Decided this person was a waste of time responding.

I'm noticing a disturbing lack of posters who would try to set up secret societies and rule the world from the shadows. Hmmm...

Cut back on who and what you eat! Push away from the cutting board
and dinner table!

Actually quite touching to see the amount of people who would use the money for good causes.

Faith in humanity restored

Thought of another one... I'd kick $100 Million dollars to Bethesda under the condition they use the money to put out an Elder Scrolls collection remastered in glorious 4K HD. I'm talking Arena through Oblivion.

I'd also have my dream fishing/hunting yacht made. Basically a double wide trailer welded to the top deck of an ice breaker.


This ^^^

Skyrim 2 please for me

First I'd make sure that it's actually there...

Then I'd move it, and me, to a non-extradition country, because there's no way in Hell I came by it legally...

I'm thinkin' Monaco, or somewhere similar. Buy myself a President? A congress?

Why be secret? Be really obvious about it. Buy a President and a Congress, outright. Rule from my 499 bedroom estate in a non-extradition country, and be totally guarded by South African/British mercenaries who will sound suspiciously like Roger Moore, and Richard Burton.

Probably ask me to only have three cocktails before dinner next.

Three cocktails before dinner is too much already.

I guess I'd keep the majority of my wealth/power secret because I suspect that my revolutionary policies would get me attacked by mercs, special ops, or intelligence agencies. One of my end goals is to help create a pan-African superpower, but I first want to create a fully automated socialist utopian city-state. But there are a bunch of problems with that idea.

1) Money can buy a lot of things, but $50 billion is nowhere near enough to oppose the global central banking cartels. And there's no way they'd let my ideology nullify the power of their central banks without a fight.

2. Depending on where I created my fully automated socialist utopian city-state, it would mean the loss of plenty of lucrative contracts for the multinationals that are currently exploiting that place. Africa is amazingly rich when it comes to raw resources. But the major bottleneck is the lack of processing for those resources. For example, raw uncut diamonds from Zimbabwe can be had for super cheap. But the actual grading & cutting of the diamonds usually happens elsewhere (with the vast majority of profits going elsewhere, too).

Well, my complete automation policies would eliminate these kinds of bottlenecks & ensure that the only ones who profited from my territory's resources would be my city-state & its citizens. Now imagine being in a board meeting when it's announced that my host country is cutting off all sales of raw materials to all multinationals like your workplace... Yikes. It would be like Bangladesh deciding to immediately ban the global apparel companies; meaning that I'd expect "regime change" to topple me & restore the previous agreements.

I'm pretty sure that's a reference to South Park where Jared from Subway (prescient) was saying he wanted to give everyone aides (like assistants) so they could be as productive as him, but people thought it was AIDS and were pissed.



Or maybe that poster is a weirdo. I don't know.

He did leave off a letter and wrote aids not aides.I was thinking he was posting
while under the influence of something.Which is why I deleted my first response
to him.I have never watched South Park and don't know anything about the show.
Have a nice day.

If $50 billion suddenly showed up in my bank account, I'd expect the feds to suddenly show up at my door.

Chances are pretty good that it is a glitch and the mistake would be fixed by the next time I check my account. My initial response would be, however, to head inside the bank to make sure that the money I actually DID HAVE in the account is not lost once the mistake is taken care of.

Now, if the reason that $50 billion suddenly showed up in my savings account were legit, and, say, my name was picked at random by a secret society of anonymous and filthy rich philanthropists, then my first order of business would be to go into hiding. Then I'd spend some time traveling and seeking out the perfect plot of land to build my new off-grid and totally self-sufficient compound on.

Chances are that no one would ever see me again.

I would prepare a list as well.

Payoff all family debt, even the ones I hate.

Payoff all core group of friends debt.

Buy my boss a new truck. Get one for me, keep working when I feel like it until I can build my own business. Small scale and local but designed to grow aggressively.

Go to school. Stay in school for the rest of my life.

Build a house in northern Spain on a mountain I own.

Build a house in the Bronx on an entire block I own. One house for me surrounded by rent free homes I would let families live in if evicted and at risk of going homeless.

I would build store fronts they all can use to sell wares and services so as to generate their own income. I would then make micro loans available to them for small business startups.

The whole point is for them to get up and on their feet so they can reproduce the same help and social net to someone else. Buy a home, finish school, pay medical bills, get a good job, things like that.

Once those goals are complete and a saved family emerges back on top, the space and opportunity is opened for another set of candidates that need the help.

Maybe if it works, repeat the system world wide.

I would give my family and me 1 million a year to live on.

The rest not in use for a specific purpose would go to a greater good. Either it makes more money or its being used to help humans.

I am a mama and a grandmama so I am used to censoring stuff to protect
young minds from trash.
