I'm in a day dreamy mood so I pose you this question:

If Matazone had billions of pounds what would you use it for?

To elaborate a little here is my idea...

Firstly we* buy a small, as yet undiscovered, island in an unspecified location with a temperate climate and develop it. All the development will be done in the most humane and ecologically friendly ways, of course.
There will be an airport, so matazonians can visit family or have family visit them. There will be a detatched, sound proof, individually designed home for each Matazonian or "family group" there of.
There will be schools and uni's to ensure that all Matazonians have the best education and are properly trained in the use of the English language. Class sizes will be a maximum of five so that everyone gets the attention they need.
There will be a hotel, for friends and family to stay when they visit.
There will be beaches with the purest white sand and no litter in sight, there will be bars along the beach front serving anything you so desire.
There will be no descrimination between races, genders, sexual preference groups etc...
There will be shops, but no money. People will work but purely for mental stimulation and not financial gain. Holidays are unlimited. There will be no taxes.
The bus service will be second to none, all vehicles will be environmentally friendly.
It will be acceptable to walk around naked if so desired, sun cream will be available on every street corner.

Maybe I'm thinking about this too much? Anyway, what would you do?

*that's the royal kind

Sounds okay but if people only work for mental stimulation....who in the world are you going to find to drive the buses?

Utopia - theory works better than reality unfortunately.

If Matazone won the lottery we could finally have a fantastic Matameet. The Florida keys or Hawaii could host the influx of people from all over the globe. I'd be tempted by a free plane ticket and paid hotel. For those under 18 we could offer to fly a favoured guardian also. It could be 3-6 days long. Long enough to make some awesome friends and yet not quite long enough to get on everyone's nerves.
Food, fun, laughter, and (judging by the musical talent of the group) excellent music. Yep, I'd go. Remaining monies could fund the site and/or Mata.

^ almost 100% agreeing with Ashbless here smile.gif

But...I'd like to add a present for everyone, like something they really wanted? Within reason...ie a bass guitar for me, instruments for people...etc etc...

Every house would have ludircrously fast internet access too.

And there would be a dormant volcano, housing my base with a huge rocket. Inside the rocket would be a satellite that I woudl send into space to destroy all the othe satellites until I controlled the skies and could hold the world to ransom.

Sometimes it's like you can read my mind, Mata. tongue.gif

There'd have to be a big library...the kind where you need ladders to reach some of the books. Oh and we could have a big arena thing with a huge screen for gaming competitions. And we'd need an export...something to make a lot of money so we wouldn't go broke. Uhm...some rare, delicious fruit found only on our island. That way we can just hire people from a nearby island to come over on a ferry and do the jobs we don't want to do. biggrin.gif Or we could just *force* them, since Mata plans to take over the world and all, but that wouldn't be very neighborly, would it?

I'd drive a bus! Seriously, driving in good traffic is one of the most relaxing experiences in the world. Especially when there's good tunes, scenery, and friends to go along with it!

I think organising meets in every town/ county/ state in every country that a Matazonian lives in, which is free for all Matazonians (and guardians) to attend, good grub and drink. Annualy. Yeah, that sounds good biggrin.gif. Also sounds like we'd all be living outta suitcases a fair bit of the year too.


Or, spending the money on a 16 year electorial campaigne for Feyliya! I think with 16 years to prepare and loadsa dosh we could stand a good chance. With all of us meeing up in the US to promote/ help out.


Xeno, I wouldn't mind driving a bus on Snoo's island, as long as that is, no one minds the fact that I'd be learning on the job tongue.gif

SPS, English? Tsk, surley you mean Scottish? *thinks of Sean Connery*


Oh Cand, a library with tall ladders sounds fun! Oh, with the ladders on rollers, so we can all zip around, tehehe smile.gif -Hey Library Ladder Racing, not to sure exactly how it works, but could be fun.

Hrm...

I'm all for funding Mata and the huge Mata meets. While we're at it, we could buy off the UN and each become high ranking members of it and finally get the world going good. I think a global Mata Tour (we buy a plane and travel all around the world having crazy misadventures) would be a good idea.

The library's good, too, but while we're at it, we simply must have a full selection of video games, movies, and CDs as well. And we should all get mp3 players?

And hows about "Mata-Stock?" It could be a huge seven day concert with... no price gouging!

Oh, waterproof MP3 players so that we can swim/ walk in tropical rain stormes with them, and they are walkie talkies and GPS devices and mobile phones with free call anywhere in the world so that wwe can call family and friends all the time too!

Hell, Ashbless, if I had money, even a limited amount (though quite large), I'd throw a massive Matameet here in Florida, even if it put me into debt. If you couldn't afford the fares, I'd fly all of you guys over here. I couldn't promise most of what has suggested, but in Jacksonville, the beaches are gorgeous and the Best Westerns are quite comfortable, however being the cheap bastard I am, I'd throw four or so into a room and possibly have people crash at my house or my sister's house (where there are nice couches and plenty of floorspace for sleeping bags). For music, I'd book Social Failure and any other bands willing to play there (LCK and Mushroomhead come to mind). For refreshments, I'd have Ritz soda and Moon River pizza (and if you don't like it, bring a cake or something). I'd load the place up with couches of all shapes and sizes, a bar complete with keg, bottled and mixed drinks and shots (but you'd need ID; I don't want to get arrested again), a smoking room (depending on where it's held), TVs with PS2s, Xboxes and Gamecubes (I'd have to rent those), schedualed events and door prizes. All would be welcome; I don't care who you are.

I seriously would do this if I had the money. I mean, what else am I gonna spend my money on?

Oh, and I'd talk with Polo and see if he wants to have an event where he officially names my penis.

but, if every matazone "family member" lived on this island, wouldn't the fourms die? since we can all just go outside and talk to each other there wouldn't be anyuse to type to each other anymore....
also, if we could have this island, I wouldn't put it in the flordia keys, as there is way too many mosquitos...
and I would still have to go to school!
can we at least shorten it by four years? then there would only be
*counts on fingers*
one and a half more years! that would definatily work for me!
oh and would places like "the bar" be real? 'cause that would be awsome!

How about a large island with annual invited Italian car races, held inside an exact replica of Talladega? We could have an outdoors mall (Trust me those are fun), maybe a Chipotle, nice acre-lots and a giant laser cannon, to crush our enemies! Maybe even a mini laser cannon sand box, to crush little Johnny's sand castle (Sure teaches HIM not to steal the bucket!)

We could secede from wherever countries we come from, and become...
