    if you won LOADS of cash in a lottery? What would you buy? I think that this topic was discussed a few months/years ago here, but now? Just a spontaneous thought? withouth thinking too long? I woul buy:
    - DSLR (but not the top one... just something like 350d... yeah it's enough)
    - a couple of lens (nice ones :p)
    - a home, one here in Szczecin, second in NZ :)
    - a car (maybe BMW but dunno which one exactly)
    - and I'll share something with orphanage or other institution like this which provides help for the poor...
    - and I'll spend some cash on trips and journeys....

    yeah.. I like daydreaming... :p

    I remember that thread, I made it. :mrgreen:

    Jumping in before a mod moves this thread.


    I'd build myself a house over in Aus I think. Popping over there for a few months a year.
    Another house down in Cornwall.
    A few cars which I've had in my head for a while. Such as a Cobra 427. Also a Golf and a Skyline which I'd mod...
    Lots of music and the best system I can put together.
    I'd share some of the wealth with those close to me.

    Oh, and I'd bugger off and never be seen again. ;)

    Pay my mum back her part of what shes paying for my 350D which I'm gonna work off.

    Buy some clothes, CDs, new computer. Err buy myself a new bed.

    Then save some to spend on whatever gonig out etc and then invest or try some business ventures. Maybe give some to a charity but probably not as it actually usually does nothing.

    And buy a house ni Paris and go there whne i wanted and go to all the countires I want to on hioliday and fly first class.

    I'd give a generous portion to any organization that needs it, particularly non-profit art organizations;

    I'd buy an island in a tropical area that has no hurricanes and build a nice, simple house;

    I'd travel the world, meeting each one of you. :D

    I'd buy my dream house in my city and also in another city and decorate it until it was juuuust right and how I wanted it. It'd have a huuge aquarium in it, and a rainforest like garden (with a water feature too! hehehe)
    I'd build a big studio for Adrian and me. One end would be for sound and the other end for visual stuff, just like our initials... AV... hehehe. :mrgreen:

    Then I'd go travelling to egypt, south america, antarctica, norway, iceland, and around australia of course.

    I'd buy a nice car, nothing flashy, but nice.... like a mercedes convertible sports car. :lol:

    I'd buy all the Su Doku in the world and do them all!!! Mwa hahaha! I think i'm addicted. :blushing:

    oh yeah... give money to charity and all that for tax deductions. hehehe.

    I'd hire a cook and a cleaner too,,, but then I'd probably fire them after a week - coz those things are what i do when I need stress releif!

    I'm sure I'll think of more things.
