    Knowing what you know now, what are some equally bad ways to spend $500 million?

    1. Pay Howard stern to develop three of your radio stations and lend his name to help launch a company.

    2. Invest heavily in soylindra just before it declares bankruptcy

    3. Put all your money in Lehman brothers stock

    4. Bet it all on the twins winning the world series 10 years in a row

    5. Place it, in cash, in the middle of central park on a summer afternoon and trust in the good faith of humanity that nobody will take any

    6. Donate it to nsal

    7. We're it to a Nigerian prince so that he can escape his captivity and give you a reward for your kindness

    8. Give it to crazy cabbie so that he can play online poker at golden casino.com

    9. Try to launch a modeling career for a 40 year old which has failed repeatedly at the same thing throughout her past and has a personality more abrasive than 1 grit sandpaper

    10. Burn it

    It's impossible to spend 500 mil on one single venture, so I'd invest among several.

    -Start an international baseball camp headed by Coach Baba Booey.

    -Buy Bling Bone, start a platinum and diamond collection for the "Urban-American" pet lovers.

    -Buy the rights to "Call of Shuli: Israeli Funny" and put out a Blu-ray with extended footage, bloopers and behind the scenes interviews.

    -Buy all unsold copies of "Oh My Dog"/make wife the best-selling "dog expert" ever.

    -Forget a basement bowling alley lane, can you say full-sized basement football field!

    -Give it to the 15 Foundation so that all Harlem, Bed.Sty and Jamaica, Queens can learn how to make horrible, awful home movies.

    -Buy SFN.

    -Lastly, Arm warmers, arm warmers, arm warmers!

    1 is the only one that actually produced a successful product.

    (Yes, Howard moving to Sirius was huge for Sirius even if us diehards bitch and complain. There would be no Sirius without him.)

    i disagree. XM didn't pay howard a dime, and they ended up with all the subs he brought into sirius.
    XM was the smarter company.

    You don't need 500 million for that. They sent Gary The Retard on a budget of about 20 bucks.
