    So you wouldn't use it to buy a car or go on holiday?

    No, I have a car and can afford to take holidays already.

    It's not really a "life changing" amount of money is it?

    Still wouldn't say no to it tho.

    doesn't matter how rich you are, 10 grand wont get anyone very far these days at all. A billionaire would consider 10 grand as pocket change.

    £10000 is a lot of money, yes. I assume this is about Ronnie O'Sullivan turning down the 147? Unless you've just posted this coincidentally.

    £10,000 could be life changing to some people. In my area that could be enough to get a mortgage.

    I'd take a holiday and then save the rest.

    It wouldn't necessarily be life changing but I would definitely take it because it's still a good bit of money. Could buy a decent car with it or go on a pretty nice holiday or just have one massive TREAT YO SELF day

    i know a guy in the restaurant trade who used to spend a grand every time he came n and he was worth £50million so i'd say half a billion

    Hell yes. I've never seen anywhere close to that amount of money in my life.

    While I don't think £10k would change my life completely, it would definitely have a very positive impact (how could it not?) - it depends on how you're going to spend it as to the extent it would change your life, I suppose.

    And on the second question, I'm not sure - it all depends on the person's attitude toward money. Personally, even if I became a millionnaire, I don't think I could ever see £10k as pocket change because it's still money that has a lot of value, even if its value would seem less in comparison to my wealth.

    Ronnie O'Sullivan rich.

    But in all seriousness. £10,000, although might help the general population out, it's a miniscule amount in the big scheme of things. That being said, an extra £10,000 wouldn't go amiss.

    There are very few restaurants in the world where you can spend £10000 unless you're buying loads of VERY fancy wine. Even at three Michelin-starred places the food bill will run into hundreds, not thousands.

    £10k is still a lot of money to me, albeit probably less than for proper students on here.

    I'd probably spend that money on a new computer and other tech stuff.
