Anyone save a copy? Might have something interesting in the background. e.g. dates displayed on machine readouts.


After I viewed it, I spent close to 30 minutes viewing similar videos, feeling that I've viewed segments of it before, but abandoned the search. Something didn't feel quite right about it, but I'm not at all versed in the process.

A pilot on a passanger plane makes an announcement. "We are running out of fuel, in order to make it to the next airport we need to lose some weight. Yeah you know what I mean, some people need to jump, any volunteers? Ok since no one volunteers we need to go by the alphabet, so A afro americans, B blacks, C chinese....
In the back seat there is a black guy with his son. The son asks "daddy which one are we afro americans or blacks"
The dad responds "shut up, now we are fucking niggers"

<whispering> "Good call, dad! Finally, we're in front of the Whities."

<over the load speaker> "No more E's, and we're still over weight."

<son to dad> "Looks like we're next, dad."

How do you know if a Chinese tried to rob your house?
You get home and your maths homework is done, your computer is upgraded, and two hours later he is still trying to back out of your driveway.

Why did the little black boy start crying when he had diarrhea?
He thought he was melting.

Whats the difference between a park bench and a black guy?
The park bench can support a family.

What is a Jews biggest dilemma?
Free pork

Why do black people only have nightmares?
Because the last one to have a dream was shot...


(I'm going to hell)

Since we have insulted, Asians, Blacks and Jews, lets not leave out the Gays.

Whats the difference between a fag and a refrigerator?
Ans: A refrigerator  wont fart when you take your meat out.

I was wondering where that noise was coming from... from the other room... I mean next door... What I mean is... Okay, you got me! It's a male goat.

Assuming the alligator was successfully traded for a 12 pack of beer, what should the beer be traded for?

Keep the initia virtual trade reasonable, with all virtual subsequent trades traded accordingly, i.e. no beer for car for house. The slower the growth rate, the more enjoyment this thread will become. Feel free to submit images.

Opting for no reserve post, thus will document the subsequent trades below:

Dmitry,

My nonprofit Upaya Social Ventures is working to create dignified jobs in India's poorest slums. Our organization began accepting bitcoin a few weeks ago and a friend recently told me about Bitcoin 100. I would love the opportunity to talk about possibly including Upaya on your site - please let me know if there is any additional information from me and I will be happy to send it along.

Thanks and looking forward to speaking soon. Happy holidays!

Hello Rassah,

A good friend of mine runs an charity origination which support the small village of Tohoue in Benin. In a few weeks him an I will visit the village and we are going to deliver this offline Wikipedia laptop for this mini project I've been working on.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BBE_xk-ycfNM36vDjIun32v-cbwKL6Z3Lx3b0u-il5s/edit

I'm also a big fan of bitcoin and when I hear of bitcoin 100 I thought it would be a perfect way to convince my friend to accept bitcoin for his charity.

Let me know if you're interested in supporting this kind of charity. Below are some pics from Tohoue.

http://www.volodalen.asso.fr/photos/benin/index.htm  

Thanks,
Bruce

P.S., the main site is here: http://www.volodalen.asso.fr

And below is the area about sponsoring a child. I think it would be here where we could put a big option to donate with bitcoin. I would suggest to my friend to have at least two address, one for sponsoring a child and another just for maybe smaller one time donations.

To: me, Esther

Hi Esther,

Please meet my friend Dmitry. We met in DC in a group of people enthusiastic about innovative technologies that improve our society. He now runs a foundation that is looking for worthy nonprofits to donate to. I am also getting him in touch with over a dozen more organizations I have been connected to. I think he will really appreciate Naija Worldwide Charities.

Dmitry's foundation is called BitCoin100. They arose out of the generosity of a few early adopters of an amazing currency called BitCoins (if you haven't heard of them, this might help) to promote the value of the currency for nonprofits: when donors make their donations in BitCoins, the recipient nonprofit keeps 100% (hence the name). None of the funds are lost to credit card or processing fees.

BitCoin100 donates $1,000 to selected nonprofits who agree to accept the currency on their donation page. It doesn't take much work to get it set up, but I know the money could do a lot of good for your genuine and altruistic efforts.

@Dmitry, Esther is a friend of mine with a great passion for improving lives of others. I met her in DC while seeking architectural and planning projects worth giving a helpful hand to and since then I have been collaborating with her on designing a hospital project in Nigeria. She is a passionate educator, and an inspirational leader. She founded Naija World Charities in 2008 and received national and international recognition since then.
   I know they could do a lot of good with $1,000 and I thank you kindly for your time helping out!

Good luck!

Hello Erick, Rassa,
Thanks Erik for the wonderful introduction, we do the best we can to help those less fortunate than us but it has not been easy. There are so many hurting people around the world whose lives will be improved just with a little help. We would love to be the change agent, the catalyst used in making that difference but at times it feels like our hands are tied due to funding. We work through the grassroots so we meet these people face-to-face, we eat with them sleep on their floors and listen to their stories.
Rassa, good to finally make contact with you. Erik has spoken so much about you and the wonderful work you are doing, I feel like I already know. I look forward to building on this new relationship and maybe collaborating with you in some of the programs that we do. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Seems pretty good. Doubt there'll be any issues with this one either.



And last one,

hello dmitry.

we've run an ad-free, not-for-profit, global-youth-oriented news &
education service since 2005 called spectre. begun as a community
email list, spectre became popular enough to grew in unexpected ways,
including requests for reprints from nonsense nyc, arthurmag &
motherboard, plus viral media tools like facebook, twitter, pinboard,
pinterest, etc. the mission of the project is simple: to spread good
ideas. as news curators we have become many people's favorite news
source, in part because we do this mostly without editorializing. the
main portal to much of that material can be found here, beloved in
certain circles:

http://spectrevision.net
http://spectrevision.net/2013/12/10/price-discovery/

anyway we recently became enamored with bitcoin and added donation and
mining options to our site. so we are very excited to see your offer.
do we in fact qualify? we hope so, and would be happy to explain
ourselves further as needed. looking thru your grantees, we too are
running a non-commercial education platform like antiwar.com or khan
academy. we are a very small group of people, all doing this without
much of any financial support since well, ever, so joining this new
bitcoin economy is a somewhat exciting prospect

please let us know if theres more information you need, and thank you
for considering us

Please contact Dmitry (Rassah) at Rassah@xnicole.com with any
questions or concerns and, moreover, if you oversee, or know of an NPO
that could use a $1,000 USD endowment from Bitcoin 100.

Bitcoin100 exists specifically to convince new charities to start
accepting bitcoin donations. Many Bitcoin enthusiasts of various
backgrounds from around the world have supported this project with
time, effort and/or bitcoins. In order to use donated funds in a
manner consistent with donor expectations, Bitcoin100 donates the
Bitcoin equivalent of $1000 to non-political, secular charities that
prominently display an option for supporters to contribute via Bitcoin
on their website.

Not sure about this one. Phinn, what questions would you ask them?

Upaya: Let's consider another option with Steve Schwartz's cause. Since Upaya is already accepting bitcoin, let's have Steve Schwartz embed a bitcoin donation otion unto another site that he's affiliated with, namely seattlemicrofinance.org

I will get caught up on the rest later today, for at the moment there's some barn wood calling me, and it's fuckin' freezin' outside, with the wind blowin' up my pink tutu. BTW, when am I suppose to take this off?

Honestly, it sounds a bit weird :/

Exactly what would be expected when such an entity is founded by two comedians: http://kvpr.org/post/sunday-assembly-look-organized-non-religion

Quote
Sixteen percent of people around the world say they have no religious affiliation. But even those who aren’t connected to a religion may still be looking for community.

That’s where the Sunday Assembly comes in.

In London earlier this year, stand-up comedians Pippa Evans and Sanderson Jones founded the godless congregation that they say has many of the elements of church, but without religion.

Whether weird or not, I'm still curious if they would pass muster according to the guidelines set by Bitcoin 100. If so, I would love to contact them myself. Remember, our sole goal is to bring awareness to Bitcoin.

Good luck with the effort! Sent a small donation over. https://blockchain.info/address/1THRF26KAsDDLh1JyWB5Hbm5mYgN6LwZt


First and biggest suggestion for the main site: When the send address is in ALLCAPS, it does not register as a valid address for me. Would recommend fixing that first, then fleshing out the rest of the content so it's easier to donate.

https://blockchain.info/address/1THRF26KAsDDLh1JyWB5Hbm5mYgN6LwZt

Due to me putting all my eggs in one basket--roww.org--at the 11th hour (one of the main reasons for attending the Las Vegas conference), my grandiose venable endeavor turned into a bust.

There were only three donations (linked above), of which the first one was mine. I think it's only fair to return the other two in FULL to the donors, one of which I quoted in this post, and the other is unknown at the moment. My donated amount will be donated to Dabs for his food program in the Philippines, oppose to Sean's Outpost of which I will continue to support. Dabs seems to be in better position to make sure funds are allocated accordingly.

I will now pen a PM to Barnacle_Ed, expressing my thanks and making sure that an active receiving bitcoin wallet address is made available so that I can have Rassah transfer back his bitcoins.

Would the other person who so kindly donated please PM me with proof that you are said individual so that you will also be refunded?

Once again, thank you, fellow bitcoiners, for all the support whether you donated or not.

Continental Grain: We're selling corn!  Minimum purchase $1 million dollars. 

Potential Buyer:  Great; I need corn.  How much per bushel?

Continental Grain:  And the first three customers at that level win an all expenses paid trip to Peoria IL to visit their corn and the cows who eat the same corn in the feed lot in the next town over.

Potential Buyer:  So delivery is immediate?  And what's that price per bushel, again?

Continental Grain:  And if you order in the next 10 minutes, you'll also receive this set of steak knives to eat the cow that eats the corn in the next town over.

Is your name Carmen Sandiego by any chance?

Hehe. Someone with a sense of fun :p

Ok. If the prize is too low, how about I boost it up to 0.1? Plus if anyone is willing to donate, I'll dump the whole pot on whomever wins. It could get big...Plus I'll even throw in something else fun. Maybe a t.v. or something. It won't be more money, but it'll be cool.

A TV, eh! Now, that piqued my interest. Throw in a record player and I'll start a huntin' right after my birthday.

Sadly, the cripple (he calls himself that) had to pick up the coins tossed his way while on stage. What if he had an up-to-the-second-bitcoin-wallet-address displayed behind him depicting donated bitcoins, refusing to go on with his act until there's an uptick? In fact, Josh Blue's entire act would consist of how he deals with the latest technological devices. For instance, he got a 3D printer, and the first thing he printed was arm--a left arm that now matches his bad right arm (hand).
