Truth.

Before I met him, a friend inherited roughly a million dollars when his dad passed. He blew through it all in less than a year, and by the time I'd made his acquaintence, he was in debt and had nothing of substance to show for the inheritance - not even good memories.

I'd probably go to the Library.

Ask gdl about clothes? Pretty soon it would just be you sitting around in your Turkish socks and wicking underwear.

O RLY? Wouldn't you get sick of it after, like, two visits?

I'd buy the Paris branch of Hilditch & Key and relaunch it as a luxury brand with its own ateliers and better merchandise, the way the Dunhill 15 rue de la Paix was in 2003 and the way H&K Paris used to be. I'd renovate it, make the gorgeous old cage elevator work, and hire Pierre Duboin as the cutter.

Or I'd see how much it would take to donate to my alma mater on the condition they fire John Yoo.

Fixed.

In this order...

Pay off debt. Invest a fair share in my parents' business. Buy my brother and sister a house (well my sister would have a fund for when she's ready, she doesn't want to live in Las Vegas much longer). My cousin's got leukemia and the medical bills have practically bankrupted them so I'd help them out. Donate a large chunk to charities I like. Invest it so I don't have to work.

I don't want to travel. I don't really want to buy anything. I just want to stay in Atlanta and do what I feel.

I'd post here more.

1) Continually endow myself with available cyborg technologies, like visual overlay contacts, cochlear implants, vibrating penis, whatever wacky shit they come up with. 2) Can they do lung transplants? I want to smoke Camel Wides all day everyday. 3) A permanent room at the Bunnyhill Ranch. Even at $1000/night, that would only be $365k per year. 4) A recording studio. 5) Have more children. Like 80 of them.

I would open up a brewery and a movie theater that shows only silent movies.

and you would use this about 8 times max. Look, the bunny ranch is for any local yokel. You could join the Emperor's Club lilke Spitzer.

I don't want any chance of being a rich prisoner

Fund expeditions to do a lot of badass alpine climbing like the first winter 7 summits program, leading the first winter climb in Massif Vinson (Antarctica) and first winter expedition to South Pole, first winter climb of a Karakoram 8000ers (K2 would be great)... 5 milions should be plenty for these. After that, if I'm not dead, blowing at least 30 millions trying to win the America's cup. And finally travelling on budget and working like a business angel for greentech start-ups.

I would pay off everyone who is close to me's debt. Student loans, mortgages, credit cards, etc... Invest the rest. Give each of my best friends, sister, etc... like 50K to do whatever with. Then I would probably just keep working at my same job, but just with bigger balls. Then maybe stake myself into my own company. Make my money work for me. And buy a lot of expensive, matching clothes. like entire collections of shit so I look like a magazine ad.

Yacht
1-2 homes
give family some money
3 very nice cars
huge tour bus when not on yacht, like Madden (I hate flying)

These are about the only things I would go out and buy almost right away.
