You're rich and famous. Now what?

Post by Anthroguy101 »

Imagine you become rich and famous. You have lots of money and are very popular. What would you do with it?

I gather my 5 closest friends and go with them to the amazing Port Aventura in Spain. And then we drink and party every night until we die >_>

Buy a few hundred thousand dollars worth of nice things, then start one or more massive charities and live somewhat modestly for the rest of my life.

I'd buy a few more weapons for accessories.
I'd go on a world tour and meet everyone I feel really quite close to online. (Especially Rendak <3)
I'd probably buy 2 fursuits. Specially designed for each of my fursonas.
I'd buy my very own '44' jacket that I've always dreamed of.

I'd have the time of my life. :D

I would go to multiple furry conventions and be all-out. If it's driving distance, I would go in a fancy car. If it's flying distance, then Business Class (or first class if there is no business class). I would always get the best room and buy tons of stuff. I'd also get a fursuit, of course.

I would invest in a company that can't loose. Kinda like google. I would then use that profit to take over the corn industry and gain even more profit.

No, wait.

Eh, I dunno. Probably go buy a bunch of stuff I always wanted but could never afford, pay off every last bit of debt that anyone I know has ever accumulated, then donate half of whatever's left to charity and put the rest in the bank and stocks.

I think a lot more about what I'd do with the attention than what I'd do with the money. Honestly, if you're famous then that means you have a legion of followers under your control, MUHAHAHAHAHA-HAHAHA-HAHA!!!! :twisted: *cough*

As long as I have more income, I would try to solve all those problems the government seem incapable of solving. Oh, and some nice things for myself, of course. Now only if they start selling Potions of Intelligence... I would buy a dozen of them for myself! :lol:

That's right! How could I forget abut buying new car! No point buying a club if I won't have a fancy car first to show off! Have to note this...

And I would choose Audi ;D My favorite car mark since I was like 5 years old.

I live in the most interesting and relaxing place on earth (probably somewhere in Europe), pay off all of my family's debts and expenses and live out my favorite hobbies for the rest of my life. Oh, and donate an enormous amount of it to charity, because I am very critical of wealthy people who hoard their money like greedy pigs :x

Well i have a deal with one of my friends that if either one of us gets significantly rich we give the other a lot of money, so that part first. Also another deal with a couple friends to buy the old cinema down the road that we all used to go to and fix it up and re-open it.

Build a large house on some deserted beach in NZ, include an airport with various military and civilian aircraft, put a lot of the money in the bank, live off the interest, and give any excess to charity.

(Fantasy)
-------> Buy a big house, new car(s), and more. :)
(What would really happen)
-------> I would go to business school and learn how to manage, and be able to live off of my money. I would Probably also get small job. I wouldn't like just living off of money. As cool as it sounds, it would make me lazy and I would not be able to understand the value of money. I would give a lot of my money to my church and my school, I would donate to charities, I might buy stock, save a lot of it for my kids (that don't exist yet O_o), and pay my parents back for all the things that they do for my.
Aren't I a great son?

It depends on how much money I have. In general if I have less than 50 million dollars I'd buy myself a new computer, a car, and then live an upper middle class life for the rest of my life. I'd probably spend a lot of my time being a perpetual college student.

If I have something like billions of dollars, I might get creative. Maybe purchase a lot of land and try to found a city-state or something, maybe get into politics (which I've considered doing anyway) and try to make some huge changes like repealing or adding constitutional amendments, or changing the entire government structure, or maybe get into state government and try to orchestrate a secession...I'd want to try to use the money to do something interesting, something world changing that would take a lot of effort.

If I have an amount of money in between a billion and 50 million, I'd just do the same thing except increase my own standard of living. Where with 50 million I would try to maintain an upper middle class life, with 350 million I might try to maintain a middle upper class life or something. The more money I had also the more projects I'd try to do, like maybe start a game company and design a game and then let it go, or fund a few films, things like that. But with those things, the point isn't to make more money, just to be interesting things to try.

On a more philanthropic note:

I'd use the money to fund groups that seek to improve America's standing to the rest of the world, and if that doesn't work: Macbeth for Senate, 2022.

I'd also use the money to buy water wells in Africa, set up wind turbines and solar panels, plant trees (courtesy of the Nature Conservancy), fund wildlife reservations, and start a company in which people can pay to scrub carbon dioxide from the atmosphere with machinery (thus attacking the problem at the root). Also, aerial reforestation.

I'd invest in the stock market, start more businesses and make more money. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Well, first off, I'd deposit half of it into a bank account... you know, live off the interest.

Second, I'd buy everyone on the forums a fur-suit, for whoever wanted one.
Then I'd buy a nice house for IceKitsune and I, somewhere in Southern California, nice and sunny.
Next, buy tickets to every Furry Convention and go to all of them.
After that, probably but three old cars, A Camaro, a Mustang, and a Challenger (working on myself :P) and fix them all up the way I want.

That's basically how I'd like to live my life if that happens... COME ON LOTTERY!!!

At first continue my studies. Then buy a lot of unnecessary stuff and then laugh at Slim's face. Ok, that was terrible.
Buy some companies like Google, Wikipedia, etc, mostly Internet companies and blablabla...

Personally, I'd start my writing into full swing. I'd outsource the creation of this comic to other artists who could pump out full-page stories every day under my direction. I'd be doing this so I also had room to start the animated cartoon version, which would be one of my many animated shows.

I'd start a policy of only continuing animated shows for as long as I think is necessary; much like television overseas, I'd only run a premise for a certain length of time so that everything can be packed into the number of episodes there are.

Even if I have serious stories to animate, I'd publish those in Japan first as they're a better market for them, but then I'd be able to turn around and grab a larger part of the serious animated market in America simply because it was of Japanese origin.

I'd have a large room of the best talent, similar to Pixar or Google, so that projects flow smoothly and at a rapid pace.

For every project I'd be optioned for on other media, I'd have to make sure that it's always done under my supervision. My goal at this point is not to make money, it's to make art--and if I'm going to be expanding in other directions, there's no reason that the movie or the video game or the holo-novel shouldn't be the best possible portrayal.

I lack that particular trait, unfortunately. That, and I happen to be a frugal person. I'd be one of those recluses held up in a manor somewhere. The most I can think of as to spending is doing so in the pursuit of knowledge. I'd hire teachers to come to my place and school me in languages, history, philosophy, psychology, and whatnot. Just any subject that caught my fancy.

Oh, and I'd fly to somewhere in the northern US or europe to be around snow every winter. I have only seen snow once in my life, so that would be fun.

I'd use half of it for whatever I want, and give the other half to my boyfriend, or other friends and family.
With my half, I'd visit my closer internet friends, pay off any debts that I somehow manage to acquire, buy a house big enough for whatever I need, an Alienware Area-51 ALX, a Jaguar, a Mustang, buncha Steam games, two more keys for a game I play, and other computer junk.
there is no such thing as luck. if there was, there would surely be at least one person with all of it, and nothing bad would happen to them ever. but as far as I can tell, bad things happen to everyone.
