    I can’t remember the guy’s name, but around 1979-1980, an American won the Irish Sweeps and was put in jail for refusing to pay the taxes on it to the IRS.

    Typical of the USA; it has probably cost them 5X the "tax due" on legal proceedings and maintaining him incarcerated for a few years. :rolleyes:

    Going back ON TOPIC, no...I would be just as arrogant.

    After I finished tithing some of that big money, then split the rest of it up between my family and all my siblings...it wouldn't be big money anymore and I would still be the same me as I always have been. :)
