Here are just a few.

Q of the day: What would you do with $700 billion?

**EDIT: More specifically what would you buy with it?

Buy a bunch of property up north. In the middle of it I'd build a GIANT custom Garage/Shop for working on and building cars/engines. Then I'd make some badass cars, and off-roading trucks. And some other stuff.

For $700,000,000,000 I suspect you could buy the entire UP, with cash to spare.

Can I go on record to say that calling this a "bailout" is completely incorrect?

I know that's what everybody is calling it, but it is still wrong.

Didn't mean that. But hell, the entire UP would be nice. But then I'd have to pay people to patrol and keep people out. Plus I'd want some left overs to live off ect.

With 700 billion, you could buy Microsoft, Apple, AND Google, and still have enough money left for lunch.

Let's see...  one bill for #1, three bills for #2 - no, for you maybe four...  #2 once each day, #1 four times each day, that's...  12 bills per day = $240/day.

So you could go to the bathroom for just under 800,000 years before running out of cash.

Buy a good peice of land here in Florida where it's not yet been tainted by development. Build myself a decent sized house, and build one hell of a garage. Then I'd get myself a couple new cars. Probably a couple Toyotas (Tacoma, FJ Cruiser, FJ40, Landcruiser, Celica Alltrac), an STI and a GTR.

ummm buy a school, turn into paintball feild, buy stuff thats better than what I have(nice house, car, gf no lol...) and invest/bank the rest, live off of the interests...my dream would be to put it into an account so that my future kin can only access the interest(well that interest is going to be amazing) and live off of that, and whatever they make they put into acount untill they can buy Canada...I got some big dreams for it....oh btw Id have me frozen and invest said cash in cryogenics and such(frozen with a shotgun just in case of future zombies/aliens or whatev).        
its easy to be famous, just set yourself on fire

Here you go.  As a bonus they're even sleeping together.  Now give me my money.

Guys wouldn't use bills for #1.  An ability to save money that once again proves our natural superiority.*

I'd buy a couple of things.**
  • A national forest (and only let in people I like)
  • Several square miles of some abandoned inner city.  (So I could fence it off and sponsor televised gang battles.)

*And if a woman feels the need to wipe off the seat . . . then she's the one wasting money.
**If my reasons sound selfish, that is only because they are.
