What would your visionary future be if money is no case?

Thoughts?

P.S.: Of course, you have enough time and health.

In what capacity exactly? Political? Economic? Philosophical? Technological?

I assume this is personal, not the usual socialist masturbation ...

I have enough to be comfortable, but not extravagant.  Like I am now.  I can see my future, as dying a few years from now, but at least I will be near my daughter, since she will probably survive me.

Socialist masturbation ... Magrathea.  Personal planets.  But I will build Earth 2 without Scandanavia, since I don't want Greta in it ;-)

Money is just how we keep score. There will always be an equivalent and it will always affect our status.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

A small vineyard, a nice little Spanish villa house with the two loves of my life and an infinite supply of top-tier marijuana, my own mechanic shop for high-end cars and travelling wherever we want and whenever we want. My own fashion line would be dope too.

Probably take a late 60s Chevelle SS, a 77' Trans Am and an Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale as well. That list is missing a few cars that I'm just blanking on right now though.

I would completely restore my house which is a 1910 Victorian.  I would also have a nice house in Hollywood, Florida where I would go any time I want and hang out with my long distance BF.  I would fund my son's education as high as he would like to take it.  I would still be a nurse but work per-diem, in my same position where I work now.  I would give generously to charities for Veterans, homeless people and animals.  I would travel a lot both in the US and overseas.  I would be in some sort of choral group.

I hope you get that, some day.

I hope you get that too.  I once lived in a partially restored 1910 Victorian.  That is were we lived when my daughter was born.  Not so nice neighborhood.

Realistically?  A beachhouse and a dog.  I'd be happy with that.

But if I had (practically) unlimited resources to work with?  I'd bankroll vaccine research and intentionally wipe out a ton of disease.  I would utterly exterminate malaria for sure.  In particular, I'd see anopheles gambiae lit up with crosses.

I would buy and destroy as much medical and student debt as I possibly could.

I would fund public works projects to overhaul US infrastructure - roads, bridges, energy, telecom/internet, etc.  I would make South Korea's average connection speed look like North Korea's average connection speed.

I would buy and set aside land for nature preserves and animal sanctuaries, particularly marshland.

I would champion Ad Luna, an expedition to establish a permanent colony on the moon.

And finally, I would fund Project Hydra: cutting-edge regenerative medical research (treatments to repair and restore damaged tissues/organs) with the ultimate goal of developing technologies to restore human patients that have suffered severe and otherwise permanent harm - severe burns, lacerations, amputation, paralysis, organ failure, etc.  I want disfiguring and/or debilitating injuries to go the way of the iron lung.

Oooh, and a pony.  I've always wanted a pony.

I'm not the person to give large sums of money because I wouldn't appreciate it or know how to use it responsibly. My vision of the future is to maintain my current lifestyle until I die. I'm kind of like a hobbit.

Put your investment money in hair removal, hobbits have hairy feet ;-)

Beware of getting what you want ... it might be hard when you lose it ...
