100k will only buy you a toilet in Manhattan.

C please. Much as I''d like to have a super expensive ring, I''d have no place to wear it and it would look silly on me!

Where can you buy any sort of living structure for $100K? I don''t even think you could get a plot of land to put a travel trailer on nearby where I live.

I''d take the gold.

I''d take the house! $100,000 in Texas will get you a 1200-1500 square foot new home in many places or a bigger older home.

D or E. I don''t think it''s possible to find a $100k house in my area that isn''t infested with rats, roaches and illegal activity.

Ditto. I'm a bit
older than AmberGretchen, but young enough that I can hold stock for five years or as long as it would take to for it to increase in value -- significantly.

On the other hand, $10K in gold -- at today's prices -- is about 333 grams (~10 ounces) of pure gold...

444 grams of 18 k gold...

570 grams of 14 k gold...

hmmmm........

D or E. Fun as it would be to rock a $100,000 ring, even fun games end up being practical lately.

Ooooops -- $100K? Multiply all of the above by 10!

That''s way more gold than I have loose gemstones for, so I''ll take the stock, please!

Thanks, DF!

That would be wonderful! If only each of my family members could get $100K so they could all join us out there!
I cannot imagine life without grandma and grandpa to watch the kids on the weekends.

Hmmm. If I didn''t have to *live* there, I''d take the 100K investment property. I''m torn between gold & the biggo bling. Is the fun of wearing it worth the extra cost of insuring the bling? (Wouldn''t insure the gold probably ... safety deposit box?) Eh, I''ll take the gold. Where am I gonna wear 100K worth of bling. LOL!
