I'm sure you've all heard of the I'm Making Potato Salad campaign -

It's launched a wave of food-based projects.

Then there was the unsuccessful Nothing Simulator -

David Mark Brown's project is I Want To Write a Story That Takes Place In Idaho. For the paltry sum of $50 you get to channel George R.R. Martin and kill a character. Any character, any way you want. -

Have you heard of any other great get rich quick schemes projects? Have any ideas for your own?

Will Once (willonce) | 445 comments My suggested project is ... "50 gazillion permutations of grey".

It will be my first attempt at porn. You might say "dipping my toe in" ... if that's not too weird an image.

The way it will work is this. Every so often, I'll publish a porn story. But first we'll run an online auction to decide how is going to do what to who whilst wearing what. Famous people, living or dead, single or in groups. Football teams. Entire nations.

Who knows? We might even get wealthy people bidding in order to keep themselves out of the action.

I reckon I'll need at least £200,000 to pay all the legal bills...

Great idea!

I'll be the first contributor.

Kim Kardasian, Vladimir Lenin, The Vienna Boys Choir.
All wearing diapers and pink bunny suits.
No penetration, but lots of groping.
In the conservatory.
With a lead pipe.

R. Webb (mindattic) | 18 comments How about a Kickstarter campaign to start a Kickstarter campaign?

"For $5000, I'll be able to come up with an awesome Kickstarter project, plus have a high quality video convincing people to donate to it. But that campaign will only be possible if you donate to this one! If you donate, you'll get the privilege of donating to another project right after. That project might fail completely or be something you won't ever want or need, but you won't know unless this one gets off the ground."

Lisa Shiroff | 840 comments Brilliant, R! Now then, before I can donate to yours, I'll need to start a Kickstarter for myself to receive funds for your Kickstarter.

Will Once (willonce) | 445 comments Like it. A Kickstarter pyramid scheme. You send $5000 to the first name on the list, then add your name to the bottom of the list and send it to ten of your friends.

I think we may be on to something here.

Once again, you folks have rendered me speechless.

message 8: by R. (new)

R. Webb (mindattic) | 18 comments I think I'll need to start a Kickstarter to pay into the pyramid scheme, so I'll have enough money to start a Kickstarter to receive funds to pay into a pre-Kickstarter campaign.

I think I may have gotten into a bit of a Kickstarter recursive loop.

This is beginning to sound like a Kickstarter chain letter.

message 10: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Shiroff | 840 comments But what if a person don't know 12 people to forward the message to? I mean, sometimes restraining orders prevent such attempts at good luck. Is there a loop hole clause?
