Default A Billion Dollars

If you got 1 Billion dollars, all in cash, what would you do with it?

Your challenge in this thread is to think up stuff that would all lead up to cost exactly $1,000,000,000. (733,724,750 Euros, 628,806,989 Pounds, 1,016,905,863 CA$ (canadian dollar))

You can do it in different posts, but you can't go over 1 billion dollars. It's okay to go below but not above. First one to figure out what they're gonna do with a billion dollars get 5 yerfbucks from me. However, you could easily cheat, as you may have made a list before, or you could google "What to do with a Billion dollars".

Anyway, it must be OK'd by me before I give you the yerfbucks. So don't except an Immediate Yerfbuck transfer once you post "1 Billion [cost-a-penny thing]'s".

You must post at least 100 things so that you can't do something dumb like "I'd buy MySpace" (MySpace costs something around $1billion dollars, I just googled it)

So, start!

I'll start my list:

- 100 Copies of Minecraft, then I'd give them to People who sign up for a website I would quickly make with ads and stuff on an Official website maker, I'd pay the website host, so people would see my site, get google-search switched on. First 100 people to Sign up on it would get a copy of Minecraft. ~ $3,100

- 100 Pounds of Gummy Bears. I'd sort them by color and use super glue to put Gummy bears on the walls of my Room. ~ $1,000

- 1,100 Pounds of Nutella (Nutella's like melted chocolate in a Jar. And it's healthy for you, yet it takes like Expensive Chocolates melted) I would use the nutella on Bread, Graham Crackers, eat it with a spoon, etc. etc. ~ $8,500

- 100 Games on steam that are each about 20 dollars ~ $2,000

- 2 Wii Controllers, 3 PS3 controllers, XBox 360+Kinect and 4 XBox 360 controllers. ~ $850

~~~ $0,000,015,450

I think "invest" is too obvious; try to be more specific about investment plans.

When I say invest, I mean put it in a bank account and earn interest.

Thumbs down Pseudomumu

Even though Bonebro wrote "what would you do with it," I think he means "What would you spend it on," so investments might not count.

Anyways, I'm not trying to win any Yerfbucks here, but If I had a billion dollars, I would likely spend a lot of it on various Lego sets, and maybe buy Hamu-*shot*

I would buy lots of old cars and bikes that I like, and get a super powerful computer (Like, upwards of $50,000 worth).

This would still, like GC said, only amount to a small percentage of one billion.

Also, for the record, is it a thousand million (one billion) or a million million (also one billion)?

The amount of US debt is probably related to the two pointless wars you started back in 2001 and 2003.

Also HappyStickBeaver, stop renaming thing Pseudothread. It was funny to start with, but now it's not. And the thread is not pseudo, since pseudo means fake.

@Bonebro, yeah, I was reading the total US debt. My bad. But still, 15 trillion....

@Hyperme, First, either way, I don't care. Second, this thread's topic is false, because the billion dollars are hypothetical. Third, what you said is exactly the point of why I started this in the first place. Your argument is invalid.

Now that I'm thinking about it I could definitely create much more money using a capital of a billion. After reaching like 50 or 100 billion I'd throw it all in the market to make it collapse.

To be really annoying? It can't be the other thing, since you've been pseudoing every thread you've posted in for ages, including the BHE announcement topics, which contained infomation that certainly wasn't pseudo. And how can you have a Pseudothread? It doesn't make sense! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-

If it has the DNA of a duck, no matter how hard you argue, it's still a duck!

-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
