DOESN'T THIS PISS YOU OFF?
We've all seen it a hundred times. You're driving through a busy parking lot and you spot an open space up ahead! You feel like you've hit the lottery!!! Until you get up close and see that some jackass has parked their Hummer WAAAYYY over the line, taking up two perfectly good spots.
Or maybe you're in a tight parking garage, you park your car perfectly, and when you come back you find some A-hole has done a fine job of blocking you in while you were away!
If you're anything like me you want to skin the person who did that and then toss them in some salt water!!! Or at least give them a good talking to.
WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO ABOUT IT!
Well instead of pulling a Dexter on 'em, or maybe taking a key to the side of their car, or a pocket knife to the tire, or... well you get the picture. Instead of all that, how about just leaving them a polite little card that lets them know they are a complete jackass!
Just imagine a world where elitists driving big BMWs are publicly shamed into actually parking like normal human beings! Or where soccer moms take 5 extra seconds to make sure their 8 MPG SUV is actually between the lines.
So, we're gonna print up a massive batch of Bad Parking Cards, and send them to all our backers so we can work together to get a handle on this parking situation!
Crazy Stretch Goal #1!
Now, what we're going to do isn't rocket science here. HOWEVER, as a stretch goal, if our Kickstarter passes $50,000 (yeah, we know its not going to happen) we'll actually make our best attempt at launching some of these cards into space! (Why not?) And we'll make it an episode on Geek Beat TV! After all, aliens probably suck at parking too.
Insane Stretch Goal #2!!
As an even more ridiculous stretch goal, if we pass $500,000 (yeah right) we'll buy a Mercedes and demolish it on a LIVE broadcast!!! (Why WOULDN'T we do that?)
We will also go insane, because that would mean we have to deal with over 20,000 orders! But hey, we're game if you are.
So, buy some cards. Change the world. And stick it to the man.
Risks and challenges
Make no mistake, the risks associated with printing silly cards and shipping them to people are enormous. First, we have to complete the final design work. Our computer could crash, causing us to have to redo the design any number of times. This could result in long hours, late nights, and copious amounts of Red Bull.
After the design is complete, we have to find a printer capable of handling the enormous scale of our order. Have you ever seen $5,000 worth of business cards? Let us assure you, it would take a truck to move them. (Or at least a Mini Wagon).
The Earth could become deforested, resulting in a shortage of paper. Or whatever ink is made of could become scarce for some reason. Like an army of ink eating monsters could invade.
Also, our unpaid interns could quit. And we don't really know what that would do to us. But having said all of that, we're pretty sure that if you entrust us with printing up and shipping you some silly business cards to stick on people's windshields - we can handle it. If we do run into challenges, we'll find a new printer, hire more free interns, and do whatever is necessary to deliver the cards to our loyal backers! Just like the US Postal Service. Only better.
