I would then enroll in the Make a Wish foundation, and offer to host any kids that want to come out and operate the heavy equipment (with an experienced co-pilot) and play to their heart's content. That would be really fun.

Make the equipment remote controlled via Xbox controler and the kids will be as good as professionals inside of 15 minutes.


So true!

I would have a huge household staff.

I'd start off with 6 to 8 personal assistants, so that there's always two on staff round the clock. Think Pepper Potts from Iron Man, except a half dozen of them.

Then I'd have a team of drivers and private security. I want enough drivers so that I could have at least 3 follow vehicles at any given time. Drive the sports car to dinner, have a few drinks, make a few friends, plenty of space to haul everyone to the next party and enough drivers to bring my car with me so I wouldn't have to drive.

I'd have three of those huge, beautiful motor coaches, that act as support vehicles for my filthy rich lifestyle. One would serve as the rest area and kitchen for my support staff. One would be for myself. The last would be modified into one huge lounge/bar space.

I would have a real estate staff that would simply buy high-end properties in advance of my travel/visit, decorate and move all of my favorite personal belongings into the space before my arrival, and then flip the property when I am bored with it or when the market was favorable. I would also have a fleet of haulers to move my cars and furniture around the world as I traveled.

While I would spend most of my time living in any one of my numerous "vacation properties," my home address would be a castle built ontop of a skyscraper like in the cartoon "Gargoyles"

Lastly, I would genetically engineer and selectively breed miniature giraffes. Or firstly. It might be the reason I am so filthy rich.

A valid point.

Does it really matter? Wink


Exactly. (And more Scarlett.)

Now you're just being greedy. It's two chicks at the same time, not three. I guess if you count for inflation, maybe you'll need three?

IMO, if you want to really express contempt of the peasantry, travel via carriage, pulled by black Friesians

Mostly, I'd just poke around. Not too big on hoopla, though a jet and a driver could be handy

I'll tell you what I'd do, man: two chicks at the same time, man. Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I were a millionaire I could hook that up, too; 'cause chicks dig dudes with money.

I'd redo my sock drawer with nice wool socks for work, pay someone to help me set up my woodwork shop down at the barn, get the gravel drive to the barn sprayed with something that kills everything green forever, and go back and buy that laser guided sliding miter saw that SWMBO made me return to Harbor Freight. That thing was sweet....

I'd tithe of course,and 10% of "unlimited" would do a lotta good around here. Then I would take time off to travel with my wife, then wife/family when we got tired of traveling with just us two.

I would buy a P-51 Mustang and learn to fly it. I'd have to have a lot of life insurance, too, so my wife wouldn't worry so much.

"Unlimited"?

Crush Socialism worldwide. That's the altruistic answer of course.

The selfish answer?

I think the world needs new made versions of super classy vintage milestone firearms. A C93 Borchard done in charcoal blue, color case hardened frame and in a modern caliber. Maybe, no definitely the same thing withe the C96 Mauser.
Smith and Wesson Triple Lock.... Etc, etc,

Then cars. The world needs a new made Jaguar XJ 13. Scrap the Brit power train and throw in a BMW S62 ans 6 speed manual.

Now we get crazy. The world (OK, probably just me) needs a reliable, flyable JU 88. No reason, I just think it was a good solid aircraft, and it's sad there aren't any flying today.

Flowers! I'd have an army of gardeners for the acres of gardens I would have. Fresh flower arrangements all over the house.

And flowers for any poor soul in a nursing home or hospital that would enjoy them.
