Well firstly I'd force myself to stall, think about what I'm doing and not rush into spending a huge chunk of it. Then I'd probably get a spontaneous flight somewhere and stay in the best hotels for a few weeks. Then go home and buy a kick ass house in Edinburgh (that probably should have been the first move...). I'd love to build a racing track out the back and have cool cars to just mess about with Oh yeah, and I'd need a driving licence! I'd want stables as well. I'd give my fiance however much he wanted and probably see every little piece of technology that exists come in the door the next day. Who am I kidding, the same day!!!
I'd give some to diabetes research and other charities. I'd pay off my relations mortgages (providing they don't treat me like crap now), possibly buy my brother a house and finally get that extension on my parents house. I'd like to set up a charity/business to get people off the streets but I have no idea how yet. I have that idea anyway, just a smaller version!
I'd still to at least try to get a job in Biomedical Science but I probably wouldn't be as fussed about it. And I wouldn't have to think about the price of fabrics for my other little business lol

I wouldnt donate any, but I'd travel and do some charitable work.
Then I'd give my family a billion probably... I'd buy a decent detatched by the sea, a nice modern flat in greater London, an Alfa, an Aston and a big boat. Got to have a big boat. I'd travel to every continent and just roam for months
Then I'd proably get to Vegas and loose it all.

You could live very comfortably on $100 million, let alone $10 billion.
1) So I'd first off buy my Mum the house in Orkney she wants, along with a private airplane so my grandparents, family etc can all move around to see each other.
2) Buy my Step-Dad a proper kiln, and a place to use it, so he can continue his pottery.
3) Buy my own houses in Whistler, Morzine, Leogang and other biking areas.
4) Buy all of these, pay off the mortgage to all of these.
5) Give my family $200 million each; to pay for what they will.
6) Keep $300 million for myself and set $700 million in the bank.
7) Give some to my friends, as I'd have more then enough for that.
8) Give all the rest to Charity, as there's no way I'd be able to spend it all. Allocate it towards Cancer Research primarily, along with every other disease charity / research. Give around $1 billion towards victims suffering within severe poverty.
9) Donate money towards research into space, space travel, colonies on the Moon, Mars, etc. Though, what I could donate to that wouldn't, probably, last long.

- Share about 2 billion between family members
- Put 3 Billion in the bank

- Give the rest to charities, etc

As Frankie Boyle says, I would write '**** off Germany on the moon'. And possibly France too.

Buy / build an amazing house for me and one for my parents.
Buy an amazing car.
Go on a tour of the world.
Invest in some good companies.
Donate some to charity.
Put the rest in a bank on a good plan (and will therefore live off the interest that the money accumulates in the bank).
- 11-04-2011 12:49
Pay for my education
Go to some third world nation to literally donate around five billion dollars to the poor/homeless, not through some third party agent.
Share three billion with family.
Invest in huge properties/houses all over the world.
Invest in stocks
Travel around the world

i'd solve the UK's homeless issue - hate seeing homeless people on streets. Go traveling forever!!!!!!! I got back from 5 months travelling around the world in december and I really miss travelling. It was so amazing I could happily do it some more. After that i'd become a property developer and buy, fix up and sell houses (part time of course), a few days a week i'd try do something for charity. Oh and I'd buy a huge house that is a castle in the country side and kit it out like playboy mansion inc. all the hot women
on that note, i keep winning £10 in the lottery - good omen? I play every sat, and i've won like £40 or £50 playing the same two lines of numbers every saturday! that's £40/50 in the last 5 weeks, so i'm winning like once a week if not ever two weeks - very very weird I hope i get the big one soonLast edited by blue_shift86; 11-04-2011 at 12:55.

I'd laugh in the face of millionaires

$10bn? Hm, I'd probably stop buying Asda Smart Price and start buying normal brand stuff that doesn't taste like cardboard! With the leftover money, I'll probably buy the moon and project my Sharingan onto it. I'd then build my own Metal Gear.

I'd buy 10 billion lottery tickets

Buy houses in NY, California, Sydney, Melbourne, Paris, Cannes, Berlin, Rome, tuscanny region, London, Cornwall and a couple of manor style country retreats. I think that would take up a good £500 million. I would then have them all kitted out in B&O equiptment, have them professionally re-designed to my taste, have it so that wherever I was going my mercedes SLS amg, ferrari italia, rolls royce phantom, aston martin vanquish, db9 and lambourghini murceillago (or however you spell it) would be there waiting for me.
With my parents house I would buy it out of course and then send them away for a 10 week world tour whilst the house was being extended, the gardens landscaped and the interior's interior designed. I would also take my dad to saville row, then go to a jewllers and get a nice collection of watches. Mum would have a shopping spree too.
This would mean that I would take a year of two gap year but I still think I would go to uni, just for knowledge sake.
The fact of the matter is, even if you tithed what you won you just physically would not be able to spend all of that money, you could be going on million pound shopping sprees and still it would barely make a dent!

Buy an island. Or even a group of islands for family/friends.
Pay off all my relative's mortgages.
Buy my mum a boat and help her set up the charity she's always wanted.
Buy my dad a rugby team.
My brothers can have 2 billion each provided they get a degree (Until they're old enough for uni, they can have kickass xmas presents though).
Put enough in the bank that I can live in luxury forever.
And whatever's left I'd invest in charities where I could be directly involved and see that it's not misused..

Set up my own F1 team.
Win the WDC and WCC.

Don't think you have to worry, love. You have 10 freaking billion.
I'd give 5bil to the boyf, 1bil to the 'rents and then go crazy with the rest of the money, but I'd make sure I had 5 million safely saved somewhere so I couldn never accidentally bankrupt myself (dunno how I would ever do that. XD)
I'd have a lovely custom wedding dress, awesome wedding reception, buy the cutest clothes, buy loads of foreign language books and learning materials, go on lots of trips with the boyf and travel a lot, buy him an awesome macho car, buy myself a cute little car, pay for our house extention, buy another house in another city, get the best furnishings, order some Dominos pizza and bask in my awesomeness. ;D
I forgot charity. I'd give a lot to charity as well, of course. Don't intend to have kids to pass on the money too, so...hello cats home!
To answer the question, I wouldn't tell a soul.
