Five Dollar Friday, Always Late

Explanation of Five Dollar Friday here. Follow who else is giving on twitter.

Clearly I need to get my act together and actually give out $5 Friday money on Fridays. Since this is a day late for the third week in a row, the amount is again $10. This week it goes to treasured weirdo Dennis Perrin to support the pursuit of his Nameless Mission.

What is Dennis's Nameless Mission? Here, let the Church of the Subgenius explain:

You want to know, "JUST EXACTLY WHAT IS THIS...?" That question is asked a thousand times a day, every day, somewhere. And it's a good thing, because that's the most pertinent question to ask in this modern age.

There is no description. Words do not suffice; one must "SEE." We let you see a little at a time until you are led gradually to TOTAL CLARITY. It is the Nameless Mission. The true mission is always nameless. To name it is to doom it....and alert the enemy.

You can find a little more detail about it here and here and even (NSFW) here:

Why not just switch it to $10 Saturdays? Or are you dreading the potential for $20 Sundays?
