Unlimited funds, heh? Well, little Kim would need to GTFO of town for starters. Oh, and this could be a warning to the Left and some other notables.

Of course there's charity work to be done.

I'm sure somewhere in there would be a good SigForum karma.

I'd live in a old Soviet Submarine, that I've buried in my front lawn, with only the conning tower visible.
And I'd conduct Mis-ile drills, while my neighbors listen to their "Rockn' roll".

Nothing eccentric really. Acreage and I mean a lot in Wyoming or Montana. Be far away from my neighbors.
Nice house but nothing ungodly big as it would probably be just me and the dog. Daughter could go to college anywhere she wanted to.
Couple of 4WD trucks, Z06 Corvette and a touring bike of some kind(HD, Honda, etc.).


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

A personal donut slapper. He'd follow me everywhere and if I pick up a doughnut, he slaps it out of my hand.

Oh, and a guy to kick the donut slapper's ass.

A shit load of guns, a bunch of dogs, and a house somewhere removed from the general population.

Probably a lot of Star Wars crap too


And I would also become Iron Man.... 'cause why not, he's rich too.

And I would hire people to follow around radio DJs who talk over the beginning of songs, and any time that DJ tries to speak, this person would talk over him. Everywhere they go. Every time they try and speak.

And a Slurpee machine

This being a firearms enthusiasts' forum, I wouldn't expect a gun collection to be "eccentric." It should go without saying. Big Grin

Not too eccentric but I'd like a huge workshop with everything from basic hand tools to cnc mills and lathes. The capability to fix or create anything my imagination can come up with would be my dream.

I know this nice little place up in the wilderness of N. Idaho. And I mean wilderness!

Only 2 ways to get there. Horseback (long ride) or float down the river and hike.

The place has hot springs, plenty of fresh water, no roads and lots of game.

Hot springs are large enough that some enterprising individuals put in a retaining pond made of railroad ties. About 10x20 feet.

Plenty of that hot spring water to use as a heat source for the winter.

And when I die, they would eventually find my mummified remains with a big smile on my face.

I would try to work at every type of job imaginable. Then I would try to see much I could do/not do before getting fired. After being fired I would buy the company and walk into my former bosses office to see the look on his face and then tell him im just fucking with you and walk out.

I would buy a huge orchard in Floriduh and start a homeless shelter where work is exchanged for food, housing, healthcare and rehab. Travel arrangements to the orchard are no cost to the homeless. Come to the orchard, get clean, straighten out your life and leave with funds to start over based on your production. Voluntary moral community living. We sell what we produce. I'll lose money, but it's not about the money.

Also, I'd throw a huge week long SIGforum partee some where in Texas. Free travel to all SIGforum members and their families. Liberal members fly via United AL. All are invited, free food, free housing in cabanas, all day access to the range with unlimited ammo. No peeing in the pools. Continual BBQs running for the week. Donut slappers available upon request. Sport and training related activities during the day and music, dancing and meeting in the evening. What could possibly go wrong? Big Grin

I would have my entire right hand colored red. Tattooed or however.

Then I would buy as much of my small home town as I could and build a huge dark palace on it, think Lord of the Rings. I would stand on my balcony five nights a week and make the people from my town debase themselves for things they consider valuable.

You want a Harley Davidson? Simple, drink this gallon of urine in front of your family.

You want a new Jeep? Admit publicly your most shaming secrets. To the crowd I mean. I will judge if what you have admitted to is worth your precious Jeep.

I would also purchase the local Christian tv station and host a show where people would call in and talk about their fellow citizens, neighbors, family, etc. I would offer a tier of rewards based upon the informations potential for shame, and obviously truth.

To that end and my own personal safety I would hire an army of veterans to protect me and investigate things.

That's a nice truck, isn't it? Yes, a nice "rig" indeed. How badly do you want it? This "rig"? What would you be willing to do or tell me to have it?

I would blast Born In The USA and Uptown Girl while doing these things. I would hire Fred Durst to emcee, which the people would love and be excited about, then have one of my soldiers beat him to death in front of the onlookers. There would be huge concert sized monitors showing people's homemade sex tapes, disgusting public behavior, etc during "Family Fun Fest." I may also hire agents to have people degrade themselves in a studio for prizes or cash as well. With the understanding that "no one would EVER see the video". Then obviously show the video to the crowd. Not all of them, though. So there will still be ambiguity about whether or not I will show it publicly.

Who would be willing to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Mr. Durst's corpse while his Magnum Opus "I Did It All For The Nookie" is played in tribute? You sir?

UNLIMITED funds?

I'd buy the entire west coast (California, Oregon, and Washington states) and kick all the liberals out.

I'd build a 100 foot high wall along the border with Mexico that also extended 100 feet into the ground.

There would be a 50 foot wide moat running along behind it filled with piranha and alligators. It would be manned 24x7 by ex-spec-ops guys with all the artillery they could want, one every few hundred yards or so.

I'd demolish all the structures I didn't want and turn LA into the world's largest racetrack.

I'd spend summers in the north and winters in the south, with houses scattered randomly near all the attractions I'd build for myself.

I'd have the world's largest shooting complex and longest rifle range, and the world's best sport fishing (both fresh and salt).

All the staff to man my attractions would live there at reasonable rates (not $360k for a 1 bedroom townhouse!), and all my friends would be invited to stay in the finest hotels near the attractions for $100/night.

Everyone over the age of 18 would be required to carry a handgun, and crime, any crime, would be dealt with swiftly and HARSHLY.

The eastern border would be closed, and entry would be by invite or appointment only.

The only residents would be employees, or friends who I know share my views - and again, real estate prices would be very reasonable. Something tells me most of the forum would move to my wonderland. There'd be plenty of room.

The only reason I'd charge at all is so to make guests/employees have "some skin in the game" and not turn it into a socialist wasteland when things are given away for free.
