    BAM! You win the Tui catch! What do you spend the $100,000 on?

    I would pay off all my debts (sigh, student loan...), invest half of it and have a big party Oh, and buy a grand piano!

    Would save it to use on a house deposit, I guess. Maybe a bit of travel first.

    I'd be boring and use it to pay off my mortgage.

    I'd invest in in land, which I would harvest to grow fruits and vegetables. I would then sell those to the supermarket chains and make money. With that money I would open a grocery shop, which would eventually grow to a super market. I would then go national and have chains, after which I would offer other products like insurance, prescription drugs, opticians, credit card, etc. I would name my company Tisco. Eventually I would grow so big that everyone would become sick of me. And the next day I will wake up to find that all this was a dream.
