You know that Indiegogo campaign to crowd-fund the European bailout to the tune of 1.6 billion

Yeah … it didn’t quite get there.

It topped out yesterday and closed with 1.9 million in the bank. 

About 108,650 people contributed, which is kind of amazing. 

No word on whether any of them were named Angela Merkel.
