Pay off all my bills. Buy a new house in Frederick, Maryland. Give some to charity. Set up accounts for my kid’s futures. Then I’d do whatever the hell I want for the rest of my life :)

First: get my sister out of the situation she’s in. Next: take care of my health problems. After that, I have no idea.

I’d carrying on working just to annoy all my colleagues who would know I could leave anytime I wanted to with out a second thought.

Pay off all my debts, pay off all my family’s debts, set up trusts for my children’s futures, pay for my girlfriend’s medical school so she could move back here, and then start working with my parents and brother to finance their business ideas. Then I’d probably start some sort of business myself and start investing in real estate.

There’s this variation of a popular poem, originally written about LOVE:

“Money wasn’t put in your wallet to stay,
Money isn’t money, ‘til you give it away.”

- Wear a new pair of socks every day.
– Pay someone to pick out each pomegranate seed into a giant bowl I could eat by the
– Leave expensive things laying around public places like coffee shops, etc. (like laptops, iPods, cameras) to see
how often it would really get stolen.
– I’d build a complex catwalk/tunnel system that ran along the walls/ceilings for my cat Icarus.
– I’d eat cherries year round.
– Pay someone to clean my guns every time I go shooting.
– I’d find a heavily addicted addict, and make them a deal… if they could stay clean for one year (with mandatory testing), I’d give them $100,000. Just to see how much personal motivation really comes into play with conquering addiction.
– I’d buy my girlfriend a sloth.
– I would design a house from the ground up. Every single room, every single detail. And it would all be “green”.
– I would build one, kick-ass adult tree house.
– I’d use the money to fight creationism being taught in public schools.
– I’d buy some vintage Land Rovers, and have them restored to their original perfect state.
– I’d have lots of bonzais.
– I’d purchase pieces of the rain forest.
– I would get $1,000 worth of $1 bills, and see if any of the bills had consecutive serial numbers, then I could reunite them as long lost brothers.
– I would have a planetarium in my house.
– Buy an ultra-light plane… fly it over the desert.
– I would live off the interest.
– Have a pack of Irish Wolfhounds.
– And in the wise words of Lawrence from Office space… “I’d do two chicks at once”.

What would you do if you were rich?

You should never use the words RICH and WERE, in the same sentence.
