    The first few years would probably be traveling, booze and gambling. Hopefully in that time found someone to settle down with and just live off the interest

    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.
    Putting an end to the Tory party would be brilliant for UKIP!

    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
    Yes, yes and YES! :yep:

    I'd love to play a high stakes cash game with Dwan, Ivey, Negreanu, Lakk, Tony G and Helmuth.

    You've just found out that you're to inherit a massive £4 billion fortune from a previously unknown long-lost relative who has just died. The fortune is to be passed down to the next of kin and you are that person.

    What do you do now? What do you do with the money?




    An actual real life story:
    1)pay off any current debts (e.g. student) and save money for any future debts (e.g. house)
    2)work out how much i spend annually, then save up what is equivalent of a lifetimes worth
    3)pay off parents debt if they have any
    4)think of what to do with the remaining money...

    whatever happens to the money in the fourth point is technically irrelevant... all financial issues i would ever have would be removed completely and hence will never have money problems


    im not sure i would buy things with the left over money... ill probably end up getting used to getting fancy stuff (mainly technology, which i dont think have a good resale price), then when i run out and everything becomes obsolete, im screwed...materialism can be a *****...

    ill probably send some to charity and put the rest into my hobbies... e.g. buy parts to build a computer, buy equipment to try and build a robot, buy lumber to sculpt a grandfather clock like you see that kid do in class in the cleveland show etc...

    mine above is pretty similar, in the same order too, except screw the friend bit... if they want some, theyll have to fight each other for it... deathmatch style :pierre:

    I'd put it in a bank account and pretty much live as I wanted, but not a lot would change initially as I'd want to finish my degree. After that I'd just pursue things that interested me with friends, as really what I could do with that amount of money is fairly unlimited.

    Buy huge houses for my family members and for me
    Buy houses as investment properties, rent them out
    Invest in a business, not sure what type though

    Then I'd go on a huge long holiday, buy cars and clothes etc, basically buy anything I've ever wanted
    & also give some to two charities: Diabetes Uk and Little Hearts Matter

    Get very over excited and probably faint. But I'd try and keep it quiet because apparently if you win the lottery and stuff people find you and send loads of depressing letters to you. I would probably put a lot of money into cancer research and dementia.

    Also money to my mum, stepdad, sister probably offer to pay a lot of my cousin's wedding, my auntie and my gran would get a money too. I'm not really close with any other members of my family.

    Also I'd buy so many clothes and pretty things.

    Buy a holiday to Aus and NZ and Japan for the bf and me. Also a 3d ds for the bf.

    Big trip for my friends and buy lots of presents. Buy a giant library and fill it with fantasy books. Tell Brandan Sanderson to shake a leg with his way of kings book.

    Finish uni.

    Then save the rest

    I would buy a football team, maybe one in the midlands of this country, because there isn't a big club there right now, but it has a huge population so loads of glory hunting fans would move over to my team plus there is loads of space for a huge stadium. Also, clubs like Birmingham and Villa are all really **** right at the moment, so I could probably pick one up for a good price. I really want this to happen now. :cry2:

    That's an awesome line up

    Although personally i'd have Blom over Tony G as he annoys me

    First thing I'd do is give a couple of million or so to my parents. Enough so they could retire now and live in comfort for the rest of their lives.

    I'd like to do something charitable with the rest. Or invest it so I keep making more money which I give to charity.

    Of course it's easy to say that when it's just hypothetical. Chances are I'd be much more selfish if it really did happen.

    Donate half of it to charity because you can still afford everything with 2billion anyway.
    I'd buy a big house in a desolate area with a nice view, i'd buy myself a nice Japanese sports car and i'd give some money to the family. With the spare money, i'll do loads of practical things and maybe invest some money into starting a business...
