Did he turn around and share it with the wait staff, or is that only a one-way street?

Given that his daughter was just diagnosed with cancer, I would think the rest of the staff would be okay with him taking it all.

Given that he wrote the check out directly the to owner, I'm guessing the staff wasn't expecting to collect.

Tipper won $25 million lottery prize.  His goal seems to be giving the money away; he shows up randomly at charities with his checkbook. Also gave a mil to pot legalization group.

That would be one of the best parts of winning the lottery.  Get my family and friends set up decently, upgrade my house a notch, set up finances for life, that stuff is great.  But being able to come across people in need and actually make a personal difference would be pretty sweet.

The trick is to be able to come across them at your pleasure, not theirs.  It would suck if the whole world could easily find your deep pockets.  Some States allow winners to remain anonymous.  Others allow partial protection of IDs, such as publishing the name of a trust and making people search for the trust's beneficiaries.

Tipping an owner is bad etiquette. In this case, the headline writer used the word 'tip' to simplify a more nuanced transaction.

Is headlinese still necessary? Does an internet headline writer still need to be deft with t, i, f, j and l?

I've noticed a tendency for online headlines to grow longer, making it almost unnecessary to read the story.  That wasn't the original purpose of headlines.

There should be a Fark End of the Year Category for Most Misleading Headline. The $10,000 was in regards to help the owner visit his daughter, who was just diagnosed with cancer. Wasn't like the dude was just tipping the owner for the hell of it. At least the Spiffy Tag is on the money.

The downside would be all the scam artists and parasites looking for an easy payday, calling you and flooding your mailbox/email non-stop with "Can't Lose!" offers, phony charities, and fake sob stories. Not to mention a bunch of distant relatives and former friends coming to get a piece of the action.

wonder if there's any way around having to declare that as taxable income... the banks will at least note the $10k cheque...

That the problem with this being a news story I imagine he could try to hide it otherwise now the irs will probably know and want its take for its next star trek video

Who do you think donates the majority of the money?

Pro tip - it's rich people.
