    Site has since been taken down, as of 10-31-06. I'm not sure how much was raised, but it it was probably quite a lot. Does anyone know?

    I go to college at Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA. Here's we're pretty "open minded," you could say.

    That being said, a HSU student created a website to help benefit the Hurricane Katrina relief effort. It's called www.BoobsForBourbonSt.com

    The idea is, donate to one of five or six charities, send the confirmation number you get from the charity to BoobsForBourbonSt.'s owners, and they'll send you a username and password for their site!

    So far, they have raised over $24,000!!!!! Not only can you donate money, but you can even send in pictures of your chest! Girls and guys are welcome to do so.

    Check it out at BoobsForBourbonSt.com

    What's more, the guy who created Spongebob Squarepants graduated from HSU with a degree in marine biology. Go figure!

    That is quite interesting... If I had source of income right now, I'd join in an instant! OT but, my boyfriend and I just went up to Humboldt (ok, not really 'just' it was in August) and we were lucky enough to go to Sierra Nevada. LOVE LOVE LOVE the restaurant and the gift shop! And somebody had previously told me that everybody upstate was racist and well, hicks, but no... everybody we met and encountered were incredibly sweet and helpful. I love how all the servers always ask, "Anything I can get you drink besides water?"

    I've heard about Humboldt - but it had nothing to do with gift shops, or restaurants.
    Glad you had a good time though.

    Lemme guess, what you've heard has to do w/ organic forms of 'entertainment,' right? :p Truth be told, we were actually up there for a track day at Thunderhill Raceway and we drove a bit out of our way to get to Sierra Nevada because well, Thunderhill area is a good deal closer to Humboldt than where we live so we might as well have trekked a little further, ya know?

    We seem to get that reputation wherever we go. Truth be told, most of us don't like being associated with "that." These days, it's a very small population of irresponsible people who still use.

    has anyone joined? is it worth 5 bucks? hahah

    an interesting idea for sure

    a few weeks ago there was a posting on craigslist to have a topless dancing night for katrina relief basically. seemed sketchy, but still not a horrible idea. people like nudity, people will pay to see it, and the money is needed, so why not put the two together.

    Well, if you're going to spend money on pr0n you might as well benefit charity while doing it.

    I joined. Not for the pictures, not even sure I'll look at them ;). But it's for a good cause, of course. That's why I did it. Not for the pictures. The cause. Of course.
