I only said what I would do. I won't be responsible for where the board took it from there, as predictable as it may have been.

I would destroy the Federal Reserve!

I would start an excellent music venue in my hometown.

I would buy pro-legalization ads at every commercial break during primetime for an entire year.

srsly, thread did decay straight into the mac vs. pc gutter :)

ANyway...

Zeroth thing, pay a buttload of taxes I guess.

First thing, set up an investment/savings account so's I can live off the interest.

Second thing, fix the house up so it is completely wired up with gadgets, including nice studio, yet off grid and as sustainable as possible.

Third thing, do something good for some tax-deductible charity.

Fourth thing, I buy Angstrom a new cyberhat for making me a billionaire.

Fifth, I might buy Ableton, it would be awesome. I would hire some of you guys to argue on a video webcast about what features to add.

i would keep whatever me and my family needed in order to live comfortably and the wrest i would give away to people who need it.
im not talking about feeding the homeless (that is already taken care of here in the us).

public transportation is crap. everyone in America needs a vehicle.

i would also use my money to try to get rid of a lot of the laws that i feel are holding people back from being happy and holding them back from progressing.

i would do this while making music of course i wouldn't do it like how bono or other celebs do it..
no one would know that i spent a dime. and i wouldn't be trying to save the world. that's nearly impossible.

If dum had a billion dollars he'd bankroll James Cameron budgeted documentaries on the unsung victims of world atrocities because even he knows if he gave money directly to the victims that he's championing they'd fuck it all up and then he'd be the same evil douche bag he throws fits about.

she's a bland bitch. she fits the profile Angstrom described.

if you don't know who she is, rejoice.
