Title: One Billion Dollars
Post by: TeamRAD on March 26, 2008, 01:27:33 PM

How's the Round Table going to spend it?

For starters...I'm going to...

1) ...purchase a condo in the State St. District of Madison.
2) ...try to coax Madisonian, Ben Weasel, into reuniting Screeching Weasel for one-night at the Annex.
3) ...contact Mike Nelson's people in an attempt to bring Mike, Kevin, and Bill for RiffTrax Live at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Madison.
4) ...forge the foundation of my own comic book publishing company and vegetarian/vegan diner where all the profits will go to the National Foundation for Abused and Neglected Children.
5) ...buy a battle tank...

6) ...pick up a bucket of cookies from Trader Joe's.

...and that would be my gameplan for Wednesday afternoon until the Badger game on Friday evening.

1. Invest in toilet paper...
2. Smack Tom Cruise in the face
3. Pee in every country in the world
4. Find Bin Ladin and kick him in the groin with my infidel foot, and then say, "God bless America"
5. Buy a first edition of Lord of the Rings

I'd give a million dollars to everyone I work with.
I'd stuff a million dollars in a randomly picked mailbox.
I'd get my jeep fixed and professionally repainted with little fire flames by the rear wheels.
I'd get a wee bit drunk.

Well, if I had a billion dollars...

...I'd buy you a house. Yes, I'd buy you a house.
...Then I'd buy you furniture for your house. Maybe a nice Cheterfield or an Ottoman.
...I'd build a treefort in your yard. (You can help, if you want. It wouldn't be that hard.)
...I'd put like a little tiny fridge in there somewhere. Then maybe I'd paint the tree to look like a giant sponge and tell folks that the tree's actually the world's largest above ground coral reef.
... I'd buy a fur coat. But not a real fur coat. That's cruel.
... I'd buy an exotic pet. Like a llama. Or an emu.
... I'd buy a nice, reliant car (Maybe a K-Car) so that I wouldn't have to walk to the store. In fact, I'd probably just take a limo everywhere.
... I'd no longer have to eat Mac & Cheese. But I probably would. You see, I've been all around the world and in my travels, I've discovered that the one issue that truly divides us isn't religion. It isn't politics. It's whether noodles covered in cheese sauce is called Mac & Cheese or Cheese & Mac. Well, except for Canadians, who bizarrely call it Kraft Dinner, but that's why they're regarded as the international equivalent of the kids who aren't allowed to use the real scissors. And with that money, I will unite the world behind me and everyone will just call it "Elbow Macaroni Pasta in a Reconstituted Cheddar Becarmel Sauce." Thank you! (Vote for me in November!)
... I'd buy a green dress. But not a real green dress. That's cruel.
... I'd buy some art. Like an Elmore. Or a Crow.
... I'd buy everyone a monkey. 'cause haven't you always wanted a monkey?

In short, I'd just be rich.

3. Buy rights to remake the entire Star Wars prequel trilogy
4. Donate a big chunk to rifftrax(50 million dollars) so I can be a guest riffer on a movie of my choice.
5. Invest in stocks, bonds and use the resulting trillions to buy out Nintendo so I can release all their games and platforms

I'd probably invest in a bunch of property.

And then buy some controlling interests in a few small companies.

Oh and set up an second persona which I would then use to get all the way to the Top of the Church of $cientology and start screwing with them from the inside.

Ultimately with a Bil I'd probably end up doing a sort of The Magic Christian type thing

1) i would buy a large amount of land in the pacific northwest and have my dream house built on it with a large private theater in it.

2) i would make said land and house as self sufficient and off the grid as possible for said zombie apocalypse.  including my own hydroponically grown food.  with sheep to cut the grass, cause they amuse me.

3) i would invite you all to live there when the apocalypse happens.  as long as you do your fair share of work and don't cause any problems, anyone is welcome to live there.

4) i would buy a loft for anais and i in downtown london.

5) i would travel around the world, taking a piss on every corner.

6) i would own every movie, mst3k and rifftrax out there.

7) i would own a hell of a lot of graphic novels, if not all of them.

8 ) i might buy an island in the French Caribbean or somewhere.

9) there will be lots and lots of animals, especially dogs to take care of the sheep.

10) i would donate a lot of money to help cure cancer as my one non-selfish act.

11) i might have to be a copy cat and get one of those tanks too just for kicks

That too.

Seriously though, Hughes' chaotic reign over RKO in the 40s and 50s is a great story and produced some really odd films.  It also gave us Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell... Perhaps the epitome of male and female sexuality in those decades.

I will consider it, but if I am to expand too much I will have to open more farms/butchery's so that the quality of in-n-out will still be better than any other fast food place. So if you open a butchery and a farm that grows everything, I will open a bunch of in-n-outs in your area.

But in turn you will have to send me some of those bunny maceroni stuff  ;D

Well Fortis, I wanted to buyout In-N-Out specifically for their french-fry recipe, and then replicate it at my diner. I'm not sure if I would've shut them down altogether if I would've taken them over. I could've offered Dr. Who a position to run them for me. But to no end, you beat me to it. :)

So yeah, I can't open up a butchery, but I will still send over some Bunny Pasta along with some Macaroni and Cheese Pizza...

In no particular order...

1.  Buy a medium sized house on a large somewhat isolated piece of wooded property with a good finished basement that can be converted into a true home theater and a game room.  If my current roommates want to stick together, I'll go for a larger house, or another house on the same property connected by a common foundation/basement.  (Already thought about stuff like that from hypothetical conversations of our lotto pool)

2.  Tell every manager at my current job exactly what anatomical regions they can smooch.

3.  Study broadcasting and sound design at the best college I can get into, in preparation for starting my own recording studio, which I would use to try and launch a voice acting career while recording professional sounding fan-riffs and providing jobs for as many of my friends in the area as I can.

4.  If needed, find a better oncologist for my Mother (she just went through surgery to remove a malignant tumor and thankfully from the sound of it she's already beaten this thing) if she doesn't need that, I'll settle for buying her a new condo or house like she's been wanting.

5.  Start the World Random Charity Organization, which collects money to give to a randomly selected person below the poverty line every year.

6.  Invest in Legend Films  ;)

7.  Help my sister launch her own photography studio.

8.  Buy a new Harley for my Dad.

9.  Re-enact the Joker Parade scene from the 1989 Batman...without the attempted murder of course.

10.  See every single Ring of Honor wrestling event live for an entire year.

Post by: bettertomorrowamy on March 29, 2008, 06:11:43 PM
Micheal Bay's rise to power hinged on this:

The first Got Milk? ad, in October 1993, featured a hapless history buff (played by Sean Whalen) who receives a call to answer a radio station's $10,000 trivia question, "Who shot Alexander Hamilton in that famous duel?" The man's apartment is shown to be a private museum to the duel, packed with artifacts. He answers question correctly, but because his mouth is full of peanut butter and he has no milk to wash it down, his answer is unintelligible. The ad, directed by Hollywood director Michael Bay, was at the top of the advertising industry's award circuit in 1994. In 2002, the ad was named one of the ten best commercials of all time by a USA Today poll, and was run again nationwide that same year. It has since been featured in numerous books on advertising and is being used in case studies at top-flight programs around the country.

I've always said there would be things I'd do if I had a lot of money all of a sudden (after paying off my debts, of course):

1.  Donate $1-$5Million to Judevine Center for Autism in St. Louis, MO (they helped my oldest son who's now in college become functional when he was 4)
2.  Donate $1-$5Million to the local Safe Home for Women who helped me a lot when I needed it
3.  Donate $1-$5Million to the local university for a theatre and cultural arts center and invest in scholarships for autistic and other disabled students
4.  Buy a lot of Class-3 weapons that I've always wanted
5.  Buy a lot of WWII-era vehicles that I've always wanted
6.  Take my family to UK & Europe to tour WWI & WWII sites
7.  Take my family across America to tour Civil War sites (the few remaining ones, sadly, as many cities are building over them)
8.  Set up trusts for my kids and their future families
9.  Invest
10.  Relax and try to enjoy myself without fretting for one day about how to pay a bill before going back to work

The bad thing is, you really couldn't ever spend a billion dollars without becoming either (1) overcrowded with crap you don't need or (2) finding yourself constantly wanting more and ending up in deeper debt.

I'm sure I could think of more if I really tried -- but those are the ones I've always said I'd do.

Well if that's the case, sooner or later I was going to invest in it for fun hence the formation of my dwarfed-minion army much like the Tall Man had in Phantasm. Unless BTA has a quadruple barrel shotgun at his disposal, I should be pretty safe. For an added bonus, I'm sure they would be fun to play disc golf with too.

my happiness has died from being slapped...Happy Slapped

Quote
Happy slapping is a fad in which an unsuspecting victim is attacked while an accomplice records the assault (commonly with a camera phone or a smartphone). The name can refer to many types of violent assaults, not just slapping, but some rape and sexual assaults have been wrongly classified as "happy slapping" by the media. Within the United Kingdom, where the term is used most frequently, it is associated with the ned/chav sub-culture. Happy slapping filming attacks seem to be common in modern bullying, and not unique to happy slapping. The core defining feature of happy slapping is an effort by the attacker to make the assault seem like a comical surprise at the victims expense. When the "happy slapping" craze first started it was seen amongst youngsters as harmless fun, but as times have progressed some happy slappers have indulged in extreme violence, and several such incidents have had fatal outcomes.
Often those found performing such activities will say they were just "happy slapping", asserting their belief that no significant harm was caused to the victim (often contradicting the obvious) with the only result being humorous entertainment.

- start up a very large foundation for the foster children of Wisconsin (I was one and would want to give back as much as possible to assist in what can amount to a very tough fight.)
- setup a meeting with Anchor Bay in hopes of getting a release of Yor, the Hunter From the Future on DVD.
- and at last, I'm heading to San Diego, immediately, to surf and grab some In-N-Out french fries.

In addition to what I would do in this thread, I would also make sure DocWho has a high-speed internet connection. I'll toss in a case of jalapeno cheddar Cheetos as well.

I'd fund a massive, worldwide gene therapy/eugenics program - for spiders! My goal would be to replace every creepy, deadly spider in the world with a spider that was as cute and harmless as a cockapoo within five years.

Maybe they're all furry, and purr when you pet them, and can sing like a toddler in a bubble bath.

My life woud become a vacation.  I'd travel from place to place and then return home for a while just to pace myself for the next trip.
