House and hangar next to a private airport, all-weather IFR-equipped plane (I always admired the C337) plus a small aerobatic plane for fun. Near a golf course. Not in the Snow Belt.

* Travel to every major city in the world
* Obtain about 100K in local currency
* Walk around the city, and at random intervals throw 1K up into the air (A-la "Cash Confetti" from Yakuza)
* Record the results
* Tabulate all of the results for each city into a nice spreadsheet
* Do absolutely nothing with them

Drugs, sex, and Disneyland

Everything here except heavy drugs (maybe some X) and Disneyland (too old)
Step 4: Start to Fund My Business Properly
Step 5: Take care of the Family Members who still talk to me/in my good graces
Step 6: Get a House/Home/Condo
Step 7: Invest the Rest

I mean, with 8 Billion, unless the Fiat Money Market totally collapses, you really don't need to work anymore. But I like to stay busy, so I will continue to do what I do with my start-up biz, and fund it appropriately.

I'd spend a few thousand probably and then set aside enough that I could live comfortable forever more without having to have a job and then give the rest away frequently over the course of many years to many different causes.

Buy a house so I don't have to live in a crumbling rented shack.
Buy a recent car so I don't have to worry about the engine falling into the driveway every time I start the car.
Get eye surgery.
Get a broken wisdom tooth removed.
Buy houses and cars for people who have helped me in life, or pay off their debts if they're already otherwise doing well.
Build an estate somewhere on the periphery of nowhere (don't want to have to drive 90 miles to get groceries).
Give the house I had previously bought, to somebody else.
Invest, invest, invest.
Increase my arsenal.

Seriously this.

8 Billion is far more than I could spend in some thousand lifetimes. Give me 5 million, I'm set.

The rest would go towards charities and assisting the less fortunate.

Ya'll are so short sighted. Seeing the world and living lavishly is what you do with something like 8 million dollars. 8 billion is enough to become a national level influencer in whatever field you want to become a part of.

Hmm. 99% of that has to go to improving the world. What's priority 1, climate change or world hunger? I'd have to discuss with charity organizations to figure that out.

The remaining 1% could be spend on hobbies.

I've heard she's the guard to the PotD discord.

Anyways, I'd make sure my family's well off. You know, buy them houses, cars and give them at least a million bucks each (probably more). Then I'd move cause I wouldn't want people asking me for hand outs. Then who knows what I'd do.

First I would buy some land out in the middle of nowhere. I would build a super secure, self sustaining bunker and stock it with the best foods, all the video games, tons of TV shows/moves etc, enough to last for 50 years +.

I would then search the world for about 5 really awesome people whose company I enjoy.

I would move us all into the bunker.

I would live there most of the time, only traveling out occasionally. I would also stock it with many weapons, tons of computers (generators and solar panels etc).

If the world goes to crap i'm set. I would pay people to restock/ship us any new video games and systems that come out, and I would set up my own internet as well (probably satilite) so I could keep abreast of new PC games through steam (and play online if I like).
