What is the best way to spend $100? It's really a simple question, but the answers can be... conflicting.

This list includes some of the greatest suggestions for how to spend 100 bucks, so vote up what you'd do with the cash money and vote down what you wouldn't waste it on.

Also, if you have a suggestion that isn't listed, by all means, add it. And don't be shy: there is no judging here. What would you do if you suddenly found yourself with an extra $100 lying around?
