I'm not going to lie, I'd buy a freaking elephant. I'm seriously not joking. Why not? I'd also buy a ton of land for it to fondle and play--know what? I'll buy a herd of elephants. I wouldn't want my elephant to get lonely. It also has to be an asian elephant, and not those lame african elephants. Asian elephants are cuter. I'd give them a soccer ball and watch them kick it around, roll in mud, and hold each others tail. I'd also ride them. I'd be too lazy to teach them any tricks. So they'll make do with a couple of "go. stop. stay. down", no circus crap. I'd also give them canvases and let them paint portraits and pictures. Elephants are artistic, you know?

FOUND?

I would turn in into authorities as soon as possible, more then likely it's a setup and/or dirty money. Now, if you said, "What would you do if you found 300 million dollars worth of (insert precious mineral/gem)" now we're talking hypothetical funds!

But paper money? Too easily tracked.


reality aside, I'd keep 1m and spend the rest on the needy, NOT donate to funds that take half of the donation but actively spend it on the needy myself. Maybe travel undeveloped areas that are asking for help and throw some money around, get my name on a few buildings.. 299 million could go a long way :o

Buy a Subi STi 5door hatch back.. I wanted the hatch but I ended up with an '07! Damn it!

SPREAD THE LOVE

It'd really depend on the circumstances of finding it. If I just found a wallet with a credit loaded with 300 million, I'd return it to the owner, which I could almost guarantee he would reward the person who returned it to him.

Say if the dude just gave me it, no catch, I'd pay off all my college expenses instantly, get a new car (Probably a Fiat 500) and try to find a small house somewhere near the campus I live at. I'd just let it sit, collecting interest for a while until I got a team together to start my own mobile game studio, and work from there. I'd make sure that whoever female I'm married to is living comfortably and happily, and make sure my kids wont have to worry about having their college paid for.

I'd be able to get any anime I wanted after that, so no worries in that department lol.

Have to agree with dyme420. 300 million is probably drug money temporarily misplaced. I'd leave it alone and get as far away from the drop zone as humanly possible. Same deal for gems or opiates in a bag: those that had the means and "creativity" to acquire this fortune can channel same efforts to track you down and give you the eternity you desire (likely in the form of an excruciating death).

If this was a world of make believe and the money was OK I'd have to figure out how to expatriate myself from the US of A in a way to prevent the IRS from confiscating 90% of those assets and emigrate somewhere more econ-friendly to income. The US of A is morphing into a soft tyranny so this sure isn't the place to be wealthy if you, the individual, wish freedom of choice re how to distribute your wealth constructively and on your own terms.

One of the most obvious dupes on this entire site. Hell, there's more than 3 of these.

Invest, help a few schools, patients in hospitals, churches, shelters, really run down neighborhoods. I'd help those who truly need it and appreciate my efforts in helping them.

I'd sell them and buy myself a car.

Disneyworld would fetch more than 300 million at auction. So would the McDonalds corporate structure. Why not buy a political Senate seat in the US White House instead and go from there trying to create your empire?
