NICE?? He called a bunch of people retards... WTF?
I believe what he said was "some people go retarded with that kind of money".
That statement doesn't make me think he is not nice. You and I say worse things than that about people on this forum and you know it.
Why are you so eager to criticize that one relatively harmless statement?
I said he seems nice and so far I still think that.
You know what else? He's right. A lot of people do go retarded with that kind of money. I hope he doesn't.

Question. After the State takes theirs, How much will he be left with?
I'm not 100% sure but I think the state and federal taxes amount to about 35%. No matter what though, he should have atleast 10M to be his free and clear.

Yes, and his statement that he's going to go play some video games makes me think he's a sound decision maker. Retarded indeed!

I'm sure he played video games before he won the money, as many other kids his age does.
