I would also try and help the homeless of my country Panama...And i will pour millions into helping people that have inventions....Just the same way colleges have college grants, inventions will have invention's grants...And i will try and encourage kids/people with inventions (stuff that can make the world easier or will have big impact on other people...).....Same thing will go for people that have innovatives ideas theoretically in the areas (also research in the respective areas) of physics, mathematics, computer science, Algorithms, number theory, lotto configuration, etc...

I would also pour money into bio-chemistry and I will pour money into research of this area of biochemistry (lots of money into it) and i will offer rewards to students that know how to solve old questions in the biochemistry field....I think i will offer grants and scholarships for this field (but only in developing countries)....And i will also have the website set up...

The changing light bulbs will be the last project of them all....

    I would also pour money into research to find the cure for blindness....I would offer a high rewards for those who find the cure for all sorts of blindness illnesses...Because no one should have to suffer from this disease...I think i would offer scholarships and grants (i will set aside money for it) to those who want to study the disease (you will have to sign an agreement)....I would set aside money for those people that suffer the disease so they can be on a sort of disability and if i can offer them disability, i'll offer them like grants...I will also have the website set up for this....

      Interesting.... Well..with that kind of money, you can buy any material object you can think of.  'Things' alone can not satisfy you for long... you'd get bored of any car, home or anything else you can imagine in a short time after the novelty wears off.

      Here's what I propose...  INVENTION, CREATIVITY and INGENUITY..

        I would hire the brightest minds in all fields, aquire all the resources I would need and start creating new innovative inventions to improve the quality of everyones lives. Basically jump start the invention revolution.

        That includes cars that DON'T run on gasoline,better means of transportation, controlling the damaging effects thats destroying our environment with greenhouse gases and find cures for diseases..just to name a few. I believe there is too much polital red tape and corruption that stops alot of progress that can be made. I would stop that corruption should it ever interfere with any progress I can ever make. It's not about money, it's about future generations that will live in the wake of our greed and carelessness in everything we do today.

       I would find more joy in helping others than just being greedy and keeping it all for myself. After helping someone in need, it will always make you happy. Even giving a few dollars to someone in need has the same effect as giving away millions to a charity. It's our human nature and heart to help one another..well..most people anyways.

          I would also pour money into bribing governments into making the second language in their countries to be English, Spanish,....Specially i would talk to African countries into making their primary or secondary language be English, or Spanish (maybe French) (and no more than that) ....I would form a panel of Linguist, people that write the dictionaries, and related experts in related subjects into changing or making the words of their respective language and dictionary be more related to Spanish, or English (maybe French)...

          I would create all sorts of free websites on each country encouraging people to speak 1 language or the 3 most popular ones..I would load the websites with games & exercises that help people improve their language skills and help them learn or improve English or Spanish...I think i will offer games where people win money for knowing English/Spanish/French words (maybe i may not do it)..

          We will try to make people learn to speak a Universal language or the 2/3 most universal languages....

          I would also talk and lobby internet service provides and legislations involving the internet that will make the internet more accessible to the rest of the world...Not only internet service providers but people that build computers, because not everyone in the world has access to a computer...I may open a TON of huge internet cafe in every country...To promote the use of the internet and make people have access to the internet and the whole world be connected....All this with the goal in mind to make the Internet Grow....

              I'd probably renew my subscription to "People" magazine. It's just gotten too darn expensive lately.

                Pumpi, I hope you win 10 billion dollars so I can come to you with a scientific study that needs funding.

                Doesn't have to make any sense, just needs about $ 20 million dollars to get the project off the ground. Sounds like ( IF I am interpreting your posts right) you will be an easy mark  err..... you will be game for dam near anything that makes absolutely no sense at all.

                Perhaps my study will be why a gallon of milk costs more than a gallon of gas, but the flatulence created to supply the milk produces more gas than refineries can handle...

                Anyway, that sounds like a worthwhile waste  err....use of about $20 million or so, agree ???

                 

                I will give you this, you have a very vivid imagination.....

                    Well, there ya go....that's what I'm talkin bout !

                    Maybe someone we know can spend 10 billion finding out why...

                     and solving other mysteries like why we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway...

                    Or why sour cream has an expiration date

                    Or why it's called rush hour when no one moves...

                    Or if the light really goes out in the refrigerator when we close the door- I really don't know, we eat all the witnesses....

                      DoubleDown, I never heard that one!  LOL

                       

                      I was once reading why the English language is so difficult to learn and one example was

                      terror + ific = terrific

                      horror + ific = horrific

                      2 entirely different meanings, right? 

                      An old rule we learned in school is:  I, before E, except after E or when pronounced as A as in neighbor and weigh.

                      Maybe this is why I once campaigned to get this "rule" out of our grammar books!

                      What about "seize the day?"  or "he's a little weird?"  or "I'm taking a leisure trip."  Then there's that "after c" baloney.  "I hired a secretary who is very efficient."

                      So how can something with so many exceptions be a rule in the first place?

                       

                      So now ya know I'd have so much time on my hands if I had $10 billion, I could spend my life thinking about all of the things that don't make sense in this world.

                            I would also create a version of "American Idol" but of "Exceptionally Beautiful Women"...previously i said that i would do it for beautiful women with exceptional bodies...But this one is for "exceptionally beautiful women", women that make up, .01% of the population...And previously i said that i would give this women 75K to 125K, but this exceptionally beautiful women would get if they are winners, 1 or 2 million dollars....In my entire life i've only seen 4 exceptionally beautiful women (one of them i just saw her on clothing/perfume billboard)...All through my eyes...They will have to have acceptable body ratings: (most women qualify in acceptable body ratings) I would not want a malnourished women like models or a Double Mack looking women for this competition)...

                            I would also set a website, that it will be known to have little fact in sentences or a three-sentence paragraph...Just the same way the book of Psalms or Proverbs is olny about songs & advices, this website will be about facts...And i might pay people .05 cents for submitting facts....

                            And i would put my resources into creating a machine that does the same job a vibrator does, but that it will shift gears (i think the world would be a better place that way) (men may not become absolete but i think it might 50%/50% stop/prevent/reduce abortinos ad slow down overpopulation)....(and pardon me for the talk and i think we are all adults here), and i would do my best so that it's marketed at a very low, low, very low price (those machies right now cost from 300$ to 700$)...If i had more than 10Billions i would have done my best so that the price of the morning-after pill be so CHEAP i mean really cheap...I will also create a sperm/ovum bank where beautiful/exceptionally beautiful women can donate (they will be paid for it accordingly with their consent), (with the goal that people that want beautiful girls can have them (they say beauty can be genetically transfered from parent to daughter)....
