    Off You Go

    Nicking this from Twitter...

    You get $5 million but you're obligated to spend the next ten years in a randomly chosen place.

    Random Street View - images from all over the world.

    *screen shot your new home.

    Kyiv, Ukraine

    It looks like I'm going to be spending some of my loot on a renovation.
    Pues, aquí estamos.

    If I understood this correctly , you don't get to choose. If you got to chose I would certainly bot chose Johannesburg, and Misskit would certainly not have chased an empty lot in Ireland.
    you go to the website provided in the OP and it assigns you a random location
    With the Earth being 2/3 water , I hope you can swim, and bring plenty shark repellant LOL
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    Not so bad. Might only be 25Mb interwebs, but I should be able to negotiate a good discount on watermelons.

    A couple of curtains , a futon and $10 million dollars could make the bus stop work , plus you would be close to transportation and get a lot of visitors. LOL

    North Wales, just outside Snowdonia National Park. Do the rules allow you to walk from home? That would be okay.

    An empty section on Unnamed Road in Spain.
    Weather looks nice and I'm sure I could get a nice house with the $5mil.
