What Would You Do With $10 Trillion? (WAN SHOW INSPIRED)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

So on the wan-show this week Linus discussed his plans if he was to have alls the moneys. 

So I thought why not make a thread about this! With infinite money I can finally buy a large popcorn and a large drink with some extra snacks at the movies xD

JK, but I would buy the world, throw out the bad stuff (to the sun) and keep the rest. Then I will instill a utopia and happy ending.

 

 

No, but realistically let's assume you have $10 Trillion.

I get the best computer, best car, best house, best stuff, a couple spare trillions, and donate the rest.

 

Be creative!

I would buy Apple, and EA then close them down.

 

After setting up Bioware to move forward under their own power, and out of EA's clutches.

Take me down to the console city where the games are blurry and the frames are thirty - Guns N' Roses

Arguing with religious people is like explaining to your mother that online games can't be paused...

Buy out Ubisoft and EA  then sell them to Valve for $1 each so they own all of the games and make them better (ea isnt to bad, but ubisoft sucks balls)

I'd sort out my debts, Get a couple of old cars, Build myself a house and other stuff that goes with that.

Then i'd set up two or three engineering companies. One focused on space travel (Possibly backing or buying space X)

One focused on prostetics. (Deus ex HR stuff)

And my own engine and driveline company.

I would then pay for a company to make me the following games:

Skate 4

CoD: modern warfare 2 (with better graphics, more free dlc, fix bugs etc)

just cause 3

a new guitar hero

 

Then i would buy myself a huge military cargo plane, fill it with food then drop the loads over poor countries

Spend all of them in as little time as possible, and thereby I will destroy the economy of several countries.

That's not nice.

buy EA and ubisoft and change their direction

 

and then start a "Gamer's/media Union"  + hire lobbyists to shape the industry

The Hennessy venom gt is far nicer IMO but still a very nice car

That is a NICE car.

 

Yeah, the whole Zonda line of cars is my favourite, with the C12 being my favourite out of the line.

 

 

The Hennessey Venom GT is far nicer IMO but still a very nice car

 

Yeah, I'm not a massive fan of the Venom GT, but I don't like the Veyron either.

I have my doubts about putting so much power as Hennessy did in a Lotus chassis actually. But it's definitely still an insane car.

I would do the obvious things - pay off any debts I have, pay off the debts of other people I know for them, give some as a gift to my closest friends (or just buy them something really expensive :P)

 

Then I'd build myself a modest house with enough space for everything I need. I'd want to build it in a place with a really nice view - perhaps overlooking a waterfall and install great soundproofing to keep it quiet inside. I'd pay for water and electricity to run off a hydroelectric dam in the waterfall, and fibre internet to be routed to the house, and I'd pay for a small runway so I can fly to places when I want. I'd get weekly shipments of food etc. delivered :)

 

As for other things, I'd put a lot of the money into science research. I'd put some money into quantum computing, some into particle physics, and a lot into experimental space flight.

 

Then I'd invest some money into education. God knows the UK definitely needs it.

 

If I had some left over I would use it to build a high tech city in Africa for developing areas. Give people jobs, places to stay and food. It would have a great transport network, healthcare and entertainment, as well as great network speeds.

 

If I had even more I'd consider building a city underwater or on the Moon. The rest I would donate to charities, schools, and then save a little aside for future children/grandchildren. By a little I guess that's a few million  :D
