Ask yourself. What would you do with your life if money was no object?

Pack a bag and start walking and try to get as much out of life as I could. Then when I find a place that I like then I'll do what I said I would do in the winning the lottery thread. The walkabout would take a very long time though so i doubt I would ever get the chance to settle.

Probably just learn as much as I could, history, math, etc. Just consume knowledge with my eye mouths and suck it in with my ear lips and chew it up with my mind teeth.

I'd be the only mule in a hammock on a beach in Tahitti

Hmmm, so actually 2 out of the 3 here prove that money is a necessary element in society to keep ppl ambitious, to accomplish things.

I find it odd how some simply say "travel" or "lay on the beach all day every day". What about purpose? If i have to believe you guys, ppl would completely loose a sense of purpose if money would not be an issue. That's pretty sad.

What would ppl do with their lives? Sure I'd also would take more vacations, but what else??? What would you become? A painter? A scientist? A philosopher? A CEO? Or just a non-ambitious tourist for the rest of your life?

Not ambitious, I work a lot for the money I need. To feed myself, to clothe myself, etc. If I didn't need to work, I could use that free time to learn. To answer your question, I'd become a scholar, retain knowledge, maybe rewrite it for others in a humorous fashion and teach others, maybe become a teacher too?

Move to Maine immediately and finish remodeling the house.
Purchase an MRI machine for the local hospital (here) and set up a fund to provide free MRIs in perpetuity.
Set up another fund to supply children with either contact lenses or permanent vision correction (b/c I remember what it was like to be a little girl wearing glasses and having other kids call me "Four Eyes").
Set up yet another fund to provide warm clothes and regular meals to children in need. And one for disabled people who fall through the cracks of the current system.
Return to college...and never stop earning degrees (Literary Theory and Criticism, Folklore, Comparative Religion, Archaeology, Philosophy...oh, the possibilities are endless!).
Set up college funds for all my great- nieces and nephews (and for Gary's grandchildren).
Open a no-kill rescue farm with an onsite veterinarian and take in all the dogs and cats other people throw away.
Take an Alaskan cruise
Learn to sail a tall ship
Visit the UK, France, Greece, Santorini, Italy (esp. Venice), Egypt, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Iceland, Kenya, Cameroon, Madagascar, Botswana, Nepal...
Adopt about six more Newfies. At least.
Help as many other people as possible; in particular, elderly people, veterans, sick children, hungry children

Please note this list is not in order of importance. Nor is it complete.

All right, I see what's going on. This is the opening salvo in what will be an escalating series of juvenile tit for tat exchanges. Well titted! Stand by for my upcoming tat. --Dr. Sheldon Cooper

Become a teacher/scholar and travel the world with my girlfriend and explore the unknown and discover what the world has to offer.

Yeah man. If money was no object? Go get me a doctorate from MIT, start building starships. Heck, I may even be a founding member of The Federation.

I would definitely have a long travelling holiday, but couldn't do that forever x
I would go on more ghost hunts to discover what happens after death, if anything....and I would rescue animals in need and maybe by a farm to live off the land :-)

I hate to break this to you. but no amount of money can achieve that one (at least not currently).

Lily,
You are correct but we can all dream :)
And I'm sure with an infinite resource pool we could find a way :P
