Just wondering what you guys would do with your time and money if you were lucky enough to win the millions. In the case of those recent winners, 500 plus million each.

I'd check in every once in a while. No one would know I won, so it's not a big deal.

Sending PM now, just in case.

I'd probably buy the vBulliten company and make everyone here a moderator.

I doubt my internet habits would chance aside from using it a bit less as there would be more things to do.

I would visit the site a lot less since I'm on it usually during work - which I wouldn't be doing any more.

Plus with money I'd be too busy doing shit to visit. Hookers and blow demands a lot of time.

I'd pay a large number of us to go to Alan Smithee's house.

You've already received your monthly limit, Mr. Danger.

I would be on here even more to rub all of your noses in it bitches!

I would also release Snake from his suspension and create a new website called DVDTalk2 with even more jiggly gifs. And Snake would be the owner.

I don't see why I would visit less. I enjoy coming here so I'd still post as much as I do now I think. I post from work often but I also do from home too and this is probably my favorite site to visit for movie news and definitely my favorite forum.

This is the most likely scenario for me. Also, if one of us had a ton of money, then we could fly everyone else to some location and have the first annual (and likely only) Dvdtalk Con.

I'd buy the forum and allow boobie pics. And the word c*** would not be censored. And I would solve world hunger. Ok, let's not go overboard, allowing boobie pics would be enough for me.

Re: Would you retire from dvdtalk if you won the lottery?

I certainly wouldn't tell anyone here, but I don't see why I would stop posting. No matter how much money you have, there's always going to be time to kill, and I enjoy spending it reading the posts here.

As for what I'd do with the money, I'd move into a bigger house (nothing too extravagant, but my house is getting a little cramped for my family of 5, and I can't really afford to move right now) and open a comic book store and not really care if it lost money. It would mainly just be there as a way to spend my days enjoyably and not feel bored and useless with all of my new free time.

I would stop posting because I would be too busy having multiple threesomes. I think that I could hook that up if I had just won the lottery.

I'd still visit the same amount, although I'd be doing it from a tropical paradise surrounded by hookers and blow.

I think we need to start a crowd funding campaign here...

The first time anyone badmouthed a film I love I would buy the site and close it down.
