I'd appreciate if a new youtube account was created and the video posted there. You can pull it down from Youtube, RichieLaw?

Good idea, and somebody tweet Aziz Ansari. He's a tweeting fool and could connect this to LOTS of people.

RichieLaw: Big snip.


I was going to bed. Then Mrs. Spldng requested an 11 o'clock chocolate run to the store. And I had to see what was happening. Thanks for the response Ritchie. One thing to consider is how to handle title and insurance on the vehicle prior to auctioning it off. If all it ever does is get trucked around on a flatbed, you may not have to insure it at all.

Just raising points so no one gets burned ~ not trying to cause trouble.

Just got back, had to take a nap- this is incredible, though.

No kidding. Money doubled to over 4K while I was gone. Freaking amazing

Awesome job Hack, How do you think we can get the next 4K?

I have no clue. This would have not happened if RichieLaw hadnt set up the site, nor everyone else in the thread throwing ideas in the pot. Organizing this kind of stuff is way beyond my comfort zone...

DingleberryMoose: Girion47: nvmac: html_007: SO the big question here.... Should the TA be a manual or automatic?

OH, you've done it now. You've started the manual vs. automatic flame war.

/God help us all

Automatic is the AOL of the auto world.

Automobiles with automatic transmissions should only be legally sold to someone with a prescription for one due to the permanent loss of the use of a limb.


When they were in college, my brother and a friend went on a ski trip. My brother hurt his leg. I don't remember now whether it was a break or a sprain or what, but it was bad enough that he couldn't drive. So he asked his friend to drive them home -- at which point the friend admitted that he couldn't drive stick.

Personally, if US states put on a driver license that the bearer needs glasses, or give a special endorsement that says the bearer knows how to ride a motorcycle, why isn't "can't drive stick" on there?

Minarets: I_Love_Cheesecake: Someone on Twitter just tweeted the story to GLAAD, which makes me wonder: do the other charities know what's going on with this fundraiser?

I tagged gladd, doctors with borders, and wounder warriors on one of my tweets. No twitter information for bbhi that I could find.


I emailed BBHI about this but it bounced. Their website seems to be having problems.

Has anyone contacted bbhi, gladd, doctors without borders, and wounder warriors and gotten a response? They really ought to know about this. And somebody needs to contact BBHI.

Some states still have that restriction, but I don't know of any that still actually use it. At one point in time, if you didn't take your road test in a stick shift, you were automatically slapped with the restriction.

JusticeandIndependence: cryophile: Jesus, why does everyone's vagina get all drippy over this guy?

They don't really love him -- the ironically love him.

I doubt Biden would get it either. I'm sure his people are doing everything they can to keep him away from this. When asked about the Onion article, a while back, he got a little defensive about it -- ""Do you really think I'd drive an '81 Trans Am?"

Try explaining Fark or The Onion to your grandfather who doesn't use the Internet and doesn't understand absurd humor. 

Personally I love this. I've wasted a few hours on it today. Maybe I should donate... hmmm....

My nephew just saw your post and said you were a turd burglar for trying to make other people feel bad for finding a silly but fun way to raise money for charity.

An 8 year old gets it, so why don't you?

Just a heads up... but those of you unfamiliar with web traffic... I'd expect visits/donations/etc to drop off over the weekend and pick up again around 8am Eastern on Monday.

Save some of your energy for Monday and don't get discouraged if you don't see massive action over the weekend (other than perhaps some news mentions as an aside). Apparently, folks prefer to hit the web hard and heavy from work rather than at their leisure (days off).

I can't stand Joe Biden, but I like the lulz and the charity aspect. It's the only reason I'm helping with this ridiculous idea in the first place. That and I've been around a few websites in my time.

RichieLaw: Update: received a very nice message from indiegogo congratulating us on our success over the past hours and offering to help in any way they can. They also suggested delineating what we will do with the monies should we not reach our goal. When I get home I will update the pitch stating that all monies in excess of the Trans Am purchase, expenses and delivery will be split amongst the 4 charities pro rata. Should we not receive enough money to buy a Trans Am, the monies will still be split amongst the charities pro rata.

If any of you have suggestions for anything other than this please let me know now.

Cheers guys! Almost at $5,000!!!11


Excellent, Ritchie.
Mission statement. What are our goals and objectives?
1To enhance and enjoy an existing internet meme.
2 To encourage the participation of a certain elected official in achieving item 1, because he's a good sport.
3 To encourage the participation of as many individuals as possible to join in this endeavor.
4 To raise funds; first to achieve item 1 and then ultimately to provide several worthy charities with funds.
5 And to enjoy ourselves.
No Profit, no glory. Does this cover it?

Cottage Cheesecake: This may be the dumbest thing on Fark, ever. This used to be a really cool site, now it is nothing but Reddit Lite...nothing but homogenous groupthink, with barely a flicker of individual creativity anymore. It is sad, really.


Ummm I've been lurking here since the millenium and a member for quite a while. New things come, old things go. It used to not be news, but Fark.com. Now its real news or something. Photoshop contests used to have 10 entries. Then they had 50. Now they have less again.

But you know what? The squirrel still has giant nuts. HUUUUUUUGE nuts. So have a beer if that's your fancy. Or a ginger ale, that's my fancy. Just have fun and don't worry about the semantics.
