|2016 - Friday Five|
Via bronxelf_ag001 and tonyfox:
You have just won one million dollars.
1. Who do you call first?
vakkotaur, if he's not there, then my parents.
2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself?
A nice used Grumman or AGAC AA-5B Tiger. (For those of you who aren't airplane geeks, that's a nice, fast, simple 4-place light single.) Then I trade in my RX300 for a new RX330.
3. What is the first thing you buy for someone else?
A new car for Paul, if he wants one.
4. Do you give any away? If yes, to whom?
I'd offer to pay my sister's adoption expenses for her new son, or else set up a college fund for him. Charities can go back to the government, though, for more of the funding they already get.
5. Do you invest any? If so, how?
$1 million isn't a lot to invest these days, but I'd invest what was left over (I expect $500K or so). At least it'd be a start. I don't claim to know how to invest, though...that's what professionals are for.
