If you were a wealthy philanthropist, what would you do?

Post by Abdul Alhazred »

I never really thought about it before, but reading about this particular wealthy philanthropist makes me think about it.

Here's a man who absolutely had the right idea about proper philanthropy. 8)

Creative, but still a form of indentured labour.

I was planning on just giving free handouts.

I'd reinstitute slavery. I'd figure out some sort of binding contract and ship my slaves off to someplace like Epsteins island. I'd talk in a fake southern accent wear one of those redneck broad brimmed hats and sip mint julips.

I'd get Shemp and Rob and give them hovels with dirt floors. Then I'd give Rob a wood floor just to piss off Shemp.

Thats the ticket.

Shit.

I guess I'll have to find some other way to get my secret passageways when I get rich.

Buy an island where I would charge people to hunt other people for sport. The twist would be that the people you would be hunting would be OTHER people who had paid to hunt people. In effect, you would be hunting each other

Make sure they pay up front.

I had an idea for a product called Death TV or DTV. All obits, all the time. Had the whole thing worked out. You could have a weekly segment.
