earth for sale?
I would comfortably travel around the world. Where problems with money are to be solved, I would do it.

I'd pay off my student loan and mortgage, and give some to immediate family like my mom, dad and my siblings. I also have a pact with a friend; If either of us wins a lot of millions we'll pay each other's debt.

I'd also buy a bigger home, maybe get a car and driver's license and some traveling. I'd love to visit Japan or NYCC. I'd also make sure to ration it properly between spending money and enough money to not work anymore.

I guess because they are professional and know what they are doing, and you're less likely to catch a std with a professional sex worker compares to a random one night stand.

After making sure me and mine were set for life, I'd start buying politicians.

So not that different than TTN's goal, huh? :trazz:

Nines has it right. I'll BUY Siri out of retirement.


First thing I'd do is build a house, furnish it, buy a ******** of action figures/comic books/books/warhammer models, and then invest the rest.

A decent sized house (including the furniture, etc), but nothing overly huge. Gift some to family and close friends. Make a few donations. Maybe a bigger aquarium so my fish will have more room and hire a service to come clean it each week. And another to clean the house once a month or so. Wouldn't get any cars, I'd just put some aside to keep my existing vehicle in good shape - and being that it's a Jeep Wrangler parts will prob never be discontinued so it could go on indefinitely.

The rest of the cash... just live off of it and have the time to pursue the things I actually want to do with my life, in all manner of speaking; career, hobby, etc.

Move out to Hollywood with my writing buddy Patrick and former co-worker Jeff Morrison (cool old dude who looks like Blue from Old School); Patrick and I would start our own animation production company and make a deal with Warner Bros. to help us develop our show and film ideas!!! Jeff would act as our chauffeur as I don't drive and Patrick doesn't have his licence yet.

Hm, I wouldn't mind buying a jet ski and just driving it around the water. I've never rode a jet ski but it always looks like so much fun. How much do those things cost, anyway?
