Reclusive mathematician says 'thanks, but no thanks' to that million dollar prize 

It takes a special kind of crazy to turn down 1 million dollars in the form of a mathematics grant… especially a grant that you earned… even more especially because you earned it for solving a problem that has been bothering mathematicians for over 100 years.  My hat goes off to you Grigori Perelman.  You are very special.
