we probably hit a bigger goal in a shorter time, as I wasn't watching it,

was probably more like 12 hrs or so

You will do these things when I am a sleep! When I wake up on a Saturday I head off to do other stuff, it's not typically a big day for GIMing.

This might explain why I missed many of the earlier drives, it was done before I even saw it.

If I hadn't got a PM pointing it out I'd have missed this one!

WE PASSED GOAL!!!

We are at $35 and change, so good to go with the plans on the update,

Thanks to everyone,

I will only leave it open at this point in case someone wants to get in before the lock. Every year there are those that are disappointed by locking down too fast. Sometime tomorrow I will take down the banners, and even then there will be someone disappointed.

Again, look at that list in post 1

One helluva impressive list of contributors!

I tried AGAIN to contribute via the paypal button up on top. I tried with the "pay with credit card" button, and THIS time it keeps telling me "Some of your information is incorrect. Please verify and try again " over and over and over !!

It keeps deleting my credit card # when it does this so I`m assuming it`s the paypal site and NOT my credit card because I tried two different credit cards which I know for a fact are both VALID!!

I finally gave up!! Those fucking ASSHOLES at Paypal don`t know what the hell they`re doing!! It`s one of the reasons I quit using them a while back .......... they`re just plain STUPID !!! I wouldn`t recommend these MORONS to my worst enemy. Now I remember WHY I quit using these bastards .......... they`re just too stupid to deal with !!

I really, REALLY WANTED to donate this time and thanks to the sons-of-bitches at paypal, I can`t !! Fucken STUPID, INCOMPETENT PIGS !!

If anyone doubts what I`m saying , Google ...... https://www.google.com/search?q=why...me..69i57.36325j0j15&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8:

You`ll quickly see what I mean !! It`s painfully obvious paypal makes it`s money by FUCKING their customers out of their money !!

I didn't attend the festivities this go around and, want to take a minute to thank all of those who did. By keeping GIM entirely commercial and thereby corporate free we get to keep our freedom of speech in this tiny little corner of the world and thereby our ability to agree, disagree or at the very least have pissing matches.

A huge thanks to the unbearable Bear. I've had unvoiced complaints against the man in the past, particularly over the April fools day transition so many years ago but, I was blind to the realities of the situation. I'm absolutely certain there is no one better to usher us through another season and want to extend my true appreciation for all of his voluntary leadership. I thought you were going to pull the plug this year but, here you are trudging through with it again.

A huge thanks also goes to the other mods. Not a power hungry asshole in the lot of you. That's a huge compliment imho.

I feel fortunate that I spotted it this year, most times I miss it. Even though I don’t post a lot, I really appreciate the information and camaraderie that this site has given me over the years. Thanks again, Bear.

Understandable. Contribute with content. That's what really makes or breaks this site.

I know the feeling. I've been checking every day for 3 months so I wouldn't miss it. It looks like you've supported GIM in the past. Someone else missed out back then. I've missed for several years myself. You're contributing by posting over the next year. Just remember early March next year.........cool:

i really like this site! i believe that a good amount of you actually give a shit about the world and each other. on most other sites gutless fucking weasels lower than whale shit lurk waiting to dehumanize someone they disagree with instead of taking the time to explain their point of view. i really had no idea that the contribute button was only up for a very short time. thank you Scorpio for being the giving person you are by letting burn outs like me be a part of GIM2. thanks to everyone for your teachings and kindness. i have learned a lot from this place!

I think in the past we have all missed it and felt like you do. I was lucky to catch it this year as it was up for less than a day.

I think we feel it now because GIM2 was almost closed down. It's like your girl packing her shit and starting to walk out the door, but you pull out a pair of diamond earrings and she stays instead.

The old GIM had only a few days per year one could register. I missed that a few times until this new version came. Imagine missing that!

If a girl stops for that, the guy would be better off pulling out cubic zirconia earrings instead.

Yeah, nic, for some girls it be a big mac, order of fries and a shake.
Or, in a pinch, a good line of blow.
