    Don't need a million dollars to have two women. In Bangkok, you just can get that for under $400.

    I'm pretty sure there are men on "the list" that we can both agree to. Now, getting one of them to show up for a threesome would likely take some money.

    How does one get on this list? Is there an application process?

    (I'm just curious, is all.)

    The list is my arbitrary choices in men and women. No application necessary.

    Yeah, and the travel expenses... ;)
    So yeah, not a million dollars.
    I wonder what the rates are for that at the Bunny Ranch in AZ...or those places in Amsterdam or Germany.
    What are the totals including travel, expenses, rates, tips, etc...
    in locations where you do not get thrown into the joint. (or at least noted as a "sexual predator")

    BTW...While I'm in my world domination mode.

    I think I'll buy a football team and move them as an expansion team to Oklahoma City.
    The Thunder has done well there in basketball.
    The OK population lives football...and now has the population to support it.

    I think the best one to absorb would be the Jacksonville Jaguars.
    And I'm sure the underlings would love a new owner...the current one is a doozy.
    Second pick may be the Raiders...but I love them in Oakland.

    Buy the dallas cowgirls, then attempt to move them out of Dallas, even out of Texas. The shit would hit the fan, and I'd pay good money to see it happen.

    Offer to pay them $15 an hour and they would probably jump at it.
    I've been reading about how crap the cheerleaders get paid.

    Is the Bunny Ranch in AZ? I thought it was NV.

    You are correct, I'm wrong.
    I believe NV altogether allows brothels, but Vegas & Reno it is illegal. (again, I could be wrong)
    Damn, now I'm going to have to change tiks. ;)

    I disrespectfully refer to the NFL team & organization as the dallas cowgirls.

    If someone attempted to move the cowgirls out of Texas, the uproar would be intense....
    and very entertaining.

    You'd be surprised—or not, really—at just how much retrofitting gets done in those vehicles. Mostly with the stereos—totally jacked with bluetooth integration, etc., they've become an essential status symbol for their owners. Retrofitting is probably the biggest factor to keeping the cars running. Having an operating vehicle with original parts is another huge status symbol, but most are in decent/working order by virtue of secondhand Japanese motors and self-fabricated parts. But yeah, cupholders are definitely a thing.

    Back on topic: I'd spring for a Mini Countryman, a car I've been ogling for a few years now. Standard shift, moon roof, some sort of legit integration with my phone where I can play music off of it, and heated seats are the only features I actually give a shit about, beyond the choice of model. Countrymen may be shitty/unrealiable/whatever, but I like them and I want one.

    Oh, and built-in bookshelves for the guest bedroom/office. I guess I don't need tens of millions of dollars for them—or the car, really—but whatever.

    Hmm.
    Pay off the house.
    Hire the shop I work at to finish some metalwork at my house and carpenters to fix some fences and landscapers to clean and fix up the yard.
    Hire more construction ppl to raise the roof on one part of the house and turn it into a 2nd garage.
    Invest in the place I work so they can expand and I can have a spot to play there.

    Buy a get around car while my beloved vw truck gets whatever I want made better.
    Buy a fiat x/19 and strip it bare of wire and mechanicals and rebuild it with a Dallara bodywork and electric power, or stuff everything I can in it from an Mitsubishi MR2 .

    After that buy an old Subaru Sambar and build a Hayabusa engine into it.

    Hire a personal trainer and get some guidance with workouts 3x a week and a person to coordinate with the trainer to cook for me on those days.

    Play. Just follow my nose and play at whatever hobby or projects I feel like.

    Collect more sculpture by a few folks I like.

    Be more free to socialize for fun and the goal of finding a partner, i.e. make room for more serendipitous relationship opertunitys. I only need one to fly right.

    Do something with with someone philanthropic. I don't know what.

    I feel like I have the bones of what I want. I would like to flesh them out faster.

    Probably buy my cousin a house and give her a trust fund thing.

    I would buy a small house in Nuremberg and ship whatever fun car project there I have going and spend a week driving the Nuremberg ring on hobby days they have once a year.

    If it was only 1 million, less of all that would happen.
    If it was unlimited funds all of that would happen but no idea where some of it would go. Particularly with my boss's business, we are doing really well and I would like it to go better. Probably hire some of the best of previous co workers to expand.

    I would also make sure another old boss was set up however he wants. He's also more or less where he wants to be but I'd like him to be free of any financial constraints to do whatever he wants.

    Build a trust fund to finance an international secret society to squash magical thinking and promote science, logic and accelerate the decline of religions globally. Except maybe for Vulcanism. Similar to how many Buddhists have spiritual beliefs but do not believe in a deity.
    Agressivley fund relentless trolling and exposing of sick corrupt entities that claim religion as motive for their megalomaniacal ways.

    Ironically try to crush the idea that having wealth makes you a better human.

    Make it legal to counter hunt human beings who hunt wildlife for sport.

    Maybe have a plastic surgeon build me Spock ears.

    Try more varieties of weed and have zenon gas parties, keep some zenon gas on hand for when I want it.

    Pay off the house, set up money for real estate taxes for next ten or eleven years. Quit work, not retire, just quit, wait it out until I can retire.

    Or, pay off the house, buy an RV and travel the states.

    I've been pondering this very topic lately.
    What's the difference to you, in saying you would quit but not yet retire?

    I'm not yet retirement age. If I go to full retirement, I still have 8 years or so. I've put in enough time to retire where I am, but, can't live on what I'd get in return. The million would allow me to just walk away and still be able to live comfortably until SS kicks in. :)

    So, to-may-to, to-mah-to.
