    Not sure if this has been done before, but I just had a search for a similar thread, and nothing recent came up :confused: so decided to start one up (I normally wouldn't have done it :eek: ).

    So, what would you do if you found out you won a large sum of money?

    For instance, if you were me, you'd make sure the cheque was signed, verified, and safely in your hands/bank before you did anything with it

    Other that than, I guess I'd use some of it for personal things - e.g. car, and the rest for building sancturies around the world to rescue animals Always has been on of my dreams

    Lol got the idea for this thread from a radio station, but was wanting to post rather than start up a thread but nevermind.

    I know it sounds cliche, but I'd like to give to lots of charities and (very naively) attempt to possibly solve world problems in bono-esque manner

    after that, i would splurge on me

    Well...I would actually stay on the same track as i plan to follow now...do a PhD, study volcanoes and travel the world to do so...ofcourse, it would be a lot easier to do all that studying without any of the day-to-day hassles many people put up with....

    I would pay of my parents house, buy my brother a new car, me an old banger cos I still can't drive and keep hitting things, then make sure all my family and friends were ok then use the money to help people, charities and stuff. I'd still go to Uni, cos I'd miss my mates, but it would be nice not to have the worry of money!
