Under normal circumstances, asking, “What would you do with a billion dollars?” seems like a pointless question. Might as well ask, “How many kneecaps does a snake have?” Huh? What? Why would you even ask that? A snake has zero kneecaps, and I will never have a billion dollars.
But times have changed. Now that Quicken Loans, in partnership with Berkshire Hathaway, is offering you a chance to win a billion dollars by creating a perfect bracket for the upcoming 2014 men’s college basketball championship, becoming a billionaire is closer to reality than ever.

So now, that question might strike you a little differently. Now that you have a real chance of becoming a billionaire, what would you do with that money? Me personally, I’d buy as many French bulldogs as possible. But what would you do? Don’t worry, you don’t have to figure it all out on your own. Forbes put together a handy interactive guide that shows you just how far a billion dollars can get you (spoiler alert: PRETTY FAR).
