What Would You Do If You Won Five Million Dollars?

Lunchtime Poll: You Win Five Million But the World Is Going to End

Heathers is one of those movies that I'll always watch when it's randomly on TV. Just classic. It made a cameo on my screen just the other day and I had to bring one of their famous lunchtime polls to you. So, in the words of Heather and Veronica: You win five million dollars from Publishers Sweepstakes, but on the same day what's his face gives you the check, aliens land on earth and say they're going to blow up the world in two days. What would you do?

I'd buy a fantastic (translated: magnanimous) house and throw a huge party.Barring that, I'd take my kids out for a great day at Good Times or something, and make sure my entire family had rooms on the top floors of one of the best hotels in the city (or in the next major city). Maybe catch some theater....?If I still felt like it after that, I'd start/join a rebellion and see if I could help do something about it.

Something Else - I'd charter a plane, and take all my family and friends to some exotic beach in some exotic land. We'd sip cocktails and get a tan without a worry that the world is about to come to an end!

I would put up any homeless person I can find in a 5 star hotel and then leave for a wonderful, fully expensed vacation with my most treasured loved ones and friends.

I would start spending it on pure entertainment. After all, what's the point in investing it or spending it on lasting items if the world is supposed to end?But I wouldn't spend more than half of it, since there's a chance the world might still be there.

I would buy a bunker in Albania. By the beach if possible. The government there built them in case there are Aliens or bad Westerners invading.

if the check cleared, i'd take my family to somewhere close (less flying time) and just enjoy the last few days together. maybe in the woods or something? maybe we'd be saved if we were secluded.

why can't i do all of the above? invest just incase we make it through, give some away to help others and get a new look and clothes to take on my trip around the world (or to the safest place where the Aliens haven't been yet) with my family and friends. its $5M thats a lot of money! I love Heathers. It is a classic!
