I'd buy a bunch of foreclosed homes and give em back to the owners. In the event that the owner can not be located or does not wish to accept my offer, I would give it to a homeless family.

I would fund a project to give free energy to the world, like The Orion Project. The benefits of success are incalculable. Latest news here.

I'd buy out farms, supermarkets, hospitals, schools, etc... and turn them all into utility companies so for example, as long as people can pay monthly fees they can just walk into supermarkets and grab food, completely destroying the value of food relative to supply and deamnd which is honestly a stupid way to treat food in the first place.

I'd probably take these companies apart and sell them on a needs basis to local governments so it doesn't turn into a fascist conglomerate after I died.

Protection and land would be the two most important assets. I'd work on securing land and use my ability to grow vast amounts of food as leverage to change city infrastructures into something more efficient and environmentally sustainable.

Included in infrstructure are all the usual security and welfare measures, everything eventually to be sold to these local communities rather than congomerated into a federal system because 1. Vast Federal Policies ruin economies and people run their own lives better than bureaucracies do and 2. No one would have to go further than their own City Council to find their evil socialist dictator.

Then comes the sex and partying.

I would give it to whoever ELSE needed it, as money is not what is going to change everything for the greater good. Love cannot be bought, or sold.

Oh, I love this game. So does my mom. Whenever she has too much merlot she starts talking about what she would do with her lottery winnings. It's a hoot.

Now, we all know that money can't buy happiness. BUT, if you're already happy and then acquire some money, THAT'S when SH** starts getting fun!

SO here goes:

1. pay off my own debt including the balance of my mortgage
(you can't love others unless you love yourself) $150,000

2. have a big bash for all of my friends and family including airfare, hotel and all expenses for 3 days in a castle in Ireland or Amalfi Coast
(celebrate life) $250,000

3. at this party, distribute money in varying amounts to friends and family, especially focused on helping others pay off their debts and allowing my mother to live out her wine induced fantasies
(it is better to give than receive) $2,000,000

4. open an enlightenment retreat center closest to the most dangerous prison in America (Leavenworth?) and offer day programs to hardened criminals including the healing arts of ho'oponopono, shamanic practices, and ayurveda. Kansas will have a fit but....
(extremists often go from one extreme to the other!) $7,000,000

5. I don't know about number 5. Kids, it's gotta have something to do with kids. It would involve laughter, love, good food, edutainment (i can't believe i just used that word), nurturing and respect.
(i believe the children are our future....sing it with me everybody...)
$10,000,000

Dang, that money spent quick. I hope there's a few bucks left over for a vanilla latte and a new pair of boots.
(these boots were made for walkin'....oh ****, I'm losing it.)

Thanks for the fun Grasslands!

Open a farmhouse brewery and start a community of like-minded folks to grow organic food and live far from danger areas.

Of course, would still have money left and I like the idea of buying foreclosed homes and giving them back to the owners.

You immediately switch 50% of your dollar in physical gold and silver BUT outside of United States. If you need advise or some help to get the gold and silver and bunkered somewhere in Switzerland, please let me know.

25 % you invest into asian solar and green energy...This will be the next big big BOOM similar or even bigger than dot.com boom (can tell you more about this but not in the public forum.

With the rest of your money you buy a space in the "Ark" in Australia and enjoy your life yourself and donate as much as you can to people who have much less or nothing.

I would spend 51% of it on charity groups, all over the world...and would make sure to do this by my own, in person...just to be sure that the money would be spent for the ones among us that realy need our help desperately.

With the rest?? Don't know. It's pretty hypothetical...

I would start digging wells in Africa and install pumps so people would at least have water to drink and
irrigate their soil so they could grow their own food again.

Then there would still be some money left to spend on the work of Amnesty International

And then spend the rest on research on all kinds of free energy.

That would take enough time to keep me occupied for the rest of my life.

1. Donate money to Farm Aid and other worldwide foundations that support independence through sustainability.

2. Help fund community co-ops with eco-friendly hands on farming education for children.

3. Donate to Bill & Kerry.

4. Take out full page adds in all major newspapers stating why Bush/Cheney must be tried for war crimes.

5. Disappear.

O.K. here goes.

This is a general outline, not a “nuts & bolts” rigid plan.

I would start to buy up foreclosed properties and offer them to those in the property market looking and able to buy. (initially)
The mortgages would carry 3% interest rate and only be available from ethical lenders, based on an income calculation that is realistic, ie. Not based on 5 times salary etc.
The term would be altered to suite.
(Properties would only be available to people without the means to purchase outright, they can find their own)
The property could only be sold on to another member signed up to the scheme.

Each Mortgage would carry other conditions:

You only buy goods, services, etc from ethical suppliers.

Each able bodied member of the household (teenage upwards) to provide 2 hrs a week min, voluntary service to others ( preferably Elderly & Infirm at the top of the list ) who would also be signed up as a part of the scheme. Anything from grass cutting & shopping, to maintenance (qualified trades only), car repairs, holistic therapy etc.

Each member of the household, to spend a minimum of 2 hrs a week learning a new skill. Anything from languages to quantum math.

Each member to endeavour to only work for an ethical employer.

I think you get the picture.

I would also approach companies to sign up and become sponsors of the scheme, again only those who have or accept ethical trading policies.

This would start off small, $19.4million would not go far enough, but once companies and individuals got involved & active, I reckon it would snowball.

Once the system was up & running, profits and money generated would be offered as a grant system to cover future deposits of signed up members trying to get on the property ladder. Other forclosed properties could be purchased and offered with a subsidised rent, for those who wanted to rent rather than buy.

Then we could concentrate on other issues like the homeless, education, crime…………..

I could go on But I think you get the idea.
