    Picked "spend it", but I would spend it on reducing my home loan principal.

    I have about £5k debt to clear, so $20k would clear that and leave me with around £5k to spend on pc and hifi upgrades :)

    12 month CD. Maybe even the stock market. Now that it is at a new low, it eventually has to go back up :p
