MDS question
« on: May 22, 2006, 12:07:21 AM »
You know the thought never really occured to me, but has anyone ever noticed that Bob has never asked the contestants on the MDS specials what they would do with a million dollars?

Also what would you guys do with the million dollars?

I know the first thing is I would definetely pay off my bills for school.  Then maybe I might move out of my parents house and put the rest of the money in the bank for daily and future uses.
Now you can buy groceries by the case at www.meijer.com and Remember "The power of the price compels you!"

I think I'd buy my mom and dad some stuff they wanted, then I'd pay for college and get some stuff for myself, and then I think I'd donate the rest to charity.  I can't think of what I'd do with $1 million.  :-D

Pay off the taxes first.
Buy my dad a new car.
Pay off my college.
Pay off my credit cards.
Put some money away.
Buy some designer clothes.
Buy a new TV.
That's about it offhand.

I would buy me a motorhome. Travel around the U.S I don't like to fly at all. It would also come in use if I wanted to stay a extra day, after special olymics is over.

Buy a t.v save the rest for a rainy day.

Move out of California faster than you can say "California, burn in..."

You get the idea.

Pay off every bill I've ever owed, then find a good financial advisor. Nothing beats good investing.

Don't have any debts, so.....

I'd buy ranch, raise bucking bulls, and haul them to PBR events.

Of course this is after I go fly to see The Price is Right! :)

Buy newer/more expensive computer, TV, iPod, clothes, etc.  

Not worry about getting a job for a year or two right out of college.  Maybe travel, probably not.

Give some to charity.

Take what's left (probably close to a half-million at this point) and save/invest it.
