What a strange world we live in.

If you’re not familiar with Kickstarter, it’s a fundraising site that allows people to set a goal and ask for donations from strangers.

A man named Zack ‘Danger’ Brown decided he wanted to make potato salad for the first time.

“Basically I’m just making potato salad. I haven’t decided what kind yet,” he wrote on the Kickstarter page.

He asked for $10 and met his goal quickly.

But then the donations kept coming in: $35, $75, $100. So Zack decided to keep setting new goals.

$35 – I will make 4x as much Potato Salad. I know $40 isn’t 4x $10, but you guys have earned it.

$75 – Pizza Party!

$100 – I will try two different Potato Salad recipes.

That’s when things really took off. Now, people have donated more than $2,100 to the potato salad project — and there’s no end in sight.

Here are his latest goals:

$1000: I’ll do a live stream of the potato salad making

$1200: I’ll pay someone to film a thank-you video for all of my backers!

Arguably the best news of all — Zack plans to throw a potato salad party if he can raise $3,000, and you’re invited.

$3000: My kitchen is too small! I will rent out a party hall and invite the whole internet to the potato salad party (only $10 and above will be allowed in the kitchen)! The internet loves potato salad! Let’s show them that potato salad loves the internet!!

Zack’s only warning: “It might not be that good. It’s my first potato salad.”

    Slow News Day, huh, Guys?

    I guess you didn't like that I thought your stories are crap. You banned me. That's a form of censorship and it's also wildly unprofessional for a 'News Agency'. Maybe you shouldn't respond with bullshit, asinine, belittling or unprofessional comments. It IS independence day and carrying the entire fuselage of the plane IS vastly different than "plane parts". If they had the whole fuselage, they probably had the wings, too, think of that? The train probably WAS carrying entire planes, but you probably didn't ask your correspondents in Montana about that, huh? Oh well, not the first story you put out that was missing pieces, exaggerated, minimized or a flat out lie. All journalistic integrity has long since abandoned you and your poor excuse for 'NEWS'.

      They probably banned you for being a douche canoe… Also the fuselage is a segment of a plane, not the entire plane.

      Generally the fuselage on the Boeing units is shipped separately from other parts, and most of the other parts are made here in Washington.

      Then again I wouldn't expect you to have done your actual research…
