Life on a beach, exotic pets... what would you do with $425 million?

A mind-boggling $425 million is on the line tonight when the Mega Millions lottery numbers are drawn.  Louisiana Lottery officials say it's the second-largest jackpot in the Mega Millions game since Louisiana added it to its list of games in 2011.

These large jackpots always raise the question: what would you do if you suddenly had all that cash?  Answers can range from the mundane to the insane.

"Pay all my debt off, that's all I would do," on person told us this morning.

"I'd probably do something nuts and go to the hospital," another said.  And if the shock of winning doesn't give you a heart attack, then what?

"I think I'd hop on a plane and head to Hawaii, and then hop on a plane and see some more of the United States," was another man's answer.

Some folks had trouble thinking of anything bizarre that they would do with the money, but with a little cajoling, were able to come up with some ideas.

"Maybe buy an unusual pet?  A monkey or lion or something like that," one man hypothesized. "Are those even legal to have? I don't know."
