Forget money, if I had the ability to get on a plane and travel anywhere at any time I would take that for sure. It's half the fun trying to make a living somewhere and experiencing the place with the real people than just having all the money in the world to live the high life or whatever.

I agree. Money just makes some things too easy and that's when it's not so fun anymore. I've never wanted to be rich... but I never want to be so hard-up that I can't afford to go out for meals and take one or two holidays a year etc. I voted for Traveling the world anyway :)

Not having to worry about money to live is one thing, too much money another. Having enough money so you don't HAVE to work yet enjoy decent holidays each year, get children through college whatever would be very nice. The amount offered in the poll gets into the second bracket. You'd never know if new friends were after you or the money. Old friends would probably be envious and resentful even if they tried not to show it. You would probably do things which they could never afford to do on their own, offering to pay for them to join you is one solution but in my experience (not that I have money I hasten to add) is that people naturally want to pay their own way. A lot also depends on if you are single or attached/have a family. I could imagine travelling around the world would be nice when single. With family it becomes a lot more problematic (schooling etc). So I guess if you have a family the main choices would be a private performance of a celebrity or the money. Guess I'd take the money.

if you train your kids right, you might be able to trade them for the traveling around the world one. it might take a bit to get them trained properly but it will be worth it in the end.

I would do the worldwide sporting event. Forget the superbowl, olumpics, yada yada. I would like to be able to travel with a Formula 1 team for a whole year. Now that would be awesome. And the WRC would come in a close second :wink:

But then again, the money does look quite attractive.

ps. As for the ladies, I'm proud to say that South Africa has the most beautiful women in the world. :D

What would you do once you have accomplished everything you would ever want to do for all time?

In your avatar, why is santa wearing a gas mask, a suspicious looking glove, with a blue orb with a spider, suspended in mid-air?
