Too easy. Step 1: rent a private island Step 2: human traffic in a man Step 3: hunt down said man on island with bow and arrow Repeat steps 2 and 3 until satisfied. Might make you numb to life's other thrills though. Encouraged to bring hookers and blow.

It all depends on the size of the bonus...

My idea - become an Italian real estate developer

I've read that some Italian cities are selling homes for $1 or a very low amount (expect deferred maint.. read here:

Buying a $1 Italy dream house just got even easierIf you invest enough money in Italy you can even obtain EU citizenship.

Another idea that a lot of bonuses have been spent on is hookers and blow, but you probably wont last a month going that route.

You just answered your own question: "How do I BLOW my fat sign-on bonus?"

The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

Put it in a Fidelity account and try and forget about it. It'll be a nice surprise someday when you need to pay off a car or put up a first and last months rent.
