A million dollars
« on: March 22, 2016, 06:53:21 pm »
Hello everybody, what would you do if you had a million dollars?
I personally would donate half of it to charity and animal shelters. The rest would be to help my family with situations.

Well that depends, is it a small loan of a million dollars?

If I'm being honest, I'm not sure. It really depends on the conditions, like if I won it I'd probably give a good amount to charities and such, like you said. But if I earned it, I'd probably use it as efficiently as possible and be cautious of whether I need or want something.

Like you said I'd definitely donate either a quarter to half of it. Maybe a quarter first, The next half I invest. The last quarter I spend for personal uses. Like a new computer, expensive programs, college, and drawing class.

Well, a million dollars is a lot of money. Investment would be the smartest idea wouldn't it? Then you could essentially be set for life with something that on paper looks like it may last... ten years? But I would take some out to pay for college, and get those debts cleared right when they appear, takes off a huge financial strain.

Now, with the money invested, I'll have a bit more than a million dollars after a while. I would definitely donate excess money to charities, cancer/AIDS research, impoverished areas of Africa and other underdeveloped nations (preferably ones that aim to boost the economy rather than flat-out donating due to the fact that it has a much better long-term benefit to the country.)

I would do everything I can to turn it into more money and get as rich as I can. Then I would buy an island or take over a small country.

College would most definitely be worth using some of the money for. Or a university.

Pay off family's debts. Buy myself and my sister nice houses. Put some aside for me and my sister's college. Make a few well placed investments, and give whatever is left to charity.

Pay off bills, Get a new house and car(s) for my family, Get a good gaming pc and games, and then save the rest. If only :(

OH! I'd also try to visit all the places I want to visit. Or just completely move.

Throw into investments, generate a bunch of background cash that I can pretty much live off of for the foreseeable future.

Surf the internet, browse memes. The life.

I would probably go to college with it
And use it wisely
Like get stuff I need first
Set some aside for an emergency fund
Help my family with stuff
Then buy a bunch of cute clothes

If the average fursuit costs $1500-$3000 dollars, plus the additional payments of staying in the queue, and shipping... I could commission approximately 375 to 415ish fursuits from various makers and have Cleo become the next Syber.

I'd love to use that money to help out a local animal shelter (and probably a couple other local businesses), and to give friends an extra hand with paying for college. Plus, that would probably have me set for the future when it comes to bills and personal expenses.

Edit: Forget everything I said. I'm gonna buy every single taco shell from every Taco Bell in America. No real reason why. I just feel like it.
