How to Go Through $40 Billion - Page 3

post #31 of 72
Prince Jefri has GOT to be compensating for something. I mean, seriously. I understand that you would get used to being able to do anything money could buy...but, c'mon.

HOWEVER, if I had practically unlimited funding at my disposal I would get the sweetest wardrobe ever. Like, Vox's closet pics would be nothing compared to my closet. I'm sure many of us would agree on this.

It might be fun to buy up a bunch of Rock memorabilia - Jimi's guitars, The Beatles publishing rights, all of the remaining late 50s Les Pauls.

All clothes tailored, created just for moi. Lots of handmade shoes and shirts.

I'd buy up some networks and start the Atheism Channel, purely because it would piss so many people off. I'd get Bill O'Reilly to host it.

I'd buy Greece

I'd buy up all of the Dairy Queens and rename them to Dairy Drag Queen

Full page NYT, Google, Facebook campaigns to eliminate "epic" and "sick" from the lexicon.

I'd pay Dustin Hoffman to talk like Rain Main every time he went out in public.

Totally bring back the Woolly Mammoth

Sponsor an MTV program that demonstrated how Bob Marley stole "Buffalo Soldier" from The Banana Splits theme song.

I would be on vacation for a full year living it up.

I'd try and buy Chatsworth House. I'd buy more humble residences in South America and the Caribbean, including a modest jungle lodge, where i'd spend a month or two per year. I buy a few cars and a bespoke wardrobe. I'd invest enough money to make sure I didn't ever have cashflow problems. I would turn the rest of the money into a foundation that awarded grants for fundamental science research that i deem important and focusing in areas where it's typically harder to get funding because the pay-offs are distant. Oh, and a harem sounds nice.

Totally the harem.

Build a F1 raceway in all my estates all over the world.

Hold charity races.

Setup my own version of the Nobel prize.

Fund research on green energy sources.

Only own bespoke Lobbs, G&Gs, Isaia suits.

And maybe pay their way out of the B... no?

Going back to read this article right now. Sounds incredible.

This is like Brewster's Millions adjusted for inflation. Get Aziz Ansari to play the prince and we've got a successful remake on our hands.

Seriously, what did they do to deserve this money? If other people didn't find oil, build massive industrial complexes for manufacture of steel, plastics, rubber, etc , invent cars, planes, trains, ships, all the things that are needed for cars etc etc they would still be poor fucking nobodies.

Yet they are worshiped and have (literally) more money then God. If there is a case for us to take over oil rich countries this is it. A $40 billion investment in that shithole would've made it the best place in the world.

Invest $20B in various real estate around the world and low risk stock in companies that pay decent dividends to keep the cash rolling in.

Donate like $2B on the Texas Tech athletic program so that they could actually win some conference and national championships. Donate another $10B for academic research, scholarships, and to the endowment fund.

Buy nothing but bespoke clothes and shoes, nice jewelry, expensive cars. Roll with an entourage whereever I go. Get a harem going.

Buy the Texans and enough good players to turn them into Super Bowl champs (I know SB thing will never happen with the Texans but it's nice to dream).
