tillerman35: The problem with KS is obvious: People see legit ventures getting oodles of funding and think they can get the same for their idea for a game about training a virtual dog to bark commands at a 3D yeti in a mecha jump suit that fights llama bombers while solving sudoku puzzles rendered in 8-bit graphics that morph into craft ideas for your wedding planner.

ZAZ: VC dudes: welcome to the real world, kids

VC dudes: Welcome to our world, except if we win we get millions and if you win you get a T-shirt, a game, or an album with a fair market value of less than $100.



of course VCs toss i hundreds of thousands to millions and expect to lose money 70% of the time break even 20% make a small gain 9%, and hope that the 1% hits it big is enough to offset the losses and make a nice profit in the mix,

you toss in 50 and hope they get your tshirt size right
