so i was watching the men who built america......
and i saw that rockefeller ended up with just over 1billion or $664.3 billion in todays money or something like that now my question is this what would you do with that much money? now the 664.3 billion is after taxes
this question is more of a hypothetical question than a realistic one. i realize this wouldnt be all cash this is just a what if it was all cash question and that its more than most people could spend in one lifetime.
me personally i would do the following:
1.)have several mansions: one would be built like a castle with battlements and a drawbridge and made to look real castle like. one would be dedicated to gaming with a top of the line computer and external hard drive with of hard drive storage for various stuff. the other would be my personal pleasure palace. all would have a jeeves type butler cause i like those kind of butlers.
2.)i would pay richard knaak to never write another book ever.
3.)i would buy/build a massive water park and staff it. they would be on call 24/7. obviously i would have 2 sets one for nighttime and one for daytime. not sure yet if it would indoor or outdoor yet. probably indoor.
4.)i buy a orange clk mercedes gtr cause i like its sleek body. i would also own several porsches. all orange cause orange is an awesome color.
5.)i would buy that gaming collection that was in a video game thread being sold on e-bay for 550 grand and have it delivered to my mansion in the states via private jet through my own private airstrip.
6.)would buy bioware from ea and have bioware make icewind dale 3 with 3.5 edition ruleset.
would buy rights to d&d from hasbro/wizards whoever owns it so they stop ruining d&d.
7.)i would put 20 billion in the bank and let the interest accrue for a year. the first year the interest would be divided amongst my family in a fund for after my death. after that i would donate the interest every year to some random deserving family.
8.)i would hire my own security force. all of them would have delta force level training.
9.)i would have a limo designed/built to look exactly like the one from vigilante 8:second offense along with a chauffer driver. would also have a cane made up that just like lord clyde's from that same game.
10.)would pay off my student loan and finish my degree and get my cpa.
11.)would have my old buick my grandpa gave me get a tune up.
12.)would donate some of that to angry video game nerd to do some more videos and some to tesnexus cause they make good mods 13.)along with some to my mod authors of choice.
14.)would pay someone to sort out the mess that is my oblivion mod files and get them working.
15.)would pay game guide companies to reprint the game guides for some of the older guides i never got the chance to purchase or get them off amazon.
16.)would buy/acquire every forgotten realms book (there are a LOT of them more than 70 at last count.)
17.)would start my own collection of every weapon known to history. this of course would be housed in my castle mansion.
18.)would buy every old pc game i have a yearning for and the equipment to run it. (lords of the realm 2, and other games that run off old dos/win 95/98 systems.)
19.)would change my name to bread.(whos going to stop me? money does talk and im pretty sure a judge would allow it.)
20.) would pay ion zur to finish composing his ice temple soundtrack from icewind dale 2. (the 30 second sound byte he did sounds so good but yet completely unfinished at the same time. i love choir music like that. would post link but the person who had it up closed his youtube account long ago so its no longer available.)
21.) buy out microsoft and get rid off the abomination that is windows 8. instead work on releasing windows 9.
22.) buy some new clothes.(nothing fancy just more of the same of what i have now. maybe a fancy suit or two but thats it. never been a fan of fancy rich people clothes.)
23.)a extensive home defense system including automated turrets, motion sensors,and a sort of barracks for my bodyguards.etc at each of my mansions.
sorry for the long list.(put some breaks in it to make it a bit easier on the eyes.) so what would you do with that much money?
