Your favorite Kickstarter/Go-Fund Me scams
Psudo-science products where the producers either doesn't know what they're doing or is actively screwing their intended fundraisers have always amused me, and made me doubt the future of humanity.

I want to see it.

Here's a good one:







Remember, you don't have to show any data or proof if you have a flashy commerical!

It's not a kickstarter or go fund me but the Hyperloop is a great scam currently running.
