I would do a lot of stuff with it!

buy some special equipment for hospitals,
put some money in to research.
buy some land,
Pay of some peoples debts.
start up a homeless project to get those who want to be helped back in to work,

ect... the money to me would be a way of changing a few peoples life,

I asked a friend ...he told me :

"Ill buy one candy"

And I said "just a candy?''

Then he said " a candy made of diamonds emeralds, gold and platinum"

this isnt about helping people, this is like the million dollar question- its about own personal desires, to no one elses benefit.

i would open up my shop, never handle money again, start my zine (finally!) and circulate it nationwide.

convert it to USA dollars then begin mass genocide
oh wait I mean I would uhh help the needy... yeah.

Actually I just gave it some thought, I would just pretend I am extremely retarded and flop around, pour my dinner on my head, speak in odd voices, sometimes go naked, and just be general thing people would try their best to avoid, but they can't because I'm flying around the world with my kevlar armor suit speaking through my megaphone telling them I'll fight any self proclaimed messiahs and if they don't like it they can kick rocks.

and everyone in the world would recieve a letter from me simply stating : I'm rich biatch.

Can somebody fill me in on how much 1 bn is??

Depends on how it comes to me.

If I won it in the lottery or inherited it, obviously I'd be convinced I was uniquely deserving and donate as much as possible to the Republican party to ensure none of it ever goes to help anyone that doesn't directly serve my own selfish interests. Then I'd lock the rest up in federally insured banks, bonds and CD's with some toward highly conservative "investments" in the subsidized infrastructure of the government, like Utilities and Financial Corporations. Any so called "charitable" giving would be restricted to buying political influence to enforce my morality on others as Jesus enters your heart as a by product of the dumb luck associated with falling backasswards into money.

However, if I earned it (like Ted Turner) hopefully I'd have an appreciation for exactly how much money that is as well as the thousands if not millions of people who's stuggles helped me get there including the very Capitalist society that allows such achievement and use my wealth to create real opportunities for others with jobs, investments and truly generous giving like his billion dollar donation to UN relief efforts. In which case, the Republican Party would no longer want anything to do with me as I'd be considered a scandalous anti-American traitor.

Oxymoroned yaself then mate... Open up your shop and never handle money again

I reckon i'd buy a nice house, pay off parents/grandparents morgages, go on holiday and perhaps a spare million or 2 shared out to a charity.. obviously
