    Default A Very Important Question

    The following is a very important question. The question to end all questions, so I expect everyone to be super ultra mega serious in answering. No fun will be had in this thread as we answer this most important of questions! Okay, here's the question:

    You inherit 5 million dollars the same day aliens land on the earth and say they're going to blow it up in 2 days. What do you do?

    No laughing! Tis srs.

    I would get every bit of it in bills, put them on my bed, and roll around naked on them for the two days.

    Completely serious.

    I would pay my $5m to watch this and, when the mood struck me, make it rain.

    I would set up a quick dream fund and pay for as many dream life experiences for as many people as I could in the two days.

    Not much, I mean money would probably become useless if everyone thought the world would end in two days, I'd have to horde it in a personal vault incase we can stop the aliens and the world resumes a semblance of order afterwards.
    Kefka's coming, look intimidating!
    Have a nice day!!

    I'd withdraw it all. Store it at home, barricade myself in and wait for normality to resume. Yeah totally calling the alien's bluff on this one.

    Once normality has resumed I'd do what I'd do if I won the lottery, pay off family mortages, give some money to family, give some money to friends, donate a load to charities that are important to me, treat myself to a few things and consider going back into education or persuing some potential hobbies.

    Maybe I'll even buy the aliens a round of shots too.

    "Ho boy you got 'em good with that threat, you should've seen their faces. Priceless!"

    I would curse my rotten luck whilst at the same time be completely unsurprised.

    I build a spacecraft with super duper light speed and fly off in it. Then I can find out if those planets they talk about in Star Trek really exist (I call Delta Quadrant!)

    I would load up with ammo and weapons convert the rest to gold, and bunker down with some good friends and try to ride it out.

    I'd use it to get Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum on a plane and equip them with whatever they need to save the day.

    Yes but Will Smith never signed up for the sequel so he will no doubt let us all down.

    *glares at Psychotic* "clears throat* What? :P



    I'd probably just turn it into a universal form of currency, in the strictest sense of the word, pack a towel and raise my thumb.
