    (and playing nothing but the greatest hits of the 1980s over the station's Muzak system)

    I know I've mentioned this before, but years ago I saw a nature program on which a family of orangutans in Borneo ferried themselves across a crocodile-infested river using an abandoned canoe.

    If and when I am absurdly rich I shall found an international "Boats for Apes" program and make sure all apes have boats. We will move on to helicopters after that.

    In addition to what I said previously. I would buy a working Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, and a Black Mesa Gravity Gun.

    You are aware the SI once housed the largest garbage dump on the eastern seaboard, right?

    I would buy the parts for a time machine, go back in time, and take my money from myself again.

    I'd probably buy sanitation and fresh water supplies for the 2 billion or so people on the planet without access to it. Apparently this can be done for only a couple hundred billion or so.

    If I had any change left over, I'd buy a multiplex that would show free 80's Saturday Morning Cartoons on Saturday mornings.

    Souderwan,

    I think you might want to rephrase that statement. ;)

    Six Flags New Orleans. I'd rebuild and revamp it into something awesome.


    Either that or become a Scooby Doo villain and just use it as my hideout. :p
