  • img1.fark.net Really? She willingly paid the taxes she owed, and gave lots to charity. And she still has more money than she will ever need. I think the tag you should be looking for is img1.fark.net.
  • I came in here to biatch about people who are given ungodly amounts of money and blow it all on a ridiculous lifestyle, but then I read

    Dinki: She willingly paid the taxes she owed, and gave lots to charity. And she still has more money than she will ever need.


    So yeah, good on her. The fact that she is paying her share of the taxes she owes instead of weaseling out of them puts her ahead of most uber-rich US folks, including certain presidential candidates.
  • Honestly, I don't really care as long as she stays richer than Stephenie Meyer.

  • FTA: She apparently broke a few rules of how to stay rich by giving away a lot of her fortune - reportedly $160 million of it - to charity and by paying her top-rung British taxes.

    This is what a decent human being looks like.
  • I thought she was supposed to be working on Harry Potter for grown-ups now or something.

    But she's a terrible job creator.

    Daniel Radcliffe would disagree ;)
  • I'm glad she turned over her earnings to its rightful owner, the UK government.

    John Lennon, however, was a selfish ass for moving to the tax shelter called America.

    She is in fact working on an "adult" version.

    "Hairy Cooter And The Deathly Hollows."

    It's scheduled to hit theaters at about the same time as the all male "Lord Of The Cock Rings".
  • How on earth did she get rich writing such derivative trash? Wasn't there already an overload of hack literature for children?

    I've actually had people tell me that Harry Potter is superior to A Song of Ice and Fire, which makes me wonder if the human race deserves to continue....

    THIS -a billion times this.
  • So where do we send the donations?

    Harry Potter isn't really my bag and I can't speak to the quality of the books but she got rich because through the movies she made a lot of other people rich. No one in their right mind would think that guys deserve million dollar contracts for throwing a ball around but if it makes even more money for the team owners then the ball throwers deserve it. That's only fair. The quality of her writing has nothing to do with it.

    Luna Lovegood and Hermione slash fiction?

    She's a former welfare mom with some depression issues, who figured out a way to become a successful writer and you have an issue with this? Jeebus, she should have never written that trash and just stayed on the dole instead.

    /I'm all for paying what is due, but since she wrote the books she is the rightful owner of any and all money she made off them

    Uh, the Harry Potter books are actually pretty well-written, dude. Also, if you're going to complain about literature not getting its due, you could choose a better book to make your stand with than A Song of Ice and Fire.

    /Not a huge Harry Potter fan, but read the books and they are pretty thoughtful and nicely-plotted.

    You sound trolly. Good job, you got a couple bites.

    BTW, if you really want some hack YA crap to criticize, you should check out the Twilight series since you seem to enjoy having something to be pissed off about. At least that resulting rage would be justified.

    Not to mention thanks to her stories, whether you like them or not, she has paid back a brazillian times more than she ever took while on the dole. How many can say that?
