48 hours, $5000
As a college student, I'm pretty strapped for cash. Sometimes I'm not even sure where my next meal is coming from (usually Erbert and Gerbert or Jimmy John's), and so if I suddenly found myself with $5000 that I had to spend in 48 hours, I'm sure I could find a pretty creative way to spend the money.
When I was a little kid, I loved going to the county fair and jumping around in this big inflateable hut called the "Moonwalk." I'm sure most of you have seen it before, and even experienced it; it's a relic from most of our childhoods. So I would spend my $5000 on renting one of these contraptions (made adult sized, of course) and I'd throw a party for a large group of my friends.
