This is everything wrong with the U.S.

STEM majors struggle to get money through school, get PhD's, become physicians, but we'll spend $8K- worth tuition and living expenses for a student for a semester, on potato salad.

You'll get more out of the potato salad than you will out of most college degrees.

Instead of putting onions or chives in the potato salad, just put onion rings.

You're coming at this from the wrong direction.  People with extra cash are funny and self-serving.

Someone should make a kickstarter campaign to put a girl through school, and specifically work on one school and one thing, like breast cancer or colon cancer.  Brand the experience and come up with a catchy name, and float it out there.

That will get all the STEM you want.  For instance; kickstarter campaign for a high school robot club to destroy or build something.  One small specific thing, and see if anyone bites.

I mean, potato salad for fks sake.

Hi, I'd like to smoke some pork shoulder, who would like to chip in for some delicious pulled pork?  If donations get high enough I'll let you choose from vinegar, mustard, or brown sauces.  If donations get even higher, after I take my 40% cut, I'll buy kegs of beer.   Higher?  Hookers and blow.

No. Star Citizen is everything wrong with the U.S.

Basically, every million they raise CRoberts will add a new item into a game that doesn't even exist. So far he has made $47,670,251.

That's right, people have "donated" $47.6m for a game that doesn't, and most likely will never, exist.

It's a bit sad that something silly like this can get funded to that degree. My wife and I started a fundraiser for our adoption, and we've gotten a good response (a few thousand bucks) but nothing like this. It's a bit sad. There are so many things that kind of money could go towards. I have no particular hatred for potato salad, mind you, I just find that people are more motivated by flippant humor than they are by caring for the world around them. On the other hand, what's life without a little silly fun, amiright?

Re-do it.   Replace the word "Child" with "Potato Salad" wherever it appears.

"My wife and I are looking to adopt a potato salad.  Due to medical issues, we are unable to have a potato salad of our own.  There are many potato salads looking for a good home, and we'd like to provide a home to one of these many, desperate potato salads, if you are the parent or guardian of a potato salad, then you can imagine what it would be like to remain potato saladless..."

I have some potato salad left over from the 4th.  I also have the fryer out and ready to cook, also as a result of the 4th.

I will attempt this tonight and report back on my results.

At this moment there are 1,333 1,336 backers with $9,166 raised.  That's just under 7 bucks per person.  That's less than a movie for some entertainment value.  I don't get the outrage.

Mustard is for hot dogs and soft pretzels.

Mayo, apple cider vinegar, worcestershire, onion and garlic powder, salt and pepper

/Why yes, I did make a nice batch of potato salad over the weekend
//Potato, egg, celery, green onion
///Pro tip: if the sauce tastes "just right" before you mix it into the salad, it is woefully underseasoned
