I did some work last year for a friend as a favor. He conviced his company to pay me for the favor. They paid me a grand for something that only took about 15 minutes to do. Sweet!!! So, what should I use the money for?

anything that goes boom, bang, or pop.

Two words: Coke. Hookers.

How about paying off some Credit Card Debt.

There has not been a better time to invest than right now, there are tons of great stocks, dirt cheap. Pick a winner and in 10-15 years, you will see that 1k turn into 35-40k.

The trick is to picking a winner. What would you suggest? My portfolio includes Apple Computers, Coke, GM, Boeing, Union Tribune, and a couple mutual funds.

Never bet against the winners, I have been buying as much Microsoft and Walmart as I can. (I do about 4k a month in investments), so far, it they have been a couple of winners. I also just made a bundle in shorting Kmart stock, but selling short is not for the faint of heart, nor for 1k. I would ditch apple persoanlly, they are going to go no where, coke sounds good, newspaper stocks always scare me (at least for the past 6 years or so, their ad revenue has taken a brutal beating), airline stocks , who can say, I am a long term investor, and people will have to travel the globe, but I just don't like them right now. As to mutual funds, blah, where is the fun in that?

What about something gun related?

Way to risky, you don't buy a firearm as an investment unless you are buying ti as a shooter (IMHO), while pre-bans have skyrocketed in prioce, a friggin star could shine in the east and the AW ban could sunset, and you would be left with a very expensive "cheap" rifle.

Obviously this is money that you did not count on or incorporate into your budget. If you try to spend it, it will just throw everything off and you'll have to spend all that time recalculating and rebudgeting. Save yourself the headache and send the money to me. I will see to it that it is disposed of properly..... ( I will perform this money-disposal service for any of you, because you are my friends. No minimum amount required. ) [:D]

Yes, you asked first, but Buckaroo has a Money Disposal service. If I send the money to you, I think you'd just use it on beer and hookers. [beer]

Suggestion (mostly gun related): Use the $1000 to buy a cheap piece of property out of state--Nevada, Arizona, or something you can get to on occasion. Get a storage unit nearby. Get a dual residency in that state (drivers license with your property's address). Then buy what you want when you get more money and store it in the storage unit. Get out and shoot on occasion. Or use the $1000 as a downpayment on a cheap house or trailer in a free state.
