People Share The First Thing They'd Purchase If They Had An Infinite Bank Account

From our childhood through our adult years, one thing we all dream of from time to time is all the things we could do if we had unlimited resources. Buy a castle and become your own anti-hero, solve world hunger, adopt ALL the animals, live on an endless cruise around the world, heck, buy a whole political party *cough cough*.

Most of us would be content making sure our family and friends were set for life and bettering the world the best we can.

Redditor ApArAmY wanted to hear what everyone else dreamed of doing if they had no limit on funds.

What is the first thing you would buy if you had infinite money?"

Dreaming of affordable health care? Must be from the US...

​“Every single medical provider facility in the world. Make healthcare free for patients. Since I have unlimited money, I can afford whatever drug/device/material/salary/etc that would treat patients.”

“Then everyone can get on with living life knowing that they'll get good medicine and not be saddled with high costs. And taxes could go down because governments wouldn't have to pay for healthcare.” Specialist-Ad475

​20 trillion, no big deal...

I'd fund all efforts to further the fight against climate change, global warming, pollution, etc. I'd probably try not to spend that much money for a while so as to prevent inflation, but adding ~20 trillion dollars to the global economy wouldn't be that bad, right?”PixelGMS

The orange one wouldn't like this idea...

“I'd buy Mar a Lago, make it into a homeless shelter and install wind power turbines on all 18 holes." Mr-Warmth

​Someone come get their dad!

A new butt, my old one has a crack in it!" drewdwagy1966

Human rights and green energy...

“Buy Amazon, Nestle, and as many $1billion+ corporations as I can. Once I'm CEO, I would stop every human rights violation they cause and give all the profits (since i have infinite money I won't need it) to charities and funding to green energy and stopping climate change."crispier_cream

The Best Questions To Ask During A Job Interview | George Takei’s Oh Myyy

When heading to a job interview, many candidates only prepare to answer questions about qualifications or past experience. But they should also be ready to a...

So pure...

“It sounds silly, but an ice cream sandwich. Several years ago, I was living paycheck to paycheck and had a fair amount of credit card debt. I fell behind in my mortgage and lost my home to foreclosure. Shortly after I was notified, I drove over to a 7-11, bought an ice cream sandwich, and ate it while crying in my car.”

“Unfortunately, every time I eat an ice cream sandwich, it's still a bittersweet feeling. I always think of the day my favorite childhood comfort food became forever intertwined with my sense of complete and utter failure. After coming into life-changing money, I would hope that an ice cream sandwich would taste as good again as it did when I was a kid.” Steve-in-rewrite

Just….. a huge chunk of land.”

“Land. Just….. a huge chunk of land. Build a house for my parents, one for us, and one for my In-Laws, and another small house for the family to stay at when they come to visit. Maybe two. We got a big family. And then just spend my time building my farm." Unusual_Amphibian_20

Just make sure to funnel it through a PAC first...

​“A US Senator! Or several of 'em. I've always wanted my own senator.” a_dangerous_noodle

The who’s got a bigger one game...

​“Judging by the world we live in, apparently I'd enter into the private space race.” Cool-breeze7

Back to the bartering system perhaps?

“I would distribute it all evenly so that it's literally worthless. I would expect this to collapse the economy but what do i know, I'm not an economist.” Jham_jam

It seems like mostly these Redditors want to help others and the planet. Although for that one person, may all your ice cream sandwiches be delightful.

CW: Domestic violence.

Sometimes family are the ones to avoid most.

That whole blood and water thing is true.

Evil is everywhere.

Even in our blood, our DNA.

It can be daunting to learn that someone you share something so intimate with can be darkness incarnate.

But really, that's probably a statistical truth for all of us.

So how do we cope?

Friends, especially great friends share a lot in life.

We share secrets, memories, joy, sorrow and in some cases... sex.

Is this a good idea or an unmitigated disaster?

The jury is still out.

It works for some and is a disaster for others.

Plus it can muddle the history of the relationship.

So what do people do?

Let's find out...

An undeniable part of the magic that guests experience at many of the Disney parks around the world is the interactions with characters.

Those who post photos of their Disney vacations will almost always include a photo with Mickey and/or Donald Duck, Goofy, Minnie, and their human friends like Snow White, Belle, Moana, or villains like Gaston.

It's not that difficult to suspend your disbelief during an encounter with a Disney character.

But spoiler alert, the beloved icons you're putting your arms around and giving hugs are with total strangers who are paid to make you feel special.

Redditors got a chance to discover what it's like for those costumed Disney cast members giving hugs and signing autographs to kids of all ages that they've never met before.

We can all agree that there is something to appreciate about every country in the world, but there are arguably some countries that appear to have their ducks more consistently and happily in a row than others.

While it would be easy to let pride get in the way and continue to do things the same way, the more productive thing would be to learn from the countries who have figured out a better way to do certain things, whether it's healthcare, food banks, or other services.
