4. Taxes are robbery. You should give all your money to Republican candidates...

...in order to save it from being taken away from the Taxocrats and given to those retired freeloaders or wasted on educating the so-called future generations.

11. 18500 rounding the change up. Feds take a quarter in tax.

I won 25K about 5 years ago just in time for a week cross-country "see Grandpa before he dies" /family funeral trip. Paid off a crap load of medical bills, credit cards, fixed the car, and put 5K in a CD just in case the tax implications were unfavorable. We didn't need to, but that's still a good way of ensuring all the money doesn't get spent during that year.

I've been playing the lottery for years, and still haven't won a single cent. Spend that money wisely..

15. Congratulations!

I was expecting you to say that you won a hundred dollars or something. $25,000 is a lot of money. That is a years salary to many people. I would pay off some bills, put some in savings and buy myself something special.
