"Pledging on Kickstarter is buying my future self a surprise gift." –Joshua Little
This Baggywrinkles comic book by Lucy Bellwood was a pretty awesome surprise.
Sometimes I think the project-funding part of Kickstarter (which is pretty cool) isn't as awesome as the amazingly-awesome forgetful-people-get-surprise-gifts aspect. Like, I might be similarly delighted if I ordered a jar of pickles be delivered to me in six months (even though I'm not too worried about funding for the pickle industry) just because one day: unexpected pickles. Anyhow.
