BREAKING NEWS: BEARD LIFT FAILURE!→[More:]Holy cow was that sketchy. The lift was successful on the second try, but I don't know what possessed me to even make a second attempt. We've now entered the world of REALLY BAD IDEAS.
Now?! NOW you have entered the realm of REALLY BAD IDEAS. Sir, you have long been KING of the Realm of Really Bad Ideas. Lord Grand High Potentate of the World of Really Bad Ideas. But as they often involve really large amounts of booze in really fun places, we usually follow blindly along.
It still stings! But we've cracked $4,300, so hopefully I'll have just one more lift and then I'll be done with the whole thing. If anyone's been waiting for that special moment to donate, now's the time!
I would like to see you attach your beard to your shoes, and LIFT YOURSELF... You must not weigh a lot more than two gyro cones, right? This would be an interesting practical example of the "bootstrapping" concept.
Since I can't donate until next payday and I'm not sure I'll be able to make the $5K cut off, I pimped your site out on the forum for the guys who did the Desert Bus for Hope charity and I hope that helps out a bit.
