Phoenix_M: meanmutton: I am Wee Todd Ed: I still don't get how the Storage Wars guys make money.Typical episode:Dave Hester: "I paid $800 for this locker and boy did I score! These old faded dirty jeans that I found in a trash bag I'll sell for $50 bucks a piece in my store. This folding card table with one bent leg easy $350! And best of all this soiled queen sized mattress with blood stains is easily going to get me $500! Total profit eleventy billion dollars!!!"Hester was always the worst at that. On occasion, he actually got some good, new items that sold for real money but most of the time, he was assigning his own obscene value to absolute junk.The others tended to be a little more reasonable, though.Hester bought a locker that had been the inventory of a used book store he was saying he had 10k in books for a locker he paid $500 for; yeah maybe if you opened a bookstore and sold it over a period of years.
Tyrosine: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Maybe Brandi could sell motorboats.Which would be great if this sub-human troglodyte hadn't been balls deep in her:[img.poptower.com image 431x600]Do you really want to fark someone with standards THAT low??!?
Prank Call of Cthulhu: There's always Shipping Wars. It's not without its charms.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Maybe Brandi could sell motorboats.
lc6529: IE: Yeah those jeans with the skidmarks on the inside are worth a hundred dollar bill all day long.
The Great EZE: Brand-who? The new hotness is Candy from Storage Wars New York.
Ctrl-Alt-Del: I am Wee Todd Ed: I still don't get how the Storage Wars guys make money.Hester owns his own auction houseJarrod and the twins sell the crap in a thrift store.Darrell sells the crap at swap meetsYou have to remember most of the TV hype about values, profit, loss, etc are completely made up dramatic crap for the show. Much of that stuff they pass over as "worthless" for the cameras goes right out onto the shelves in their store/flea market table. Fifty miscellaneous doodads that sell for twenty bucks each will more than make up for the cost of most of the lockers they buy. Also, they buy stuff from other, more traditional sources as well, so it's not like the profit from the lockers is the only money they make
EyeballKid: And Hester would run the bid up just to screw with, let's say, either Brandi's husband or Wow Factor guy who looks like a replicant.
Persnickety: To kill yourself via carbon monoxide posioning, you need to put yourself in a small enclosed place. I wonder where he found a place like that.
Flappyhead: No, not the man purse!!
browser_snake: I've watched probably 30 episodes of this show and I've never seen this guy.
