Crowd Funding
« on: March 21, 2014, 11:52:46 AM »
I came up with an idea yesterday when I found out Fred Phelps died yesterday (Wednesday?).

How about a 'hitstarter' site similar to 'kickstarter'.

That way if someone needs a few bucks, they can check the 'hitstarter' site and make a 'hit' in order to get the funds.

No more than $10 per account.

Others can counter-fund the site to stop the 'hit'.

Levels would be:

Black Eye

Lost Tooth

Torn Ear

Broken [something]

Removed [something]

Level 1 Beating

Level 2 Beating

Level 3 Beating

Unconscious

Taken for a Ride (an actual ride, walk back from the outskirts of town)

Taken for a Ride (the other ride).

:D

Well... this is certainly an idea I'd watch. You have no idea what I'd do for extra cash at this point...

The mystery box doesn't have any body parts with for sale tags on them does it?

Hmm. Now when I say, "I know a guy....", I really do. Spiffy.

I don't want to talk about it, and Marc isn't allowed to talk about what's in the box. It's not Gwyneth Paltrow's head.

That is in the $11 box. Heads are surprisingly big.

Matt... I said I don't want to talk about it. And you'd be surprised where a head will fit after a few minutes in a Quisenart.

Sorry. I thought it was the rest of her you didn't want to talk about.

A big enough colander could reduce the volume.
