Do I have any super wealthy readers who want to help in an emergency?

Well, this is embarrassing.  When I scheduled my flight to do the Santa Cruz debate (which I’m supposed to fly out tomorrow), I had it in my head I was supposed to fly into San Diego.  Turns out I was supposed to fly into San Jose.

The fault is undoubtedly mine.  It will cost about $500 to fix, but I don’t have that kind of money.  My paypal is  If any of you want to throw substantial amounts of money at this (y’know, if you have it to burn), I’d be grateful.  Otherwise I’m not sure what we’ll do.  :\

Total raised so far: MORE THAN ENOUGH YOU GUYS RULE!

    Not all of it, but I did what I could.

    • JT Eberhard

      Thank you! Here’s hoping we can get it covered. I appreciate it, Andy.

  • Kalani

    Ask and ye shall receive.

  • Loqi

    I’d be willing to pitch in whatever you need.

  • Christina M

    I consider my donation an “ethical act with no foundation in God.” Feel free to use it as evidence in your debate, sir! Good luck and I hope you get to tool around the Bay Area while you’re out there!

    • Art Vandelay

      That’s brilliant. Mine too. I just have to figure out who this John person is.

  • Loqi

    Wow, I didn’t even have time to get home so I could pitch in. Will redirect that money to a worthy cause of some kind instead.

  • MathMike

    Well, that escalated quickly.
    Glad you’re covered.

  • M

    Well, I saw this after you had enough. I’m glad you got it covered and can fly to your debate. Have fun!

  • Benjamin

    Got fixed before I could throw a few dollars at it. Damn it, JT! Time these things so I can contribute something to you.

  • RowanVT

    You’re flying *here* tomorrow? NOT FAIR! I have a 12 day old foster kitten keeping me tied to the house. ;_;

  • Katie

    *blink* Seeing this just now. I want to help! If anything goes wrong let me know: my folks are all in San Jose if you end up needing anything.

  • Glodson

    I’m glad you made it. And way to go everyone that contributed.
