I think mumps answer was food. But to buy a house for every member of your family isnt a bad idea either. Specially when the stock market is taking a swing down.

$10 million dollars in stocks... there is no way you could go wrong, you could invest $10,000 in 1,000 different companies and be set for the rest of your life.

You dont hear me say that investing that 10 million in stock is a bad idea but in food? hmmmm

Talking about weird answers:

7. If you had to eat one cuisine for the rest of your life, which would it be? (2 Points)
A) Italian
B) Chinese
C) Thai
D) British
E) German
F) Mediterranean
G) French

Italian? Mediterranean food is Italian food and also Greek, Spanish, French, Turkish, Egypt, Moroccan, Croatian and 10 or more so countries.
Why choose Italian only?, that is included in Mediterranean cuisine and you can get/choose much more.

I thought about this. It's hard to eat more than $50 worth of food a day. Even with fancy foods, even with delicacies all over your menu, you're sometimes just going to want a normal pizza or a normal stack of pancakes or some normal ice cream. That $180 dollar of champagne? You don't want that every day. Maybe twice a month. So your yearly food bill is going to struggle to be $20,000. And that is if you eat out every night and accumulate enough cholesterol and fat and alcohol in your system that you aren't going to be able to keep up that pace for 50 years. And those 50 years would only cost you 1/10 of your 10 million dollars. You have to actively try to waste money to spend more than that.

However, LOOPHOLE: What if your $10 million dollars was used for food to feed hundreds of starving children? The question doesn't say that you have to eat all of the food yourself.

It said the $10 mil could only be spent on one thing, it never said that the profits from it could only be spent on more stocks. If you could only spend the profit on more stocks then of course no one would pick stocks as an asnwer.

Use the $10million to buy blue-chip stocks which pay quarterly dividends, and then use the dividends to buy food, apartments, plane tickets, and tuition for hungry children. :wink: winning!
