KatjaMouse: Huh. He actually sold out of one of the offered perks. Now there are people lamenting in the comments how they wanted to kick in $50 for a shirt and bumper sticker.

I was going to wait until I got home to contribute, until I realized how close they were to even running out of the photos. I don't even care about a damn 8x10 photo, I could print one of my own, but wait, you mean I might not get one if I wait?!

The Third Man: I like the idea of a Tesla Museum but I want to see it in Niagara Falls, seeing as:

1. Tesla's best idea which came to fruition--tapping the Falls for cheap clean electric power--still works every day;
2. Millions of tourists from all over the world come to Niagara Falls as it is;
3. All the stuff on the American side is cheap touristy stuff, the Tesla museum would be a real honest draw;
4. We've already got the Tesla statue, which is cool enough in its own right that last time I was there I saw a line several people deep just wanting to take a picture of it;
5. Look man, Tesla is cool. Niagara Falls is cool. And da Falls hasn't exactly had a great run economically of late, which not only means we need it, it means we can build it cheaper.

Silly Americans and charging money to see the falls from the crappy side. Come to the Canadian side for actual fun tourist traps, water parks, 2 casinos, and the best view of the falls for free.

MrEricSir: Funny how Elon Musk is always described as the "founder" of Tesla and PayPal. I mean, the "found" part is right, the "er" not so much.

I've been watching it since it got on Fark yesterday. Three perks sold out and one about to. That said from what I can tell it's at least slowed down a bit. But hey, I'm sure more geeks will get paychecks soon and this will finish well, WELL before the 45 day clock.

If they're smart they'll increase the limit or start a second limit that will fund the museum itself.

/I hope they rebuild the skeletal tower
//I'll probably donate again in a few weeks

I behold the power of oatmeal every day, a couple hours after breakfast. Or maybe it's the coffee.

"Elan Musk" would be either a great or terrible porn name.
