OK, You are a billionaire ... so what now?

Post by Angstrom » Wed Feb 17, 2010 4:29 pm

OK, pop philosophy time.

Imagine you have all the money you could ever need, what would you do?
First you sort out all your relatives with cars and houses, etc. Fine.
Now you can settle down and do/ purchase whatever you want to.

So what would you do?
yachts, huge houses, zimmeresque modular systems?
what's it to be?

I'd turn it all into singles and throw it all off the top of the Empire State building just to see how stupid all the people would act. :twisted:

Start planning the world tour - by boat.
Grab a couple of good friends and take the world tour. 1st stop Aussie territory.
Be merry and live free for a time.
Be generous, but not overly so - some charities are just as corrupt as governments but helping folks as you go is priceless.
Write a few more songs.
Get a live drummer.
Record/re-record in my dope, fresh, sick, phat, ill, (whateva), new studio in my new house with my 3 hottie maids who wear the classic French attire.
Smoke a joint and then another.

I'd buy out Ableton, nuke the forum, and be disliked (or admired) the world over.

Actually I'd buy a lot of land up in the mountains, build a kicks ass house, complete with my own ski run and mountain bike park. Huge studio out back. yes please.

Sometimes it's good to state outright what you would do.
It's an interesting way of setting targets for yourself, IE: don't aim for the career to get the money to then use in achieving the end goal - instead work directly on the goal.

just a thought.

Humanitarian philanthropy...

Try to figure out ways to use the money to help along the electric car movement in the US.

Hmmmmmm, so I should just take the $48 I have in my wallet now, the $126 I have in the bank and just throw it off now! Only thing is, throwing a couple billion off would have more of a dramatic effect then throwing a measly $174 off. Hmmmm, I must contemplate this more.

Open up the biggest baddest night club the world has ever seen. Buy off every body necessary to allow smoking and full nudity.

Then, never leave. 8)

Get a decent home. Fairly fancy car. Give my father money to invest (the only person I could truely trust with my cash) and use some money to hire my allstar dj cast for a mega huge party in orlando... then do it the next day in miami. (I would headline such a party.)
Because Whatever.
