    I know, I know, I'm not supposed to be here.

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by The Freshmaker, May 21, 2010.

    But I'm reaching out for some support. If you dislike me, then you'll love this opportunity to drive me into the poorhouse.

    As some of you may know, I write a blog. This week, I created a video inspired by The Uniform Project, which raises money for underprivileged children in India to attend school. I pledged to donate fifty cents to the UP for each person who comments on my blog this week.

    I figured this would fly under the radar, and generate a few comments from family and friends, in which case I would just quietly and anonymously donate $50 or so.

    Well, that didn't happen. I got noticed by Sheena Matheiken, the girl behind the Uniform Project, and she linked to me on her Facebook and Twitter. Awesome, right?

    Okay, this scared the **** out of me. I don't have a lot of extra money, and I was freaking out a little bit. But I got messages from some friends who said they would love to chip in, and even a couple of my coworkers heard about it and said they'd put in a few bucks. Also, the comment flood abated a bit, and so did my blood pressure.

    So this is, as they say, on. And I'm fishing for enough comments for a worthwhile donation.

    That's where you fine folks come in.

    Do it here.

    Thanks much.

    Well its the name of an episode. I believe its the Episode where he has to find a way to fairly distribute the food and he believes he will be hated by everyone.

    but then maybe he just hates Hugo. Why I have no idea, because Hugo is a great character.

    But I think maybe Cogito might have said this because no one actually hates Hugo and the same goes for this guy.

    But then maybe I am looking to deep into it.
