    Toothless Checkout Clerk Wins $258 Million Powerball Jackpot

    LOL, pretty tacky title by Fox News. I hate to say it, but his dental problems strongly suggest a history of meth abuse...

    FOXNews.com - Toothless Checkout Clerk Wins $258 Million Powerball Jackpot



    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.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that he'll be broke in about 10 years.
    I hope I'm wrong.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If he is a meth head, I expect he will be dead in 10 years

    $258 million can buy a lot of meth

    I don't know if he is but I'm almost guaranteed that money will be pissed away on frivolous things like flashy cars, homes and other bs.
    Not to mention what he'll probably give his friends and family.

    Makes me wish we were related.

    What do you all think of Fox's headliner? Pretty unclassy of them to include his dental status in their headline, I thought.

    Naturally, he says in the article that he's not sure if he'll quit his job, lol. It sounds like such a fulfilling 'career'...

    Is that some sort of requirement when when winning the lottery, to say that you won't quit your low paying, low status, mind numbingly tedious and repetitive job?

    It's the psychology of it.

    They guy got the money by being irresponsible with money(buying a lottery ticket).
    Chances of him keeping it are low.
