I would have to agree with USAirways737 . I would probably also buy an Eastside mansion, a house in London, Miami, LA, Rio, Innsbruck, Hong Kong... the list could go on... 1000 million dollars is a lot! Probably would be able to get a whole fleet (and pilots too)! Oh- but taxes would be about 40%, so I would really only have 600 million . only.. haha. Probably 200 or so million to go to charity... I can only dream.

1. Buy a 747X
2. Buy a Hawaiin island from the govt. If I can't do that, then any other tropical island will do.
3. Be a contestant on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" (don't ask)
4. By a souped up computer (dual ghz processors, 512 k of ram, 2 70 gig hard drives, a GeForce II, etc)
5. Buy the top 10 floors of the Empire State Building and turn it into my own penthouse.
6. Pay NASA to send Regis and Kathy Lee to Mars, where they would annoy each other to death.
7. Pay CBS to cancel "Big Brother".
8. Pay the mafia to assasinate all boy bands.

First, deposit the stuff in the bank. The interest you get form that kind of money is more than you need! Then, I'd retire for life.
I'll buy a 747X or A3XX and a BBJ1 to land at shorter runways. Give some money to charity, buy all the luxury items you can think of and be happy!

I'd donate about $30 million of it to my University and have them rename the college of Social and Behavoiral Sciences, to the Bradley J Perl College of Social and Behavoiral Sciences. Plus they will have to rename a building or two after me. Then I would go and buy a new car, and a house. Finish up school. Pay off my college loans. Finish grad school... get a job. I'd just be really rich with nothing to do. Maybe buy a controlling interest in a small airline.

I would probably buy a few big homes in New Port, Venice, Monaco, and Paris. Then I'd get a 777-300 and a Gulfstream V. Might build a really big Zeppelin while I'm at it. Then, I would invest whatever might be left.

I would definitely not buy a private 777, even though it is a tempting prospect. I like travelling on actual airlines.
For what I want to do, I would need a few more billions, but I would probably:
Donate 50-100 million to selected charities
Put 200-500 million into investment and holding accounts
Use the rest to help finance the actual construction and/or research and development of various civic projects in San Diego (a new airport, ballpark, redevelopment of residential and business/industrial areas).

Louis: If I had another billion dollars (cuz I already have my first billion), I'd give it to you! If you are so unhappy in this country, the sooner you leave, the better it will be for the rest of us. However, happiness comes from inside. You will still be you. No matter where you go, you will find something to be unhappy about. May the good lord take a shinin' to yer forehead!

Why can't you just accept that fact that some people just don't like it here? Nothing against you or this place in general, but it just isn't me! I don't think you know me well enough to make a broad statement like that.
