You stole my idea. But I don't think 7, 8, and 9 count as one thing. Buy Shell, Wal-Mart, and Toyota.

You think this could all be done with 50% of the world's income? Hmm. Probably.

A large army with which to conquer a country.

A police force to help govern it while the user fees are slowly phased in, no need to phase out taxes with that much money, just toss them out right away.

Advisers who know the sort of specifics I don't of course.

A bundle of stocks that gives great dividends to live off of so I can govern without a salary, make matters easy.

Scientists to research both new military technology for mah army and the possibility of immortality or the next nearest thing (Though I highly doubt anything they could do would end it for "all people.")

Put half of what's left in the gunmint's "safety trust" so to speak.

Planned Parenthood gets about 1% of what's left after that, free condoms for all.

The remainder, I'd just split between The Atlas Society and the Ayn Rand Institute to watch them compete with ungodly amounts of money and see if they can think of anything I didn't.

Though this is a stupid thought experiment. None of us will ever access that much money, indeed, no one ever will.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

1. Time's hottest 100 women

2. North Korea which will then be sold to South Korea for a huge profit.

3. Buy Madagascar and set up my base of operations there, and transport said Women there.

4. Create the world's greatest democracy by buying out DDO and bringing all of it's members to Madagascar, where all of them will form our parliament, making day-to-day decisions whilst I remain Grande Generalissimo Scarlet of our 8 million or so strong army, navy and air force.

5. Hire the best Military, Economic and virtually every other aide needed to run a country and bring them to Madagascar.

6. Invade Middle East for teh oilz.

7. Invade Britain for teh lulz ( Now how do YOU like it?)

8. Set up paramilitary groups in various countries to raid banks for more cash.

9. Set up many private military companies in America to have a smaller army on paper, but the PMC's are of Suicidal loyalty to me.

10. Buy stocks in various stable companies guaranteeing profit.

Then, sit back and enjoy life.

It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

Well, first I would get as many pennies as are possible with the money (all of the pennies in the world), and then melt those down to copper/zinc, which I will use partially to give laby liberty a moustache, and then the rest to make a giant statue of myself which will sit atop mount everest.

I will then acquire as much of the physical cash as I can (I'm assuming that there is more digital money than there is physical) and make a long, public spectacle of destroying it. Admission to shows which feature the shredding of currency notes en masse will cost money, in addition to the airtime, merchandise, and food being sold at the event, which will all replace some of the money I am destroying.

I will continue this for as long as possible. I will then deposit the rest of my money into a bank, which will become bankrupt trying to pay interest. If there aren't any banks which allow that much money to be deposited, I will use my money to create a bank which does. I will use all remaining money to give to fund various media outlets under the condition that they discontinue all advertisement.

Nah, it wouldn't, you are just puppets while I maintain total Military control. I will allow any decrees to be passed unless I want to step in.

Furthermore, Dawkins will only be allowed veto a bill twice. He will also hold the Congress of Darwin which will act as his parliament.
