Buy out comcast spectacor and own

the philadelphia flyers
the philadlephia sixers
the wachovia center
the spectrumm

then i'd sell the flyers and the spectrum and kick them out of the wachovia center (cause it's hockey, so who cares) and i'd run the sixers like marc cuban runs the mavericks and finally get a title.

(Yeah, i've actually had this thought before)

I'd take 100 million and use it to ensure that nobody in my bloodline would ever have to work again.
I'd take another 100 million and use it to ensure the same for my existing family and friends.
I'd take 50 million and just spend it like there's no tomorrow on everything from travel to big screen TVs to sports cars, etc.

Then I'd take the remaining 750 million and give it away to people and other animals who need it.

I'd take 1 million and use it to establish my ideas.

I'd give away 999 million to the helpless people/wild life savers.

If I had 1 billion in my bank wow... big different than saying if you won the lotto and won a billion hehe damn tax's!

What's funny is a lot of people think with a billion or a million they'd go out and buy a nice house nice car etc... Me personally i alrady have the vehicle I want! So here's what I'd do if I had 1 billion in my bank account (Which by the way would be earning me 53million a year if it was in my current rate (CD) or about 20 million a year just in my bank!!)

So, anyway.
  • Create numerous corporations and spread the money around so that I could not be sued and loose lots and lots and lots. This would take some $ since I would be essentialy starting and then "investing" in each one. (Let's say cost is about 1 million)
  • Pay off all debt of everyone in my immediate family and very close friends I have known for MANY years. (Im just gonna through a number out for this one, 1 million)
  • Buy about 10-25 million dollar+ homes in CA (probably half in south half in north so Ic an have 2 management companies). Assign each group to a coproration. By doing this and investing my 25 million I've just insured that EVERYONE in my family will not have to work unless they want to (which they all would) the rest of their life, and anyone after them etc. 25 houses, 25 million, generating AROUND 85k a month.
  • Buy numerous quality websites that earn good money and don't require a LOT of maintence.. User driven sites, sites with 'moderators' or volunateers are good choices. I would probably buy about 100 sites and of course my cost would be anywhere from 500k to 5 million (guessing) for those sites total.
  • Hire a full time team of programmers and designers to continue developing my website ideas. 250k a year
  • Buy a large domain register... budget would be about 50 million.
  • Buy storage units in multiple states... economy bad storage units up, economy good storage units up.. Can't go wrong! I'd probably spend 25 million on getting a GOOD # of these up and running
  • Take 50 million and start/invest in my own hedge fund. (Not sure if you can be the only one in but maybe spread it to a couple hedge funds!)
  • I think now would be a good time to get some land and build my own house, and get some toys for myself. Toys, and house cost probably 5 million just because land here would be over 1
  • Donate 1 million per-year.
  • Realize I have almost spent 200 million and realize that I'm earning millions a month with my new website icnoming growing very fast! LOL
800 million left... wow a billion is a lot of money. I'd probably invest in condos, apartments, buy some franchises, etc.

Maybe play with some money with buying/selling realestate... private islands were on my list but with global warming and the sea raising in about 80 years the value is gonna go down I predict. Maybe I'd try my hand at buying property or land and selling for profit in a year or X years.

Overall, I'm interested in INVESTMENTS for long term of my life. Something in maybe 100 years my kids kids kids or something LOL will now be worth 10 billion, etc.

It's crazy to think that I did all the above with around 200 million and I would have 800 more to go.. holy moly! Talk about creating anything you want. I would reallay really concentrate on my own ideas as far as websites go!

By that wouldnt YOU be spreading hate around too?
Why not use the money to do something more productive, like help the homeless, or sick, orphans and people effectd by war and hate. A billion might not be enough but its a GOOD start
