The original Ask HN post he speaks about is probably a lie anyway. But that doesn't make it a good conversation starter.

"I'm a 20 year old guy who sold his company last month for $5m in cash. I really don't know what to do with the money or how to manage it. I never gave it a thought and now suddenly I have $5m."

You'd think he'd be smart enough, given he's just made $5m at 20. No further comments left by radicaltype either.

I doubt it's a lie. what would be the motivation? There's very little trolling on HN. I see no reason to doubt its authenticity.

Do you have showdead on? Do you scroll to the bottom of every post? It seems like every third post has garnered a squadron of useless flip replies that sit at -4 or dead. A troll post of this variety is almost on the level of effort of the one word "yes" and "no" posts that show up when the headline is a question.


For argument's sake, what single founder (male, 20) sold their company (assuming it was a website) for $5m last month? Shouldn't that be publicized? Even if it's not, the guy is likely full of it.
