    I wish that would cover my student loans, but it won't. So why pay a debt I physically cannot complete?? The balance will always generate interest anyways, making it a black hole.

    Soooooo I'd buy some land & hockey gear. That way at least I'll have somewhere to live. Because being homeless sucks.

      $25k would get me free and clear of all debts except my mortgage.

                        It's not even the deposit for a starter home. I couldn't do anything useful with just $25,000

                            I would use it as a down payment on a brand new Nissan Murano fully decked out. It would be my last car.

                                I'm only interested in property. It doubles in value every 12 years. Rental income pays for a property in 12 years. So your 25k share of a house, pays your 25k back, and becomes worth 50k in 12 years. So 25 becomes 75. Though there will be costs, and erosion caused by inflation. It's still 10% growth per year. Which you need not manage yourself.

                                Lets say you put that 25 in, and get your 75 back. With that, buy 3 more units. That 12 years later becomes 9 units. Roughly speaking, your 25k becomes a 25k yearly income after 25 years.

                                Or I could buy a vw golf(rabbit), that lasts on average 12 years.

                                I know where I would rather be in 12 years.
