If a genie granted you a million dollars and he would allow you to use it as you please(as long as you played by his rules) how would you spend it?

His rules are simple:
-If you do not use up the million dollars within 24 hoursit will disappear.
-Anything you buy for yourself or for people you know personally(family, friends, coworkers, etc.) with value(gold, diamond, stock, house, currency, etc.) will become dust after 24 hours.

I would take my family on a wonderful vacation to anywhere in the world. Everything paid for, just blow it all off in one day.

I guess vacation because what else are you going to do with it eh?

$1,000,000 on a vacation though :eek:

I'd still have leftovers!

Two chicks at the same time. And I think if I were a millionaire I could hook that up too, cause chicks dig dudes with money

So nothing with value?

That leaves hookers, things you can snort, things you can eat or drink, and vacations.
You can definitely buy things with value(stock, gold,etc.) it would just become dust after 24 hours. LOL

Well if it's just going to disappear in 24 hours I would fly first class to NYC. Buy an apartment on the bottom floor of a building, and then go out and drink a whole lot (24 hours isn't enough time for a vacation), and then when my 24 hours is up watch the apartment crumble and the building collapse.

Vegas. Would be the greatest 24 hours of my life. Can you imagine all the crack/hookers a million bucks could buy?

I wonder why nobody propose to buy Android phones; they become dust after 24 hours ... :D

Ok, ... Bad joke ... Downvote myself


But then: it would buy quite some hours in a jet fighter flying around ... Or a space flight ...

Wait so you cannot buy anything of value? In that case, I would pay off student loans, house, then drop it on a vacation. None of the items I paid off or for should turn to dust, right?

That's silly, I'll never win $1m.

Since anything I buy wouldn't last and 24 hours isn't really long enough for a vacation. I don't think I would do anything. Just spend the day with my family.

How about this...

Spend it all buying products from a company I own. It seems this would successfully launder the money.

Unless you are suggesting that everyone I purchase goods and services from are going to be sorely surprised the next morning when all of that cash disappears from their coffers. In which case I probably shouldn't spend it lest I get police banging down my door with a warrant for my arrest.

Fly myself and a few friends to Vegas, first class.

Get a Penthouse at the Caesars, hit the sports book for a few hours, have dinner at Savoy's, then hit the clubs until the morning.

I don't understand this, and you aren't the first to say it in this thread.

While it might not be an extended "vacation", a million bucks would allow for a nice 24 hour getaway on a private jet to a Caribbean island, Vegas, or wherever you wanted.

I want a simple life.

I'd just use it sparingly as a cushion and maybe for a half decent place. As much as I'd love to help others, people are very greedy and money does strange things to people so I probably wouldn't reveal that I ever had money.

Edit: Oops, just saw the rules.

I'd be paying off my student loans. >.>
