Honestly, tear down the house I currently live in, build a house for me and my parents in a brutalist style (because brutalism is the best architectural style, don't @ me), invest in efforts to stop climate change, water treatment plants so that all communities in Canada won't have boil water advisories that last for eternity, and then once that's done, basically just order in some fucking good food until I die at the ripe old age of 27 from a heart attack. ;)

Doubling the amount of money in existence would pretty significantly lower the value of money, so I'd keep a few million and destroy the rest.

Knuckle meat. Not hand. And no, I'm not.

I'd probably buy a small island or a remote inland property. Wait, both. I'll also save some for potential medical emergencies, and then donate a lot of my wealth throughout my lifetime.

IRL though it'll make me paranoid and more evil.

I’d put it into a savings account, but I’d also invest in numerous golden visas.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigrant_investor_programs)

I’d get passports and residency in Malta, Cyprus, Thailand, the US, the UAE, St Kitts and Nevis, Greece, Vanuatu, Portugal, Spain, Turkey and then Singapore. Of course, any single citizenship requirements won’t count because my government doesn’t recognise other countries not recognising dual citizenship. I’ll be everywhere... and nowhere.

While my sig is mostly jest, and I do not want to harm those who are tankies, let me say this: If you’re the type to talk about “fash” or “bashing the fash” yet refuse to criticise the crimes of Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao, then you need to take a long, hard fucking look at yourself. Because you ARE the thing you want to “bash”, even if you dress it up in a different skin.

It depends, is this money all of the world's economy or is it just the world's largest bank account. I presume it's the latter.

What would I do with such money? With such money, I could probably buy out entire countries. I would basically have unlimited power over the entire Earth. It would probably go to my head, but presuming it doesn't, I would probably give 20 trillion dollars to the city of Houston. Just to see what would happen. Other than that, I would probably help to develop poorer regions, such as Africa and the Middle East, and could easily start some kind of megacorporation that could oversee projects that I see fit (I.E Developing said poor regions, investing in tech startups that could advance humanity, along with personal projects like destroying the Kardashians and perhaps bribing Elon Musk into doing the Macarena). Of course, I am an idiot, so even if I am able to keep my morality, my subordinates and more ambitious board members probably wouldn't.

Essentially, you should not trust me with that much power, as the world is likely doomed. Because even if I don't use it for evil, I will somehow find a way to fuck it up.

As for hedonism? Eh. I'd probably get a better house, maybe a nicer computer/tv, but that's it. Living in a mansion sounds like it would just be a burden after a while.

Same. I think I would start, though, by paying any debt my family has left and making sure they all have safe and comfortable homes. Other than that, it's very difficult to think what I could do because it is a humongous amount of money.

Start a non-profit think tank to research science, medicine, and technology, end Global Warming, start a aid service to help those dealing with poverty, sickness, human trafficking, etc..., Fund my own private military to combat right-wing extremism and authoritarianism, invest in plastic catchers and plastic eating bacteria while also funding the creation of a plastic replacement so it stops being single use, fund ocean and space exploration, create my own production/film/television company and buy all the rights to my favorite franchises so they can stop being bastardized by companies like Disney or CBSViacom, steal money from the rich and redistribute to people who actually need it, and so on...

Besides that... probably just invest smartly so I can keep those projects going smoothly, buy a medium-sized house with a nice yard for my pets, and a build 1 or 2 hobby rooms.

Why only 100%?

They have tons of offshore accounts and business in tax havens, so 150% should cover those sneaky little bits.
