Tell me about it. My lame attempt at turning this into a pun thread is about as likely to succeed as fairies and pixels being real.

Im just saying, most people who can spare 50k to a random video-game that was mentioned, wouldent spend 50k on a random video-game that was mentioned. Im just saying, people with money arnt the kind of people who give away money, and if they do its to charity.

Edit; If you think about it, we are being kind of greedy here, I mean, imagine all the good things other than your favorite video game that 50k could have gone to? (if its real)

Well, we (my family) recieved a $500 "donation" on our quickly-mounting water bill that's allowed us to finally bathe in our own god damn house again for the first time in 4 months.

God bless rich people, eh? :P

Though a one pixel oddity doesn't really seem that significant.
It's always significant. You can tell by the pixels.

Except, as I said, it could also be a minor issue with the CSS, especially given the rather short line height being used for the two values.

It would also be easier to simply copy the source from an actual receipt and mock it up locally and just take a screenshot than trying to photoshop one without leaving more evidence than that behind.
Or even easier yet to use Firebug.  Well, either way, we'll see soon enough.  If it happens, all the better, and if it doesn't, then nothing's lost.

Now I want to donate $50k just to see what kind of crayon art I would get.

We need Toady's input on this: How epic can the crayon artwork get? If i donate 1k, what can I expect?

I believe the article on this said that Toady, ThreeToe, and their grandmother are the ones responsible for making the crayon art based upon the worth of the donation.

I can only imagine what would happen with the large scale donations. They might commission a statue of you or something.

This is a basalt statue of Urist McDonator. The item is an image of Urist McDonator the Bay12 contributor depicted as a male dwarf in basalt by ToadyOne. Urist McDonator is striking a triumphant pose

fwiw I doubt credit cards / paypal would allow for $50000 charge but of course for Toady's sake I hope it's true.

$50k would probably get them to repaint the Sistine Chapel in ASCII.
