Kumana Wanalaia: Cyclometh, your second comment in the photoshop thread is hidden because it's a non voting comment in a voting thread. Maybe Unfreakable can force it visible, or amend it to your boobies?


I'm seeing it, but the reason you're probably not is that you don't have comment preferences enabled. To do that go to the Preferences tab in your profile, scroll down to comment preferences and put a tick in the box next to "In contest threads (Photoshop, Farktopgraphy, captions, etc), see regular comments as well as contest entries", then click on "save prefs".

That should fix it.

"We did not reach our goal of 25,000 dollars, oh well. Have a nice day."


Then they'll just have to settle for buying a old Transam at it's normal price...

Hey, I'm checking in from my buddy's place. Did someone post something for a separate forum to discuss this in or something? I've missed most of the conversation today, but I don't really have time to read through it all right now.

Cyclometh:
Q: Are you really going to give Joe Biden a Trans Am?
A: Not really. First, he's the Vice President and it wouldn't be cool for him to accept it, although we believe he legally could.

Q: OK... so what ARE you going to do with the Trans Am?
A: Ideally, we're going to buy the car, get it to Washington, D.C. and hopefully get Joe Biden to do a photo op with it- and maybe even sign it! Whether or not that works out, we'll be auctioning the Trans Am and the proceeds will be donated to four charities.


So it's called Give Joe the Bird. Then you don't give it to him. Bottom line: What if he falls in love with it and actually wants it?

What a perfect opportunity for Joe to match the 25 thou.

Bad PR at this point. He won't keep it, but I dig the jib of your jorts.

This.

I was wondering this as well. We should probably change that a little bit. It might get confusing otherwise. Because from what I looked up, he CAN legally accept this car. I don't know that he will, or that he will keep it in place of auctioning it off, but we're kind of painting our self in the corner. My friend asked me "What if he keeps it?" and I didn't really have an answer.

I don't see that happening, especially since he's aware or will be made aware of the charities the auction proceeds will go to. Even if he did, I think it's safe to safe that he would match the $25,000.

If the Democratic strategists keep him in the loop, I think it'd be great PR for him to actually buy it at the auction.

I just realized that each color of shirt would probably have to be a separate order.

I don't think we can get the per shirt price for 100 shirts if we want 5 white, 5 black, 5 red, etc

But presumably you could get the per good price if you ordered 5 small, 5 medium, 5 large, etc. I don't see shirt color as being much different than shirt size. I used to order blank shirts to print on from a wholesaler and I could order X number of White/Small, Y number of Red/Med and Z number of Grey/XL all on one order and the price point was based on total number of shirts.

Since this is a printer, not a wholesaler, they may do things differently. But if we're ordering 100+ shirts... they ought to work with us.

Just wanted to take a second to thank everybody involved, for their efforts: Cyclometh, Hack Patooey, RichieLaw, coyagie, and of course Unfreakable and Drew. Hopefully this shiat goes mega-viral in the next couple days. I've already donated and gotten one of the sites already listed to write about it, and If I can afford it, I'll be in for a t-shirt as well. I want to see Joe washing that Bird in the WH driveway wearing a BFD t-shirt with nutsack squirrel on it. That would be the best thing evar!

I know, it's not going to happen, but we can dream, can't we?

I've never seen so many people work so hard for $5k (in the United States) but you have to give it to them, it's FUNNY!

I'm 100% behind them (except the whole cash thing) and I do hope they get a little airplay -- they deserve it. And most of all, Biden deserves it.

Also, I feel so useless during these things. By the time I think of anything useful and post it, four other people are already talking about how to improve on it since they've already been talking about it for 20 minutes.

I used to lead a Weapons crew, but now I can't lead a Caterday on the internet even if my upvote counted on it!

No worries, just do the best you can; and who cares if someone said something similar to what you were/did/are about to say. That's part of the beauty of the internet, after all :)

Yeah, it's just that I wish I could contribute somehow. I think it's just a self-conscious thing since I was discharged from the military. I'm still super-stoked to see this taking off, and how well everyone is doing it. I just miss being effective and working with a team.

Plus, anyone would feel like a dork making four separate suggestions, each on a different occasion, only to find out all of them have been recently reference! Haha, self-inflicted facepalm!
