    I would share it with family and friends and people who need it more then me.
    To be honest, I have almost everything I want anyway and a huge amount of money wouldn't change that.

    I'd travel all over the world, to visit all the people that I've known forever and haven't met yet.

    And I'd own a house with a pool! Omg, I want a pool! LOL

    I'd set up that emergency fund I so desperately need to not panic. I'd set money aside so my kids could go to college. I'd pay off my motherinlaws house. I'd hide some so I'd feel safe, then I'd let my husband blow the rest.
    I don't need cash, I need friends. And if I can only get friends with money, then they aren't really friends.

    I'd keep enough to live a happy and comfortable life with my future family, and make sure I could give the same to as many people as possible. Too much money will only corrupt oneself, afterall.

    I would buy an island somewhere, and build up my own little society away from the world, where all the bullshit, all the pain and suffering, that being a part of the world the way things stand causes, would be gone, and there would just be peace, relaxation, and freedom. No stress, no worries, no judgement, no pain.

    I would self publish, live in my own house, live greener, go to ask the truth to the guy with white hair.

    i'd travel the world -- go visit all the people and places that i'd said i'd go to, invest some, donate some (read: lots) to charity (maybe create a charity?), go buy some investment properties, put the rest in the bank as a trust fund and live off the interest/rent from the houses. and maybe get a car. not one that guzzles lots of fuel tho.

    Fiddler on the Roof Cast - If I Were a Rich Man Lyrics



    [TEVYE]
    "Dear God, you made many, many poor people.
    I realize, of course, that it's no shame to be poor.
    But it's no great honor either!
    So, what would have been so terrible if I had a small fortune?"

    If I were a rich man,
    Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
    All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
    If I were a wealthy man.
    I wouldn't have to work hard.
    Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
    If I were a biddy biddy rich,
    Yidle-diddle-didle-didle man.

    I'd build a big tall house with rooms by the dozen,
    Right in the middle of the town.
    A fine tin roof with real wooden floors below.
    There would be one long staircase just going up,
    And one even longer coming down,
    And one more leading nowhere, just for show.

    I'd fill my yard with chicks and turkeys and geese and ducks
    For the town to see and hear.
    (Insert)Squawking just as noisily as they can. (End Insert)
    With each loud "cheep" "swaqwk" "honk" "quack"
    Would land like a trumpet on the ear,
    As if to say "Here lives a wealthy man."

    If I were a rich man,
    Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
    All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
    If I were a wealthy man.
    I wouldn't have to work hard.
    Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
    If I were a biddy biddy rich,
    Yidle-diddle-didle-didle man.

    I see my wife, my Golde, looking like a rich man's wife
    With a proper double-chin.
    Supervising meals to her heart's delight.
    I see her putting on airs and strutting like a peacock.
    Oy, what a happy mood she's in.
    Screaming at the servants, day and night.

    The most important men in town would come to fawn on me!
    They would ask me to advise them,
    Like a Solomon the Wise.
    "If you please, Reb Tevye..."
    "Pardon me, Reb Tevye..."
    Posing problems that would cross a rabbi's eyes!

    And it won't make one bit of difference if i answer right or wrong.
    When you're rich, they think you really know!

    If I were rich, I'd have the time that I lack
    To sit in the synagogue and pray.
    And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall.
    And I'd discuss the holy books with the learned men, several hours every day.
    That would be the sweetest thing of all.

    If I were a rich man,
    Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
    All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
    If I were a wealthy man.
    I wouldn't have to work hard.
    Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.

    Lord who mad the lion and the lamb,
    You decreed I should be what I am.
    Would it spoil some vast eternal plan?
    If I were a wealthy man.

    I'd change my name, retire, move to colorado and just live in solitude/be a ski bum until I die.

    D: Why?

    My sister bought the most powerful macbook pro they make and it's a total POS.

    Over $4000 and my PC from two years ago kicks it's ass.
