You may have heard about the potato salad Kickstarter project that is making the rounds on the Internet. A genius individual named Zack Danger Brown is trolling the world with a Kickstarter site to raise money in the hopes of making a potato salad. He writes: “Basically I’m just making potato salad. I haven’t decided what kind yet.” Under Risks and Challenges, “It might not be that good. It’s my first potato salad.”
