What would you do if you had Zuck's

tobr24u(z6 RI)May 18, 2012

billions? I noticed that his demeanor has changed as he is courted and fawned over and he looks like the cat that swallowed the canary. So far his charity has only amounted to a paltry sum to the Newark school system. Perhaps he could do a little more for his fellow man after he buys a private island and a jet. But, and be honest, tell us what you would do...

I have no need to think about.

I don't waste time thinking about other people's money, what they should do with it, and what I would do with it if I had it.

After all, it is the root of all evil!

No, money isn't the root of all evil - love of money is.

I'd pay off that Visa bill.

I'd send it to Washington to help reduce the deficit.

I'd uh buy maps..."because, uh, some, uh. . . people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over HERE in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our children."

Thank you, Miss uh South Carolina Teen USA. LOL!

Zucky's went out of business years ago. Now the deli is a bank, but for some misguided architectural reason, the building has been preserved even though it's not much of an example of anything, including the Googie style.

If I had tens of millions to throw around, I'd like to perform a social experiment.

I'd give a bunch of poor people some seed money capable of changing their lives - $100,000 each.

Then I'd track and publish their progress to show how they spent, invested or wasted the money.

I'd give the one that possessed/made the most money after 5 years 10 Million dollars.

I'd make a movie about this social experiment as well. All profits would go to education scholarships.

I LOVE your idea, Markjames.

Unfortunately, many poor people don't know how to manage money and given large amounts that they could live on for the rest of their lives, blow it.

For example, those sad and down on their luck people that win the lottery.

Just as well someone has it that knows how to make it grow and use it to help others in a constructive way.

That means more jobs and more taxes for the next cycle.

Ink, say what you really mean.

I don't waste time thinking about it; I do waste time reading articles and watching news segments of how some people blow money.

As to speculating what someone should or does do with what is their own money--nope. Don't care.

Blow it, save it, invest it, give it away, live well, live frugally--not my business.

Not yours, either.

If I had Zuck's money, I wouldn't really blow it all on hats; I'd run for president and buy a really decent staff.
