Thinking about it, $50,000 seems like a lot, but in reality, is it?

If you were given $50,000, how would you spend it?

I would give the money to SCS so that they can make a World of Trucks simulator, (ETS2+ATS) a big mmo game.

It's true that if we must give $50 000, it's a lot of money, but if we receive $50 000, it's not a lot !
But I don't know how spend it ;)
I don't want to dream more so bye LOL x)

Meh, maybe I'd buy a cheap second-hand car, but I guess I'd just save the rest.

If I wanted to, I could blow all that money up in one day, but I don't really see the point in that. $50.000 isn't that much money either (I wish I had it though! :P).

A couple of thousand dolla gaming rig, a very nice second-hand car, PS4 and Xbox One + many many games, possibly an apartment. Yeah you can do a lot with $50,000 in Bulgaria :P

I'd store it, put it in a bank somewhere and just let it grow with interest, yeh I'd not get a lot each year but it'd still be enough. When I'm earning it'd help out with things like houses and vehicles in the long run.

Still, in the UK 50,000 USD = 31,039.80 GBP.

Natwest I know does 1% interest per month (on my account anyway)

After 1 year at 1%/month (12% a year):
= £34,764.58
2 years:
= £38,936.33

Bottom line, I'd also bank it and spend it when needed. As a student sponging off my mom at present, it'd be very useful! I have great financial willpower not to touch much of it too :D

Ebola has a vaccine that has worked, your money should be more useful fighting cancer right now.

I would tithe 10% of it then pay off a significant amount of school debt. Maybe buy a steering wheel and a sick gaming computer!
