Jimmy Wales and the power of "crazy eyes"

Look into the eyes of multi-millionaire, Jimmy Wales.

He's trying to hypnotize you.

For some reason, people making public pleas believe that "crazy eyes" show conviction, passion, integrity.

Jimmy Wales looks like he's in danger of becoming a Scientologist.

This image of him looks like it was taken three seconds after his financial advisor told him all his money was tied up with Bernie Madoff, followed by an adnoidal, "Gotcha!"

These are the eyes of someone about to ask you to do something you don't want to do.

Like support an online encyclopedia that any wingnut in a coldwater flat with an Internet connection can edit.

I realize we live in a Fox News post-fact world where everyone is entitled to their own facts, right or wrong, so I guess Jimmy Wales should get your money.

Give it to him.

If for no other reason than he looks like he'll run nude through a shopping mall without it, while singing the "Battle Hymn of the Republic."

Wales is not a multi-millionaire. Wikipedia is non-profit, his salary is something like $40K a year

At the risk of offending you by calling you a putz, you're a putz.

I didn't say Jimmy Wales got rich working for Wikipedia.

I said that he's a multi-millionaire.

His net worth is in the neighborhood of $25 million.

He is a business man.
