Local business seeks capital to move to a new location after losing his tenancy in the former location. Such business seeks capital investment through a new SEC regulation. Local investors may invest in the business with relatively small investments. In the case of Blimpy, those investments may be as small as $2.00.
So what does one expect from a $2.00 investment? Probably not much.
I have been to Blimpy about once a year for the past 40 years, generally leaving with unfavorable digestive consequences the next day. The efforts of the staff to emulate Belushi in the SNL Cheese Burger Cheese Burger skits is weak to say the least, but they are trying their schtick.
I will throw at least $25.00 to help a local business even if I don't think it is great, but just to support a business that had a local following for a long period of time in Ann Arbor. I don't expect anything in return and certainly don't look at it as a donation. I may even throw $100.00 to help them. It is really a small amount to support a local business that some consider a magnet for students and athletes at UM.
Stop the nonsense about whether the business deserves it or not. Either get on the bus or not and no one gives a shit one way or the other.
|6 days 7 hours ago||The Website Does Not Seek Donations||
To the contrary, this appears to be a crowdfunding solicitation. The SEC permitted this concept through the JOBS ACT of 2012, which allows local small investors to contribute to a business concept. The 2012 Jumpstart Our Business Startups ("JOBS") was designed so that local investors could participate in local businesses. It requires a portal (Indiegogo) and an unrelated sponsor of the business (Crazy Jim's Blimpy Burgers). Indiegogo is a large national portal.
The business does not have to treat the investors with financial rewards but can provide other perks. For instance some investors in movies get to have their names listed as "associate producers" or other title.
So the bottom line is that Crazy Jim is soliciting capital through the JOBS Act and it has nothing to do with donations. Contribute capital if you desire and wait for your returns, whatever they may be.

Is so far up Bucky's fat ass that he cannot accept their being dominated by Sparty.

Eliminating certain assholes. There seems to be a certain element of gang banging that goes on when certain posters disagree with another's post.
I enjoy reading the entire board and don't post very often as my reading is not always timely. The debates are for the most part very enjoyable, but then all of a sudden some deuchebag rolls out of the closet with a bitchy disagreement and others jump on in the same manner.
Go for it Brian. I suspect there are a lot of folks that agree with you in every regard.

Then continue to recruit him and put the full court engineering press on him. It's not over til it's over.

But not the first or second time.....needed the fourth.

"i" before "e" except after "c" or when sounding like "a" as in neighbor and weigh.

Boo-boo message from Hoke.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||You Have No||
Understanding of David Brandon. Not that I do either, but Brady Hoke is going nowhere. DB may strongly suggest that Borges and Funk resign with a nice financial package to walk away, but BH is here for at least another three years.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||We Seemed to Have Missed||
One alternative.........In the face of incredible private and public criticism, Borges cuts a deal to resign with a nice walkaway financial package.
Maybe Funk too.

Looks like our best opportunity.

When I have to drive through Ohio, just to shit in, on and about Ohio. I try to save the really smelly shits for Ohio Turnpike bathrooms.
Meant as a response to some other fucking post (#15?), but you get the fucking point.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Offense: Shit Package Left||
Shit Package right. My German Shorthaired Pointer was calling out the fucking plays during the game.
Best move of the day. Going to the tail gate, selling the tickets and returning home to watch and throw fuck bombs with impunity at the cock sucking tube.

Deserves better than what our coaches are giving him. He is just a sitting duck back there.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Does Anyone||
Understand the term "clueless?"
Apparently the opposing coaches do, while laughing at our ineptitude.

It goes to the top.

But he's gotta go...........somewhere else.

On the sidelines without a jacket.
On the other hand, his coaching resembles idiocy.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||None of Them||
Have a fucking clue about what they are doing? Is that coaching? Are they supposed to know what to do because their momma's told them? Fuck no! Who is coaching these kids?
Whoever it is is way over their heads.

For me. Sounds like a very tough guy..........in writing. In person, probably not so much.

A stunningly beautiful word. One would think it would have been used by a professor in law school, but not so.

That Sean Salisbury was a dopey blowhard who talked too much and did not know when to stop talking. I began to change my mind about halfway through this interview, but then the blowhard could not stop talking and in the end did not make much sense.
Then somehow the discussion turned into shitting into a brother's mouth and being catholic, but I don't understand if the poster meant the adjective or the noun, that is being all-embracing or a member of the Catholic Church.
But why bitch about what someone else posted? Unless it is really stupid?

Now that is a great idea.
|6 weeks 15 hours ago||Seems to Me||
That it was a good idea until it was up. It really is hard to take your eyes off the thing when driving by. It is hard to argue that it is not distracting.
And yes, the city has no governing ability over the monster that is UM in Ann Arbor, for better and worse.

Nebraska is just not very good. We should easily win this game, but then again, nothing is ever easy is it?
What Michigan team will show up? Brady has to get the team up for this game. Right?
Right? Of course?

That would not be recommended unless you desire bitchy responses.

This fascinating story about the ALL evolves into the discovery of farts and pissing rocks, but the humor is great.

To fathom himself as the moderator for calling out "trolls" and seems quite bitchy himself.
I fully support your response....Good guy and Go Blue!
