Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
OP, if you are serious, WOW!

May I make a suggestion?

This is going to be kinda long, BUT please bare with me and take the time to read.

Instead of helping just one person, why not help many. What I mean is, instead of giving one person $5 MIL, why not divide it up and give according to an individuals needs?

But if you go with your original plan of giving 5 mil to just one person and say I was that person, here's what I would do with the money.

Remember, the most important gift a person can receive is love. And it's weird, but I've noticed a change in attitudes in the posts I've been reading. Not only on this thread, but others also. It seems there's been a shift on here within the last 24 to 48 hrs.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Something in the atmosphere has changed and for once, it's something good and positive.

Absolutely Amazing!!!!!!!!

Love you all! God bless all of you!
 Quoting: miss ronni


I guess it is time for me to post something long. I feel after reading all these stories and watching what has taken place on this post I feel it is time I say something back to you all.
So here it goes.

I guess the first thing I want to answer is; "Why did I post this?". That part is easy. And this I give a highlight to the folks behind GLP. This medium everyone shares their thoughts on is pretty unique. You see so many people from all over the world coming here. They come to inform, ask questions, be silly, vent, ect. Many would believe that everyone is bound together here because of the conspiracies, or the rooted fascination with doom. But not I. I see something else in it all. And that is why I started this tread, And what that is I will tell you later on in this response. So first and foremost, I just want to direct this to the GLP staff. You have a great thing here, with a lot of power and something that can do a hell of a lot of good. I believe in GLP, and good on you all.

I have read through every post, word for word. Some have been funny. Like the fancy hookers and a 3D TV response. Or the others saying they would burn it all because it means nothing anyway. I sat here making notes, remembering names, and as the posts continued through page 5 then 6, on into 10, I started to see a pattern. Some straight out said they would be happy with a fraction of a 5Mil, others had great ideas they would love to put in to play, in hopes that it would do such great things it would change others lives.
Some said they wanted to break free from control, start something that helps them be more self sustaining, and at the same time teach and benefit others with it.

The ones that shared their true hardships. Loosing their homes, or the desire to do something really good for their parents and kids. Those are the ones I watched closely. Not because it is a sob story, but because of the attitude of the poster. You get a small snippet as to how rough things are, yet you see this brilliant light under it all. They haven't given up, they may be down but not out for the count. Then along with those that are fighting, others came with words of encouragement. From what I have read I even noticed that some found out they were close neighbors and share the same thoughts. Kinda cool to see that in that case, you both may have found an extra helping hand for each other, in each other just because of this post.

Some have simply said thank you for giving them the chance to say these things. To express their dreams or share their hopes and in some cases, they even said because of it they feel more focused as to what they should be doing. You see, its easy for the world to slowly and quietly slip a hood over our head that cuts off our senses. Our drive and ambition, to numb us with the illusion that we are actually living when in fact we are not. We have been sedated. So for those that suddenly feel that their sails have been somewhat filled again because you were able to share the things you want to do with life, do not let those sails be void of wind. Stay focused on it. Yeah, it is hard, it is really hard. And sometimes you feel like you will never get there, but the truth is, nothing worth it is ever easy.
In one post the person said that if it wasnt for their kids, her and her husband would have just given up by now. For that I say to you; "DO NOT EVER GIVE UP." If you are just fighting for the sake of the kids, then you are not doing any favors to them. I am not trying to be harsh here, so please dont take it that way. But I am saying, this. Fight for your self, your mate, your kids, your parents, your friends, and hell, for all the people that have posted here. Even if all some want are a fancy hooker, fight for them to. (Haha) In my experience I have learned that any saturation of doubt, of defeat, it spreads like cancer. You may not see it outright, or feel the sharp pain, but it kills things around you. So in short. Don't give up.

Health. Living, dieing. These are the hard ones. So many people die because they can not afford something. A treatment or a drug. Sometimes because someone didnt have enough pieces of paper something has gone un-discovered and its too late to treat. Or at least makes it harder. You can look all around the world and find this. And frankly it makes me sick. If we have the ability to cure, or treat, then it should be freely given. Sadly though the world machine is a monster. And the rules of that monster are forged with something that can not be broken easy.
Although, just from this post alone I saw ways to help some people that are in a situation, but I have to think on it some more. As miss ronni asked, "Why not break it up and help lots of people." Well sadly that is a hard one to do just because of the Tax and other legal stuff that sometimes arises. (Trust me their are many.) It is much better to just give a big lump, make sure taxes are paid on that lump and walk away with the hopes whom ever will really do some good for them, and others.
Also lets say the person that is giving away a big chunk of Cha-Ching wants to do it as under the radar as they can,a big bit is better, faster, and if done right; "Quiet"

I still want to see what happens on this post. I will keep reading each and every one. I will say that I think I have made up my mind on something and other ideas are still forming. But I want to let you know, something like this isnt easy to do, to make a choice but when one is, it will be quiet, but you will know when it happens.

Hi OP, I put the post on page 20 from OZ Anonymous Coward
User ID: 1435486 regarding recycling mentor program and community etc....

In regards to your mind boggling decision and the post above may I highly recommend exploring a foundation to avoid high taxes, GST etc. One Freedom Fighter gentleman in Oz for years has been assisting multiple occupancy, farmers and families with foundations that are being set up in NZ and OZ with a process from one major bank as non profit organisations. I can assist more with information so "gift taxes and such" that can be legally minimized so the majority/ALL the funds goes to a good purpose. Is there a way to send you further information for confidentiality purposes via email?

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
ok.. first id go buy my mom a house then id go get like a lambo sitting on Dubs...

then id go get some fresh threads.. then id go holla at my mexican patna's and buy alot of cocaine and marijuana so that i could flip it. cuz when u got big money you blow it fast.. so if i had the drugs id have money coming in while its also goin out.

see the dollars value is decreasing.. drug prices will always stay within a certain margin.. everyone one of you should invest in some dope..

id probably buy some stock.. most likely invest in brazil..

id spend some of it on hookers..

id like try to get a ticket on that plane that goes to space so that i could see what its like up there..

id go buy a macdonalds in the hood.. with free meals for homeless people. or something along those lines. or instead of free meals.. id just give them all the left overs from the day since all that shit gets thrown away anyways..

id drop like 250,000 of that and put it on the GLP telescope project.. and id probably drop like 1 million of it to try and get a GLP space rocket project going or somethin..

then once i spend it all.. ill just continue sellin dope.. and be the new age pablo escobar..

thats what id do if u really had an extra 5 mil to give away and actually gave it to me. real shit..

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
Once again, either I was unclear, or you can't get what I'm saying through a filter.

To clarify:

If you think of Mother Theresa, you think of the bible.

If you were an outstanding, notable person, you could make people think of the Bhagavad Gita.

I wasn't referring to magic tricks.

Be the asset to humanity that you speak of, and people will seek out the Gita. Pass it out door to door and you'll be lucky if they use it to prop up a broken end table.


Printing books and distibution is called the bigger drum, brihat mridunga. Because a book can reach across time, place and circumstance. The mridanga(drum) is limited by proximity and sound. printing books has been one of the mainstays of Sanatana-Dharma for the last 5000+ yrs, our passion comes from the Vaisnava school liniage that started with Arjuna in Bhagavad-Gita. The chain is unbroken!

In today's world a real phenomena easily goes unnoticed. As pearls are cast before swine. If you need a magic trick, then you are third class picked up, at best. If you are willing by quality and action, then you will be FIRST class trained up! An asset to humanity and the planet.

There are many interpretations of Bhagavad-Gita. But there is only one As It Is!

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
The first thing I would wonder is how you intend to contact a chosen individual or people? Then again, I would assume that if you truly have that kind of money to freely part with you probably also have the faculties and money to track down any individual or persons which you chose.

Next, since I am a dreamer and a doer, and no one would even bother posting to this thread without some sort of hope-unless they were just posting to be funny-I shall provide you with my answer.


I would very carefully choose what I were to do with the sudden wealth, as it would be very unlikely that I would ever have such a windfall of love again, so all that I state here would actually be a rough plan and my economic decisions might be subject to change dependent upon current laws, events, and whatever economic advice (thoroughly double-checked by myself) that I was given.

I would achieve long-term financial stability for myself and my family with just 1 million. I've never owned a home and I've never owned a car that was less than 15 years old. I've been a factory worker all of my life and I didn't used to think money was all that important, otherwise I'd be doing much better now because I would have made better finanical decisions. In the past six years or so I awoke to the reality of good financial skills and I am much more prudent with whatever money I do acquire, so 1 million would not only get myself and my family all that we required for much of the rest of our lives (with the exception of income), but it would also do a bit more than that.

I'd spend no more than $200,000 on a home and land, in the country, and less if I could swing it, because if you are patient some pretty good deals will always arise. With another $50,000 I would get myself and my parents a new or near new vehicle (mine is currently the only one and it is not inspected, the brakes are out, etc., though I do thank God for providing us with the $10 we needed to fix it) which can be done if you are very careful with your money. I would probably spend another $5,000 or so to convert my parents' vehicle for my mother who is physically disabled. I would then spend another $3,000 on a used car to use as the primary mode of transportation...this would allow me a back-up vehicle (actually, I'd have two backups with their car counted) since it is very difficult to take my mother to her appointments when the car is broke down. Then, I would spend no more than $50,000 total on furniture, appliances and other household goods, as well as outdoor lawn/garden care supplies for the home.

I might state here that my parents live with me. My mother, as I said, is physically handicapped and has Parkinson's disease, and my father has an aortic anuerysm that makes extreme physical activity quite dangerous. I take care of them...I don't care what anyone thinks of a thirty-something having their parents in the same home. I love my parents, they don't! My parents took care of me, so what sort of person would I be if I did not return that love?

So anyway, I would be purchasing a home and land for not just myself and my autistic daughter (I am single, of course), but also my parents. In total I would get pretty much all the necessities of shelter and transportation for around $308,000. I am able to fully fix my own vehicles (you have to be able to when you have never owned a vehicle less than 15 years old), so I might spend another $5000-$12000 on tools and equipment (a lift and air tools, for instance) that would come in really handy for a backyard mechanic to become a garage mechanic in his own garage and do alot more on his own. Essentially, once I had these newer cars, I'd probably never have a major transportation crisis again. I'd have two backup vehicles, the tools I needed, and once I am done listing my plan, the money to purchase any parts I might need in the future. So, with the repair equipment let's bump that up to $320,000.

Next, I'd buy everyone an enormous wardrobe of used clothing (I don't believe in supporting slave labor, and most clothing is not fully made in America anymore anyway), since I only have 2 pairs of jeans and one button denim shirt that has no holes in it and my parents are about in the same boat. I put every spare penny towards my daughter, so she is pretty good on clothes, but since she is a teenager she still grows out of her clothing quickly. So, put another $20,000 away and we got clothing for life when shopping at the thrift store. Total is now $340,000 and we have clothing, shelter, and transportation for a very long time.

I'd spend around another $50,000 to convert the new home to solar and wind power, so I wouldn't have to worry about electricity (just repairs, which I could do most of myself, being a jack-of-all-trades). I would also install a woodstove for heat, which would be another $1000. The total is now $391,000 and I have clothing, shelter, transportation, power, and warmth (my land would provide the wood for my stove, besides, wood is cheap in the country). Take another $109,000 for a grave error in my calculations, or a forgotten item that would have to go with those things listed by necessity, to put the total upto $500,000.

I'd put away 1 million in the best, most tax protected way, for living expenses (groceries, repairs, etc.). I figure I could live quite well on $50,000 a year for 40 years. Another $500,000 would be invested very conservatively, so the total would jump up to $2 million. I would then put all of my effort into writing, since it is my passion, and I write now as a freelance.

I would then take $100,000 and purchase a home to use as a rental unit. I would use this rental unit to pay my taxes and insurance (as I said, earlier, I've never had that much money, so this idea may not provide enough money, so I would seek advice on how to go about setting myself up with an income that would pay all my taxes and insurance needs). We'll bump the figure up to $500,000 just in case and place the total at $2,500,000. I would then have to take at least $200,000 to repay charities who have helped me through the years (I couldn't have possibly taken more than that from them in all of my life, at least I hope not, I would feel like a real failure if that were the case as that would be more than 4 years income at $50,000).

Then I would take $300,000 and contract a private tutor for my autistic daughter for however many years I could get a good one contracted for with that kind of money. I would pull her out of public school (since they teach her nothing anyway) and have a full-time one-on-one tutor for her who would specialize in working with autistic children and hopefully, who would also be skilled in music. Music is my daughter's passion and I am certain she could excel in it if someone knowledgable in it, who had the time to get to know my daughter and her unique needs and way of learning, could work with her on a continuous basis. I think this would make her quite happy, and it would make me feel like I was able to do more for her than just love her and provide her with the basics. I would be able to provide her with the means to head in her own direction with her strongest characteristic armed in the best way possible. My total would now go up to $3 million.

I'd probably end up spending quite a bit on medical expenses since with that kind of money I don't believe anyone would be eligible for any sort of free medical insurance, so a whole million would probably end up getting washed away there, between my daughter and my parents (mostly my parents) before all was said and done, but I would have to see what sort of insurance I could get. I don't know, because I've never had insurance - I can't afford it. I need new glasses though, and so does everyone else. It would also be nice if I could see a dentist. So, now we have hit $4 million.

The final million I would have to think about. Maybe I'd consider opening a small business in town to help support the local economy, provide jobs, and aid in paying for taxes and stuff? Actually, I'd probably try to get into something which produces food so I could get much of my food from there and further cut my own expenses significantly.

I've always wanted a bunker, so I might waste $20,000 buying an old bus and burying it in the ground or something stupid like that, but I doubt it. Once I realized the cost I'd probably change my mind and decide to take my chances without the bunker. Besides, why should I purchase something like that to "possibly" protect myself later when I could spend that money helping someone who needs help now?

Lastly, I think once I had everything all taken care of I would probably roam around seeking sponsors for a long-distance hike to raise awareness and money for autistic children. I'd always wanted to do a long-distance hike and write a book about it, so I'd probably kill two birds with one stone and do that, but I'd have to pay someone to look after my parents while away - I'd make my daughter go with (it would do her good).

So there you go! This is my rough idea.

Hello OP

This is my second post here, and after careful consideration..... I would sugest that to make a large donation to the Christchurh Earthquake relief fund, would be a great idea, as I believe you are a New Zealander!

Surely something like that would not incure taxes etc.

Maybe a trust fund to help those effected by the earth changes that are taking place at this time!

Anyway, good luck OP, with whatever you decide, and may the Universe smile on you forever!

I think I would set up an ongoing fund for people in need, There are so many worthwhile charities out there..... Doctors without borders, is one I would love to support, as they assist many people who don't have access to quality medical services!

I could go on and on, but will leave it at that!

Cheers, and Bless you OP!beared

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
Easy question.

I'd take the money and buy a luxury log cabin house at the end of the transit line of some city next to a mountain with old growth trees and lots of hiking trails (British Columbia or elsewhere?).

I'd also like a separate building so I can house homeless people in need of shelter and I'd help them in any way I can. I'd also have an area where I can take in wounded animals and have the homeless people take care of the animals. So obviously I'd need alot of land.

I'd also use the money to go out to eat alot and eat lots of European cheeses/sausages and foods I enjoy. I'd buy lots of REI clothing etc. and a couple Apple labtops..

I'd trade the rest in the stock market..."it takes money to make money"...

hi OP, just saying, I'm sure me being toothless and doing 2-4 chicks at the same time probably isn't sad or noble as other peoples request especially the ones where people are telling their sad stories .....

but anyhow, I was scanning this thread like a lottery ticket that I lost and forgot to check ... and I saw someone mention that spreading the money around to more people may be a good idea and I agree with them.

5 mirrion dorras is a ridiculous amount of money, and if you are wanting to do the most good, and are serious, spreading the money around to many people would do way more good than giving it all to one person. 25 people getting 200k or 50 people getting 100k would still be life changing money for everyone.

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
5 Mil, wow!


I would start a music recording studio. For over 25 years i'm having new ideas for songs 24/7.
And give young talent the chance to record.
I have always been working but never could keep a job longer then 2 years. Then I need something else to do...music!
Take care of family and friends in anyway possible.
My son(9)loves to ride karts, i'll get him the right equipment.

Invite you and your family for dinner to say TY!!

peace

Actually I got done having a very long conversation with the person just a few hours ago. Well, more like 4 hours ago. They have to decide. Strangest phone call I ever made in fact.

For $1,000,000 I'll run butt naked across the golf course next time Obama is having a male bonding weekend with the republicans! Or GLP'ers can make a team of idiots and we can all do it at once and split the pot!

Why dont you invest the money locally in New Zealand I am sure there are countless NGO's that could use the money. If you are serious which I highly doubt you are, a couple of very very good friends of mine run a anti sex trafficking organization in Asia, which aims to try and make a dent in the horrific world of child sex slavery, they are the kind of people who devote all of there time to others quietly, your supposed money whould literally change entire generations of young girls and a region. I suggest you give it to them, if you would like to get in touch with them... let me know .. I would love to beleive you but unfortunatly I have come to find good people are few and far inbetween .. Arseholes on the other had wall to wall .. rock a look at me rock in any direction you'll hit one ... anyways good luck to you

Wow, sorry I missed this thread earlier.

I have a 'list', but primarily I would help a huge amount of folk, some I know personally, some I don't, that need a whole lot of help with Housing, Transportation, Clothing, Food and Medical Care.

And it would be amazing to be able to do that.
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

It sounds like you're actually doing it. Pretty damned amazing. I hope the feeling you have now lasts you a long time. You deserve it.

What do they have to decide - something about the one favor?
That just makes this even more intriguing. I can't imagine anyone having any difficulty making any decision.

Well, I hope you'll tell us what you decided and as much as you can to complete the story while keeping it all anonymous.

Good show, OP!

do what the Joker did...burn it!

well, maybe not lol

I don't believe the OP's story, but still to answer the question, after helping out close friends and family, probably also look for more ways to distribute it here in Korea, starting first with the all the orphans here. Lots of homeless here too, but not sure about that. Have a feeling they would just imbibe more soju, the cheap elixir of the Korean gods here...

2012 coming, so we have a little more time than the brewster's millions movie anyway, hopefully to help others in these shit times.

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
I would do with 5 million what i am doing already - obviously i would just get it achieved quicker!!

I plan to create an 'Eden' of sorts - in that i mean live off the land 100%. All fuel, food provided from the land for all aspects of life.
I don't mean just have some vegetables and a few cows to slaughter each year either. That's 'survival' nutrition.

I mean REAL nutrition - for optimum health and longevity. (Dying through disease really is un-necessary and a sorry way to end life.) That includes various kinds of orchards, biomes (tropical fruits food - superfoods), cellars (gourmet fungal foods), etc etc..to be built/created for everyone to eat the very best nature can offer (with a little help from us 10 fingered mortals!)

All fuel sources for electricity and other power applications would be created using an energy device that doesn't cause pollution at all...unlike current coal, gasoline generators etc. I'm not going to give that gem of an idea away online for all to steal though! ;-)

I have discovered so far tip-toing into this project - it ironically costs alot of money to rid oneself of the need for money - yet i also know that once one 'Eden' is set-up - using the products/experience and knowledge from that Eden will set up other ventures elsewhere, vastly reducing costs and time...(and costly mistakes!)

When the project is complete i would open the doors to teach all who genuinly wish to live and learn that way of life...i would not charge for that (which alot of pseudo 'eco villages' do) - i simply want to share this life-long vision with as many as are interested.

It need not be back-breaking work to live for free and off the land we were born on.
We've been taught to live that way we must sacrifice 'indulgences' of modern life - yet the truth is that THAT kind of life truly indulges us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Pure abundance of contentment and being Human!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1436509



To pay off debts and pay for 'things' is only a temporary resolve to the 'machine of existence' most are trapped in. If we lived another way so many would not find themselves trapped in this way and needing so much for family care, healthcare and debts.

I am early 30's and have always had optimism and determination to never give up. I've faced death and sorrows, joys and highs of life, like most folk have yet i know the most challenging times are the ones that really evolve us, shape us and help us grow.

I'm debtfree in a world drowning in debt....i don't know how i resisted but i chose a different way of life - not based on material need yet rather human need- and stuck to it through thick and thin. My wish is to share this with everyone - absolutely every walk of life...as those who have glimpsed my 'dream' thusfar have been in wonder and awe of just seeing how it CAN be possible.

With 5 million....wow...i could expand on my vision, achieve it much quicker...embrace the ideal (which is far more than what i've said here) and most of all actually create a movement that enables people to truly free themselves. Most people just need showing how.
Nature shows us the way and i am a wee gatekeeper to direct people to that abundent, healthy for all and inexpensive way of life! :-)

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
Honestly... I don't need it. I am blessed with acres of my own Diamonds... the WORLD is my play ground.

MY MIND.. My ATTITUDE and who I AM as I approach this world is greater than any lump sum of money that can be given to me.

1/2 would go to taxes.
1/4 would go to me and my family
and 1/4 would go to help the needy in the USA...

but I have already donated over $250,000.00 in Education Scholarships and my own HELP THE HOMELESS PROJECT.

I have already purchased pallets of sleeping bags... back packs and personally went to the DOLLAR STORE to fill them with personal hygine and care items.

So, today, I know better HOW TO GIVE.. and HOW TO HELP... and it is quite different than WHAT YOU who have not givein much... MIGHT THINK...

People need to take an ACTIVE ROLE in their recovery from the sickness of METAL POVERTY... MENTAL LAZINESS...YES .. POVERTY is a mental sickness and the MIND NEEDS TO CHANGE.

Without that, all the other things you do is just a BAND AID to temporary COVER UP and HIDE a WOUND of LIFE experieces that lay just beneith the surface of the band aid.

I have helped Homeless men and women... I have helped people that are already in Govt Sponsored programs.. with an ATTITUDE that you owe me.

Helping others REQUIRES much planning and thought.

There is a REASON and a MENTAL CONDTION for people who are in POVERTY... and the GAME of ASCENSION is to OVER COME... all the REASONS you say NO I CAN't and turn your life in to YES I CAN...

Without that as a starting point.. you are simply putting a BAND AID on any problem that you THROW money at.

Throwing money at a problem is NOT a solution... it is in fact INSANITY... to continue to put money into programs that DONOT HELP OTHER .... HELP SELF.

So that is my two cents.
