He's officially the world's richest man with $275 billion to spend. It's difficult to imagine what that much money looks like, especially to someone like me who hangs on to his Christmas decorations every year! No wonder he wants to blow some of it getting to the Moon or wherever.

What would you buy if you had $275 billion burning a hole in your pocket?

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

I'd be a right wing Soros.

its difficult to imagine that much money in any context - I have often said that if I was independently wealthy (which I am not unless next weeks lottery numbers come up) I would spend my time ( however many years I have left) at major sporting events around the world

Great plan, but wouldn't make much of a dent in $1 billion let alone 275 of 'em.

Your probably right but one thing is for sure I wouldn't be flying economy & I wouldn't be in the cheap seats at the stadium & the hotel would be pretty damn good, lol

Itís estimated he makes 1086.00 dollars a second so when he goes to the bar his round is pretty well covered. Unless everyone is on Peroni.

Surely all of us would plough a few $billion into CPFC, so we can say "yah, boo sucks" to the "big six" plus Newcastle. Except:

1) the rules on PL club funding would no doubt conveniently be changed just in time to prevent us from doing so; and
2) CPFC would still manage to spend the money unwisely!

I would buy the house next door to any woke celebrity that annoyed me e.g. Lilly Allen or Emma Thompson or people like Diane Abbott et al.

Money no object I am sure I could get the neighbour to sell. Then I would offer it to the government as an Asylum Seekers hostel / travellers site or for the homeless.

Let's see how the woke react to having those people they claim to care for live next door to them.

On a more serious note if I had that money I would commission a massive house building / regeneration plan for the UK renting the homes out at a proper affordable rent. I would also chuck money at medical research.

I would keep about £20m for myself for travel and the like.

Yeah, the power of Musk!

Did make me chuckle.

Oh and yeah, a billion or two of those hundreds of billions to Parish to build us a world class stadium and buy a prima donna or four.
