What would you do with... (in Contests)

th00p March 18 2007 10:41 AM EDT

$1,000,000,000 CB?

Yes, that's a billion.

1/50000th of that to the person whose response I feel is the best.

Keep it PG, funny or serious, I don't care. Just make it good!

QBRanger March 18 2007 10:42 AM EDT

Buy world peace!

ResistanZ2 [The Knighthood] March 18 2007 10:50 AM EDT

I'd have a Super Sweet Sixteen (even though I'm turning 18). :D

Relic March 18 2007 10:55 AM EDT

Hmmm, tough one, but with that cash, a pair of stretchy pants and some rubber hose I could become Nacho Libre!

th00p, can I borrow some sweats?

Sometimes I like to dress up in fancy, stretchy clothes and look at myself in the mirror, just for fun. =)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] March 18 2007 11:07 AM EDT

Post regularly, and at great length, about how much $CB ($1,000,000,000! Can you believe it? I'm nothing short of amazing! It's really too bad you are both wretched and uncreative, compared to me.) I have.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] March 18 2007 11:08 AM EDT

Maybe I'd consider selling out...

Xenko March 18 2007 11:13 AM EDT

I would make the largest named arrow CB has ever seen, and couple it with the largest named bow, and borrow the most powerful tank in the game, and equip it with a pair of huge BG's, and get archery 1.0...

And then I would see what sort of damage I could do!

AdminNightStrike March 18 2007 11:13 AM EDT

Cornzilla +19 $1,313,939,623

I think if I combined that billion with my current liquid cash, I might be close to being able to do it........

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 18 2007 11:39 AM EDT

i would buy you all a cookie

DiabloSpawn March 18 2007 1:55 PM EDT

Convert is to real world $, chuck it into a bank account and let it grow

Nerevas March 18 2007 2:00 PM EDT

I'd put it all into an ELB, start my very own flavor of the month ToA archer, and trump all other ToA archers with my awesomeness!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 18 2007 2:12 PM EDT

recreate Kronos and give it to Jayuu

QBJohnnywas March 18 2007 2:17 PM EDT

I would buy a tandem bicycle for CB. And, when people here argue I would put the two different sides of the argument on the tandem and make them cycle around. And around. And around. Not to sort out the argument you understand, but simply to make them cycle.

And then CB could vote on who cycles at the front and who cycles at the back. And you can bet, if I get to cycle at the front, I'm eating a curry beforehand......

Fantasysage March 18 2007 2:42 PM EDT

I would use it to start my own political party on CB2 and overthrow Jon in a violent coup de eta, then i would put in my own regime and tax all your battles so i could make money for the greatest character ever. No-one would ever rule again but me!


smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] March 18 2007 2:44 PM EDT

invest, and give most of it to friends/family, cuz lets face it, youd never spend that much money, ever...

Nerevas March 18 2007 3:10 PM EDT

I seriously thought upon opening this contest the first line was going to be "all that junk, all that junk inside your trunk"

Lord Bob March 18 2007 3:35 PM EDT

1.) Trade up my ToE for a great big Rune of Solitude. My strategy needs it desperately.

2.) Buy a Morgul Hammer. Duh.

3.) Buy Elven Boots. You can never have too much DX in my opinion.

4.) Buy corns for all three of my enchanters.

5.) Upgrade the crap out of all my equipment, especially the weapons. I'd upgrade them until my weapon PR allowance runs out.

6.) Beat Carnage Blender. *stupid smirk*

Tyriel [123456789] March 18 2007 3:44 PM EDT

I would spent a few million on equipment.

Then I'd give the other ~$990 million away in completely random contests.

Somewhat like this one, actually.

QBOddBird March 18 2007 4:35 PM EDT

I'd put 50 million into each piece of my Wall armor, aside from the CMLs -
I'd put 200 million into my EBs, to make up for those DX penalties -
I'd put 230 million into my BoNE and an ELBow, respectively.

I'd then build a nice big single minion heavy tank killing machine with my NCB, of course. The pinnacle of tankety-tank tank. =P

And I would name my CMLs "Pants for a Bootydancer" and put them on my Safety Deposit Box character, and name him "Captain Bootypants".

Bok [brimstone killers] March 18 2007 5:20 PM EDT

I'd make the biggest set of leather armor in the whole CB world

[Where Shirt]Freekie [Lower My Fees] March 18 2007 5:25 PM EDT

Id make a continuous contest that slowly sent that full 1Billion to all the players on CB so they could at least say they were rich for one day... Really hard to do but ive got 1 billion dollars... id find a way :)

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] March 18 2007 5:35 PM EDT

i would make an uber char and the rest i sell to PM and buy a house on earth

Thraklight Resonance March 18 2007 5:50 PM EDT

I would bribe Jonathan with the first $250 million to let Monty come back and then loan Monty the remaining $750 million at 5% weekly interest, proving once again that a fool and his money are soon parted.

TBH never enough gabber March 18 2007 5:51 PM EDT

i would deliberately mess up with forging so the forge dwarf could be rich enough to buy himself a mail order bride

Trashcan March 18 2007 6:02 PM EDT

I would make me a 1 billion NW Halberd. Who needs the big 5 when you have a 1 billion nw weapon!

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] March 18 2007 6:07 PM EDT

Agh, i didn't see the CBD part, rofl. I wouldn't have the slightest clue what to do with it. Probably just BS my wall armor to 450 AC and then the rest into my stat upping equipment (Corn, AGs, HoE, etc.) then the rest into my MH and ELB (5/8 MH, 3/8 ELB). Keep around 40 mil for buying NCB BA.....

RedWolf March 18 2007 6:44 PM EDT

Obviously, I'd donate it all to Trivia. Either one big prize, or divide it between the games, its up to you :-P

QBBarzooMonkey March 18 2007 8:16 PM EDT

I'd slowly convert half of it to USD, and then use that to bribe Jonathan to program me a pony. And maybe some pants for the rest of you.

The other half would go into +20 Beleg's, +20 Helm's, just to see what they do, and of course a contest fund that would last a good long time....

GO PATS March 18 2007 8:24 PM EDT

I would buy every RoE in the game and just keep them all and rub them all over myself, after I went running or exercising... Then eventually I would sell them off, one by one, and see how many people would actually wear something that was that ingrained with my funk. Oh, also, I would name all these RoE's to the same thing... "Moosh's Whacky EXP Time Forever Tattoo of Goodness"... also I would name them twice, so if anyone had one, it would be a waste of money to rename it to something else, for at least a year, as you can only store two years of names.

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] March 18 2007 8:26 PM EDT

I would like to put it all into forging a dagger.And maybe a bit for the forge dwarf so he can go into treatment for the steroids . That much cranky ain't natural !

ResistanZ2 [The Knighthood] March 18 2007 8:54 PM EDT

Solomon Grundy want pants too!

(CB1)logan666 [Jago] March 18 2007 10:25 PM EDT

I would spend about half upping my armor and weapons. The other half would be given out in some easy contests.

Trashcan March 18 2007 11:27 PM EDT

Scratch my halberd Idea, I would slowly change it into USD, then bribe Jon with it to bring back tourneys!

Popsicle Man Supreme March 19 2007 1:47 AM EDT

i'd buy jonathon and make him feed me grapes and have him sway palm leaves so i get a nice breeze on my face. Then with the 999 million remaining i would buy a dagger

noneedforthese March 19 2007 2:19 AM EDT

150 million in to DBs,
50 million into wall gear,
800 million in to SoD,
create a 4 minion TEEW team,

x100,000 SoD + xplosives anyone?

th00p March 19 2007 7:27 PM EDT

I would pay someone $999,980,000 to bump this thread.

And use the other 20k as a prize!

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 19 2007 7:56 PM EDT

after i bought you all a cookie, i would go for milk

th00p March 19 2007 10:36 PM EDT

th00p (th00pie) Johnnywas (Bank Of Johnny) $200000 10:35 PM EDT

There's his 1/5000th of a billion, because his answer was the funniest, most ingenious, off-topic thing I've ever heard of. Plus, I've always wanted a bicycle.

Unappreciated Misnomer March 19 2007 10:38 PM EDT

i would buy all the RoE's and re ink them

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] March 20 2007 9:19 AM EDT

i would almost have as much nw as freed ;)

PoisoN March 20 2007 9:35 AM EDT

Well I'd like to wear the most expensive cloak of CB2.

th00p March 20 2007 3:14 PM EDT

Hmm, surprising that no one noticed my 'mistake' yet.

Popsicle Man Supreme March 20 2007 3:16 PM EDT

he was supposed to get 20000 not 200k

th00p March 20 2007 3:18 PM EDT

Thanks for noticing! Also, I had to give someone the correct prize, so here you go!

th00p [t] (th00pie) Spawn of Duck Knee [t] (Apoc) $20000 3:17 PM EDT

QBJohnnywas March 22 2007 4:10 AM EDT

Johnnywas (Bank Of Johnny) th00p [t] (th00pie) $180000 -- mistake refund! 4:08 AM EDT

I only just noticed my bank char actually had some money in it!!!!! I'll settle for 20k though! Run another contest with the rest!

Thanks!!! I'm off to buy a wheel! ;)
