Pretty upsetting story

Dunno if you've heard this, but this guy won a trip to space by answering these questions on some website. Apparently, this guy is huge into space travel and has been ever since he was a kid.

Unfortunately, he had to give up his seat on the space shuttle due to the fact that he'd have to report this little trip of his to the IRS and he'd have to pay taxes on it.

What crap..

Guy loses his chance to go into space

If I were rich I'd give this guy a check. Meanwhile some dumb ***** is probably going to spend that much money tomorrow just on clothing or a ****ing purse.

It's ****ing disgusting. Sorry if I'm taking things a little overboard. I travel to Hollywood and the Sunset blvd area constantly because my girl friend lives there so I get to see these types of uptight jerk offs all the time. Walking around showing off all the money they have, sure they don't work for it, they just get to spend it all.

Re: Pretty upsetting story

Anytime you win anything tho you have to pay taxes on it. My friend won a cruise and had to come up with money to pay taxes on it.
