What would you do with £108 million pounds?
don't worry about it
just to fix the blue dots
That's at least £250m mate.
but not before deleting every single fucking thread and banning all you animals.
- buy a house for in Glasgow £1 million
- buy a house in Canada for mother in law on the lake £1 million
- give family members circa £100k each (10 to 15 or so, £1.5 million)
- give my mates some circa £50k each (10 mates probably) £0.5 million
- Go on holiday for a bit
- Stuff a mattress with £100 notes and sleep on it
- Donate £10 million to various charities.
And maybe a new sofa with what's left over.
Buy some property in London, the countryside, and New York, appoint a financial manager to deal with it all, maybe set up a decent sized charitable foundation, buy my parents/immediate family whatever they wanted, and devote my time to doing whatever the fuck I wanted, mainly writing, if I got bored set up my own publishing house or literary agency.
because I like to day dream about this stuff:
Houses/flats and modest, reliable vehicles (or some cash for those who do not drive) for close friends and family.
Sort out other friends debts
A nice house (possibly designed from scratch? Why not)
A flat in London
Place in LA
Invest in my friend's business/become partner
Long ass holiday to my favourite places and some new places
Set up a charity to provide music and sports equipment and tuition to people all over the country/world
My own cars, obvs,
Laser hair removal
hire out somewhere awesome for a bloody great on the house piss up for friendship network
House for me
Bung a load to charity
Probably bugger off on holiday for a bit
Then I'd just spend my time doing volunteering stuff. Might as well make myself useful.
and also poker nights
I'm pretty sure that he sits a few seats away from me at football (Crystal Palace), well he looks pretty identical anyway.
That will give it away
I live in Caterham and pass through Coulsdon each day, I may have just seen him around, but I'm sure its from football that I've seen him.
He also bought the ticket in Wallington, which is where I work.
...or else you're going to find Mr Trotter's new security detail wailing on yo' ass for stalking their employer.
was in my form group at school
Then I remember the £108m and thought that he was batting way below his average...
people may buy a house for £5million, fine, but the upkeep of that can be insane. Plus for that price you would be in the middle of nowhere or a posh part of a city. I'd rather just get a 500k place somewhere reasonable and kit it out with all sorts of snazzy stuff.
Cars - just honest reliable stuff.
Family - sort them out with some cash, business help, whatever.
I think I would spend my time volunteering, helping charities out and just seeing the world really. It would be amazing to have so much money you don't have to think about it. You could go into a shop and buy anything. You could buy everything in fact.I think my natural instinct would still be to save cash though, not just buy £400 underpants and top of the range everything for the sake of it.
have a health check, then travel the world whilst designing my new house
1)floor with en suite bedrooms
Surely that should be on the ground floor, so you can have it open in Summer?
i dont want to do a barrymore
I'd start a record label and promote fucking ace bands and put on wicked nights and not be all shit like most other labels.
YEAH TAKE THAT THE STATUS QUO (not the band).
But what a way to go. Liver failure while snorting coke off a hot chick's naked ass while zooming along a motorway in Dubai in my Lamborghini.
Find it weird when people have actual detailed action plans for this sort of thing
it's called dreaming
You've never had a shit day at work where you allow yourself to daydream about this stuff?
Unless you're daydreaming about being a superhero or fighting dragons or sutin, then fair enough
that'll go well
We are owned by four fans nowwho are doing a great job, how is your new chairman getting on?
2) Personal trainer
3) See a lot of the world
4) Charitable Trust - which is what the ones that won £168m did. That way, no arguments from people about who gets what, while still ensuring you do something good with it. Seriously, you could go crazy with £10m. Do something useful with the rest, and use the massive amount of spare time you have ensuring that it's utilised properly.
Let any fucker know i had won, especially the fucking papers!
I'd pay so that DiS played In Da Club whenever you opened a thread.
