Inspired by the countdown clock in this website, I wanted to start a thread for suggestions as to how to spend your bonus. Free feel to share your ideas.

a few ideas:

-an hour massage from a professional (happy ending optional)
-a motorcycle...come on, do you really care if you die?
-down payment on a Ferrari
-or you could be smart and invest it

Blow 5% of the bonus on a one night bender, put 25% of it into a weeklong trip, and invest the other 70%...hopefully you will have a big enough bonus that the 25% can get you somewhere nice, otherwise just spend more and invest less.

Although I'd like to visit Dubai at some point in time, once the tallest building in the world is finished, etc...I can imagine Dubai being more commercialized than the New York, New York hotel in Vegas on New Years.

My vote...French Polynesia.,_Tiput…

Just watch out for the sharks...

There's always some sort of nutty shit being constructed there. I mean, there's a tennis court near the top of that "Sail" building. My only questions is, as an avid tennis player, what happens when a ball gets over the fence? Is it neccessary to alert the people who might be below you to look out for falling objects?

"-a motorcycle...come on, do you really care if you die?"

this is the funniest fucking thing in the entire thread, and i feel like i'm the only one who noticed.

on a much more serious note, i'd recommend doing something like this: if your bonus is $65k, for exmaple, get ten $6500 hookers (clean, pretty ones) over the course of 12 hrs. or, if you're really ambitious, twenty for $3,250 each over 12 hrs. you'd sacrifice some quality, but my god what a feat that would be. and don't tell me it can't be done: that's 1 or 2 hookers per hour. so it's not that time is a problem; it's whether or not you have the endurance.

Bonus Idea #536: Charter Branson's Yacht (Originally Posted: 01/07/2010)

Those with a little bonus money burning a hole in their pocket have a new toy to consider. Sir Richard Branson is making his stately yacht, the Necker Belle, available for charter. For the low, low rate of $88,000 a week, the yacht can be yours.

The catamaran has 4 cabins that accommodate 8 passengers (plus 2 more can crash on the couch in the salon if you're splitting the charter among frat buddies). Included are a speedboat with water skis and wakeboards, a fully equipped fishing station with fighting chair, SCUBA gear, and a 6-foot diving board on the top of the aft deck.

You'll be served by this crew of 6:

but when your week is up, they get to stay and wait for the next group of working stiffs to pony up ninety grand.

How are you investing/spending your Bonus? (Originally Posted: 02/10/2011)

Most bonuses have been paid, so how are you investing yours, or how will you invest/spend it once you get one?
Placing it in the bank/under a mattress?
Splurging on a car or other crap that depreciates?
Putting in a down payment on an investment property?
In the markets?
models and bottles(wife and kids)?

The season is afoot, let's revive this thread. My list:

Breguet Classique Regulator. Apple I-Phone. Annual driving range membership at Chelsea Piers. Bottle service at Cain. Unforgettable night at Scores. Throw a bum $100. VEGAS the RIGHT way. Back to work...

This is why we do this job.
