To be honest, the guy just mocked 98% of the campaign, but the fact that he went over the 50k, goes to show how retarded modern world really is.

I think we need another dot-com bubble..

More like worse kickstarter project. Idiots like this make a mockery of genuine projects. Annoys crap out of me.

I resonate with this so much. It’s really annoying to see this getting so much funds while legit projects don’t make it trough.

I think the backers all know it’s a joke though so they’re willingly giving their money away for a laugh.

The reason why it’s a success is not the product but the idea, it captures peoples imagination and they want to be part of it, which is why it out performs other legitimate campaigns. So I think he’s quite deserving of the attention it’s getting.

Well even i do not agree with this salad madness and I think there a lots of other Kickstarter projects who deserve the attention this guy is getting, I cant be angry… if I dont like the project I will not support it, end of story. If there are people out there who want to give money to this guy let them do it, is not like they are giving away your money.

That’s really absurd. I feel that people who don’t understand why this project got the funding it did are missing a huge chunk of the psychological picture of what makes humanity tick. There’s a reason. Spend some time looking at people like Camus and his philosophy. Why do you imagine that things become viral in the first place?

I don’t want to fund some whiny war-vet/brilliant genius engineer/sob-story/good cause/generic “do this because society expects it of you” type of motivation. There are a million and a half instances of that in the world, and genuinely good ideas DO get funded (look up “Coolest Cooler”) while BS like solar roadways (look at EEVblog’s breakdown on it) also get millions when people have NO clue they just literally threw money away. Then, they walk away feeling like they’ve made the world a better place when they’ve actually logistically just rewarded terrible behavior in the most grandiose manner possible. That kind of stuff makes me 10x more sick than a legitimate “joke” ever can because it’s obvious on the face of the joke what it is. That’s why people love jokes. They offer incredible clarity and concreteness where normally there is intrigue and subterfuge and endless questions about legitimacy and what is the real motivation behind the facade.

The people donating to this project particular have explicit knowledge of what they are doing. I feel it’s one of the most fascinating case studies in absurdism that I’ve seen in years.
