So what to do with $239 million. One month after the drawing of the winning numbers, a retired truck driver has come forward to claim sole-possession of the prize. This begs the question...What were you doing for the past month? According to the truck driver of the payout "It didn't excite me all that much. It's no big thing to me." Well heck, since it is no big deal....I'll take it off your hands! The winner would be allowed to take the $239 million in 26 annual payments of $9.19 million before taxes or a lump sum of $141.5 million before taxes. GULP!
