Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
I'd take $1M and buy as many cheap acres of land as possible in a country outside of the U.S.- Cost $1M.

I would invite true believers of the SHTF to move with us and enact a real noahs ark situation using semi-underground housing, new technology, and sustainable living. COST: $2M

With $1 Million we'd invest in creating our own technological advances and making them available in the underground market, specifically, water-car transformer technology. Our location would permit mining for precious metals to assure we have a positive ROI. Therefore, those who joined our community would have a few different positions, scientist, miner, and farmer. Also, other positions etc. COST: $1M

I would take 100K and invest in my musical comic book- this would help spread the word and also help us gain more positive cash flow to enact a second "ark" is feasible.

Finally, I would dedicate my library to gaining materials that will help decipher the Torah, Tanakh, and Bible completely- cross referencing every word in Hebrew and Greek with previous Egyptian and Akkadian references to get a much more accurate translation for the future of mankind. Regardless of the $5M this is still one of my goals.

Any left over Cash would assure completion of plans.

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
I would buy a nice house out in the highlands of scotland, with a few extra rooms / houses attached to the estate where people could come and live and i could use my hypnotherapy (im qualified) to assist them to find the path to heal themselves.

There is so much research i want to undertake, so many ideas for the human mind and the esoteric, ive got 2 books im currently writing and at least the framework for a few more in my mind.(doesnt everyone say that? lol).

I would also like to include a fully equiped gym as i would like to be able to offer physical training aswell as i currently train as a amature body builder and would love to offer people the nutritional and training advice coupled with the hypnotherapy to give people the complete package.

However the job i currently have pays the bills but that is all, i want to be able to enrich peoples lives by reaching them with books and having a sanctury for them to come to and live for a while and experiance peace and quiet with learning and free flowing ideas.

Crazy to some maybe, but its my dream.peace

So lets just "Say" I have an extra $5Mil to give away,
And lets just "Say" I was thinking about giving it to someone. Not some BS Charity but to someone that could REALLY REALLY USE IT.
And lets just "Say" that you would end up getting it in the next 24 hours.

Build a settlement where we can begin to collect like-minded and self-sufficient people together. Those who are highly skilled in crafts. Those who are willing to leave behind the trappings of empire-building or excessive luxury and are loving and giving. Setting an example for the rest of the world, in peace.

The settlement will be circular. The circle will be divided into 'slices', a few degrees of the circle each. The centre will be circular, and where all thoughts, help, produce sharing and community activities take place. The perimeter girth, where we grow our own crops and the individual slices being where we place our homes. It will be self limiting in number as a predetermined number of degrees in the circle will be available - say, 5 degrees each.

Half of it would buy gold/silver. Not as an investment, but as insurance in case paper becomes worthless.

Half into the bank and live off of the interest.

I'd never actually spend any of it.

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
I would spend $800 to get a transmission for one of my vehicles that has been sitting at the shop since January because I just don't have the funds to get it fixed. My other vehicle is 20 years old and will not pass inspection. My 2 daughters have been driving it to and from community college without getting a ticket for over a year now...fingers crossed that their luck continues.

I would also hire a lawyer to help me in local court. My friend and neighbor passed away recently at my home under hospice care, and left me his property, and 6 Chihuahuas. His son who has been estranged for 30 years came out of the woodwork and is challenging the will. Because I cannot afford a lawyer, my neighbors caretaker, who lived with him, has been evicted from the home with the 6 dogs while this is pending. He had nowhere to go and is now living in an office shed in my yard with the dogs.

I would also pay off the home that I live in. The property was purchased 5 years ago by my now ex-fiance. I moved here with my daughters and he was supposed to follow within a year from a neighboring state where we resided together for 5 years before this purchase. Instead he decided to take up with another man's wife, never thinking he would be caught. For the past year the mortgage has been consistently paid late and he is threatening to just stop paying altogether, knowing I cannot make the payment by myself. I have gone from believing I was the luckiest woman in the world to being on the verge of homelessness. It has been difficult to say the least.

I am now in the process of trying to open a thrift store to make some extra income to try to save the house. I have been lucky enough to find a storefront just down the road with affordable rent. But the building is basically a glorified barn with no running water, but I can work around that for a while I hope. Some extra funds to get the store going would be a Godsend.

A long time ago I found myself in another difficult situation and spent 2 months at a homeless shelter that focuses on life skills training for its residents. I would give a good chunk to them, and start similar shelters in this area with a focus on the children of the homeless families, to ease their pain and confusion during a time of such uncertainty.

5 million is more than what any one person could ever need. Perhaps you should split it with several deserving people...the money could help more people and touch more lives.

I wish you wisdom and guidance in making your choice.

open an orphinage in India (Madras) and give the kids a hot bowl of rice and a glass of freash milk everyday.

Also give them clothes cuz most under the age of 12 run around butt naked or only wear a t-shirt which does not hide much.

I would head deep into South America, buy some huge acrerage. Pay off the local government to basically become my own self governed mini country. Then I would invite fellow libertarian minded individuals to join me in our own land and all to live-Free of taxes, inane laws, and the Man. OP you could hang out there too, and I wouldn't give a damn what you do, as long as it didn't infringe on anyone else.

we need a new storage facility for our old fire trucks at our fire station..probally invest a good portion of it to the fire station, because we have many crew with out dated gear, we also operate at under 800,000 a year which is very low but we work just as hard as any 1.5m or higher station!

I would take what ever money is left over and get me and my immediate family in a comfortable situation ( Investing to create longivity of the funds) and probally be alot of adventure gear!

I would buy a lot of acreage, start a self sufficient small town like commune. I would only let in people who can contribute to the over all community. No slackers, no freeloaders. It would be totally self sufficient with wind generators. Those that come and live would own their own place with a contract. They would have to put in money to have this right. Those that just come to live and work, would be like shareholders.

Peace would rule in this town. Criminal checks would be done.

My bf and I have talked about what we'd do for years if we were loaded! Don't need the full 5 mill. Maybe just 1 mill. Pay off our debt and buy our home. Give some to family. Provide a good life for my little boy. Just be happy not having to work 3 jobs when my boys only 8 weeks old! I'd keep on my wee weekend job as I like it.

If I had to take the whole 5 mill. I'd look into getting a pancreas transplant cos mine is knackered! And I'd learn to drive and get a passport and see the world! Never been on holiday before. I'm 27!

Would I ruin it by saying I'd also buy some good quality weed! hf
