now i'm picturing a rich idiot giving those breaths to his pet dog.

the sapient pet dog then kills the guy for having him neutered, and take over the financial empire.

Awaken the vegetable garden fence to keep non-human animals from entering the garden. You'll never have to worry about losing your tomato plants again. Or we might end up with a Nightblood-fence-thing that constantly wants to "destroy vermin", and eats the soul of whatever touches it.

Well, honestly, it would be nice to make your lil doggo immortal so he wouldn't die and make you sad.

I mean going to shadesmar and trying to awaken some beads.

If you did this, and it just invested the object in the physical realm, then you could cause some serious damage/spying without being caught.

Give your breath to TWoK. 

Well, actually, the SA has already taken my breath away.

Awaken some Lifeless elephants to turn a turbine that powers my house. There is a serious labor resource that is being underutilized by Awakeners, considering they can make workers that do not need to eat or sleep and can work tirelessly. I'm thinking of the golems in Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

Wait, stupid? Awaken hundreds of Lifeless hamsters to run on their little hamster wheels to make a legit hamster-powered deathray that I fire at Hallendren.

This is getting pretty theoretical, but I think it might be possible to command your breath directly to manifest in the physical realm, as metal. (Presumably in the form of Edglium). So that'd be cool, and pretty useful. There are lots of things you could presumably do with a shapeshifting blob of metal that you can make appear and disappear at will.

I think that this is actually used in Hallandren, there's a reference to renting Lifeless from the Hallandren government to clear land for farming (When Vivenna and the mercenaries are making all those contacts...)

So they are sometimes used for non-military purposes. However I think large groups of Lifeless in Hallandren are generally controlled by the government. (I am not sure if there are legal limits, or if it's just that rich individuals prefer to use Breath to prolong their life/boost their health.)

I recently had a fantastic yet silly idea of what to do with an extra couple thousand breath.  Give it to a horse and let it become a semisapient immortal horse!  Anyone else have a similarly brilliant idea?

Give it to your goldfish lol

Why a goldfish specifically?

Well, goldfish have the lifespan of 10 years, but most don't even get to live that long. The average IQ of a goldfish is 30-40, meanwhile a freshwater salmon is about 130. So when I said goldfish, I meant the cliche little goldfish swimming around in its bowl in cartoons. It's a small, insignificant creature that is a short-lived pet, and giving it all your breath (especially if you have a lot of it) seemed like a funny idea to me. What use would a goldfish have with more breath than the God King? Would he become the next God King himself- a goldfish?

Give your breath to your car and have it drive itself,granted this can't be done in Nalthis because cars have not been invented yet but we do know that in the future the people of the cosmere will gain technology far above our own and thus cool creation's combining technology and investiture such as this one will become possible.
