    Clerk wins $258 million Powerball Jackpot

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100423/...inner_missouri

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. A Missouri man who won a $258 million Powerball jackpot and plans to use some of the money to pay bills and take his children to Disney World says he hasn't decided yet if he'll quit his job at the convenience store where he bought the winning ticket.

    Chris Shaw a 29-year-old tattooed father of three who was raised by his grandparents in rural southern Missouri came forward Thursday as the winner of the 10th-largest Powerball jackpot ever. Shaw said he had just $28.96 in his bank account and recently bought a 1998 Ford Ranger from a friend who agreed to let him pay off the $1,000 price $100 at a time. Now, he said, he no longer has to worry about how he'll pay his friend or his utility bills.

    "We didn't come from money. For us it's just going to be a huge relief to know I'm going to be able to pay my electric bill, my gas bill," Shaw told the Associated Press. "It's like a weight lifted. I had bills at home I didn't know how they were going to be paid."

    Shaw said he bought the $5 ticket Wednesday at the Break Time convenience store where he works in Marshall, a central Missouri town about 80 miles east of Kansas City. He accepted his ceremonial check at the Missouri Lottery headquarters in Jefferson City wearing a tan and red plaid shirt, a red hat and a huge grin minus two front teeth he says he lost because he didn't take care of them but can now afford to have replaced.

    "I'm just a regular guy working paycheck to paycheck ... well not any more," he said.

    Shaw said he needed a few days to decide whether he will keep his minimum-wage job at the store where he has worked for just three weeks...

    3 kids, no front teeth, and $28.96 in your bank account. Well of course this assmouth wins all that money.

    Only once in my life did I ever see a hot chick win the lottery. I think she was 19, and cute as hell when she smiled with her mouth closed. Then she opened her mouth at the press conference and had really crooked, messed up teeth. I said, "Well, I know where the first 5 grand is going."
