    DANG, 1 Billion is a lot of money!

    I would quit my job and hire my boss~!
    Tour the world and enjoy life~
    Buy a vineyard and retire to the countryside (For the nice view, quiet surroundings and wine~)
    Marry my girlfriend who has supported me through everything and loves me for who i am.:)
    Adopt kids from poor countries
    Fund cancer research (Hopefully they don't turn us into zombies!!)

    I believe to have some future recurring income so, I would prefer to buy some house(s), commercial space(s) and then rented them. After that I purchase own house with good furniture, buy a new car (not high budget). I also like to go for world tour (I've already lovely wife & kid so no need to adopt ;))

    I do agree for "Fund cancer research (Hopefully they don't turn us into zombies!!)". I'll also share 5% from my total fund to them.

    My plan to cover above all expenses in max. 70% of fund and then keep 30% fund to bank for another recurring monthly income source (I'm already my own boss so no need to do job ;)) and make me free entire day to enjoy with my wife and kid. :)

    Buying property is a nice move! But i have no relevant experience, so not really my cup of tea.
    I am the boss of my own website, but i hold a job to satisfy the expectations of my family and society. It is such with asian families. (Well, at least my family.) To have a successful career is seems to be a required before my girlfriend's parents allow me to marry their daughter. So i guess i cant quit yet. :)

    Such is the life. Being able to do anything you want, anytime you want! FREEDOM!
    But i'll also pick up some new hobbies to do with my family. You know, to do new things together and experience new things. :)

    If I suddenly found myself with a billion dollars I'd enjoy it until I woke up. Then realizing that it was only a dream, I would then get back to work.;)

    Even if it was just a dream, i'm sure it would be one awesome dream!

    hahaha, i think by the time you spend it all, you'll become tired of spending money!

    If I had the money, 1 billion.
    I'll keep the 100 million.
    I will donate another 900 million.

    $1,000,000,000 is a heck of a lot of money, for sure. I think if I had that amount of money I would further secure my business and company and secure some of my designs via patents and such for the future. I think that I'd have a great lifestyle and be able to be a massive success in life too.

    If I had 1 billion dollars, I'd buy over digitalpoint from shawn and hire a staff to ensure that threads like these do not exist on my forum :)

    I'd go on Shark Tank to help out young entrepreneurs and make more $$ in the process. Plus, I'd get to know Mark Cuban!

    I would invest in lot of things and from one billion I would make ten.. I will probably try to control everything I can, and become one of the most powerful people in the universe...

    I'd set up my own media outlets, especially in the Far East. I'd probably choose to live in Japan. Finally, I'd donate to a few charities and educational institutions.

    I'd buy enough land to create 7 kingdoms and sit on my Iron throne in kings landing barking orders, muahaha.
