800 million dollars

  • donate a quarter, invest a quarter, use a quarter to start a business and split the rest buying awesome shit for me and my loved ones
  • Start a think tank with all my friends
  • probably just take a few months off to chill and travel
  • I wouldn't.
  • I wouldn't give that money to anyone that can take care of themselves.
  • I wouldn't give it to anyone, I'd just be ok picking up the tab more often
  • @ocaml: even friends or family who are struggling but getting by?
  • i'm with moon. picking up the tab is more righteous than giving it away.
  • My mind can't even make the leap of a situation where I'd buy a ticket. I think you have to believe on some level that good things could conceivably happen to you.

    yeah i'll admit the thought of this thread is as dooming as it is nefarious

    i would create a mentor program too and discover 1000 brilliant kids in bad situations and give em a way out. i was thinking i could put 80 million towards that and get em into schools with good technical programs and fit the bill. i'm not sure if i could get that far but its worth a shot and could have some positive effects on the US socio-economic landscape
  • I'd pay off my student debt

    good things.
  • just bought 4 tickets lol. such a poor mathematical decision, but it's fun to be a part of things
  • I'd pay off TJ's student debt
  • Small things

    - invest
    - pay off my mother's house
    - pay off my student loans
    - get myself a place to live
    - get a better car
    - maybe a few musical purchases

    I mean that might take a mil to cover, really.
    Just put the rest in the bank and live off of it.
    Or even put it into a high baring interest savings account and live off the interest.
  • Thank you Kyle!
  • It's an empty promise, but sure you're welcome.
  • I'd buy a house and spend the rest of my life going to college and learning cool shit.

  • I saw that, I was rollin
