    Northlake Library’s Getting a Giant Hulk Statue With or Without Crowdfunding

    In May, I wrote about the Northlake Library's Indiegogo campaign to raise money for a nine-foot-tall Incredible Hulk statue. There are still four days left in the campaign, but they're woefully short of their $30,000 goal. At the moment, they're sitting still at $3,710, but don't let that get you down, because the library is getting a Hulk statue. It's not the one they wanted, but they're not going to look a gift Hulk in the mouth.

    You Can Help This Library Buy a 9-Foot-Tall Hulk Statue

    If there's a better use of crowdfunding sites like Indiegogo than getting the Northlake Public Library a nine-foot-tall statue of The Hulk, we don't know what that use is. The librarians of Northlake have big plans, and those plans involve a giant Hulk statue, and helping people read and create more comic books. They also have one of the most awkward campaign videos we've ever seen.

    Make This Happen: Indiegogo Campaign to Create a Nikola Tesla Animated Series

    Two animation and science enthusiasts are trying to make every geek's dreams come true. The guys behind Wood Goblin Studios have an Indiegogo campaign to fund the pilot of a cartoon about Nikola Tesla. To make it even nerdier and more perfect, his sidekick is Mark Twain, and they travel through time battling Thomas Edison, because of course they do. My only question about this cartoon is why doesn't it already exist?

    NoPhoto License Plate Frame Protects You From Traffic Cams

    Hidden traffic cameras take all the fun out of driving. Even if it seems like there's nobody around for miles, you never know when there's going to be a camera on a traffic light or telephone pole that's going to snap a shot of you driving just a little too fast. There's nothing worse than getting a ticket in the mail that you didn't realize you got nicked for at the time. Jonathan Dandrow knows your pain, and he wants to help: He created the NoPhoto, a license plate frame that detects traffic cameras, and blocks your plate number when big brother tries to catch you red-handed.

    Lawyer Now Attempting to Stop Transfer of Operation BearLove Money

    There's nothing quite like hanging a sign on yourself for the hate of the internet by filing to stop the transfer of $211,223.04 to the National Wildlife Federation and American Cancer Society. And yet, that's exactly what Charles Carreon has done in the now-infamous FunnyJunk vs The Oatmeal debacle. It doesn't even have relevance to FunnyJunk now and it seems to be out of pure spite to stop Matthew Inman, the guy behind The Oatmeal, from taking a photo of the money in a mocking fashion. Not sure this is the way to go about saving face.
