    Lali ho!

    Recently my friend Suzie has been starting pretty much every conversation with the words 'If I won the lottery I would...'. She's usually referring to the frankly ludicrous rollover jackpots you see on Euromillions, like when it was £160 million or something along those lines. And we've all thought about it, let's be honest. So, in an effort to get to know my fellow 'Tempers a little better, I thought I'd ask what YOU would do with that sort of money. Let's say for example it was a 100 million of whatever your chosen currency is. What would you do? Invest? Donate a tonne towards curing diseases and saving lives? Piss it all away in the most epic possible fashion? Let us know. I'll start things off.

    1) Offer a HUGE reward to any Square Enix employees who are willing to start work on the long rumoured FF7 remake, if only to A) shut the fanboys up, and B) put this love triangle thing to rest once and for all so people stop flaming me for not reviving Aerith in my fanfic when I had a blatant opportunity to. I would also buy a fully functional replica of Cloud's 'Fenrir' bike. 'Cause it's pimp. And a fully functional Ragnarok won't be happening for several decades at the very best.

    2) Find a copy of Silent Bomber for the PS1 that DOESN'T freeze at the end of level 10, so I can finally finish the damn thing after buying a copy a year for the last decade and always ending up with the same sodding glitch. Would be nice to tick that fucker off my 'to-do' list.

    3) Spend a small fortune on setting myself up for life, then donate a shedload to worthy charities, then whatever's left once I've made sure I can do whatever I want for the rest of my life without worry, piss the rest away by going into the biggest game store in the world and asking for one of everything.

    4) Buy myself an F14D Super Tomcat fighter jet and have it painted in the Sakura/Cherry Blossom paint scheme from Ace Combat, then have it parked on my front lawn of my mansion. Fully armed just for the lols. In fact it'd be my burglar alarm. Have it hooked up to motion detectors and if you don't disarm it from the front gate, it fires missiles at any cars then guns down the survivors with a heavy machine gun. That'd teach people not to fuck with me.

    5) Buy a crossbow and shoot Justin Bieber in the eye socket, then bribe every member of the jury and the judge and everyone else of importance to let me off.

    And that's just for starters.

    What about you lot?

    I thought about that, but then I already have a girlfriend and to me drugs are all about escaping reality. If your reality is you have so much money you can afford to do whatever, whenever, I don't see any reason to escape that.

    Also, if for whatever reason a crossbow should be difficult to acquire, I'd settle for a tomahawk. That'd show the little pussy what a real fear of thrown objects is about. heheheheh. [​IMG]

    I would get rid of my Audi, because it is so god damn expensive to fix (Well, then again... I would have money!) and probably get a Subaru (Which would be like $5k if I sold my Audi). I just need to get places. I don't care about all that junk in the car I never use.

    Then use like $1k on just stuff I want, but don't need. Like some more music gear. Maybe some video game stuff?

    And... save the rest for college.

    I know. Boring...

    I would split the money between me and charity. I'm not exactly sure what I would do with the money, though. [​IMG]

    Buy a furnished house. Then put everything into a stable account and live off interest with vacations and whatnot.

    Buy the best phone on the market, then put a small percentage for emergencies and enough to pay for college then get rid of it probably by giving to charity. I want to live life with my money earned by me, not an easy life bought with "magic money" everything taste/feels better when worked and earned.

    I'd buy a bunch of games or build a new computer and put the rest in my college savings.

    I'd be boring and put it in the bank.

    If I was interesting, and the prize was huge... an Iron Man suit. I would have one constructed for me, preferably with wi-fi capabilities. I would use my great power to bring about world peace, and party during my off time.

    That, gentlemen, is a dream worth living for.

    I'd probably save 95% of it for later use in my life (like university tuition). The other 5% can buy me some new games or clothes, or just be slotted out for everyday use.

    Take out 20% for me to use.

    Have 80% build up interest for 2-3 years. Take out the amount gained, repeat. And in a seperate account, so I would still have a main.


    And the money I use would be:
    To upgrade to a computer that actually has 2 to 4 cores. (I'm running a single core Windows XP pc from 2001. Dunno how it handles everything I tell it to do.)
    Buy other electronics.
    Get a car.
    Gas.

    Buy GBAtemps URL rights and become the "owner" of it (But basicaly do nothing technical to it just for the title of being the owner of GBAtemp). Give $5000 to HERO and put the rest in the bank and retire and live on the interest I get from putting it in the bank.

    EDIT:
    GBAtemp will be the exact same nothing change just I have the title of GBAtemp Owner and have the Ultimate power.
