Cashing in that old Montana cabin fund?

Despite the fact that it got a teeny-tiny mention in The Daria Database, the Montana cabin fund has become the stuff of Dariaverse legend. The idea doubtless came from the fact that the antisocial Unabomber, Theodore Kaczynski, was captured in a remote cabin near Lincoln, Montana. The possibility that she might get her own such cabin has doubtless crossed Daria's mind.

Even a cursory search with Google shows a large number of fanfics making mention of Daria's Montana cabin fund. In The Daria Database, Daria is shown with a whole pillowcase full of money (her fund), and noted that she stuffed it with $45 in just one day's haul from her parents. How much do you imagine a clever high schooler could sock away before graduation? What do you think she might do with so much money? If her financial note in TDD reflects her habits, she puts away two-thirds of her income from all sources in the so-called fund.

A fun thing to speculate about. What would she do with all that cash?

Maybe she'd buy a Cyclotron so she could use high energy beams for nuclear physics experiments using people like Kevin or Tom as suitable targets.
