    I would buy a few properties in different places. Than I would invest in my education and buy a few facilities. I would not run my own business with a business plan and only if it make a profit. Maybe start a charity organisation.

    Pay for my degree and masters if I am smart enough. Maybe do something similar to dragon den, helping others start their own business like business angel and fund projects that could make people lives better.

    Make sure that my parents are sorted for life since they are old already.

    Make a few game studios and make awesome games. Also make awesome film production studio and make awesome movies. Stuff like that but it hard to handle the mentality of having £4 billion. I would be content with £1 million never mind £4 billion. It just attract fake friends and people who only acknowledge you for your money and fame. Huge Hefner is an example.

    Probably an obvious and slightly boring answer, use some of the money to travel this summer and save the rest for a 'rainy day. as it were.

    You'd have to marry him first - you...you gold-digger! :pierre:

    Oh noes, I've been caught!

    Lovin' these sort of questions.

    Personally, I'd do pretty much what everyone else has said. Keep lots for myself and family/friends, donate to charity, invest in businesses...

    BUT. I would create a Lord of The Rings holiday destination. I'd buy an island, and create Rivendell, the Shire, Gondor, Erebor and Lothlorien. And open it to the public.

    For a fee. Of course.

    One thing I've always wanted to do is use some of the money to buy/build a swimming pool and then fill the hole with money instead of water.

    £3 billion to charity. Straight away. And I'm not just saying that to make myself look good. I'd have no personal need for more than £1 billion so giving the excess to charity is probably putting it to its best use.

    Buy multiple houses, cars
    Give £500mil to charity, put £500mil in an account not to be touched
    Go around the world for a couple of years chilling and visiting the sights
    Play high-stakes poker part time (Put like £50mil aside for the project which if I lost, oh well lulz)
    Get bored and start to work on ways to invest the money.. small companies, stocks etc..

    EDIT: Oh, also buy Man United
    You'd give £500m to charity? Hahahaha

    Well that is just initially, only 1/8th of the money and i'd struggle to use so much money anyway.

    I wouldn't give any to my family. They chose to be working class, not me.

    I would just lay on a beach forevermore, with my iPhone in one hand reading through TSR, whilst the waves crash on my feet.

    The iPhone 5, no doubt?

    Or, seeing as you would be rich enough, you could just buy the prototype iPhone 10 (which will probably be out in 2 years, knowing Apple)?

    I would buy holiday homes all over the world, a Bugatti Veyron, Shelby GT500, Ferrari FXX, buy Arsenal FC and actually spend some bloody money (I'd also probably make myself manager).

    That would be one seriously lucky charity.

    Half a billion spent in marginal seats would see off the Tories permanently. Cameron would have to try to get a job in PR again, but I would pay all PR companies not to hire him. He would end up as a hotel porter or something similar.

    I would pay to get Kim Kardashian removed from all monthly, weekly and daily publications, plus her various relatives, in perpetuity.

    One Direction would be retired and pensioned off and Harry would only have his hair to worry about henceforth.

    Benedict Cumberbatch would come back to make another complete Sherlock. I would be the only one who could afford him.

    TSR would be decked in pink and lilac.

    My own special offshore island, 'FullofSurprisia' (somewhere in the Bahamas) would be declared a 'non tax-haven island', only suitable for those who pay their taxes in full.

    I would have a really good massage once a week.

    Of course the first main re action would be to buy things, which is understandable. However when your rich there are problems, yeah you can buy nice stuff, but you slowly lose friends and some friends will be there for the money, I don't know money is like they say You can't buy happiness. I'd give it away to something that desprately needs, I'd always wanted a nice simple life.

    This is very, very true. One of the only ways out of that is to make friends with persons who are equally wealthy.

    CRAZY HOUSECASTLE PARTAY!!!:woo:

    Hmm, maybe I would just forget Uni and live the rest of my days as the headmaster of a boarding school in my epic castle . With everyone sorted into individual houses and pit against each other on a T-Rex, of course!

    EDIT: I may just need that other £3bn back...
