    Assume you had as much money as you could possibly need/want. how would you spend it? would you choose the over the top life stlye or a more serene and laid back life style? would you prefer a family or be on your own doing whatever?

    Personally i'd probably choose a very exuberant style, expensive cars showy house, latest fasion, newest tech, all the while spoiling family.

    Living off the wilderness sounds cool. I don' think it would cost much though, to be honest. The reason I don't go out and do that is risk of death, really.

    Explore the world :) There's so much that this world has to offer. So many natural beauties, cultures, languages, food, histories, etc. etc. As long as there's no chance of me getting kidnapped or taken hostage, I'm good. lol I always hear about how traveling the world is truly a life changing experience.

    I don't know how to vote. I would buy myself an island and set it up to be off the grid and live pretty much a solitary life.

    But, first I would travel the world for quite a while and blow some money on really stupid stuff.

    Does that mean you'd cease human interaction at some point?

    I'd live a laid back comfortable life with the occasional "rock star" event.

    I have very little interest in exploring the world, as I live in a wealthy, comfortable country. Call me stupid but I doubt I'd go to Asia even if it was free.

    I would buy apps. Probably one for sharing lists and contacts and stuff, maybe one for sharing music and playlist, and probably a security guide app.

    Seriously though I wish it were multiple choice. I think I would do some of each of those things.

    I would probably have the laid back lifestyle. I am not really interested in luxury. Though I do love tech. I will have a nice house, with all the high tech gadgets I could get my hands on.

    I really don't like travelling but my GF does so we would travel to different places once a year.

    She also like the luxurious stuff so I would mostly spend things on her and our kid, if we decide to do the invitro any time soon.

    I must be one of the few oddballs that really hate money. I have no problem making it or spending it, but it's a real pain in the wallet. I'm already laid back and relatively comfortable, so i guess I'll just keep going until i finish this Maritini ... and then maybe i'll have another.

    More than likely. Except for what I do through the Internet.

    I could see myself as the old hermit that has a person that drops stuff off ever couple months on his island dock, but is never seen.

    First thing I would do is pay off my parents mortgage/debts. Then I would donate money to local charities. And finally I would buy my family a nice big house and the nice cars i've always dreamed about owning and live a comfortable life and explore the beautiful country I live in and do lots of camping.

    A combination of "Explore the world" + "donate to charities".
    This would give me the most satisfaction from my life. :)

    I'm extremely comfortable with the current lifestyle I have. I have zero interest in living like a rock star. I would buy a decent sized plot of land, build a sturdy home on it and invest the rest for my children's future.

    I'd buy Motorola and ensure they never put out another locked bootloader.

    Everything except the first choice and wilderness. I could seclude myself, but not in the wilderness.

    The family would be the family I have now. No new children, have 2 already. And be single.

    I would travel my ass off.

    I've never understood why people want the luxury lifestyle. I know a lot of people do, but it has no appeal to me at all. I wouldn't change anything about my current lifestyle. I know this because I already live below my means as it is. I don't see why that would change just because my means would change.

    A luxurious lifestyle may make a good vacation. May not be that great for a lifetime.
