Many of you have written
and asked how the heck I came up with such a stupid... er... I mean wonderful...
idea as this website. Well - glad you asked! It's a nice little story
(I think), so sit back and relax...
There I was sitting at my desk (imagine),
staring at the Omnipresent-Pile-O-Bills, when I realized I was losing my
voice from all the moaning and groaning. I'd had enough for one evening
so I flipped on my almost-good stereo and started surfing the web on my under-equipped
yet wildly expensive PC when, suddenly, the answer to my financial woes hits me.
I get excited...
"I could sell something on the Internet and make money,
Yes! That's it! That's the
answer! I could
sell some sort of Crap on the net and make a fortune!
I'll be rich! Yippee!!
I get really excited...
my wife douses me with a bucket of water (I must have passed
out from the intoxicating effects of thinking about a bazillion dollars of my
very own) I awoke with the realization that I was only missing one
little thing to make my dream come true -- The Crap. I had nothing to sell.
No Crap whatsoever. Not even little miniature glass poodles or dried smoked
I get depressed...
that moment, I spent months trying to think of something great to sell
online. Every single thing that anyone ever mentioned or that I saw (just
ask my family!) was met with a hearty "Hey,
maybe I could sell that online!" Unfortunately, nobody
wanted to let me sell *their* Crap, and I'm much too untalented to make anything
I get even more depressed...
one evening, I'm back at the desk again staring at the Omnipresent-Pile-O-Bills
when I have another glorious revelation!
"What if a million people sent me a dollar!?"
can hardly contain my excitement! I scribble down my ideas and then
go and tell my wife all about it. (By this time it was 2 o'clock
in the morning, so she wasn't as impressed with my revelation.) I
was so excited and inspired that I stayed up for almost 2 days straight! I told
all my friends, co-workers, and everyone else I met about my idea, but nobody
thought it was very good. Rubbish! I was confident that there are enough
kind-hearted and generous people on the internet (you!)
that I would finally have some financial freedom.
many late nights and busy weekends putting everything together, the Amazing
"Gimme A Buck" (please) Website was finally launched! Won't you
please help me out and gimme a buck today? You can be part of history!
