I wasn't saying he was worthless. I'm just saying it's not difficult to plan for. With Superman, we need to source things like Kryptonite and the like. With Aquaman, step one is pretty much always going to be "Get him on land." Now, I'm not sure where it goes from there, but Step 1 is always the same.

I love that Lurkon is talking to Grickles who is talking to himself because of the quotes.

Sadly, I think that's very unlikely. :( I'm betting on maybe 160K.

My mucking around with the numbers in a spreadsheet makes me confident that we'll likely get to around 200K, especially with the final bump. However, we're going to need a VERY big bump to get us up to the $250k range.

http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/811923 ... projection

This projection shows it ending somewhere between $200K and $280K, and I'm more likely to believe the lower figure.

Yeah, I pay little heed to that projection. It's too wide and simplistic to be of much use.

I really enjoy the "trending" graph. The one that shows a graph of all the previous trends? Not sure why, something about it appeals to me.

Mine is a pretty simple belief that without many 'bumps' due to external promotion, it's likely to trend to 1k a day from here on out. There'll be a late spike, I accept, but that's about it it. Hence my pessimism.

That said, I know I tend to pessimism, so it will probably be higher.

I don't know how you were defining the days, there, and it is considerably later now, but Kicktraq is telling me $635 so far. While slower than the $1000/day that's been bandied about, that's not bad.

It's not bad, but we can officially say we've now had our first sub-1000 day. It's definitely slowing right down. Again: I feel the LRR forum community is tapped out, and it shows in the funding that the hardcore fans are leading the way here: Your average Kickstarter goes at $25 pledges as the average; Loading Ready Run are at $95!

I still think the most powerful weapon would be a mention from Tycho, and I'm kind of sad he's so far chosen not to link it given the close ties between LRR and PA.

Ill give him a call and see what happens.

I would expect that any PA promotion would come in the last week of the Kickstarter.

To quote a PA commenter beneath this week's Checkpoint:

"What? Loading Ready Run is doing a kickstarter! I wan't to get in on that sweet swag, how have I not heard of this before?"

If everyone who's currently supporting the Kickstarter were to throw in another dollar, we'd have Lava Bears instantly. I just put in another t-shirt worth, who's with me?

55 more hours to go. If anyone has any lifetime savings left, this is the moment.
