To everyone that said that they wanted to buy Playboy the time is now as it is for sale!! Playboy 4 Sale

As for me, I think robot legs would be in order so I could snowboard like I could 10 years ago. Would need my own helicopter so I could Heli ski everyday... Lift lines are for suckers.
I could finally afford a house in Whistler or move into Bill Gates house he has here.
I would have enough money to play Augusta National and every course I every wished.
See and world and surf only in warm water so I never have to wear a wet suit again.
I would also need to have a fleet of super cars.

Other than that, I have to give most of it away, it is a tremendous amount of money, the amount of good it could do would be staggering.

I dunno about getting rid of welfare. There are a lot of people who I'd rather put tax dollars towards keeping at home than have to work alongside them.


I'm sure everyone has worked alongside someone who is completely useless or mentally unfit to work but not eligible for disability pension. At least if they're getting welfare, it's almost definitely the bare minimum. The worst is when someone is completely useless, but they're making as much or even more than you are.


If you REALLY don't want to be there or aren't prepared to work for your money, then don't take jobs from people who are!


On another note, I would DEFINITELY pump money into Celiac Disease research. This damn disease has ruined my childhood and is still a colossal pain in the ass.

I totally agree with Ted Nugent's answer to welfare. Only veterans and people that are really disabled should get welfare. Get off your a$$ its time to get to work.

How about a theme park,RC Land? Everything a guy would want!

I am surprised there weren't more RC fantasies. Do most people do this because they can't afford or are otherwise unable to do what they really want?

Well, after changing in to Tony Stark/IM, I would buy Mugen, and make them design a MBX6C (yes, thats C for C-hub).
Ok?

Did I mention raffling off new car kits after each race night.

now is the money going to keep coming in or is it we get a billion and thats it. if thats it - Im still young so I not going to just spend it all in one day.
But I will open a chain of RC shops with tracks indoor and out - that caters to racers. one in each state. then turn into a rich snob - any anyone that say money will not change them is a Big Fat Liar
