2016 has been a hell of a year and it seems like NO ONE is safe from what the internet has been calling the worst calendar year ever. We still have a few days left before we can all breathe a sigh of relief and move on to complaining about how much worse 2017 is. That's why this brave man has set up a fund to protect national treasure, Betty White, from 2016. From the GoFundMe page, here is his pitch:

Help 2016 catch these hands if it goes anywhere near Betty White! If she's okay with it I will fly to where ever Betty White is and keep her safe till Jan 1 , 2017. Now , assuming she doesn't want a strange Greek standing gaurd outside her door all monies will be donated to the Spartanburg little theater to help craft new stars of stage and screen to carry mantle of the legends that have left is this year.


So... It's not going to Betty White really but hey, it's for a good cause. Besides, who knows what she would really do with all that free money anyway?

This is the video for an IndieGoGo campaign called September 11th Redux with a goal of $1.5 million. The key quote from the information section of the fundraising campaign is this: "We are like a Mythbusters for September 11th." That pretty much says it all. These people want a lot of money to recreate 9-11 in whatever country they think will actually let them do this. 

Who knows if they will reach their goal/be allowed to drive an extremely large aircraft on autopilot into a building. But hey, if you donate $125 you'll get a T-Shirt that says "9-11: THE REDUX" which will be awesome for those of you who love explaining your clothing to the TSA and Federal officers.
