We shouldnt let certain threads get bump because of our own babble.
Also I am agreeing with Randy strangely enough.
Shit, I just bumped it.
Can I put this in here, too, from that thread? In case some are avoiding that thread for their own reasons.
In all honesty I had no intention of even mentioning the funding page my sister set up here on this board. Have the kindness of GPS to thank for that...and you all that have donated have blown my mind with your generosity. Have raised over $13,000 in just nine days! No new lungs by next April and I may just be there to party, but once the new breathers are in I am banned by my docs. We'll have to set up another party to celebrate, with all my Coachella family of the last 10 years invited
Just want my thanks posted any and everywhere on this board for all to see.

I am actually looking into setting up a benefit concert, have someone who runs a clothing company maybe doing some shirts, and reaching out to a couple poster artists to create a limited print. So many ideas for the future!
Steve I fully plan to donate to you or any regular boardie who really needs it .I just find it weird for someone to join the board, make a thread, and ask for donations for their first post and only post in their thread.Espeically since We care to donate to you and how I see it someone trying to steal your thunder.
Yeah, definitely weird in my book, too. But desperation makes people do crazy things, can't blame the guy. Hope he sticks around and proves everyone wrong, becomes a part off the community. If not, well, he just ruined it for anyone else in the future. With all I have seen in my own world lately I am tending to view the world with rose colored glasses, avoiding the negative, just focusing on the positive. Have done too much of the former for far to long. I'm sure it will bite me in the ass, but I'll enjoy it while I can, haha

I'm just happy that Mike posted his number so I can keep texting him
Anybody interested in formally registering agreement with my position may do so by sending a cashier's check for $5 to Hannah Rain C/O Stately Rain Manor, Portland, OR 97214.
If you all donate enough, I'll get a boob job.
Our lives would be enriched considerably if you got more attention.
The difference between giving Steve money and giving this other dude money is that we know Steve. We know that his situation is real. We know that his situation is life or death and completely unavoidable. Steve helped us out during the great ticket fiasco of 2012. (?)We don't know jack shit about this apparently able bodied 22 year old. It's just fucking weird to me to come blazing in here asking for money when no one has any idea who he is just because he goes, inexplicably, to the same damn festival.
I was going into a Chinese buffet once when I was hit up by a spanger. He said he was hungry so I told him I would help him on my way out. I bought him $7 worth of buffet food and he ate it voraciously after I handed it to him. 20 minutes later I see him at the Wal Mart next door riding up on people on his mountain bike as they're putting groceries in their cars. I asked one of the people what he said and they replied he said he was hungry and needed money for food.
Another time I pull in to a .99 cent store. This guy with one leg appears and asks if he can wash my windows for a donation. I tell him sure and give him $5. Couple weeks later I see him again and its cold. People are leaving him donations. I go in to the .99cent store and buy him $15 worth of food that he can travel with. He was appreciative. A month later I see him there again but this time he is in a rickety beat up car with his daughter. I'd like to think that the money he made bought him that car.
Another notorious spanger is this guy in Vegas with a shopping cart that he has modified into a small race car that he puts his dogs in and dresses them up. This guy makes crazy cash as in 6 figures a year I've heard and isn't even a resident. He just comes in during the winter months and goes back home in the summer.
My favorite Vegas bum of all is the one known as "The Dread" he's got one huge matted mass of hair that is one gnarly unidread. This guy walks up and down the strip and drinks the ass end of beer bottles out of trash cans. I've never seen the guy spange. He just lives off the land.
I think Mike is a pioneer and a visionary. Just like the first bum that decided to spange at the end of the exit ramps hitting people up as they get off the highway. Soon after there was one at every ramp off the 15 in Vegas. When the other bums get wind of his genius there will be one on every message board.
That last sentence is nonsense.
I'm spitting in his fave when I see him
The last time I offered to give a spanger anything was with a guy that used to hang around on the corner near my apartment. Whenever I saw him he asked me and I'd give him a Loonie or whatever I had on me. One day when he asked I went into my wallet, but I had no cash and my only change was a penny. I said "I'm so sorry all I have is a penny." He looked right at me and said, "I don't want your fucking penny". That was it for me and giving money to begging spangers.
You "heard" that term? You WERE a fucking spanger and you still say that term all the fucking time, reflecting fondly on some gross period where you begged people for money to do drugs SHUT UP
