    In denial I see. Now is a good time for you to lend.

    Just made three loans (actually five but three sounds better). And you think that you are not in denial.

    Oh well. Maybe if I don't use my computer before April 1, I can avoid my wife locking me up until then.

    I deny I am in denial too. I just made "two" loans and take the view that if i put something in parentheses it cannot be considered a lie, at least for purposes of this thread.

    Are you suggesting that our mighty team of lenders need a carrot to induce them to make a pledge? Perhaps our expert on cognitive dissonance jbcarioca can expound on this when he has time.

    We no longer need goals to pledge. If there was a $10 million pledge page, many of us could honestly say that we had already paid up.

    Not the core, but like any carrot, it will bring out numbers.

    Carrots are prizes more than goals. Right now we are $160,000 behind team Europe. Catch that and we have conquered the world. To me that is a prize worth pursuing. Then it is just the Christians and and Atheists ahead of us. Where different, they are both great Kiva teams and it will take a long time to catch either..

    I have simply run out of disposible cash at this time. My grandchildren's education funds are clamoring for more. :)

    With $600 in repayments per month forecasted and reinvested for the next year, that should inch the team move to the next level.

    All the access codes that I had for withdrawls from your bank account have stopped working.
    Stop being so secretive, and everyone will make new pledges with your money.

    To be candid any American should be a past master at Cognitive Dissonance if said American has ever studied the US Constitution enough to perceive that cognitive dissonance is at the heart of the American Legal System!! Long live State, Federal and tribal sovereignty each coexisting with the other.

    We have only $1,025 to go to pass Europe and we've just passed $2,500,000 in loans, thus triggering $1,900 in pledges!!:D Please make those loans now so we can pass Europe before too many more hours have gone by!!

    Thanks everybody for magnificent lending!!.

    Well done on overtaking Europe.

    So, what's next? Catch the Christians by year end? Or at least by the 2nd anniversary?

    Next DO at the Vatican? :D

    That would be high drama!!:D I wonder fi we could get a good rate at the Cavalieri, my favorite Rome hotel. Even though it is a bit of a schlep to the Vatican, it does have an excellent view.

    I'm still calling for 6-7.5m by March 1, 2013. According to Canucklehead, we'll need about 6m to catch the Christians. So that is the next target.

    I'll pledge $100 at $3M. I'm always torn between contributing via MP and the skeptics (current #1) ;)
