    I'm going to grow a peanut. How much funds can I generate for that?

    BTW, do you have a direct link to the potato salad Kickstarter? I want to pledge $20.

    Yeah, I remember that, he wanted money just for himself to kick-start "his life".

    Anyway, this potato salad Kickstarter is one of the funniest things I've seen all month.

    Yes... I thought I had included it too... will update first post but here:

    Also... It's now 4.6 grand. It's kind of sad that legitimate book, video, and game content that asks for a pittance like 5k can wind up going unfunded... and this... this inexplicably will get 36 THOUSAND at the rate it is going, according to Kicktraq: Potato Salad by Zack Danger Brown :: Kicktraq

    Pahaha! This is brilliant.
    It's also worth noting the goal was only $10:
    I get the idea this was an experiment gone very much out of control :lol

    I should start a Kickstarter page.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the site makes it that as soon as the project is funded, the pledge is over.

    Why would they do that? Kickstarter makes 5% of the total funding so by stopping the funding after the target amount is reached then that limits Kickstarters profit.
