One Million Dollars
« on: March 28, 2012, 11:25:27 PM »
What if you won a million dollars, what would you do 1st?


I would buy all my family and friends huge fancy houses. I would give money to charity. I would do a lot of traveling. I would go on a Haunted Alton tour (cause I can NEVER afford it lol). I would take bass guitar lessons and acoustic guitar lessons. And there is probably more that I cannot think of right now, lol.

And you?

I would buy a plot of land in northern sweden and build a almost village of houses for all my family to live in, since we're all spread about the world it would be nice for us to unite in one place. We're English but my other half is a Swede and sweden rocks!
 Other than that I'd pay off my student debts lol

A million dollars? Chicken feed in 2012 =(

Thats about GB £600,000. In terms of property it wouldn't buy much in England. I think I'd probably move back to Canada and use the loose change left over to send everyone I know a "Here is my new address" card.

Now, if you had said THIRTEEN million dollars, I would buy Mamhead House.

For any who are interested, you actually can win 1 million. 

http://www.randi.org/site/index.php/1m-challenge.html

This kind of stuff boggles my mind:
1.3 How many people have applied for the Challenge?

Between 1964 and 1982, Randi declared that over 650 people had applied. Between 1997 and February 15, 2005, there had been a total of 360 official, notarized applications. Applications continue to pour in!

1.4 Has anyone ever gotten past the preliminary test?

No. Some people use this fact as a reason not to apply – and yet the protocol is never altered once the applicant agrees to it. In fact, we ask the applicant to design the test.

1.5 Has anyone taken the formal test?

No. Applicants must pass the preliminary test in order to move on to a formal test. So far, no one has ever performed the paranormal ability they claimed to have.


If paranormal powers are real, demonstrate them, and you can win 1 million dollars.  I would imagine that the overwhelming majority of the public would love an extra 1 million in their bank.  Stuff like this only strengthens my belief that there is nothing supernatural.

I would most likely invest it into some type of acreage with a small log cabin styled house on it.  Something simplistic ,but up to do date.  Some playing room to say for hunting and other outdoor excursions that I have time for!  Not something big and up scale.  I would probably save the rest for a rainy day.

Hmm. That's like 40 million Php....... Enough for a building or two in a developing city, Which I could rent out to interested businesses, and  thus have a stable income hands free.

Enough of an income to travel the world to indefinitely, Party hard once a week, Support a rather comfortable lifestyle, Or If you were feeling entrepreneurial, start your own business and rake in more cash. Alternately you could place it into a high yield  trust fund and live off the interest while still having a  large amount of liquid currency for personal use for whatever reason.

Personally, I'd go to china and learn "secret/forbidden"martial arts...... Just cause. :lol:

Half to a variety of local charities, particularly the ones that help me in my current time of needs, it'll help our local economy. give my family enough to keep them off my back, get a small house, probably the one I'm renting now, an account holding enough to pay property taxes off the interest, clear up my significant credit problems, assure my daughters will have enough for any college they want...set up my small metals forge and then travel selling my metal work and other art creations where ever the wind blows me.

My splurge would be my dream vacation, start out on the very southern coast of England and meander my way up to the highlands of Scotland to see the wishart society, i'm the great grand daughter of the last wisharts in Montana.  :D

we've even got a local road, crest and tartan.
