Another example of how people are inclined to give handouts to those they perceive to not need a handout.

Over the last five years, Beyoncé has given $7 million of her own fortune to fund a housing complex for homeless people in Houston. For those years, the Knowles-Temenos Place Apartments has quietly provided room and board for 43 previously homeless people, and Beyoncé hasn’t once taken credit for it.
I have table-flipping-She-Hulk rage over that dude who raised at least $60,000 to make a damn potato salad. There was a 3 day period where I may have needed a trigger warning for talk of potato salad.
Which was sad because I really wanted to eat some potato salad. Since,you know, that’s about all I can eat these days and it sounded like a nice change from soup.
Over the weekend, we had salt potatoes for dinner. The next day, I used the leftovers to make what could only be described as Rage Against the Potato Salad Kickstarter Potato Salad. It was good with only a slight aftertaste of bitterness & rage.
It doesn’t take a genius or $60,000 to make tater salad. You take potatoes
…cut ‘em into chunks. Maybe peel them first. Maybe not. Whatever.
Add some mayo, Dijon mustard,a splash of apple cider vinegar…some herbs (I like dill & lovage). Maybe even chop up some onions, if that’s what you’re into. I like hard boiled eggs in it,too.
That’s it. How much of each? Who knows. I just throw it together until it looks like potato salad. Like I said, doesn’t take a genius. Or someone who has money. I made a huge bowl for probably about $3.00 or so.
So, now that I showed you how to make a decent potato salad for free, do me ONE favor:
If you have money to throw at a cause, please give it to people who need it and not someone who started a fundraiser as a joke. If you don’t trust people on the Internet, go buy some potatoes and other good food to donate to your local food pantry. Thanks.
From the Gregory Project website:
Cities are engulfed with rigid constructions for billboard advertisement which are expensive to put up, maintain and their subsequent renting is a costly venture. The Gregory project brings optimization to the construction of billboard structures in a way that the insides of these, after the extension, could be turned into a living space. Such an object would need just a minimal maintenance cost which could be partially paid through the rental of its advert space.
I like that this is solution oriented.
