I watched this show one time it was pretty funny. They had this lady who wanted to "sell dis here iPad". She has in her possession what appeared to be a late 90s IBM thinkpad. She wanted $500 for it and refused to believe that it was not a genuine iPad and could not even fathom why they wouldn't give her the $500 she wanted.

Strategeryz0r: Keigh: I've been watching this show, and as fluff entertainment it's alright i guess, but i freaking can't stand the daughter anymore. Yeah, the brother's a real dick, but she is just annoying, and she enjoys making all the drama worse by screeching. So help me if my boyfriend's prediction comes true, he thinks she is going to leave the show and start her own pawn shop and have her own show. Who would watch that? I wouldn't watch that.

A lot of sweaty nerds who wish they could get with her? I'm sure they all think the same thing of the new chick the pawn stars guys hired.


Ew, Hadn't considered her, of all people, to be any kind of sex symbol. At least the girl on Pawn Stars is attractive. Les' daughter looks like a fat bull dog. Now that I'm thinking about her sex life (fark you very much for that) what do you wanna bet her "type" is? I'm guessing it has to be either lanky and greasy like her dad, or 6'11" and black. She probably picked/banged all their security guards.

I saw one episode where a lady brought in a laptop and did not know the password too it and the previous owner had used his picture on it as a user picture and it obviously wasn't the lady selling it, she was real pissed when they wouldn't buy it.

SharkTrager: MythDragon: DanZero: Typical Hardcore Pawn episode breakdown

- Moment involving family drama
- Rare/unusual item that Les always "wants to buy", but the owner always asks too much, and they don't buy it
- Black person tries to pawn what they think is expensive jewelry and is told its fake and security kicks them out
- Someone comes in with sob story and takes a reduced offer on their item to get some cash
- The resolution/continuation of family drama from beginning of the episode which will spill into the next one.

/why yes, I do watch the show why do you ask?

You forgot:
Black person comes in with crappy item.
"I want 50 bucks for this crappy item"
'No, your item is crappy. I don't want it. I wouldn't take it for free'
"Oh Hells naw, you goin' BUY my shiat or I ain't leaving 'till you give me 50 dollars."
'I don't think you understand how this works. I don't want it, therefor I am not buying it'
"Nope. You goin' buy this, and you goin' buy this now!"
*security* Time to leave
"This is bullshiat, ya'll. Just give me 50 dollars!"
*black person is escorted out. Leaves item on counter and walks away*

And you forgot:
"I'm here to pick up my TV"
"I'm sorry, you are late and it's past the grace period so we sold it.
"Aw hells naw, Ima get my farking TV!"
"Mam, mam, mam, it's gone. You were late and you didn't make your payments."
"This is bullshiat. Ya'll people be stealing from people and shiat. Ima (call the Po-lice/kill your lilly white ass).
"That's it, get the fark out of here! Security!"
Woman is escorted from store screaming threats, yet still signs the release to be on the show.


You also forgot:
"I'm here to pick up my (insert item)"
"I'm sorry. We can't find it"
"WHAT!?"
"SETH! YOU farkED UP AGAIN! HOW CAN I TRUST YOU TO RUN THE STORE WHEN YOU CAN'T EVEN KEEP TRACK OF (item)?"

That's slightly worse than two guys riding around in a van giving people 1/4 of what something's worth while the tatted up, hot secretary/admin assistant/sales clerk lady sits back at the shop and gets way too little screen time.

However, it is better than the family run (sort of) Las Vegas-based pawnshop show where:

1. Dude comes in with something of historical value that grandpa probably gave him as a family heirloom, never to be sold
2. Grandpa dies, dude needs meth/figures on making a killing/wife told him to clean out garage or no annual blowjob on his birthday/whatever, goes to pawnshop
3. Pawnshop owner looks it over, figures it's worth something, but claims "not to know what to offer", suggests bringing in his "expert" to price it
4. "Expert", a friend of pawnshop owner therefore inclined to lowball the amount but dude is too stupid to realize this, looks over item and then rattles off a 30 second history speech, throws a number out
5. Pawnshop owner always goes much slower still with offer and more often than not, dude meets him in the middle, getting thoroughly ripped off, but doesn't seem to care or doesn't understand what just happened
6. Some side story about a car/family/whatever that paints pawnshop owner in a positive light

JohnAnnArbor: Sentient: HotWingConspiracy: I don't get it...he wanted to sell fake money to a pawn shop? Is this a thing?

Yep. Pawn shops are largely part of the cash economy, so if you're only looking to launder a few thousand, selling your fake 20's in bulk at 20% face value is a lot easier than buying a bazillion packs of gum. They probably didn't buy only because the cameras were rolling.

Then what? Pass the bills themselves? It's way too risky. They would have busted them anyway.


But you'd be trading counterfeit cash at 20% face value for... Counterfeit cash

At 20% face value for real cash, that wouldn't be enough to cover the cost of ink.

If it's this clip then it kind of looks like a Transformer Prime to me. Not worth $500 to a Pawn Shop, but depending on condition you might be able to sell one used to the end user for something approaching that number. It's not an iPad, but it's certainly not a late 90s Thinkpad.

Yeah thats it your right not a 90s thinkpad. It was about 6 or 7 months ago when I saw it couldn't really remember that well. That being said its still not even close to an iPad.

'Well it's in good condition, and can tell by the make and markings it's authentic. How much were you looking for'

'I dunno. I was hoping for around $5,000'

'Well it IS a nice musket, but the thing is, these were a dime a dozen and the market is pretty much over saturated right now, and even if I DID find somebody, odds are it will be just sitting on the shelf collecting dust. What I can do is give you $100'

Not sure. Saw a TV show about the Bureau of Engraving and Printing that showed a room full of people teasing apart wads of damaged cash to determine how much is there, then reimburse the submitter. No charge, if I remember right, and it isn't easy work. The lady they interviewed was dealing with a glob of discolored bills that had been partially eaten by termites.

That looks like a plastic case. The Transform Prime tablets I've seen have metallic finishes to the cases. So I would guess netbook instead. Plus, if it was a Transformer Prime tablet, I would think that the seller would either be more likely to know what it is or immediately assume that it was stolen.

Well, on Pawn Stars, they never actually show anybody actually, um, pawning stuff. The people are always outright selling the items on the show. Pawn brokers have their place, I suppose, if you need cash fast. Then again, a cash advance against your credit card is probably a better deal (still a ripoff, of course).

I dunno. I put pawn shops in the same category as cash checking places. They exist to skim money off of poor people who suck at math. It's kind of despicable because they're making money off people who can least afford to be fleeced. But on the other hand, free will is a biatch and it's not really my problem.

I watch Pawn Stars. I'm totally addicted to it. I don't really know why.

I've watched a fair bit of that show on Netflix recently, and I don't think I've seen them screw anyone over. They seem to try to keep a 25-50% profit margin depending on how easily the item will sell, but that makes sense for a brick-and-mortar store with employees and insurance costs and such.

I recall one instance when a woman brought in her mother or grandmother's broach with no idea what it was worth. Rick asked her what she wanted for it, and she said she was hoping for about $2,000. Rick said that he'd love to give her a couple grand for it, but then pointed out that it was actually made by Fabergé (as in the Eggs) and offered her $15,000, which she accepted.

It's a pretty simple trade-off: if you have the luxury of taking the time and money that are required to get top dollar for your item, then you're free to have it appraised and put it up for auction yourself. If you want or need money at the moment, then you need to go to someone who doesn't pay top dollar.

There are two things I find hilarious about Hardcore pawn.

1) Everyone that freaks the fark out is perfectly mic'ed.
2) Not a single person who comes in the place can pronounce jewellery.

I was on the "Bulletproof Gator" episode. Offered my motorcycle to first Ashley and later Les. Did not accept the very low price he offered. My black dof was on the truck tailgate.

JohnAnnArbor: jayessell: From the photograph it looks like a $5 bill that's been bleached and reprinted.

If it were bleached again would the treasury accept it as a damaged/worn out $5?

It's not as if it had passed through a dog.

Not sure. Saw a TV show about the Bureau of Engraving and Printing that showed a room full of people teasing apart wads of damaged cash to determine how much is there, then reimburse the submitter. No charge, if I remember right, and it isn't easy work. The lady they interviewed was dealing with a glob of discolored bills that had been partially eaten by termites.


I had over $200 that actually DID pass through a dog. They reimbursed me fully.

/followed my dog around for three days
//vomited more than once
///found most of the bills, and all serial numbers
////did a lot of the work for them, didn't just send them a pile of shiat, but had all the bits washed (somewhat) and taped to blank paper
//worst jigsaw puzzle ever

Quaker: iheartscotch: I enjoy the pawn stars show for 2 reasons;

1. All the cool stuff that comes in.

2. It reminds me to never, ever, ever, ever deal with any pawn shop. Because; you can and will get screwed over

I've watched a fair bit of that show on Netflix recently, and I don't think I've seen them screw anyone over. They seem to try to keep a 25-50% profit margin depending on how easily the item will sell, but that makes sense for a brick-and-mortar store with employees and insurance costs and such.

I saw that and liked that.

She actually asked for $1,000 and Rick told her he couldn't in good conscience give a thousand... and then offered ten thousand.

Pretty cool even if he did make a ton more.

/People selling at pawn shops are pretty happy to get what they get seeing as they could have waited a little longer and gone eBay and all...

But a lot of people don't understand that it's a business. It's their job to get the merchendise for as little as they possibly can, and sell it for as much as they can

That's done every day, in the business world. Not just pawn shops.

I've tried to make this joke many times on counterfeit threads. Did noone but me listen to "Legal Tender" by the B-52s?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWBb593zxrw
