    I'd likely invest the greater portion of it. Albeit a standard savings might not be the best option for a greater portion. There are investments that can yield high dividends, while still being relatively safe in an investment portfolio.

    That said, a portion of it, I would apply to getting myself out of debt, incurred while I was in school (getting rid of loan/interest payments would definitely help), as well as taking care of some other things that have been having to wait until I get a job. With less then $55,000 debt currently (mostly financial aid loans), the actual spending portion would not exceed $100k at most...

    I would buy myself a brand new Chevy Silverado 4x4 extended cab. Then give it a nice lift,mudders,dual exhaust,brush guard,roll bar and alot of other things.

    My most important thing would get my damn dad to get to f-ing australia to get cured of cancer. He is so afraid of flying he won't go there to have the best chance of being cured. They found a guy that went there that had the same cancer as him and they gave him some sort of shot and it cured him. I guess it was on 20/20 once also.

    He said the only way he will go if Angus from AC/DC personally brings him there. Thats most likely not gonna happen but I wish it would :(. If I had enough money I would somehow get my dad over there.

    I also would like to help him and his soon to be wife and her kids since he can't work and she can't find a job plus she really can't since my dad couldn't handle her 3 kids the way he is alone and all that.

    At midnight you are watching the premier?
    Anyways, absolutely agree, 24 is definately the best action/drama there is.
    Hmmmm, maybe i'll do a poll on thursday about favorite tv shows in a category. What do you guys think of that?

    You need to post a new thread. Only moderators can edit the poll's.

    If you're going to post new threads though, maybe the date should be put into the title rather than just "Weekly Poll" ... else it could get confusing :)
