i still don't think people really reconize the amount of money a BILLION dollars is. first thing you would have to do is hire a full staff of lawyers to sort out all the lawsuits(people these days will sue anyone for no reason at all, hoping to settle out of court. Hire real estate agency to find the property you want with about 100 acres around it with a gate(anybody and everybody was your friend at this point) Hire someone to open your mail, so you are not faced with ever sob story in the world(some are true, but it is mostly people trying to get that free dollar)Then i would buy a jet with a golden globe on it. tell my family and friends to spin it and see where it takes us(everyone gets a spin or two before we come back)Then i would hand them all a million dollars, so i knew they were taken care of. then take the other 900 million dollars and split it into $250,000, Put it in seperate banks(so it is insured), and live off the interest. even at 1 percent, that is 9 million a year.

I would be the same person. I would send evreryone in my family to college. I would give my parents a home and money. I would invest some. I would pay off all my bills. I would send my kids to private school and start their college fund. I would keep my job. I would save some! I might donate to a few charities here and their. I also would not tell anyone.

Wow. Hmm Lemme see.. First I will pay the debts that we owe to people and whoever we owe money to. Then I will buy a good house for us to live in. Then, I will set aside money for my tuition fee and my sisters as well. Then, I'll buy the things I long to buy. Then, donate some to the charity. Basically that is what I will do. IF there is more money left, then I would save it up for other uses. ^_^

That's a way too big amount of money, If I receive that amount, I would probably jump and shout for joy! Too much joy and confidence that I can see myself going outside our house to confront my most hated neighbor, punch him in the face as hard as I can, and pay him with a bundle of cash. Seriously!I got a lot of things to do with that amount of money. First thing I'll do is to immediately find and buy an new lot for my dream home. I'll buy the most state-of-the-art appliances and home necessities. Next, I will build a home network of high-end computers with my touch screen, ultra fast and dual wide screen computer complete with biometric controls as the server. Then I'll invest a huge computer cafe business. I'll also build my own personal fight gym, filled with state-of-the-art equipments, where I can have a personal Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing, Greco-Roman Wrestling, Judo, Karate and Taekwondo lessons from the best instructors and practitioners available. I'll also tour the different tourist spots starting with my country, my continent, and the whole world. Haha! I just can't stop thinking of different things I can do if I have at least 1 billion dollars that if I type them all here in myLot, It'll take me whole day to do it.^__^

I would pay off all my debt, all of my families' debts and then donate 95% of it to charity. Then, I would go on an amazing vacation for an entire year.

I think that my fiance and I would be very happy indeed. We would first put it towards our wedding, and then after that we'd have to discuss where it would go. I think we'd give some to his parents and some to my mom, and then save the rest for our future.
