RobinHood 2.0. Make a wish - for the greater good or just for yourself. And maybe get $10,000 to make it come true.

The guy who supposedly won $10,000 in the naughty category has a pretty hilarious youtube video about his wish.

An automated SaveKaryn.com? Ugh.

With Web 2.0, everyone can be Kaycee Nicole. (Though the "I might have cancer, lemme see Metallica" made me laugh).

I don't see anything on this site about how to steal wealth back from corrupt, greedy rulers, so I fail to understand the Robin Hood mentality. It's a consolidated e-begging site.

I couldn't make it thru 2 minutes of that nonsense.

And what XQUZYPHYR said.

In truth, I thought the first two minutes were good, but then nose-dived thereafter. Apologies for commenting without watching the remaining four.

Actually I was hoping someone would explain to me where the money comes from. I can't find how money gets into the whole system.

This idea would be a huge success if donating the money was tax deductible.

how to steal wealth back from corrupt, greedy rulers

Prove to me that the poor had the wealth to begin with, then prove to me how it was stolen. The it should be relatively easy to get it back.

Appearently, it's a side project of Cambrian House, the crowdsourcing outfit responsible for delivering 1000 free pizzas to Google as a Thank You gimmick. Cambrian House, BTW, amassed $2.5m from a Canadian Venture Capital outfit, and is headed by Michael Sikorsky, who amassed his own revenue during the dot-com craze.

Dear lord... this should not be confused with the actual Robin Hood Foundation.
