Just how good is a Chipotle burrito? With your help and money, Noboru Bitoy wants to find outBitoy launched a Kickstarter to fundraise money to buy a burrito. There’s no reason for why he’s doing this other than that he can, as BetaBeat points out.

He quickly reached his goal of 8 bucks, but people wouldn’t stop donating. He is currently up to $193 in donations with 23 days left to fundraise. But Bitoy now wants to deliver more, thanks to the outpouring of monetary support he's received. So he changed his goals up a little. Now, when you donate money to Bitoy's venture, BetaBeat reports Bitoy will deliver on the following:

For $50, Mr. Bitoy will buy four burritos and consume them over the following days as a test "to truly see how the burrito flavor is changed when it is a leftover meal." And for $175 pledged, he’ll devour 24 variations of a chicken burrito and included a colorful infographic to help you map the flavorful walkabout. 

CNET, who also reported on the Kickstarter, said it best: there are worse things you can spend a dollar on than someone's enthusiastic burrito-based fundraiser.
