Go Fund My fuck up.

Recommended Posts

This Go Fund Me popped up. 

https://www.gofundme.com/holly-amp-phils-home-was-destroyed

These guys build a home built boat. A shocker at that. Don't finish the project but launch any way. Have a myriad of incidents that would tell any one with less ego to stop and finish the boat properly.

Then cry when it goes tits up and want random strangers to pay for the next fuck up. 

Totally negates the good that this site does for many around the world.

While their hearts seemed to be in the right place, the application of effort seems to have missed a few crucial steps.

Much sadness.

As for the grifting thing, I am unimpressed.

Does seem to be a repeated pattern though...

 

Comment on the GFM site was hilarious.

I donated because you two need help.

Progressive Insurance actually issued a policy on it?

Phillip posted the GFM link on the Facebook Yacht Club page approx 4 hrs ago, anyone wanting a laugh should go find it and read the comments, the sentiment over there is pretty much the same as this thread.

Well I find it a great stress reliever.

No money in that though.

It's pretty hard to make a boat that actually looks better underwater

I've seen that before! Paddled past it in last year's Kayak4Meso trip... Rather thought it was someone's liveaboard, based on the laundry drying on the stern. Didn't look in that great a shape from a distance, either.

Looks like another Void Ho type thing 

it did make it to The Little Red Lighthouse under the GW bridge though..   lots of heavy metal running through there.

maybe we should just go after the donators and ask for $. I want a Mod 70.

I think this quote from the story still has me the most baffled.

Holly had been on an international 6 year quest to become a liveaboard sailor.

My guess is she spent six years looking for a free boat big enough to live on.

Holly: Puis-je vivre sur votre bateau?
French Boatowner: Non.

Holly: Kan jeg bo på din båd?
Danish Boatowner: Ingen.

Holly: Kann ich auf deinem Boot leben?
German Boatowner: Nein.

Holly: Μπορώ να ζήσω στο σκάφος σας;
Greek Boatowner: Οχι.

Holly: ¿Puedo vivir en tu barco?
Mexican Boatowner: No.

Holly: Miyaan ku noolahay doonnidaada?
Somali Pirate: Maya

We can at least give her a participation medal.
Holly doesn't happen to be transgender and pregnant, by any chance...?

Chumbawumba? That has to be worth a few bucks.

Hey - Tub Thumpin' was a cool tune.   The band had a great approach to sharing the wealth - all income was split evenly between everyone - musicians, singers, roadies, sound, etc..

I hope Lil Murray wasn't in their basement. But you never know, worlds collide.

I am so sick of seeing bubbleheaded titfuckers profit from no end of douchery on these fundraising sights. But, then I realized that I’m the idiot, for not profiting from other people’s emptyheaded kindheartedness. 

So, I am starting my own campaign. I need to raise $263,427.81, to rip the v-berth out of my Fingerbang 33 and build in a dog kennel for diabetic chihuahuas with irritable bowel syndrome, rescued from slaughterhouses that supply restaurants in Southern Asia. Together we will sail the South China Sea, while I drum-up awareness from passing ships by playing my theremin naked on the bow. 

As a long time contributing member of this forum, I expect all Anarchists to form line and contribute tout-fucking-suite! 

All donations will be rewarded with a serving of my world famous fermented Adobo chicken. 

What say you?

I'd just like a few track days with a fancy Italian car. I will also accept McLarens too but slightly reluctantly.

The Kickstarter line will start behind Mr. Butter's, over there. Only $3 or 4K. I can video it with one hand holding the camera too if you would like.

If I do not get enough funds I will post a video with me crying on Youtube and begging for more funds.

I dunno 'bout that, but with those wordskillz, if you could talk about bloopers and NOODs and PHRF committees like this, you could well be a candidate for the next Lesbian Robot <music>

‘Mr.’ Butter is sitting in his rocking chair in Kelowna, complaining about the price of bread and why the kids don’t call anymore.
