How would you spend $500,000,000?

$500,000,000. The amount might be hard to grasp, but fantasizing about how to spend it comes easy.

Many people are thinking about how they would spend $500,000,000 if they were to win Friday night's Mega Millions jackpot.

"Family. New house. New car. Give some to charity, church. What are you gonna do with all that money?"

"Hunting land, a lot of it, like the state of Michigan."

"People come in, get a dollar ticket, two dollar ticket. We have people getting $80 in tickets, $1000 worth of tickets at once," said cashier Allen Dickens.

The last chance to buy a ticket will be 10:44 Friday night. And if you do win, the cash option is $359,000,000.

If there is a winner of Friday's drawing, they'll be worth more than Mitt Romney and Barack Obama combined, but not more than Oprah. Her net worth is estimated at $2.7 billion.
