Let's play a game "What if you're a billionaire?"

Or to make it even more fun, let's make it a "corrupted billionaire, a mogul of sort"? What would you do?
I saw a video of Donald Trump pretending to work in his own hotel and I guess so he knows how it is to run his own business better and maybe will teach him to have a sense of humility or whatever... This is like a reverse of that -- giving ghettos like me to be like Trump.
And once a billionaire, you get to buy air time and on line time to mouth off a bunch of stuffs whether they are truth or not but since you're a billionaire, what do you care?
So imagine you're a billionaire with the public at your disposal, you get to publish a weekly article giving Trump a piece of advice what would it be?

So I saw Sarah Palin giving Trump a lecture on cronies capitalism over the Carrier deal. I am not sure if she can see the Trump tower from her home but she has a point. But to be fair, I give him the benefit of the doubt. He needs to something to show for. The irony.

If you're a billionaire, that's something you can try. You can play that game too.

Move to a remote house on a beautiful hillside (Scotland or Iceland come to mind), never to be seen but in market and speeding along the country side.

Seems pretty modest for a billionaire. Not from what I've seen out there.

Buy an awesome house around Aspen, start a news network, and all it would do is agitate...literally a network that's just designed to trigger and inflame...for lulz...and like JJ said, two chicks at the same time.

I would build a road system just for myself so no one could ever change lanes in front of me again. Especially 1960 era busses!

Secretly buy up e46's to drive up the price so that teenagers can't afford them anymore to increase the average fanatic age in here.

So you'd just sit on your ass all day doing nothing?

You don't need a billion dollars to to that.

It's more like the E46s are being passed down from fathers to sons, lol. I doubt kids today even knows anything about the e46, let alone wanting to purchase it specifically when there's more updated budget models to choose from.

Set aside a large chunk of money to where I can live off the interest, say $5m per year.

Live somewhere rural on a large piece of land, but within 1hr of a large metro city.

Build a big fkin garage with lifts, full professional tools, the works.

Acquire BMWs new and old and work on them all fkin day.

"Give back to the community" Anyone that needs to use a lift, needs some tool they don't have or just wants to wrench indoors, in a heated garage, in peace and quiet - come on over.

I will find ways to invest in food and water production / distribution. Growing populations and climate change are showing projections for scarcity over the coming century(s). Those in the Southwest are already seeing the effects.
