If you ask what someone would do if they won the lottery you tend to get some fairly mundane answers. Pay off debts, medical expenses, donate to some people whose work they like, figure out how this happened when they never bought a lottery ticket, so forth.
This is all well and good but it kind of misses the point of the question which is, more or less, if real life financial constraints no longer limited you, what would you do? And to that question, “Build a floating island,” is a better answer than, “Buy a/pay off my house,” because the whole point is to bring up the not-ordinary ideas/desires/whatnot you’d fulfill.
So, what would you do if you were no longer limited by the constraints (time and money) real life places upon you?
