    I would by a shop and build things to sell to the military to begin the initial investment which will eventually lead in my taking over the entire world.

    thus far, i only have 10k saved for it, 80 would be nice

    Yeah, and the military is so desperate for contractors that they would rather buy equipment from your little shop than - oh, I don't know - General Dynamics and Boeing.

    $50,000 goes to not working for a year,
    $5,000 goes to building an AWESOMETM computer,
    $3,000 goes to a used economical car,
    $22,000 goes to investing in the stock market as I watch Mad Money every day for HAWT TIPSTM

    Freedom isn't free, there's a hefty fuckin' fee.

    If you don't put in your buck-o-five, who will?

    Freedom costs a buck-o-five.

    Damn, I've got to go listen to that song now.

    I'd Stash it in a bank or invest. I could get a loan for an apartment with the money, but then I wouldn't have a job paying enough to pay on the loan, so I'd really just have to save it for later when I can afford to spend it. Anything I'd buy would basicly cost more to own than I make. I'd get through my education with some of the money at least.

    With about 100K I would either pay off the mortgage or sell, buy a house and get a bigger mortgage. Although the bottom has fallen out of the housing market in many parts of Sydney, this is not really the case where I would like to continue to live, in the Eastern Suburbs (Bondi/Bronte/Clovelly Beach and near the city).

    I would take the money to Poland, and be able to live off it like a king for the rest of my life there.

    Pay off my student loans..

    And then I'd book a one-way ticket to a country far away, and tell everyone I know to eat sh*t.

    In Zagreb. Well, it depends on the area, but in most neighbourhoods that don't suck real estate prices are outrageous, often exceeding €2500 per m^2. On the other hand, in undeveloped war-ravaged places like my hometown $80,000 would buy you a house so huge it would take you two days to walk around it.
