Five things I'd do if I were a billionaire
-Buy a cabin on a lake with a dock, canoe, stone fireplace and a separate building for my workshop (boatbuilding, bike building..)
-Invest in technologies: algae to fuel, algae to plastic, wave power
-Invest in society: how to take 10 years off your age by eating right and getting moderate exercise, and how to stop being a moron
-Organise 'Inventor's Club' meetings for my son and his friends every week. Topics: electrical motors, building bridges out of raw spaghetti, soldering irons, blowing glass, lathes and mills, mallets and chisels

Thanks for the tag--I need to get back to thinking about something besides Star Trek.

Can you say more about "How to stop being a moron?" And how would having a billion dollars help you combat moronitude?
