Default What would you do if you were a billionare!

If I was a billionare and I had a billion dollors (American dollors that is, which is I think the form of money that is worth the most in the world), is build myself my very own corpret empire dealing in Hotels just like Donald Trump but better. I would build my own golf coarse and Theme Park. I would create the next Desney World with my own set of characters and places and apply that theme to my Theme Park. I would own 8 mansions 4 on each coast of the United States. I would build my own film company in which would create the next great films of the 21st centary. Basically I would be a major motion picture producer/ artist/ hotel and theme Park owner.



And lastly but most importantly I would give some to charity afterall don't want to be greedy. I would create thousands of jobs for everybody and everybody in my opinion would be very important in my policy. No body would be left out or fired because my policy would be a learning process in itself. And if one man goes down you learn from that mistake and do better. Now that doesn't mean I won't fire but for minor things it won't happen. I would be fair to everyone in wages and I would let everyones idea all the way down to the janitors be noticed. Thats my Billionare life. I have more ideas but I want to see what your ideas of being a billionare would be like for you.

If I were a billionaire, I wouldn't need to have like 8 mansions, just a nice large home somewhere, use just enough for a pleasant life, then find a way to use to rest to generate more money, and most of that can go to charities and organisations of my choice. But most of what I want out of life simply cannot be acquired with money. It would all be pretty ho hum if I wasn't happy in the first place.

First, I'd pay lackeys to get my damn computer to work for Abe's Exoddus.

Then, I'd buy an Xbox. And Munch's Oddysee. And a Bootleg version of Steef. Then I'd laugh at you all.

Then, I guess I'd leave the rest up to imagination.

Paramiteabe...I also dream of staring my own film company and becoming the next great Writer/Director! If I had that much money, I'd get my company going, and once I had a steady income of lots of moolah, then comes my dream home! Home movie theater, waterfalls............you get the idea.

If I had that much money, I'd set aside part of it to give to Shriners Hospital for Children, and then I'd buy a huge mansion that I could get lost in!(In a good way.) I'd have a pool that had an aquarim all the way around the edges of the pool, so it looks like i'm swiming with a whole bunch of fish, but not really. And then I'd be the lead actor in the number 1 movie in america and make more money! I'd have raquitball rooms where I could play. I'd have a Hottub in my HUGE bedroom, and other stuff like that!

Happy

If I had loads of money I would still live in an average house with average cars and entertainment and furniture, etc... I would use most of my money to pump out successful films, tv shows, comics, books, videogames so that I can share my ideas with the world through the medium of entertainment. And of course I would help out people I think deserve help. I'm not the type of guy to give free money to bum's but I would be willing to help them get an education and/or a job.

I would also have a small zoo and professionals to take care of my pets since I'm busy making movies and cartoons.

I also think that your dreams will work out for you paramiteabe! When I get my dreams going, and have all that money, I don't want to be a big snob, because I worked to get there and didn't have it handed to me........That makes me deserve it more. I don't think it's wrong to have a big dream house, because I'll appreciate it so much. I just want to live happy without worry. It's like when they say, "The sweet isn't as sweet, until you've tasted the bitter." I've tatsed the bitterness of life; I've had enough of that! I'm ready for the sweet, and I know it's coming!

Of course its worth while. Unless you really and truely work for it thats what counts. When you work so hard for something like that big of a dream then when you get there its like you look back to this day and say to yourself "I did it!"

Thats the reward the fruits of your labor and that is the truth. I work real hard at what I do. Paintings and illustraition projects take months to complete to be real good professional like. Sure I can whip one up quickly but I may change the idea around. Its the reason why I take so long posting my art work in fan cornor. I am busy doing it. When I finnish a long painting usually I tend to go out to someplace fun. I say to myself "I did this!" Once you get to College its like a whole new world for ya. It opens so many doors that have been closed on you before and you start molding your dream in place building that most important part of success the foundation. If you want to be the next Lorne Lanning then College is your ticket. The only true way to get to the top is you must start at the bottom which is pretty much reality not wishful thinking. You just got to say to yourself I am hear whats it going to take to get there? And then go from there.

When I start my Movie Company, I'm going to Invest in the workers. I watched a tv special that highlighted this one company...Not sure wich one.....Anyway, The Boss made sure all his workers were happy. ALL of them! He knew everybody and this one time he got an icecream truck to stop by, so his workers got to take a break and have whatever they wanted. Now...this is a huge company(I remember that), and everybody loved their job, so they worked ten time harder, cus' they has fun at thier job. I want my company to be like that. You know...Give everybody a mini-fridge filled with their favorite stuff in their workspace. If you make your workers enjoy their job, they get more done and with better quality. I think OWI has a good working environment and it's companies like that that make dreams happen! That's what I'm going to do when I make my billion!

Easy, I'd buy clothes, perfumes, ummm.... shoes, a matching mobile phone for every shirt, the beverage chain store Alko, Marlboro company, a new house, a car- Jaguar and a bottle of Fanta.

I'd buy myself a nice car, most likely some sort of Mercedes Benz, possibly the Mercedes Sports. Mum quite likes that one.

Then, I'd spend the rest on food. Yes, food. I'm starving, and I've already eaten more than I should be able to... I love a fast metabolism. Too bad it's going to disappear soon

Oh, and I'd buy a bottle of Fanta too

If I had a billion dollars, I'd use my money and power to take away the lesser beings' money...gradually collecting all the money in the world 'till I'm the own all the money in the world, and all the currency printing companies...just in case...then I will become ruler of the world, and everybody else will be my slaves...

I'd invest in more and more money to obtain power in order to stop corruption, control human over-population, help animals and environment, create a universal currency, educate the masses and sort this world out because it can DEFINITELY be a much better place.

If I have some money left over after saving the world, I'll retire as the nicest dictator on earth, and buy myself a house powered by natural electricity with mini-music and art studio, and room with state of the art home cinema entertainment system. And a sanctuary of pets if they want to be owned. Not much to ask really.
