I feel like, with a half a billion dollars, nobody can tell you your boobs are the wrong size in any direction.

"Aquariums are like science, art, and hypno-therapy, all rolled into one," I insisted.
"You're not putting a hundred gallon tank in the living room," my roommate replied.


10g "Community" of nothing but Danios - 2g (barely) planted Betta - 2.5g Betta - 1g Pond Snail Repository

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'

1) Throw in bank to collect interest.
2) Get a house, single story with a pool and hot tub built into the pool.
3) Help out my family with what they need.
4) Go crazy on my tanks and blow a good chunk on all ADA/ custom gear
5) Try the most expensive sundae and eat at the French Laundry
(4 and 5 are my splurging)
6) Use it to go to college without loans. I'm 14!!!
7) I have no clue what to due with the rest.

A great alternative would be to spend some money on protecting the dangerous five instead of shooting them...

Me, umm...I'd be utterly confused. Make sure everyone in my family never has to worry about money again, donate money to charity, environmental stewardship. Donate to my athletics programs so they stop sucking. Be a philanthropist and get invited to all kinds of black tie events. Expensive lifestyle and all that. Get my own plane and call it "The Pearl Gourami."

What good would gold really be though? You can't eat it. You can't really do much with it. Jewelry? Wire? If paper money is worthless better stock up on foodstuffs. Arms. Ammo. Things people would want to survive you save to barter. Gold?

Heh. Ignoring the poor excuses for eschatologists here, I would:
1: Pay off loans, purchase houses for family members, retire my parents and aunts and uncles.
2 Donate half after taxes to the church and various charities and scholarships.
3 Buy every newspaper possible with the remaining $100 million, combine most of their resources and do what needs to be done to make newspapers relevant again.
