View Full Version : What would you do with $100,000,000.00?

With the Powerball and other lotteries getting so amazingly high so often, I've often wondered what my fellow CGTalkers would do if they won that kind of money.

BTW... happy 7000th General Discussion Thread... 7000 mostly pointless threads, lets see if this one can be too!!!:D

I for one would spend the next few years in school, believe it or not. There are a handful of schools that I go to sleep at night thinking "Damn, what you could learn". I would then spend the next year or two making a short that I have been pondering for a few years now. Then I think I would party for a year or two.

I also think I would donate some serious cash to some medical research groups (arthritis, juvenile diabetis, alzheimers) and to a select few social organizations who know how to manage themselves responsibly and actually do some good (Human Rights Watch, Boy & Girls Clubs of America).

In the end I think it wouldn't change me completely, I think it would just propel me faster to accomplishing my dreams.

50mil to charity. United Way most likely, since donations don't go towards advertising. Ya gotta give back:)

50mil for me. Buy a nice house, build the best damn home theater system, and upgrade to dual Xeon 3.0Ghz's. Buy pretty much everything I've always wanted, and save the rest for retiremtent:)

JDex
08-24-2003, 07:20 AM
Wow... half to charity... that is damn generous. I was thinking 1/4.

Well the material posessions are certainly on my agenda as well.

Big house (5-7.5k sg ft) on woods surrounded acreage
------------------------------
16 seat theater
audio recording studio and control room
mocap/blue screen room (high ceiling)
4 br 3.5 bath
5 car garage w/ work bay
stylin kitchen
grand dining room
billiards/bar room
in-ground heated pool w/ phat deck
solar panel/residential fuel cell electrical setup
------------------------------

Chevy K3500 4x4 with matching portable a/v studio trailer (for remote work)
1964 Pontiac GTO
Newest Corvette each year
Conservative Suburu Legacy

Couple of various new computers

32-100 processor Xeon Render Farm

I think I'll call it Dexwalker Ranch:thumbsup:

Hey NTmonkey, we can have that party at my new ranch.

I'd live off the interest. Yeah, it's unethical, but it would be nice to have no financial worries. I'd get myself a small apartment and just take it easy (with a new computer & a nice home theatre system, of coarse;)). In my abundant spare time, I would finish my grade 12 and perhaps go to uni/college. I'd also like to do the whole "see the world" routine. That's about it, I guess.:hmm:

Give the money to Squaresoft, to make for me a Personal Version of Final Fantasy :scream:

MCronin
08-24-2003, 08:03 AM
First I'd probably give a couple million a piece to each member of my immediate family. I'd force my dad to retire early, and help him design and build a prototype car and see if we can get sponsors and enter it into the American LeMans series. It'd probably cost several million to build the car and at least 10 million or so to run one season.

I wouldn't give any of it to any existing charities, I'd start a scholarship fund, seeded with 10 million dollars, for adults over the age of 28 who want to go back to school, and I'd be the first scholarship recipient :P

Other than that I'd probably spend alot of time reef diving, and probably dig up some dinosaurs in South America. I'd like to go on expeditions to the most remote spots in the world, help fund a civilian aerospace research project maybe... Maybe learn to fly a helicopter. I can honestly say the last thing I would spend the money on would be cars and a big house.

Whoever asked this question is EVIL!!


I got a list of a dozen small spiritual-leaning "projects" at www.inspirejoy.50megs.com/mranim.htm
Some DVD college classes available for $20 just to show it could be done
R&D Documentary channel/non-profit
World Minimum Wage Bank, to keep track of oppressed folks
Debt-free enterprise edutainment for youngsters, with some innovative ideas
Some sort of meta-project info bank building on the Askme.com model; perhaps with actualization exercises, as well as productivity methods/engines
Spiritual research in transcending subjective illusion
Renaissance parties


Gotta go

if you got $100 million in the USA, your good old pal Uncle Sam would take more than half of it for TAXES. I'm pretty sure that you would be left with less than $50 million (however unfair that is).

But, I would give every last cent away. I'd just pay for my tuition for the next 6 years (+ materials and lab fees).

I'd give the money to artists that want to go to school but can't afford it. I wouldn't even pay my own debt off. I'd send a post card to all the companies that I owe money to, saying that I had the money to pay them off, but to go #$@! themselves cause they ain't every gettin tha money :p!

It's only money after all!

with that type of money you could be so famous that you would not have to spend a dime in everyday life. man the way people think is crazy. example at a restaurant. hey thats the richest guy in the town. hello mr rich guy. since your so rich and have so much money the meal is on the house. being rich and famous means that you spend less money than a bumb. what a stupid way of life. im saying that because I have no money. if I had that type of money I say screw the bumb im getting free lunch.

well with all that I didnt answer.

I would invest and manage an animation studio

Equinoxx
08-24-2003, 12:23 PM
I think i'd be doing the same thing as i'd be doing now, work in 3d animation.

altho homebase would be a huge friggin house with some land around it, possible some nice cars and tell the boss to go **** himself whenever i don't feel like doing anything, it's not like i have to be affraid he'll fire me, cause if he does i wouldn't care :D

also, i'd upgrade my system to dual 21" flatscreens [do they excist yet ??]

but that's about it, give some to charroty, give some to familly, then live an easay life till i die :cool:

oh well, so much for dreams ey ;)

leigh
08-24-2003, 12:30 PM
I would give half of it to an animal charity (I generally don't give to human charities), and would use the rest to buy a Moroccan style villa in the middle of nowhere and would live for the rest of my life as an eccentric recluse.

I would still continue to do work from home though - I am the kind of the person that needs to occupy my time doing work. I would charge very little for it though, and would probably do a lot of free work too :)

Oh and I would also have a massive library in my house that I would fill with thousands and thousands of books and would definitely spend a lot of time reading :D

show
08-24-2003, 12:36 PM
Several nice houses, more cars than i can count using my toes and fingers... I would probably still go to university for a bit (in the US of course if I could budget for it hehe), but it would have to be part time to allow for beach time :)

Well first I'd handle my debts and see a good doctor and dentist. Then I'd set up an account to live modestly mostly off the interest, travel the world, go to schools ( whatever I may be interested in at the time ), donate to select research projects ( maybe start a few of my own :) ). I'd probably eventually settle in somewhere, someplace quiet and beautiful, you know a tropical paradise or something. I'd avoid the whole 'a car for every day of the week', 'mansion in California', 'never wear the same cloths twice' crap. Ah life would be so much simpler. Money doesn't buy happiness, but lack of money sure as hell can suck the happiness out of you.

Aww man! I can't believe this question was asked!

* Take care of family and friends;
* Build a house that has an indoor basketball court, recording studio, 'computer room', theatre room;
* Take lots of courses (drawing, CG, animation, etc.)
* Do lots of travelling;
* Donate to a few charities;

Here's the scenario for paying off my loans: get a bunch of $100 bills, walk in to my bank and say, "y'know those student loans I've paying off for the last x years? Here's $100, $200, $300..." and just count off the bills. Maybe they should be $1000 bills. (I know it couldn't really happen like that, but since it is *my* fantasy :) )

And if I won the Powerball, that's U.S. dollars that I am converting to Canadian dollars - I'd have even more! Muah ha ha ha!

>> "buy a Moroccan style villa in the middle of nowhere and would live for the rest of my life as an eccentric recluse."
So Leigh, right now you're just an eccentric urbanite? Just kidding :p

iBlue
08-24-2003, 04:43 PM
100 million.. hmm well i would set up a bank account where all interest from the savings account would be dumped in the checking, then i would deposit the 100mil into the savings and live the rest of my life off of interest. I wouldnt spend it all in a day. Then i would prolly freeze the savings account from having anyone take any of the money out of it besides for the preprogrammed interest transfer, id want it to be there for my kids and there kids, like a lasting legacy that none of them could just stupidly spend in one day and not leave anything for future generations. :)

Newest Corvette each year? You obviously don't know much about vettes. Each year they get uglier and uglier because in 2000, they changed designers again, so now its going downhill like the viper gts. 71 vette and 91 viper all the way :D

I would probably buy a midsized class c motorhome and travel around california alone or with a girlfriend if she can go. I'd also buy a nice house with a big spa. I would save 10 mil for retirement probably.

manfriday
08-24-2003, 06:21 PM
ok, well in serisouness I would give half of it to the damn government whether I liked it or not.
With whatever remained I would set up trust fund of my kids to the could go to whatever college they wanted no matter what happened in the future.
I would give a big chunk of it an organization like Compassion International (which I already am involved in). I would give anothre big chunk of it to a Pro-Life organization (not operation resuce not down with those guys).
I would buy a nice house in upstate newyork with a great deal of land.
I would buy a very big lawnmower to take care of said land.
I would build a recording studio in the basement, better than the one I have now.
I would then spend the rest of my days doing pretty much what I do now. Mowing the lawn, writing music and modeling characters (ususaly rather poorly).
In fact.. It's time to mow the lawn right now.

In the immortal words of Eddie Izzard:
Ciao

sabrina
08-24-2003, 06:35 PM
I would live nicely for the rest of my days off of ten per cent of this amount, and then donate the rest to R&D in the field of Humanity, with the vision of bettering the planet through education and unilateral support of such.

Signal2Noise
08-24-2003, 07:25 PM
Well, that equates to almost 141 million in Canadian. Quite a bit of chump change indeed.:drool:

First, I'd try to help the victims of forest fires raging in Interior British Columbia and Western Alberta.

Then I'd give some to immediate family so they would not have to work (or work very little) and enjoy the rest of their lifetime.

Then I'd purchase top end CG software and hardware, build a render farm on an island or lakeside/oceanside property somewhere and live there for the rest of my life with my family.

The rest I'd invest and travel lots.

If I was given 100,000,000 dollars, I'd go find the snobbiest rich folks (you know the kind), and ruin their lifestyle. I'd buy a mobile home, and park it right beside their mansion. I'd join their country club, and Caddyshack it to hell. And then I'd exchange about 10,000 into quarters and then proceed to scatter it in a rich neighborhood and watch ppl pick it up like birds eating seeds. And of course I'd videotape all of this and send the rest to charity so they have money and something to laugh at.

later,

then i would build myself a castle there, i wuld ride only horses (**** cars, horses rule) then i would crown myself as the king and i will declare independence from canada. well also ill do probably all the stuff that ppl said already (excpet charity and cars)

After making Bill Gates my bitch, i'd give a good amount to all the 3d software companies to try to convince them to lower their prices so that more financially challenged individuals could afford their products. I'd set up some kind of conference for Cgtalkers only (kinda like 3d Festival, but for all of us), and have it in the US (preferrably East Coast).

Make the most ridiculous renderfarm imaginable
Of course have my own studio, (again, only employing CGtalkers)
Get a modest house, nothing too big
Meet everyone that I've always wanted to meet
Help out my fam so that no one would ever have to work again
give an extreamly generous amount to charity (prob United Way, since they fund my job right now)
Buy a nice guitar

But i think the best answer to the question, 'what would you do with
$100 mil' is:

ANYTHING I WANT

08-25-2003, 12:00 AM
I persoanly Would right off the bat give 10% to the church, as I wish to listen to my God, and hey it was his anyways.

Then I would live off the intrest minus 10% off of that to the church every payment. I would probebly end up buying a nice house for my family, and once i moved out another one for myself and my eventual family. I would Start NemusDev Into a Company and work on what i love, computer games. I'd prolly never end up touching the money after that, just the intrest.

I'd make sure to only fly out CGTalkers that agree with me on everything of course though:hmm: ...and the chicks ..of course.

Actually the way the powerball works is they create an annuity that is good for 26 years... they put whatever amount into it that with the fixed interest rate will total the Jackpot. Then the annuity pays 312 payments (26x12months) to the winner. Or the winner can opt for the cash prize and recieve the total amount that was going to be put in the annuity (usually about 60%).

The problem with the cash option is you're tax percentage is much bigger so your jackpot really tanks.

100,000,000/312 = 320512.82 per month minus about 28% tax ($230769.23 monthly check $72,000,000 total)

or

60,000,000 minus 44% tax ($33,600,000 all at once)

I personally would take the annuity... but thats just me.

$72,000,000 / 320512.82 per month = 225 = 0$

So all your money will go to the gouvernoment cause of taxes... in the 225th month (18 years) you'll get 0$. taxes sucked you up :(

i suggest to leave the country.

Rent out a few levels of building somewhere in the city and build a network of Dell's, with state of the hardware.(Maybe 50 machines or so.) Once this place is fully licensed, I'd then Put an add in the paper, and personally pay a visite to 3D schools all over Canada and the States, and possible other parts of the world. Only so i could notify the up coming artists about what i am doing, and there is pay happening, That way i'll recieve Demo reels from all over.

Only thing i would want first is to make a company Demo reel....A really good one, so we can generously send DVD's of our capabilities to potential clients. If 3 years went by, and the business wasn't even breaking even, I'd then shut down the Animation house, and reset my priorities.

I'd rather create jobs than give a large sum of money to a charity. Although Giving to charity i would do.Only cause it would keep my conscious from harrasing me. I would rather do the charity myself, that way i can see where the money is going.

As for leasure time, I would have quiet a line up of Sport Bikes, for myself and my real friends, And a few cars for my family and i. A Porsche 911 Turbo for sure, But no Super Fantasy cars. I'd like always know what it feels like to want.

I'd also have kids. Lot's of kids. cause they are the only thing that will be with you when your old, and you won't die alone.

Every investment i mentioned here would take place over a period of time. I wouldn't want to put a stopper on any of these plans. If i won the money, i don't think i'd ever feel that i earned anything no matter how hard i work. I can only imagine i would become inslaved in work, for the sake of sanity. I'd probably even get rid of all the nice toys and live off of what i earn, and keep the forture for Family and Business only.

I'd put the money in an account, and wait for the right time to buy massive amounts of tech-stock. (about 50%) actually, you should have done that around sept11. I know, sounds cruel, but you could have made huge amounts of money.
Invest those dollars baby!
Open up some businesses, and make even more money. Turn those millions into billions.
The only way to make large sums of money in this world, is having so much money that you don't even need more.

Then go the charity way. You can't do jack-sh*t with milions. If you really want to change stuff, you need billions upon billions.

I'd keep just enough to manage me and my family/friends. And just keep on working. I'd also want to be self-sufficient.
Having large amounts of money changes people. As long as you got your friends, family, and generally are a happy man, you wont care for money.

OR!

Spend it ALL, in one year, on alcohol, parties, women, drugs, cars, boats and what have you.

But seriously, i guess chilling on the beach all day, can also get boring.

Six Black Roses
08-26-2003, 12:01 PM
What would I do? Not what Jesus would do, that's what I'd do.

No charities, no making this world a better place bull. The problem is simply that in enough time, it will not matter.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER: What is written below is not to be taken seriously, for every 16-year-old has the right to joke (or not) as he pleases.

Considering they'd want half, I'd probably build up some controlled rage agaisnt the US government. I'd first scram from the country before they could get a nice tax shipment (and if I can't get the full 100 before that, I'd be even more upset). I'd either look to join some big criminals, or I'd start to finance something.

I'd probably get multiple hits against people who I personally think are leeches in this world. This very well includes, but is not limited to, certain politicians.

Most definately, I'd work with multiple contract killers to randomly kill ugly people. Yes, those ugly people who complain and then do nothing to fix it. Above all else, I'd make sure to hunt down as many ugly computer geeks who are horny when they're not programming or doing CG or reading jokes on how horrible Microsoft is.

Did I mention that I would actually literally (no joke) kill every person who pays to get women? They're all ugly. And I don't like ugly people who pay for sexual favors.

If I'd feel a bit extra me, I might have even carried out some focused terror acts against people who aren't so very innocent. This ranges from civilians who do nothing but please themselves, to FBI agents who kill innocent people, to presidents who speak like chimps.

Then with the few million left, I'd live life on the run. If all else fails, I'll publically commit suicide, only to make one message...

"You couldn't stop me. But death did. No matter where you are, no matter what mask you wear... the shadow in the black hooded robe will find you. And then you will know... know the invulnerable breath which blows at our lives like a desert storm at sand. You live now, you die tomorrow. And a day after that, you never have existed. What is our purpose? Do we ultimately procreate just to keep the species going, this species that consists only of beings who prioritize procreation above everything else? I've come to my end, and this is where I came from. Rest in peace... rest in peace."

Screw opening my own studio. I'll take classes (screw a degree, don't care crap about English 101), improve my artistic skills, and create what I want, with no deadlines. Vacation whenever I feel like it.

*** grins ***

Now, this is odd... for some reason you think I'm ugly now. *** giggles ***

But it's not a phase, I assure you. I just hate it when people who couldn't get the better-looking women in the first place resort to bribing them with money. And that of course says that they value only the sex. And guys who (most especially the ugly ones) pay for sex just need to die.

Yeah, it might not be their faults. I mean, not everybody is born to lure girls or women. But so what? Paying for sex is quite the low form of life that I want to get rid of. And I want to get rid of all the ugly people who cry, "The media is making us the bad people and is telling the world what is beautiful." God, if you can't suck it up and do something about it, stop complaining. Yes, I think, being able to blame the media might make some of you feel better about yourselves... but... to flat out cry and do nothing and then pay for sex?

*** sigh ***

Besides, most people who can't get girls (or at least the models) can at least try to enhance their appearance. But paying for sex? Ugly bastards need to die.

Well if i won a 100 million dollars on lottery, i would still finish school eventhough i am a senior in college. I would probably get a private tutor on my 3D skills because i think it would help you more to concentrate one on one plus you get more out of it. You ask what you want, and you model what you want and the tutor is there to show you everything you need.


I would buy a house that will have a giant office for my animation needs.

The rest? I would probably put some in an investment so it can grow over time, and what is left over i will take a vacation around the world. Also go to all the biggest 3D events there is and Higher the best artists for private lessons...hehe.

Invest in real estate.

100 million minus taxes = about 50 million.

Investing in income property in some parts of the USA will reap about 10 percent a year (after expenses).

10% of 50 million is 5 million.

5 million a year, for the rest of my life. 5 million / 12 months = 416,666 per month.

I'd have a hard time figuring out how to spend the money at that point. Then its starting foundations for research and philanthropic endeavors.

I hate myself.

Swastika? Is that the nazi sign thing?

Now... I don't hate people just 'cause they're imperfect. I hate the imperfect people who pay for sex. But I mostly despise the male population, seeing that nearly all are still driven by primal urges and think of only sex during their free time. Besides... ugly men shouldn't be caught with beautiful women after paying them. It's just... wrong. For the attractive men, it's a bit different--it's just that those men don't have to pay for it, so it's certainly not as degrading to him even if all he wants is sex.

Hm... Since we now have the money to execute "revenge tactics", I have always wanted to seek out Rolland Emmerich, toss a little beating on him, and take my $10 back for having paid to see Godzilla. I know the money won't matter, but I am a man of principle.

Then I'd pay Seth McFarlane to make at LEAST 3 more seasons.

Ooh, I missed this one. I'd do that too.

That also reminds me to add "Crush Nickelodeon into the dirt and get someone else to air all of the Invader Zim episodes" to my list. :twisted:

Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeboooooooottttttt I need YOU!!!!

They started to make new episodes for cartoon network, and then cancled it just when it was getting good. Corperate Bastards, the only reason it didnt do good is because they put it in a bad time slot.

If I had that much money hmmmm

1. Refine alternate fuel -- for travel only
2. Get rid of guns and balistic weapons
3. Destroy all forms of government
4. Establish complete anarchy
5. Destroy modern comforts
6. Populate the world with genetically modified animals (monsters)
7. Make up a strange story with lots of plot twists explaining why things are the way they are.
7. Enjoy my real life RPG Game

woot the perfect life :)

1. 20mil to ride in a soyuz and get a few days in space and annoy tall the real astro/cosmonauts
2. 10mil to debunk the GRAVITON!
3. 60mil to produce a low budget neuromancer or count zero feature film.(not a b movie version, i mean a good one!)
4. 10mil to keep me going till i get another job

this assumes taxes had already been payed

well, i am torn between 2 diferents things to do with 100mil.

option 1: an entourage of vegas showgirls that surrounds me and gives me a flashy entrance to any room i enter.

picture it. you would not just 'walk into a coffeeshop'. no... you would be ushered through a tunnel of feathers that part for you at just the right moment.

i think 30 people should cover it.

option 2:wherever i go, about 30 steps behind me would be my own personal flamenco quartet. i love flamenco, incredibly tasteful in any situation, and can only be mastered by precious few. (try it sometime, its a bitch just to sound half-assed)

i would have my own flamenco theme song.. maybe tom waits will be commissioned to write it. either him or the guys from soul coughing

4. 10mil to keep me going till i get another job

you wouldnt need to find another job. 10million at 4% bond would yield about $400,000 annual payout.

enough to buy a house and have 150,000 spending cash EVERY YEAR!

im the kind of guy that goes to the grocery store and then eats everthing as soon as i get home, i could never be consevative with that much free money! id know i would be broke in one year even if i had 100bil :)

$100,000,000
Well first off I'd take the lump sum ($33.5 million)
Then I'd buy a high end 3d prog (maybe xsi - have to try it first) and a really good computer and reder farm.
Sit on the rest living out my days working at my job but not really needing to and investing ($33 million makes a lot of interest [12 years * 10% = $103 million])

Oh, most likely give some to family friends etc...
