Submission Perelman Urged To Accept $1m Prize->

krou writes: The Warm Home charity in St. Petersburg, Grigory Perelman's home-town, has urged the math genius and recluse to accept the $1m Millennium Prize for solving the Poincaré conjecture, and donate it to charities. Perelman has refused to accept the award, telling one reporter through the closed door of his flat, "I have all I want", and another who managed to call him on his mobile, "You are disturbing me. I am picking mushrooms."
