'Cards Against Humanity' buys borderland to stop Trump's wall

Cards Against Humanity's latest holiday stunt: Stop Trump's border wall and more surprises for $15 Cards Against Humanity 'saves America' by buying a plot of vacant land on the border to inhibit Trump's wall

"It's 2017, and the government is being run by a toilet", begins the promotional website, which later declares: "Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans".

On the Cards Against Humanity website, there's even more information about the cause.

Cards Against Humanity, known as "a party game for terrible people", has done holiday promotions in the past, including a year ago when they dug a hole to nowhere. He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. It's these views that have led Cards Against Humanity to purchase a chunk of territory along the US-Mexico border in an attempt to, if not foil President Donald Trump's border wall plan entirely, at least become a major pain in his ass.

In the meantime, President Trump has continuously promised that the border wall will happen - and prototypes are already being built, according to NBC News. You give us $15, and we'll send six America - saving surprises right to your doorstep. The first of those surprises will include a map of the vacant plot on the border, some new cards for the game, and other goodies. Last year, for example, it raised more than $100,000 in donations to finance the digging of a massive hole in the middle of nowhere, for no reason.

Firefox 57 brings Project Quantum to the masses
Note that in the wake of opening the tenth tab, Quantum starts to give a squiggly stacking hint on new tabs. Firefox once commanded roughly a fourth of the web browser market, but its share has slid in recent years.

They also created a "reflective" video from an aging millennial who recalled what happened because of the promotion. Nowadays, Hawaii 2 is open to the general public for hiking or fishing.

The campaign, named "Cards Against Humanity Saves America", is a six-day campaign of sending "gifts" to anyone who ponies up $15.

Cards Against Humanity said there were originally 150,000 slots and, as of Tuesday afternoon, less than 60,000 slots were still available.

In a nutshell, CAH says they are saving America from "Injustice, lies, racism, the whole enchilada".
