That’s an easy one. You clearly need to invest in your education, but first things first: get your GED, take the ACT a few times, and then apply to University of North Carolina.

If you prefer the super easy route: go long DXD until housing prices show signs of stabilization and then immediately switch to oil futures. If you want to diverisify, now is the time to buy UYG.

How about municipal bonds? The interest grows tax free.

I would invest it in four separate CDs ($250K each) in four different financial institutions, each with different maturity periods. You certainly won't lose your principle during these trying times, but you won't earn much either.

Nah to hookers, too much hard work. What you need is a pool of investors - family, friends and relatives. Each of them is gauranteed their money back plus profit packets each year until they withdraw their funds.
