You just won the lottery! What is your first? Posted on May 22, 2023 by Anonymous You just won the lottery! What is your first LULZ related purchase?
renovating one of the rooms in my home to become a rustic library complete with a wheeled ladder. Which will then be filled with doujin and philosophy books
Degenerate pig fucker
Establishing a yearly endowment to my high school and college library.
And then maybe all the Loeb classics.
>Establishing a yearly endowment to my high school and college library.
based but ONLY if you insist on them naming a grant or scholarship in your honour
Nice bookcases. I need more badly
if you win the lottery buy 2 sets so you can scan one of them for us
I get some (possibly hot) teacher to teach me Russian.
A house with a real library and reading room. I want at least two floors, maybe three of space, books crawling up along the walls with a tiered walkway above. Dimmed lighting to protect the books from UV. A huge set of comfy seating available below as well as a robust study area.
I use my vast wealth to become the literary character
A house to store more bookshelves. More bookshelves. Finally, I will sit down and fill in my gaps to create a complete library of Nintendo Power magazines.
/lit/‘s annotated Moby Dick
Better be at least be 50 million after taxes if I’m spending a cent on a book
One of those twenty volume Oxford English Dictionaries. Ever since I learned about this set from Penn "Trashman" Jillette (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJhQKw2xZIM @28:33) I've wanted one. I had access to the online OED for sometime, but I really want the set for my study
knowing me i'd look it up online anyway if it's got the same info
I would give every single poster on LULZ a golden ticket inviting them to a competition in one year. At that competition they have the chance to win five million dollars. There can be multiple winners. The only thing they have to do to win five million dollars is pass an oral exam on classical society focused on primary sources, pass Latin and Greek reading and composition exams, perform several Euclidean constructions and pass a relatively easy problem from Apollonius' treatise on conics sections, give two one-hour presentations on two major philosophers of their choosing, give one presentation on the oeuvre of a pre-20th century literary author of their choosing, bench press 200lbs, have a conversation in a European language of their choosing which they did not learn as children, and swear an oath never to respect the opinions of unmarried women.
I'd invite everyone interested to a remote research institution I'd set up but under false pretext since it turns out to be more of a sadistic concentration camp
no one here other than 3 people can bench 200 lbs you nagger
give me that lottery ticket
At least I pass the 200lbs
Idiot 200lbs is attainable within 3 months of lifting that's when I got it [no juice]
I would buy a country estate. At least a hundred acres of land.
I would farm it, but mostly to provide forage for pheasants, partridge and deer.
A small craftsman’s bungalow with swimming pool, grill and smoker
A good pedigree German Shorthair pointer for bird hunting
A Beretta Silver Pigeon 12 gauge shotgun
Maybe a AYA 20 gauge SXS for partridge
I might raise a small herd of sheep as well and need a couple of border collies.
A Toyota Tacoma pickup truck for work on the farm
A Porsche 911 for entertainment, picking up the young and impressionable farmers’ daughters.
A couple nice guitars as well
A sunburst Les Paul
A butterscotch Telecaster
A Gibson Hummingbird
A good wine cellar maybe a few choice Bordeauxs but mostly more middle of the road fare like Argentine Malbecs, California Zinfandels and Pinot Noirs and Italian Chiantis.
I would also take a few fishing trips to the Florida Keys and Belize. Maybe take up diving as well.
I probably won’t have much time for reading with all that keeping me busy though
It’s 2023. There are no farmers’ daughters. There are no young people in these places, let alone young women.
Get some land up in the mountains
Stock up on ammo
Read all the books that the feds don’t want me to read
One million mass market paperback copies of Catcher in the Rye
I would buy the Strand in Manhattan
I would sell off the duplicate or multiple copies of books and all books by female authors
Get a mattress and a piss jug and move in
A hundred beautiful leatherbound copies of The Turner Diaries to hide in various libraries
A nice tall back armchair. A set of cozy blankets. linen, cotton, and wool for different seasons. A massive stone hearth like the one from Christmas in Connecticut. Then a shitload of the finest whiskey money can buy so I can get drunk in my armchair in front of my fire while pretending to read.
Christmas in Connecticut is a cozy movie.
A house to put books in
Call of the Crocodile

I'd hire a team of veteran hitmen to cleanse the world of all trannies, triphomosexuals and spamnaggers on LULZ.org but especially LULZ and /tg/ (userbase would be back to the numbers of the early 2000s I imagine)
Anything by Alexius Meinong. Shits pricey.
>buy/build 2 story house in the middle of the mountains
>get a real piano and the other studio equipment I always wanted
>gtfo from society to focus on writing and music
I wouldn't mind some coke and/or opium now and then

A bigger house to have a library full of Raildex books.
complete works of picrel would be first. after that, the newest Norton and Bevington shakespeares, two shelves of the best shakespeare criticism, complete Freud, complete Proust, complete Faulkner, and then at least one eight foot tall shelf dedicated solely to contemporary literature in translation
>You just won the lottery! What is your first LULZ related purchase?
I'm gonna buy some artists.
probably hiring an assassin to take out rupi kaur
it's like a caricature, incredible
Wtf I love Rupi now
she's a fucking demon.
is this AI generated, because it's far beyond what Rupi Kaur can do stylistically.
Kek, she grew up middle class in Canada.
>middle class in Canada
Brampton, Ontario is basically a third-world country because 'jeets have basically colonized it.
commissioning hundreds of artists to depict many of e-boita's descriptions
The Commemorative Edition of Pihkal and Tihkal
My dream has always been to open a publishing house where anons can be published and also just obscure works in Latin and such. So first would be that. Then I fund the opening of an academy to give willing students a rigourous training in humanities (languages, history, literature, philosophy). Then retire to southern France or Greece with a modest house and an immodest personal library, while living a modest life so as to avoid wagecuckery.
a hundred thousand books
I didn't mean to write sage, it's the browser's fault
If I had a billion dollars I would still spend $0 to download books from libgen.
a book publisher
What would you publish?
Translations of works that are not available in my language or have subpar translations - like NYRB editions
Good, archival paper and leatherbound editions of classics - kind of like la Pléiade, but without the Bible paper - and non-fiction
Complete works of some authors
I'd also publish contemporary literature that is not minorities' misery porn or intersectionality babble.
Video editor for my booktube channel
I’d get Gillian Anderson to make erotica audiobooks
I would stop reading books and start living my life
Probably something along the lines of Asset management and protection for dummies, or introduction to accounting so I don't get raped ultra hard by the tax man and end up paying 60+% in taxes and fees.
Or worse, end up in prison because I fucked up some paperwork and the government just takes 100+% of it.
I ain't looking to get my life ruined.

Put together a team for an Oceans 11 style heist on the Vatican vault, then with the remaining money hiring top-level ai specialists and translators to translate all of it as quickly as possible. Then post them on here as they are completed.
I start collecting facsimile books which are replicas of old famous books. They cost anywhere between €1000 and €10.000

>At long last, my lights can go out.
Im going to buy Chekovs gun.
A brand new bookshelf and physical copies of all the japanese light novels I like, starting with Ascendance of a Bookworm.
After that nothing changes because I already have the best ereader (Kindle 3) and more than enough physical copies of books to keep me busy for years.
Going on a trip to newyork to get into a large bookstore and buy physical editions of all those books that are not translated in my thirdie cunt
Looking for new or used books? New just order off amazon. Used, don't go to New York. Go to Chicago or Portland or San Francisco.
