I would become the landlord of a large inn that I maybe have to have built. I would rent out rooms to sexy females and there would be a large open air bath located in the center of the building. And on top of that buy my dream car and all the little things that would make me happy.

For me to consider myself rich it'd have to be at least 500 million..I can't run thru that. I'd probably buy 3 McDonald's because those never go out of business...and start bringing in more money.

I'd buy stuff wholesale and set up several Ebay and Amazon stores, of all differnt varieties and markets. Teenage, adults, books, video games. And I'd only deal with top quality and build a top notch reputation for myself.

Since I'm rich I'll probably do more volunteer work..I don't really believe in donating money to a charity if you can donate physical labor. The human touch and presence is more than money any day. But if I see a need in one I'm working in, of course I'll donate. But most likely I'll have my own charity organizations and will use my money to pay people who are handling the administrative part of it. Gotta be realistic

And to keep my mind sharp and my life fullfilled, I will pursue my passion of writing, and perhaps sell excellent quality craft and products on Etsy.

So pretty much make sure that I'm sensible and have several back up plans for my money by not having all of it invested in one place, do my part in the world, and still have personal satisfaction from working.

Rather than a large random influx of money (which is proven to create unstable spending habits) I'd rather have a job that pays 150k+ a year.

Aside from that, a nice 3 or 4 bedroom house, convert one of the rooms to a home gym, keep my computer up to date with most of the best hardware each year, outfit my kitchen with all the gear I need (at the quality level I want) and after that so long as I could pay my bills and buy the best quality food in large quantities it doesn't really matter.

I'm already rich, I have a good family and friends that care about me. I enjoy my job and live comfortably without any real worries or problems, but that's not the question you're asking...

I'll answer the second question first, how much money would it take to be considered rich?
Well, it's easy to just put a really large number down, but I'll take a more thoughtful approach... I'd say you're considered rich if you can comfortably live off the interest your money generates. The median annual US household income is about $50k, which is just about middle class, but lets bump it up and say it takes $75k a year to live comfortably.
Now lets say your investment portfolio earns about 3% annually. (FYI, the Dow Jones Industrial Average grew about 7% from 2011 - 2012, so a 3% growth rate is actually very conservative). Let's throw in some tax and make it 15% for investment gains, 15% of 75k is 11250, so $11,250 + $75,000 = $86,250. You would need $2.875 million or ~$3million to get $75k minus tax from an investment that earns 3%. So that's what I'd need to feel "rich": $3 million. Not much is it? Gives you a new appreciation of how much "a few million" really is, and makes you wonder what all those multimillionaires and billionaires are doing with all that money...

Now what I would do with that money, probably nothing much, help out some friends that hurting financially, maybe get some nicer stuff, go on a nice vacation, give more than usual to charity, help out some of the more destitute in the local area... In all honesty, I'd probably have more fun trying to get that money than whatever I'd be doing after I have it...

Billions to sink into research in both robotics, genetics, and other biology related fields to turn myself into an android cause it'd be fun. then buy/create a large island in the middle of the ocean and create a second switzerland (neutral country) where scientists the whole world over would gather to make giant advancements.....so you see i have very simple dreams.

1 - pay off the house, turn it into our dream home inside and out

2 - pay off my bike, buy 2 more (ninja 650, zx6r)

3 - buy an abarth, tesla, wrx & lamborghini (haven't decided on a murcielago, reventon, or the sesto elemento)

4 - buy whichever car(s) my girlfriend wanted

5 - get the best medical care available for my mom

6 - buy a house for my mom along with a boat or even a plane... whatever it would take for her to finally be able to travel like she's always wanted to

7 - pay off my girlfriend's parents' house & vehicles

8 - help out various family members

9 - set aside plenty of money for retirement

*not necessarily in that order, mind you...
