lol, I don't think they're cultural values at all - the average russian person definitely would have accepted the money, since they were as surprised as we were about it. it sure as hell makes the russians look good, though.

Him turning down the money shows that not only he didn't think it was fair to take such money for something he wasn't 100% responsible for, but also to make a point that he didn't need that much money to live life, which is true for ANY culture. There's a fine line between wants and needs, and it seemed that he was certainly living well enough off of his needs and didn't need to satisfy his wants (which are basically just materialistic things that no one really needs in the first place).

Lots of people live like this. And it was certainly awesome for him to do that because of the current state Russia is in right now.

Here's a question, if he thought it wasn't fair, why didn't he accept it, and give all or most to Hamilton? What purpose does just saying no serve? If he's so brilliant, he can't think of a brilliant unselfish purpose for $1 Million? This guy is just being "too cool for school" imo.

Holy shit brotato, I read the full article, and the whole thread. Did not see why he wouldn't give the money to Hamilton anywhere...trust me, you don't have to worry about whether or not I read shit, I do my due diligence always. Why don't you wipe Dwight Howards jizz from your eyes and read my questions again?

Lol, how the fuck does not accepting a REWARD have anything to do with intelligence? The guy solved a math problem that no one in the world could solve. It doesn't even matter if there is a certain amount of money that can compensate such an accomplishment - though I don't think you can put a price on something like that - because he clearly sees the accomplishment itself as the reward.

I don't believe that ethnicity and culture have to directly correlate. I mean, sure, they most certainly do a lot of the time, but it's not a necessity.
