"What's Something You Would Never Buy Even if You Became Very Wealthy?", that's what we asked Acadiana Facebook users in a recent poll. Turns out, Acadiana isn't unlike the rest of the country when it comes to wealth.

People will tell you about all the wonderful things they would buy if they win the Lottery, but the fact is, most people in Acadiana would be rather modest in their spending.

Like you, we've heard people say they'd buy sports cars, a mansion, a yacht and many other big-ticket items if money became no option. But that may just be water cooler talk. In reality, at least in our survey, we found that mentality to be much different in the real world.

Here are the Top 5 things people in Acadiana would NOT buy if money wasn't an obstacle.
