She comes off as trying to hard. If she doesn't like an idea she seems to go out of her way to come up with the meanest most insulting thing she can say because she's trying to be a hard-ass. Comes off as fake as hell.

Warrior Kermit: styckx: HotWingConspiracy: It's storage wars, but instead of cruddy storage lockers people are bidding on the ideas and livelihoods of people that hit that right note of hapless and greedy.

Unlike Storage Wars producers don't hide fake rating grabbing items in the Shark Tank.

Can't stand Storage Wars.. A whole garage of shiat and magically everyone finds that ONE item that is worth thousands.

I did a short stint at a storage company and we had those auctions, ain't nothing like storage wars, one room bags of clothes when for $2 she bought in hopes of maybe finding money in the pockets. I think the highest went for $500 had some furniture and appliances in it.   The military ones are better but it takes quite a while to let a unit rented by someone in the military to go. if they are overseas the unit is untouchable


I used to watch Storage Wars from time to time.  It kind of got ruined for me when my parents' storage company mistakenly sold their unit.  I wish I was kidding.  The company knew they had screwed up and paid them for what was in there, but there was a lot of irreplaceable stuff in that locker from 50+ years of life together.  My mother was devastated.

Somehow, I just don't enjoy that show as much any more.  I suppose I should take some comfort in the fact that it is totally fake, but I don't.

Storage wars is fake as hell. Didn't a couple of people from that show sue them for fixing auctions and filling some peoples storage units with valuable stuff?

Gubbo: I'm very fond of the people who come on the show with no patents. And just expect these business people, not to mention the general public, not to just flat out steal their product/idea.


Sometimes everybody involved obviously didn't do their homework.  There was an episode where a guy was selling a thing that acted as an interlock that prevented a car from being started unless the seat belt was fastened (to get your teen driver to buckle up, etc.).  It was an aftermarket device that required a mechanic to install and he had a patent on it.

The Sharks all agreed that it would be useful, but only if they could get an actual automobile company to license the patent and offer it as a factory option.

Problem: Maybe the patent was valid as an aftermarket option, but it certainly wouldn't be a valid patent as a factory option, because the US government mandated an identical device in for all 1974 model year vehicles.  They were rushed into production and frequently didn't work, plus at the time lots of people didn't wear seat belts and didn't like the whole "Big Brother" aspect of it, so everybody biatched at Congress who overturned the law for MY 1975.  But obviously you can't patent something that was mandated to be installed over 40 years ago.

I don't know. If you can patent rounded corners, looking at you Apple, then who knows.

If your implementation is different enough from things before it you probably can.

I think she can't stand Lori Granier and that amuses me.  The Go Pro douche does suck, he's by far the most annoying person on there.
Cuban bugs me sometimes, though. I know the idea is that Mr.Wonderful is the bad guy, but Cuban comes across as such a dick sometimes. Not like, he's telling it like it is and you can't handle the truth and stuff, just being a dick to people.
The one move that several of them pull that I don't like at all is the "take my offer right now, don't even talk to someone else or I'm out" crap. I've mostly seen Cuban and Granier do that, although Herjavek pulled it off the other night.

englaja: Yet they rejected my idea for a show where people are half submerged in water and forcefed milk and honey. Whoever produces the most bubbles without befouling the water is the winner.

I call it Shart Tank.


I'm going to start working "befouling" into the legal briefs I write.
