    Buy my way into Cambridge. Just joking.

    I'd pay off the folks house. Then divide up the money to in my immediate family. And I'd half my share and put half in the bank. I'd go to uni, get a job. And probably use some of the inheritance to help homeless people, or those struggling.

    Woah woah woah... There's only one master of Hogwarts, and he's typing this to you right now sonny jim...

    Equally we could just combine our resources to get it done faster and become partners in the 'Hogwarts Project.'

    stop donating it all to charities they will just employ more staff to do less of the work and their pay freezes will start to melt very fast.

    instead make you own charities and employee the unemployed.


    and no stealing my gold

    On a slightly different note, as no one seems to have commented on the actual story, I'm really glad those guys are getting to inherit such a large sum! Having to live in a cave and making pennies off scrap must have been really awful situation. Good to see that their fortunes have been reversed

    With that much, you could do so much for charity- I'd keep a little (well, relatively! maybe £1 million) for university for my sister and I, a deposit on a reasonable sized first house, paying off my parent's mortgage etc., then maybe set up some sort of research fund or something with most of it...

    You could establish your own college (or three) at Cambridge and award yourself honorary degrees, maybe even make yourself a permanent student. I'm certain they would be happy with it for that kind of cash.

    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.

    EDIT: Am I being negged because I said TSR would be in pink? I am willing to change that to cerise.

    That's OK! Was it the cerise thing? It's such a nice colour scheme, I wish I had one of those packages that re-colourises your favourite websites, so I could put TSR into a cerise and lilac skin. However, I want to make it compulsory for all users, not just me. It's a generosity thing.

    As a free offer for all users, I would also fix the site and make it work properly.

    I'd give a billion to charity.

    I'd give my friends a massive amount of money.

    I'd then buy my way into med school somewhere.

    Yes, it was delightful to find out their story! To say it is a "rags to riches" story is a great understatement - that's a hell of a lot of cash; not your average millions :lol:

    They've experienced the worst of life; now they've been blessed with the chance to experience the high life. Well done to them.

    But surely we'd want competent doctors in hospitals? Why would you buy your way in? What if you're actually unsuitable? :hmmm:
