Title: Help plant a "flag of Bitcoin" at the South Pole!
Post by: mpfrank on November 03, 2013, 12:22:45 AM
This guy is raising sponsorship money for his South Pole trip...  If he gets 15 BTC he will plant a Bitcoin flag at the South Pole!  As of this writing, he is at 13.36 BTC, and counting...  Let's help him reach his goal!  It seems like a cool publicity stunt.  He is also going to buy a pizza from the South Pole using BTC as a demonstration.

Looks like the goal of 2000 was met. What we do not have is irrefutable proof that the donation address is valid (but no specific reason to think it's a scam either).

That is why I'm recognized worldwide as the TMIBITW.

He's going to buy the pizza, and when BTC are $10,000 a piece, he'll kick himself in the ass for that expensive pizza.  ;D

I bet it will be a cold pizza when it gets there.

Hopefully this goes ahead without a hitch. Would be great for publicity.

I understand more and more why Satoshi decided to stay away from the limelight. Who knows how many creatures will be disturbed and how much fuel would be used for this smart expedition.

Unlike Antarctica, this (randomly picked up) place would love a little bit more of attention, with any flags

Anyway, good luck and have a safe trip.
