Pocket Ninja: Fine, I'm in for a t-shirt.
BarkingUnicorn: I'm gonna laugh when this car sells at auction for less than it costs.
Pocket Ninja: BarkingUnicorn: I'm gonna laugh when this car sells at auction for less than it costs.Hm. That's a very good point, and I'm glad you brought it up. This would have forced me to reconsider my contribution, but now that I've already made it I'm forced to deal with the very real possibility of not realizing an economic gain in this investment. I think what we're going to need to do here, alongside the overall donation campaign, is organize a letter-writing effort to our congressmen and senators. What I'm proposing a Joe Biden TransAm Stablization ACT (JBTASA), which will invest public dollars into the auction effort to ensure that a price equitable to all shareholders is received. There are, literally, hundreds of investors right now, and when we start getting up into those numbers we're talking about a possible economy of scale that could prove devastating. It's one thing if I lose my $25; what if all those other people do, too? Congress must act now to ensure that the combined negative effects of this unrealized investment do not spiral us into another recession.
Benevolent Misanthrope: Unlike banks, Fark does not own enough Senators and Congresspsersons for this.
Delay: BarkingUnicorn: I'm gonna laugh when this car sells at auction for less than it costs.As it stands now the proceeds will go to 4 charities. Simple math, suppose the car sells at auction for less than $25K. No big deal. Some of us posting here can assure that will not happen. We know the risk but the charities get the reward.What if the car sells for more. Much more. If your brave offer still stands, double your donation to laugh. Go on, you can do it. Pledge now.

cretinbob: Just think what we could do if you know, we did something worthwhile instead.I've been busting my ass trying to get funding to expand something, but by all means, let's do some totally useless shiat.

Pocket Ninja: Wait, wait, wait. Can't Joe Biden afford to buy his own TransAm? I mean, the guy's, like, vice president and stuff.Oh, but maybe if Joe Biden gets re-elected, he'll look at the list of people who helped buy him a biatchin' new car and will reconsider adding those individuals to those pending an appearance before an ACA death panel. Hm. It can't hurt to cover one's bases.Fine, I'm in for a t-shirt. But if I still end up in some sort of re-education camp or something, I'm gonna be pissed.
Bathia_Mapes: Donating money to four very worthy charities is useless shiat?
cretinbob: Bathia_Mapes: Donating money to four very worthy charities is useless shiat?OK, Now I read the words.Yeah, I can be a dick sometimes, and this is one of them.

Just assuming we're doing this for the lulz, which we're not.Well, partially for the lulz in that we're trying to recreate an article from The Onion. :-D
GWSuperfan: I am willing to do another update on either Thursday or Friday for Patch. I'm already 2 of their 5 featured blog posts, so I don't want to spam them.I think I'm going to post something about local politics on Wed so that they don't think that I'm only all about the #GiveJoeTheBird thing.FWIW: the local editor (one of my neighbors) is very supportive, and has tweeted both of my blog posts so far from their official twitter account, and made the first one the Featured Article for part of a day.
GreatGlavinsGhost: Cool. Can you post the link to your blog?
Cyclometh: I was unable to get to recording the VO for the new piece tonight- but I will be doing so right after work tomorrow. I had some paying gigs to take care of first. :/

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: Morning all, darn I missed GGG by an hour..I think coeyagi is scarce till the end of the weekend now? We were going to donate 1 dollar for every lie at the debate to GJTB.If we use politifact, are half true statements $0.50 ?
Hack Patooey: Morning folks....

beenjammin: You know, when I started on Friday my Twitter account had a history of 8 tweets in it over the course of its entire existence. And all those tweets were more or less over the same period of time, right when it was made, to support the Green Movement in Iran.I've got 185 now. with more to come. You guys managed to get me pumped up again over something silly and fun. And, unlike the Iranian incident, this is extremely unlikely to fill my life with terror and extreme personal danger. I love you guys. This shiat is awesome.Sleepy time now!
