Daily Afternoon Randomness (46 Photos)

You'll pardon the late DAR today. As many of you know, we posted a story about Taylor Morris, the Navy EOD tech who lost all four of his limbs when a mine exploded underneath him in Afghanistan last month. I asked the Chivers to raise $30,000 for a down payment on his dream cabin when he was finally able to return home to Iowa.

The Chivers had other ideas. They dismissed the idea of a down payment and decided to pay for the entire log cabin instead. We raised the goal of $30,000 in an hour flat.

In the last 3 hours since I posted it, Taylor's story has gone viral. We have just crossed the $95,000. We're on the cusp of hitting $100,000!!! I'm speechless at the Chivers' generosity as is Taylor and the entire Morris family. I will continue update the page through today into tomorrow.

Original Story HERE. Donate HERE.

Super-Awesome Update: We just hit $100,000 and the donations show no sign of stopping.

Late Night Update
: I'll continue these updates first thing in the morning. Even late into the night the donations continue to surge. We've hit $143,000. You've exceeded the initial goal by over $100,000. Words escape me.

          I did the conversion….it came out to: $133,362.02 !!! That A-hole could have bought Taylor a dream cabin all by himself instead of one dinner, I'm assuming, out with a bunch of DUDES.

          • PRLaw

            st tropez, in Brasil really? Dude not only you don't know how to read, or some geography, much less google a place!
            Anyways, I wonder who I'm the world will order a Coke when this guy was ordering D Perignon Rose, Beluga Caviar and lobsters? I bet the person who order the cokes put ketchup on the lobster too and ask Where are the fries?

    • Kodos

    • Jason

      Why did it take until the second page for someone to mention her?! She is amazing!

      • SulsaKnight

        Agreed!! Although, in my defense, it wasn't to the second page by the time I scrolled all the way down.

    • Tom

      There is no better way to close out the DAR

  • Dave

    #40 ten bucks for a coca cola light??? what a ripoff

    • Tava

      What is worse is that those are Euors.

      • SLAPCHOP

        No, they aren't. Clown. Its in Brazil. Its like 0.50 US to 1 Brazil REAL

        • Aaron

          Do some research idiot! http://www.nikkibeach.com/sttropez/

          It doesn't take a mad scientist to compare the info on the receipt to the website. Unless of course France moved to Brazil and you're the only one who knows it.

      • Orcslayer

        Maybe a bill before the Euro? The french francs where not that high back then….

    #40 so what is that in dollars? Cuz if he paid 50k for a single bottle of dom, he's a chump

    • libussa

      it's not in dollars, it's in Euros…
      and it's a Mathusalem, so it's not one but 8 bottles.
      Still though, pricey…

      • http://www.cupcakesbymartha.com MarthaJeane

        My god. That's worse! I know this guy Taylor who could put that money to much better use. Just sayin'. #2

    • Tava

      St. Tropaz is in France, so those would be Euros. Lol even more expansive then dollars.


        St. TropEz is NOT in France. Its in Brazil.

        Stupidity is a virus…its spreading…ahhhH!!!!

        • PTG86

          It's certainly "expansive"

        • puddin

          It is in France! My lord, YOU have the virus!

        • PRLaw

    • Dr_StrangePants

      $20 for 2 Coca Colas?
      —That CANNOT be state-side

      • http://www.cupcakesbymartha.com MarthaJeane

        It's not, it's in France and in Euros, so it's more like $25!! http://www.nikkibeach.com/sttropez/
        Seriously, it's just obscene to be spending enough money to buy a small house on alcohol.

        • Dr_StrangePants

    • Arioch02

      It's € : ) (1€ = 1,25 $)

      It's in St-Tropez (France), a city well known there for the high cost of living because of the jet-set.

      50000 € for 1,6 galon of champagne called Mathusalem Dom Perignon Rose ;
      and an other 40000 € for 2 smaller bottles of the same Champagne.
