    Inherited a fortune. Now what?

    We all know those Nigerian scam emails. Well, lets just say one of them is not a scam, and you receive it, and you do inherit a fortune from a person that has no relatives and has randomly picked you

    In what direction would your life go from that point?
    Have a question?

    - Pay my debts.
    - Buy a 'certified' second hand car to replace the one I have now.
    - Buy a 'reasonable' home at a decent price.
    - Invest the rest.

    ... then life goes on as normal - minus taxes.

    Second best is perfect because there's still that goal to reach for...and less stress because people can't say "Hrmm...THIS is the best?!?".

    Cocaine and hookers. God, what a life!



    Seriously though, I already have plans for funds of that size as is. "Inheriting" it would simply mean I get to bypass meeting with venture capitalists.
