Imagine me, being the 100% owner of McDonalds.

It would be fantastic. I'd be rich enough to never have to work, I can have an infinite supply of Sausage McMuffins with Eggs, and I can walk around drinking McD orange juice while giving random orders over the phone.

McDonalds best company in the world.

Pfft. Wendy’s any day of the week. Far better burgers, and they have loaded fries.


They've got nothing on the Sausage McMuffin with Egg, Fillet-O-Fish, and the Bic Mac.

Also, McDonalds is far more creative with their seasonal specials.

There is an inactive camp near where we lived. It is in the Adirondacks, abuts a state park, and runs along a stream between two small lakes. It is in ruins but still has water and septic facilities, tennis courts, basketball, archery, and many sturdy foundations on which to build.

There is a pebbly beach

Fishing is good/

I would bring at least some of it to life, and share it with local kids.

The asking price is 3 million dollars.

(I think there are 450 acres)

The most expensive apartment building in New York City (or I suppose London or Paris or something might be acceptable). I can live off rents and whatnot, or if I get sick of it, sell the building and live off the fortune I'll acquire as a result (probably including buying less expensive properties that I might want :p ).

A pub in a decent location for amount of custom.

In fact, there's that pub right by parliament in london that MPs frequent. That one. I'd rename it to the spoiled ballot. Because the current owner has no sense of style or humor.

Do you remember the 2012 election where Mitt Romney said Russia was the biggest threat to world peace and Obama and the Democratic establishment mocked him, mere years before they began arguing they had allowed US sovereignty to be usurped on their watch by Russia and this is why the other side was unfit to govern?
That's alright, neither do they apparently.

Probably some combination of Fallingwater, the Farnsworth House and the Stahl House, except somewhere on a Norwegian Fjord or the Pacific coast somewhere between Seattle and Vancouver?

Though I'd want a copy of it on one of the outlying islands of Hong Kong or the far side of Penang too, for if I don't feel like shitty weather.

A mansion in Wiltshire maybe. Saying that, a relatively large property between Imola, Venice and Milan somewhere would be nice. Perhaps Solvenia- but I can't pronounce brg dyrhk, so I would have to give people my address in writing...
Let's go for a large property somewhere near Marghera then. On the other hand, maybe somewhere between to Rome/ Pompeii? Saying that, Pompeii's near Napoli, and I that looks like a third world country. Not there then. I know Catalonia quite well though, and I like Catalonia. And I speak Spanish, which helps. Abu Dhabi's nice as well. And shopping's easier than Spain in Italy or the UAE. I also prefer the food in the UAE or Italy.

In summary, I would like:
-A large mansion near the Emerald River in Slovenia
-A large house in Catalonia, between Barcelona and Girona
-The Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi
-A super-car and a private jet for transport between the aforementioned properties and Italy

In return for the long list, I give the genie permission to destroy Orlando and the surrounding area.
