Hmm. Are you a manority or a woman? Not to say you wouldn't use it to the best of our abilities. Just curious.

He is likely asking because it is difficult to get financial assistance here in the US if you are not considered a minority.

Congrats, thats kickass.

ahhhhh, cool. i am just your normal middle age white male with 2.6 kids and a hatred of bureaucratic crap that has driven me to depression so have been unemployed for about 10 months. that was the only requirement for this grant (the unemployed bit :)) but there was still a fair bit of hoop jumping involved


01-17-2010, 8:43 PM
Congrats, all the best.

01-17-2010, 10:34 PM
congrats but i have to ask how do you have 2 and 3/4 kids? is your third one missing something? i have an 8yr old a 5yr old and a 4 month old. and they have all their limbs so i have 3 kids. i dont get the 2.6 part

01-18-2010, 2:39 AM

Amazing. Well congrats on the grant. I might just take 10 months off and then start that new building project.

Ive heard about these "grants", but just thought it was a myth. Like bigfoot or a jackalope!

01-18-2010, 8:30 PM

Are you trying to say Bigfoot isn't real?

I want a grant, too.
I smell a new bandwagon.
