GreatGlavinsGhost: RichieLaw: GreatGlavinsGhost: Sylvia_Bandersnatch if you're on, I have an idea: could you come up with an alternate opening statement for the donation site? It may be easier for RichieLaw to change it, if he has a definite something to change it to.Here's mine:(It may have to start with "Buy Vice President Biden a TransAm", so I'm keeping that)Buy Vice President Biden a TransAmHelp us raise $25,000 for charity by recreating the internet meme of Joe Biden with a Trans Am in the White House driveway.It's been changed for several days now: Help us raise $25,000 to buy Joe Biden a gift from the American people as awesome as he is... a vintage Pontiac Trans Am (to be sold for charity).I saw that. The charity aspect seems to be an afterthought (to me anyway). I just thought that since Sylvia was suggesting a change, that maybe she had a specific change in mind.
kumanoki: You sound like a pretty knowledgable guy about this type of vehicle. I'd love to get your input as to how we can make the effort work on the charity/ gearhead end of things. I would imagine that we're pushing 30 years on the specific make of vehicle, and that's got to be getting close to classic, right?
WalMartian: halfof33: Odoriferous Queef: "Twitter is a communication tool used the world over where people can come together to biatch about movies and share pornography with one another. Moreover, a a twitterbomb is when many people focus on one person's twitter feed, causing it to be filled with the same information from several different sources."So you're saying it's SPAM.That was what i was thinking.I agree, too. If I were someone getting multiple tweets about the same thing from a bunch of people, it would piss me off and I'd ignore it.
kumanoki: Are we doing a Wednesday thread, or are we using this thread as home base for the time being? I plan to pull together some more people to tweet today. If SarahDiddle has access to the list, I'd love to get her input. Also, anyone else who has ideas on who to bomb, let me know. We can rotate through the list of TV stations; we can retweet people we've hit up before. i just need about eight or nine suggestions to create the list for today.
WalMartian: We need to find a way to kick this in the butt; interest seems to be waning.
serial_crusher: So, the whole thing here is you can't actually give him the car because of his position as Vice President, but what if he hypothetically doesn't get re-elected (hey, there's still hope for Gary Johnson to win, right? right?)? I guess the nice thing to do would still be to auction the car off, but you could legally give it to him after that, right?Alternatively, how cool would it be if Biden went all out and bought the car in the auction, with his own money?

serial_crusher: dickfreckle: This is a humorous, meme-y way to leave the world a little better than you found it. And that, my brothers and sisters, is the meaning of life. There, I've settled the age-old question for you where philosophers have failed.I haven't donated yet. I don't like that some of the money is going to GLAAD (not because I have anything against gay people, but I don't think GLAAD is addressing a pressing enough issue that they need my money).Anyhow, I think for things that support multiple charities like this, donors should be presented with some checkboxes saying where their share of the money should go. I'd gladly donate to the other 3 charities.
