Two lucky winning tickets were sold in Tuesday's near-record $636 million Mega Millions drawing: one at a tiny newsstand in Atlanta, and the other more than 2,000 miles away in California. The California ticket was sold at Jenny's Gift Shop, which sits along San Jose's tree-lined Tully Road, amid a cluster of Asian restaurants. The store's owner, Thuy Nguyen, says he doesn't know who the bought the winning ticket, but it's likely someone he knows, as most of his customers are his friends. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)
