Tonight is the night that someone will be set for life, maybe even a few lives. The Mega Millions jackpot, to be drawn tonight, is up to $312 million.

Anytime the jackpot is an obscene amount, I try to think about how much money that really is. To be honest, I can't. Even after the taxes are taken out, it is still a lot of cash. Think about it, even if you bought a new home, or paid your mortgage off, credit cards paid up, new car or paid that off, I guarantee that you would still have money that you wouldn't know what to do with.

If you haven't done it yet, you'll run out to get your ticket, or tickets, and wait for those lucky numbers to come up. Besides the things I'd buy and invest in, I know a few charities I would donate to. What would you do if you won the lottery?
