View Full Version : If you had the money...

02-02-2013, 06:49 PM
What would you buy first? What would you definitely get because you've been waiting forever to save up, but could never quite reach?

It sounds daft, but the first thing I would do is buy a top-end PC, then go out and purchase all of the Sims 3 expansion packs. I smurfing love that series, but my puny laptop can only barely play it. :( Bear in mind that they've released like 8 or so expansion packs, so to buy the games alone (not just the PC), that would be over 100 pounds, not counting the additional stuff packs...

What would you get if you had the money?

Weakling ‎– Dead As Dreams (Vinyl, LP, Album) at Discogs (http://www.discogs.com/Weakling-Dead-As-Dreams/release/1367342)

Vinyl copies go for $400 these days :(

I'd probably eventually choose something more practical though, like better vinyl ripping equipment or an even better computer :monster: Or just move somewhere more suited to my temperament than Florida :monster:

I would buy a HUGE FLUFFY CANOPY BED and people to set it up in my bedroom.

And then I'd sleep for twenty years.

I would buy myself a plane ticket to Australia and pay to be able to complete the last semester of my Degree abroad.

You little sweety you

A house. I'm assuming this is a money no object scenario, so a real nice one, and a better one for my parents too.

02-02-2013, 11:17 PM
I'd travel and visit people. Everywhere. Constantly.

New car, LASIK eye surgery, and a new top-of-the-line laptop. I'd probably get the surgery first, because I've been wanting to do that for a couple of years now.

02-03-2013, 12:39 AM
A secure comofortable luxurious life.

edit: Also hedonistic

02-03-2013, 01:45 AM
Get LASIK, refurbish my car, build the most powerful PC and build a recording studio.

02-03-2013, 01:52 AM
I would save and invest for the future.

If I didn't need to do that, there's a car build I have in mind. No surprise there.

A nice little beach house and the same thing that Lockharted said.

02-03-2013, 02:39 AM
Everything I want you can't buy. Like sleep. I need more sleep.

I'd buy a new kidney. :(

I'd buy a new kidney. :(

Would you replace your heart with it so you could drink more and care less?

02-03-2013, 03:14 AM
Can't buy me love. So I'd spend my money on trips and lessons. Of course, a car wouldn't hurt.

02-03-2013, 06:32 AM
Watch this video. There's nothing about economics in it. Or trolling ancap nonsense.

A cute little house in Italy and a long vacation for me and Shorty.

Wait no, the first thing would be this full collection (http://nerdapproved.com/approved-products/action-figures-of-us-presidents-as-monsters/). Then the other stuff.

02-03-2013, 02:22 PM
EoFF :mwahaha:

02-03-2013, 02:28 PM
The Papacy.

Not gonna lie, I would be one fucking amazing Pope.

02-04-2013, 05:38 AM
A car, a house, and a good education for my son.

Also, one of those waterfall pools. And of course whatever zany car stuff my boyfriend wants.

02-04-2013, 09:04 AM
A coffee shop bakery, either in New York or San Francisco, and the rights to public viewings of every horror film ever starring Lon Cheney, Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi and Vincent Price so that I could put them on repeat in my cafe and not get sued.

i'd buy some land and a house

High five for practical people!

And then I'd put a jacuzzi in the kitchen.

If I had the money, I would buy land, predominantly the kind with houses on it. It's the best investment anyone can make, so yeah. If I genuinely had the money, I suppose I would buy all the land in the world. :mwahaha:

If we're being a little less silly about things, I would buy Manchester United and Square-Enix and some properties around the world.

But realistically, if we're talking money that isn't in the billions, I would buy properties in various countries. Then I would buy EoFF and take Danielle on a world trip holiday that would last quite some time.

02-04-2013, 06:59 PM
I got yelled at for not saying something couple-y. So babe and I would take the Trans-Siberian Railway from Russia to Japan, stopping along every little place that we could.

02-04-2013, 07:37 PM
Id go on a lifelong trip to study as many martial arts as i possibly could ^^

02-04-2013, 07:45 PM

Hell yes. I am freaking tired of apartment living. I want a place for my dog to run free without needing a leash.

Then I'd fund myself to make a video game.

Then I'd take whatever was left over, turn it into coins, and do a Scrooge McDuck.

02-04-2013, 07:52 PM
Driving lessons and a car

A hardcore laptop

Laser eye surgery

a thai bride

A car, then my own apartment, then a real good laptop, then upgrade my desktop PC.
