Did Kickstarter recently relax their requirements on projects that can seek funding? I am seeing more scams and perpetual motion machines.

No, the chicken is actually pretty shiatty.

I've been noticing that as well. It's kinda like Fark and the wishlist whores. Like whatherface from awhile back..

Came with similar question, I think this would fall under the "fund my life" part, which is not allowed

I think they simply stopped vetting projects and wait for complaints to roll in. I recall there was a project recently that got completely funded and Kickstarter got the complaints basically 24 hours before it closed on its own.
Then there was a video game project that ran for a long time before anyone realized all the screenshots were taken from an existing obscure game.
And then of course, http://www.theonion.com/video/internet-scam-alert-most-kickstarter-pr o jects-just,28655/

It's a rice burrito, just like everything else on their menu. Add underripe guacamole and you're all set.

The problem is they get a cut of everything they approve, so their level of oversight has gotten more and more lax. Look at the millionaire venture capitalist who wanted money to send her daughter to "video game camp," despite the fact that the rules preclude funding lifestyles or education. Look at the all the shady video game developers that flagrantly created fake backers in order to create the illusion of popularity so they could bilk OUYA out of matching funds (not that OUYA didn't deserve it). Look at the Doobie's Dogs fiasco. Unless something is a flagrant and undeniable scam, no volume of reports will generate a response. The official guidelines don't mean anything anymore.

I use kickstarter to give money to girls to buy video games so they can say that there aren't enough girl protagonists in the video games. It's worth it because it makes me feel enlightened, and you can't put a price on that.

The best part about that is that Anita Sarkeesian already owned all of the games she photographed herself with after the conclusion of the kickstarter, and her ignorance of them evident in her videos (as well as all the stolen gameplay footage) suggests she never even played them anyway. But, y'know. Crying about video games is what this generation thinks of as striking a blow against injustice.

The only fast food Mexican worse than Chipotle is Baja Fresh, Taco Bell, and Del Taco. Well, there are probably more, but those are the only fast food Mexican places I've ever heard of.

My local Freebirds is actually very decent. Most of the employees are silly alternative girls. Hot-ish, but sadly most are on the chunker side.

Judging by the tattoos, clothes, glasses and Betty Page hairstyles(all used to poorly disguise they're tens of pounds heavier than betty page, and that fat tits do no equal big tits), I'd imagine the most of them handle more cock than burritos. Free side of herpes with any purchase of any Hybird or greater.

I may start a kickstarter in order to pay someone to go to this guys house and kick him in the nuts. He's probably on of those idiots that uses change.org for idiot stuff too.

Fun fact:

I'm currently sitting on the toilet crapping my brains out AND vomiting into the sink as the result of a bad chicken burrito.

I find this less than amusing...

The only thing the nearest chipotle does right is the guac. And I don't even know if it is made there. I thought it was going to be this great thing but when I eat there I get that sick feeling just like I do when I eat at McDonalds.

Looks like the Fark food snob brigade is on the job again. I swear, if you listen to morons around here you'd never eat anywhere.

Personally I think they're mostly trolls who live in their moms basement stuffing their face with ramen noodles and PB&J sandwiches.

Guys, guys, obviously we can tell that Chipotle is both excellent and horrible, which leads me to believe that Chipotle is inconsistent.   Everyone who loves it magically goes on the good days, and the people who hate it go only on the bad days.

Chipotle is OK.

Anyone who says otherwise is OK, too. Except that one guy, he's a twat.

You know who you are.

You have this on backwards.  The people that think Chipotle is awesome are the ones stuck in their mom's basement jacking it to Star Trek erotic fan fiction.  Waddle off to somewhere good for once.

There's a simple reason for the disagreements. The fact is, they have expanded really fast and if you go to one place, the food might be fresh and hot and properly prepared, and in another place it might be awful, with everything cold and congealed and over/undercooked and in the wrong proportions. The first time I went to one several years ago, it was the most amazing thing ever (yes it was chicken), but because my first experience kept me coming back, I've put up with quite a few lousy burritos.

The best chicken burrito is from here, however:
