Don't want to know what you would buy, want to know the one thing you wouldn't even give a second of consideration towards when thinking about what to buy. If someone lists something they wouldn't buy, that would be your first consideration for purchase, don't justify why you think is is cool to own it. Just interested in what you aren't interested in.

Me, a boat! The earlier thread on boats reminded me why I don't want to own one. Went out with some friends one time who had a very nice inboard/outboard ski boat. I was bored to death after two hours. If I didn't have such a strong desire to live I would have jumped over board and drowned myself. If you own a boat I'm very happy for you, the industry employs thousands of people for which I'm grateful so don't take it personal.

What wouldn't be on your list?
A home in any big city, Seattle, NYC, Portland , etc.

Wouldn't buy expensive jewelry or watches. A fur coat.

My unbroken streak of no collectibles from the Franklin Mint would continue.

I wouldn't buy any Restaurant in The Villages. I'd burn the money first.

Only ones getting rich off gambling are the owners and the government.

Interesting post about taxes - so move to the UK ,,,,,, all gambling winnings are free of tax, and as a UK citizen I would invoke article 61 of the USA/UK dual taxation agreement to pay no tax on the winnings at all - I have experience of this when I hit a big one at Tampa Bay Downs ...sent back the 1040 with the notice of deduction and the IRS sent me a check !! Whooppeee !!!!
