Maybe he should write a book about it -- call it "Kickstarting A Business For Dummies."

I'm sorry, but fark off with your guilt trip at the beginning of your update. As someone who has sat quite [sic], my only crime is donating money to help get this project off the ground. I see no reason why you should be blaming us for your downfall. Most of this update was unnecessary and I'm done with this company.


Hey, I think I've been in a raid with this guy.

Carter cut out middlemen and went directly to a Chinese producer. But soon after he made the link, his Chinese-speaking head of operations quit over disagreements about free shipping and his relationship with a Chinese girl fell apart, leaving him with nobody who could speak Chinese.

Plotting their evil scheme...

We will invest the stupid round-eye's money into our Penis Mightier!

Naturally, you will wish to try it yourself, first.

Stand in the kitty's litter box.  It will absorb the excess Penis Mightier rays.

Yes, she rides like an old pickup with a busted suspension.

I forgot to mention; if erection persists for more than four hours of rough sex... a surgical adjustment might be necessary.

Obamacare does not cover this so,

That was your plan? You picked up a Chinese GF so you could work with China?


That was the best part IMHO. His business failed because he stopped sleeping with someone who could translate for him.

TuteTibiImperes: FormlessOne: lemurs: As I recall, the Ogre Designer's Edition from Steve Jackson Games also had difficulty breaking even despite getting almost $1 million in Kickstarter funds, and that had a bunch of experienced professionals working on it.  So it's no surprise when amateurs wind up suffering from Stretch Goal scope creep and get in way over their heads.

Bingo.

We're going to lose a little money on each one, but we'll make up for it in volume!


sounds like they need a sale!

I was one of the backers in this Kickstarter. All I wanted to say was the end product looked great and I had no issues with the delivery time frame. But Im a patient reasonable person, so I guess Im in the minority

The really funny thing is that he sort of goes on in the original rulebook for Glory to Rome about how smart he must be because he went to MIT.

I might not be very smart, but my household is solvent.

Wonder if the company that hired him will read that story, realize he's a bit moronic and he'll be out of job #2.
