RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2397Goal: $5000

The Boredoms: experts
…it's just that the new monotony is so intensely sustained that you can't get bored…
—Lester Bangs on the Stooge's Fun House album[1]

Random factoid: Did you know… that President Gerald Ford and his primary satirist, Chevy Chase, appeared at a conference (Humor and the Presidency) together?

There once was a doctor named Ludwig
Who made up a tongue he could rule with
Its rules were so random
That everyone panned them
And nobody would deign to use it.

Bored? Nothing to do? Well, there are things you can do to help out around RationalWiki, and maybe even educate yourself a little too:

  • Research and write an article about something.
  • If you don't have a subject in mind, pick one from the wanted pages, or the "to do" list. This is a list of links that people have created for articles that don't exist yet.
  • Have a look through the articles nominated for deletion or non-mission articles and comment on their talk page or improve them if you can.
  • Read a few of our articles (some of them are actually interesting), and improve/expand/correct/copyedit them if you find they need it.
  • Update your user page, or build some new userboxes.
  • Click here (or the "Random page" button to the left) and see where it takes you.
  • Start at a random point on Special:Allpages and read (and improve) as many articles as you can be bothered.

Other ways of reducing boredom:

  • go down the pub or the local Saloon
  • put on a (porno?) DVD
  • sleep
  • make out
  • join Conservapedia & argue (it only lasts seconds but it's fun)
  • disprove relativity
  • build a particle accelerator
  • breed (with?) a goat
  • read a book
  • write a book
  • learn to play a musical instrument
  • sit staring blankly into space
  • get a life!
  • create your own wiki
  • install Gentoo
  • play Tetris (shown to improve rational thinking!)
