Pardon My Planet Comic strip:

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/fun/ineedhelp.asp?date=20081007

I saw this comic strip and wondered what investments would I put new found lottery money into?  (A problem I hope to have someday! LOL)  But seriously I don't know if I would trust Invesment Brokers to tell me the truth, I wouldn't put more than 100 grand in a bank.  I have heard that Gold is a safe good investment. But Real Estate might pose a good investment for when Real Estate prices go back up. What Investments would you make?  Would you play it safe or risk it in the stock market???   Just Curious...

    Amusing. I would play it safe, keeping all my eggs in many baskets, some small portion in stock for new potiential companies. Also in Real Estates if I can find a good location.

            I would definitely put my $$ in real estate and rent out properties.  I don't know of any other investment that can bring you thousands of dollars a month.

                Cool,  what type of paintings do you like?   The way gold is going I think that would be the Safest investment.   I would like some growth in my money so mabey I would invest in small buisnesses.  I also think you could make some good money in Real Estate.   Real Estate prices are down I read houses that were going for 300 grand in California are now going for 200 or less.  People are in a scramble for CASH but someone with some vision for the future could find some deals!   I would just like to find a  broker who would tell me the truth.   If I could trust the broker I would be willing to take some risks because the markets WILL bounce back.    It would be cool to be a Lottery winner that turned a Large jackpot into a HUGE fortune.   I think though once I did become a Billionaire I would probably give most away.   As long as I have my piece of LAND I don't really need Billions sitting in a bank.
