    If you were given £1500 and you weren't going to university, what would you do with it?

    For the purposes of this, we'll pretend that charities have stopped asking for donations

    EDIT: Assume also that you don't need to save any money
    Funny enough I know exactly what I'd go on.

    1. Sony DSLR-A580 ~£700
    2. Pills or ket. ~ the rest of the money, ie £800

      Charities aren't needing donations, so I wouldn't give it to them. That precludes anything that could be interpreted as charity, like homeless people does it?

      And I don't need to save, which means I've got money. So, if I've got money, I've already got what I would have spent it on otherwise, meaning that I might either save it anyway, put it away with the rest, or give it to someone else.

        I'm loath to spend money on myself even though I want too so it would be very hard to do but I'd get...

        Decent SLR camera with a decent macro lens, so there's half the money gone.

        I might then add £150 and buy a nice gaming PC or if not I'd probably just spend it on the exotics so a few new kitted out enclosures, some nice tarantula specimens, some lizards, frogs etc.

        OR maybe scrap that and a trip to the jungles of Borneo or Costa rica...but I'd want the SLR and I wouldn't be able to afford both...
