Sadly it’s official. The top bidder for the Death by Richard LFG Guest Appearance has reneged on their winning bid. I am now in the process of contacting the next highest bidder(s) to see if any of them will be willing to honor their highest bids.
Currently the challenge total is just over $8000. Fingers crossed that some bidder will still be able to come through and nudge us higher or even over the top of our goal of $10,000 for Multiple Sclerosis research. :)
This happened to me when I did a charity auction a few months ago on eBay. IMHO, someone who backs out of the winning bid in a charity auction should have their account banned and lose the privilege of participating in any auctions in the future.
Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement. In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life, a person happy doing his own work is usually considered an eccentric, if not a subversive. Ambition is only understood if it’s to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success. Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords him the time to pursue other interests and activities is considered a flake. A person who abandons a career in order to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living up to his potential-as if a job title and salary are the sole measure of human worth. You’ll be told in a hundred ways, some subtle and some not, to keep climbing, and never be satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you’re doing. There are a million ways to sell yourself out, and I guarantee you’ll hear about them. — Bill Watterson (via mikekarnell)
This is unspeakably perfect.

Lol that is good
California Police Beat Man Nearly To Death For Asking To Read His Ticket -
A Berkeley truck driver is suing the California High Patrol for a brutal assault that brought him to the brink of death — provoked, according to a report by the local NBC affiliate, only by the man’s request to read the ticket he was being given before he signed it.
Best quote from the end of the article:
“Police officials claim that there is no video of the altercation and that all associated radio logs have been deleted by system malfunctioning for this time period.”
I am not surprised. -.-
And I love these people who claim that America is NOT a police state…

Following in the footsteps of former Republican Sen. Rick Santorum, conservatives faced with these self-evident facts have taken to Fox News to cite the problems previous flat budgets have already created to call for a wholesale elimination of the National Weather Service. It’s a classic self-fulfilling sophistry of the right: Ignore the positive work an agency does, keep the agency’s budget flat so that its capabilities do not keep up with the times, then cite the agency’s reduced capabilities as justification to keep cutting it. — Anyone regret slashing National Weather Service budget now?

“When are we ever gonna use this?”
This is a post I’m putting out here to get more attention and viewers on my YouTube channel. I do video game commentary, mostly for RPGs. I’m okay at it, doing the best I can with what equipment I have. I made a big leap to do video commentary as my job and am doing what I can to get viewers and subscribers.
If you care to take a peek and maybe leave a comment or like if you liked what you see, I’d appreciate it.
