If I had a billion gazillion dollars....

Postby Shakleton » Thu May 01, 2008 7:25 pm UTC

....I'd be rich.

But what to buy with it? What I'm up to is:

What would you buy if you had quasi-unlimited budget? I aim at items you buy for fun. I don't want answers like: "I'd pay the debts of my best friends parents" or "I'd give one gazillion dollars to charity". That's surely honorable and I'd do the same but what I want in this thread is items or other stuff that you buy just for your very own amusement.

Here I go:

Just discovered today (and gave me the idea): ThinkGeek.com has an AWESOME online shop. I think if I could I'd buy the complete stock. They have so many cool things like

Anti-gravity Globes
A watch that is also a 4 GB USB-Stick
Watches with 8 GB Space and monitor
New and shiny BLUE Laserpointers
Swiss army knifes with Laserpointer and USB-Drive

Just as a first idea. This is not meant to be an ad, it's just the stuff that gave me the idea for this thread. I also always wanted my private Helicopter. :-) (Of course I'd need flying lessons.)
Image
I'd also need a fnacy car. How about a Lamborghini?

You could do loads of awesome stuff. What would you do?

Liechtenstein. I want it. I would buy it. (I don't think I could afford Monte Carlo.)
I would also have people refer to me as "The God-Damned King of Liechtenstein!"
Once I was established as my own government, I think most everything else'd work itself out.

You know, I might start that as a new hobby....

Not on-topic in religious wars. And actually somewhat of a repeat topic. Unfortunately, I decided to move the topic into a forum I have no mod control in, so I can't merge them now.

I would buy a CNC plant, get 100 employees, payed at £150/hour, a shitload of massive CNC kit, loads of metal, and make a mech. One with flying ability. And lots of missiles. And a gigawatt laser system.

Oh, and a human sized hamster ball and an olympic-sized swimming pool (as a ball pit). That I'd live in. When I'm not crushing stuff with my mech.

You wouldnt need to choose. Just order everything in every gosh darn catalog.

Personally, I am not sure there is much I desire money wise. Once I have a top end computer, a private movie theatre TV wall, and a fast internet connection, I would be set. I guess I would do a bit of traveling as well.

I'd buy a plot near UCLA, knock down whatever was there, and build a modest but brilliantly designed 3-bed house with a hot tub. It would have 2 master bedrooms- for me and for a flatmate or an S.O. (I would never share a room with an S.O.; I like my personal space.) The third room would have an awesome piano, plus a futon and spare MacBook for guests. The living room would be super spacious with low, boho chic furniture. Then I would fill my days with expert tutors in disciplines from geopolitics to yoga to Arabic to surfing. I'd host a book club of middle-aged left-wing divorcées. We'd drink wine in the shade on my roof patio.

Possibly sig worthy....

And I think I would just get the ultimate gaming set up. Massive screens with really nice lounge area to just get loads of friends round and have huge multiplayer games.
Would also get myself a car. Not necessarily a good one... To start with.
I would strip it down and get a Lambourgini engine in there or something....

I'd buy a Kawasaki Ninja, even though it is a couple years before I am legally allowed to ride it. I would just look at it....
Definitely buy a nice 125 for when I am 17. Then a 250, then a 600, then I would be prepared to ride my Ninja.

Yes I do kind of have a vehicle fetish... Only for nice bikes though...

I would also pay to take all my friends on holiday to my house in France. We would spend a good week partying our ass' off with cheap French booze (yes I know I would be über rich, but one can still enjoy a 80pence bottle of cider once in a while)

And many more things that I might add at a later date...

Edit:
I would pay for my education, and my sisters.
I would also pay off her debt to my parents and give her about £8000 to cover her trip to the Arctic.

I would buy an old frigate or destroyer and convert it into my private yacht, complete with helicopter and ex-soviet 'anti-piracy' weaponry.

I'd also start a collection of rare, classic, and/or otherwise exotic vehicles.

I'm going to assume my funds are unlimited here. I would
- Finish my parent's remodel for them.
- Buy everyone in my family a new car.
- Pay for the rest of my education, and my sister's entire education.
- Set my friends and family up with any big-ticket items or expenses that they needed or wanted help with (school, rent, whatever).
- My mom would be getting a new Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, some delicious lenses and a panoramic tripod head. I would be getting a digital Hassleblad.
- I would buy a plot of land in Carmel or Monterey, California, and have an architect start designing me a beautiful house that makes the most of all possible natural light. It would have lots of skylights, lots of nooks for putting houseplants, a studio, and a garden. Also a big kitchen.
- Move to an one-room apartment for the rest of my education that is NOT in the basement and has lots of light and allows me to get a kitten.
- Travel. A lot.
- Hire a personal trainer.

I'd HIRE a ninja to ride. NOT THAT WAY. He'd be my main means of transportation. Since he's a ninja it would just look like I'm floating in mid air

You laugh, but I had a friend who never washed her underpants- she just threw them out and bought new ones. I mean, it never occured to her to do otherwise, because she left her family before learning about these things, and came to the UK with refugee status. We were like, "dude, wash your underpants."

I think that I would purchase British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan (we need bread from somewhere folks!), and Manitoba from the Canadian government. I would then create the Amalgamated Denizens of Canadia. Everyone would be supplied with a free 60" TV and every major console system, along with an amazing PC. Next, I'd create an entire LAN over the newly created country. Let the LAN games begin. Failing the purchase of these provinces, I would attempt to purchase a small area of land somewhere, or Sealand! The videogames/computers/LAN would still be a go.

Otherwise, I've always wanted to see what the moon is like....

I'd get audio stuff. I'd buy a different pair of speakers for every room in the house, and then I'd build a bigger house, and populate every room in that house with more speakers.

O'Heocha D2 Saturns in custom black chrome
Shahinian Diapason
Quad ESL-2905
Apogee Acoustics Synergy
Nearfield Acoustics Pipedreams -- I like this one, because the first time I saw an image of it:

I thought it was a photoshop to make it look like it was just a bunch of drivers going on into infinity, but then I saw one (and heard one) in real life, and they really do look like that.

...and correspondingly good sources and amplification.

Oh, and then I'd go rescue a bunch of cats and give them an entire wing to themselves. I'd have to have in-wall speakers there, probably Dynaudio IP-24.

Ooooh, man i would totally want to take piloting lessons and have my own plane or helicopter. That way I could GO places. Like "oh hey i'm going to grab some pizza.... in Chicago. wanna come?"

Outside of that I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to travel. There is so much to see and do...and I dont want to just hit thebig cities and touristy places. Those would be fun for a warm up but then I'd want to go backpacking across the french countryside, or hiking through the amazon, or on a month(s) long trek through Egyptian ruins. I dont just want to travel, i want adventures!! Part of me doesnt want to be one of those people that can buy their way into places you normally couldnt go unless you had some business there, but to sit in at some new (or very very very old, rather) archaeological site and to BE THERE as something monumental was discovered... it would be amazing.

This may seem like the "give a billion dollars to charity" but I want this for ME... I'd like to set up some kind of reptile zoo/preservation/research thingummy because i really really love reptiles. Also, after listening to an NPR interview with an author that spent some time in a zoo in a struggling country (i cannot for the life of me remember where it was now, and its killing me) I'd really really REALLY like to set up a huge charity for places like that. I'm not much of a philanthropist and there are already a ton of aids for humans, and quite a few for animals, but places like this get overlooked far too often. Of course this would totally give me the rights to come visit whenever i felt like it. "oh you have abaaaaby panda due any day now? be right there!" *hops in jet to go watch*

Fly to the ISS for a week. It's only what, 10 million $? Definitely first thing I'd do.

Then I'd design my own super-cool house complete with ball pits, see-through bridges that connect different rooms, a huuuuge kitchen etc. It will have an incredible lab filled with old equipment - old oscilloscopes, oscillators, antennas etc. that I could play around with. I'd probably buy a plane so I could fly around with friends around the world and see stuff. I'll also buy houses for my friends so we could live close to one another. And I'll have to find a way for them to accept without feeling bad about it. Maybe hypnotism?

Why, WHY Chicago? of all the places, why would to go to Chicago for pizza, surely if you were able to take the leer jet you'd go to Rome or Naples because I don't like Roman pizza, too flat and ... sad looking for my tastes, give me full bodied [adjecvtival form of Naples] pizza anyday.

Oh me yarm, I would like hire the best chefs in the world, mebe even some like Chinese and Japanese chefs cos I happen to like yum cha and certain Japanese dishes, though in my heart, I do so love Euro food the best...OH and an Indian chef too, so hard to get a good Vindaloo...and Turkish....mmmmm Turkish. I would have like this massive kitchen and I'd get like farms so I know I'd have fresh, well treated food. Not chickens stuck in cages the size of an A4 sheet all their lives.
And I'd fund some SERIOUS conservation projects. And I would destroy every single Japanese whaler in existance. Then I'd use my money to

Oh and I'd give some serious money to orphans because you have no idea how shit some of them have it. Not in a generic charity way (that's what the RSPCA is for) but in a maybe, I can do something for them way...could work with my infertility drug. Couples need children, children need families, it works.

Eventually I shall buy a French Chateau near the Pyrenees and live as
a heidonistic play-boy bachelor surrounded by books and forests and mountains in luxury.

because i was thinking more of a short flight from someplace in america to some place in america. plus i like horrible greasy american pizza. While i'm traveling the world, i'm sure i'll have plenty of time to eat italian pizza in italy.

Also, i like the chefs idea. but instead of hiring them to cook for me, I'd hire them to teach me because i LOVE cooking and it would be so awesome to be able to create amazing meals for company, for special occasions, or just because its dinner time.

I would also build a private library. a very custom private library. yessssssss....
