    I would pay my folks mortgage, but they've already done that themselves. So in all seriousness, my list would be:

    Donate 1.25m to cancer research, 1.25m to the Macmillan nurses for the time and effort they put into caring for my Nanna in her last year.
    Buy the house I'm currently renting.
    Buy a plot of land on the Gower, turn it into a reasonably sized recording studio, and build the house around it, and let local lads come and use it.
    Buy a passport, and go travelling.
    Put 10m in savings for the proverbial rainy day.
    Put 500k into a friends cleaning company.

    And for the frivolous stuff:

    A PRS double cutaway guitar.
    A JCM-900 Marshall stack.
    6 Vox AC-30's stacked.
    A Tama double-kick drumkit.
    A Gibson Explorer.
    A Toyota Supra, 3l twin turbo, Abflug bodykit, Do-Luck Double six wheels, and generally jazzed up.
    A Saxo VTS. (my daily driver)

    I'd put something like 500k to one side for treats for my nieces and nephews, and about 1m for my kids, assuming someone would a) be daft enough to fall for me, and b) it would be medically possible for me to have kids of my own.

    But yeah. The rest would be invested into projects that grab my interest, and property.

    I would hire an air balloon to go over the stadium on the final match of the world cup in South Africa and empty bag falls of cash out down to the stadium during the last half of the game

    I'd buy Los Angeles and a billion diggers and demolition cranes and fulfill Bill Hicks' dream of it falling into the ocean, leaving only Arizona Bay :D

    to quote some old movie (was it one of the Crocodile Dundee movies? Could be):
    "Buy a small Island somewhere... Hawaii maybe"

    Couldnt agree more with that. Most of the people nowadays live under the poverty levels which that means not even food or water. I see these kind of conditions every day and I am afraid that is getting closer to me too. Hope something will change but as long corrupted people are in the governments I am afraid that nothing is going to change.... ViVa La Revolution

    Buy Scarlett Johansson.

    Or if she's not for sale, I'd settle for having Morgan Freeman narrate my life.

    I would pay Versace to make me a suit out of money, then I would go shopping around London wearing it and haggle the prices of goods in the shops

    Excuse me? Stop posting stupid stuff in a thread based on a make believe scenario. How is what I say any different to what you say, no one has any idea what they would do if they had this money, not until they actually have it.
