We discussed this past weekend the finer points of Porno Mike starting a kickstarter so's he can stay home and do man shit at the house, (such as lawn care, burning shit, and repairing broken things)without his old lady giving him the 'get a job' talk. Seems worthy, but that's just one man's opinion. If we put a gopro on him we'd be fucking millionaires.

I like it . . . not necessarily these projects in particular, but the idea of it.

Like a modern day system of patronage, where benefactors can help causes, projects,etc. that they support, so people can do cool shit . . . and if you ain't into it don't send them cash . . . nice and simple really.

Gofundme, and Kickstarter are revolutionizing funding for scientific research, especially in shark science where they're not considered a very "commercially viable" species. Tons of money goes towards tuna research, because in the right market a single fish can bring in a cool 1/2 million. Sharks, not so much. I understand your animosity towards the hippy van tribes, but not all "handouts" are created equal.

I'm still waiting for my rexfly.


Rammers, can we get some links to the precious little snowflakes you mentioned? I feel like I need to judge someone right now.

I posted a comment on the chum about these losers needing to get a job instead of having people pay for their fishing vacation. Bastards moderated it. As the chum does with any comment I make

would that be the[ line winder/cleaner thing? I had to turn that off after I saw where it was going
but I could really get behind this z axis
I think a gofund to make a Z Axis cookbook makes more sense than most of that shit.
