Why is it ALWAYS an extra from the movie "Deliverance" that wins the HUGE MEGA Lottery???

Meet the nation's latest multi-millionaire Chris Shaw (29) that's years old and not the number of teeth he has left. The tattooed father of three who was raised by his grandparents in rural southern Missouri (STUNNER) 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."

Maybe the tooth fairy?

Shaw said he bought the $5 ticket Wednesday at the Break Time convenience store where he works. 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.REALLY?
He also plans to seek advice "from people who know about money" about whether to take the jackpot in 30 payments over 29 years or the lump-sum amount of $124,875,122.
