You have to upgrade the C64 to 3 PS3s. :D

But... That defeats the point of the 64 in the Commodore 64 and Nintendo 64. Because 64. 3 PS3's does not equal 64! It doesn't even have a 6, OR a 4! You sir, are not numberwang.

...But now that makes me wonder.. What would a Nintendo 64-inspired LRR be? Logo and all..

Finally got around to backing, meager student amount though it is.

I figure orange juice will make an unpleasant addition to many things people are putting in the Iron Stomach smoothies.

Personally, I'm considering raw pizza dough as the texture created by it will make whatever the other two ingredients are wholly unappetizing and much more difficult to chug.

I'd avoid anything raw that have eggs or anything like that. Mostly because we don't want the crew to get sick from this.

Well, my next choice after that was a pack of blue raspberry Kool-Aid, no sugar. Not only will it be obnoxiously sour, but it'll stain their lips and tongue blue for the remainder of the process.

That'd be better. And I'm sure there's ways to make pizza dough without eggs. It's more something that I realized they never said anything about. And getting them sick would be bad, mmkay?

I finally threw my small pledge into the ring. Much less than I wanted to, but the life of a temp is unpredictable, especially one who spent the entire length of this Kickstarter recovering from wisdom teeth surgery instead of working. I did want to be able to support LRR somehow, though.

Oh yeah, texture's important, too. That's why it's going to be maximum pulp orange juice!

13 hours to go, if the Kickstarter was in my time zone. When will the countdown broadcast start? Should we count down to it?

the countdown should also start 2 hours before the end of it. So if you know what time it should end in your time zone subtract two hours and that should give you when it will start. Alternatively look at @loadingreadyrun's twitter feed as I can imagine them tweeting when they are going live.

Ditto what Dutch Guy said.

To be honest, I'm almost not bothered any more. If that sounds blasé, it didn't mean too; it's just that the main goal has been fulfilled, we're getting Season 11, Crapshots and Lava Bears (which were the three I really wanted to see), but most importantly the crew have got all the cash they need to make it PLUS around forty thousand in change to make it even more awesome and to prevent them living off scraps for a year. That... feels nice.

yeah, I don't play D&D, so lava bears has always been neither here nor there to me. I really wanted CrapShots and obviously season 11, and double crap would be awesome, but as far as I'm concerned, this has been a great success already. Anything else is really just a bonus. Also, 3am is just silly...

Pizza dough doesn't involve eggs and generally raw eggs are fine. I eat them pretty regularly in salad dressing and occasionally smoothies.

Raw eggs are only a problem if you are a small child, a elderly person, or someone with a very weaken immune response and you happen across the 1 in a billion eggs that have Salmonella or other food born pathogen. Contamination of an egg in North America or Europe is VERY rare, they have almost entirely eliminated the bacteria from commercial poultry through breading and cleaning procedures its not gone but its pretty rare.

Ughggghhhhh... That's not entirely true. Eggs are pretty safe, but commercial broiler chickens are chock-a-block full of Salmonella and many, many other bacteria. Many harmless, some not. Source; I worked as a co-op student studying bacterial levels incident in chicken faecal matter, skin, bedding, and air in a commercial setup.

What the over/under percent chance on if we'll make 180k? currently 177,707 with almost 10 hours to go. I think it'll be close but I don't know if I can extrapolate well enough to come up with a good guess.

I say 100% we break 180K and then at the last second someone pulls 80K of support and the kickstarter fails.

I'm pretty sure we'll make it. It's gone up a fair bit in the last twenty four hours, and I'm expecting another bump, perhaps a couple thousand, during the stream. At this point, I would be surprised if we didn't get to 180k.

I'm pretty sure we're going to lose a bunch of people right at the end. 5% chance this whole thing fails.

I'm hoping we get to 180k. It shouldn't be too much of a stretch. I'm disappointed we won't get more Things On My Head or the calendar though. And despite my feelings on it, I'm also disappointed in no Season 1. But I can't complain about getting all of the awesomeness this kickstarter promises.

I'm calling 95% chance of the Kickstarter failing. It's sad to see, but at this point, I just don't know how it could succeed.
