    I got in at the $25 level right after it funded, 6 hours before ending.

    Oh, that is cool. I want one, but can't justify it.

    I can't justify it either, especially since I haven't soldered in 15+ years. Still in =)

    Thanks for the heads up on the Randi film Sam. A personal hero of mine, and I had no idea! I went in big. The conjuring book signed by Randi plus the Bluray and some coasters.

    Had no idea on the twist either. Should be an interesting film and yes, definitely a personal hero for his initiatives debunking stuff. We have a rise of pseudoscience among my FB friends and it is driving me nuts, theres even a few threads of it here at HTF. Very frustrating. Another one of possible interest: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1431439776/who-nose

    Oh agree completely. The discovery and History channels are NOT helping! The best was South Parks spoof of Ancient Aliens. The satire clips they did of the show actually played like a real show. In the commentary they comment that despite trying to make fun of AA, it plays 95% like an actual AA show.
    I'm not sure about that Who Nose one. Or the game pad thing either. If that game pad had a MAME emulator for all the roms I collected, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    I think that's the general idea, it is a portable MAME box.

    Really? I saw android all over it and didn't realize it was doing MAME.

    Liar hit it's funding goal with 15 days left. They have added a new $25 level that gets you a deck of cards designed by him and if they hit $250k everyone who pledges 45 and higher gets the cards in their bundle. I bumped mine from $30 to $45 to now get the DVD and if they hit $250 the cards to boot.

    In for Jersey Devil. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1336904045/legendary-monsters-toys-of-urban-legend-and-folklo?ref=category I'd have signed up for Chupacabra too but that would be double the price.... Shipping is outrageous.
