That's a great update! I really love it.
Though, don't call a statistics silly - it's the primary way to know the truth.
As for my opinion, project needs to collect 50% in the first three days, or it is. Yesterday the funding curve looked pretty bad, like it was going to flatline on 50%, today it's inclination has increased, which is great. I'm totally with you on the point "more work to get message spread", and I wouldn't be confident in Kickstarter; I would be active as if my life depended on it.
Even the spike in the end doesn't happen without a heavy-marketing-lifting.
I wish you a great success in that!
