    Did the Sharks ask anything about the Swoveralls being insanely easy to rip-off? I think that it was discussed for one of the pitches, and they said something about first to market, but I don't remember if it was for the Swoveralls. At any rate, I don't see how even first to market would be enough, because it seems like something quite easy for any national brand to swoop in and do, and then sales would drop precipitously, and existing inventory, materials, machinery, etc. would be a gigantic cash drain.

    Just ordered the SomniFix strips from Amazon...they'll be here tomorrow! I noticed that his competitors are vertical strips, which matches what he answered when Mark asked about competitor knock-offs. I don't understand the sports thing either. What the guy said, was that they are working on an adhesive that does not dislodge when it meets liquid, and that breathing properly is incredible for improving sports performance. Baffling. Clearly you aren't going to use this during sports, because you need to be taking in oxygen fully from your nose and mouth. So if it's not for use during sports, then it's not for sports, and it's just tangential in that sleeping better will help you perform sports better. The only 'adhesive' part I can figure out, is if you sweat or drool while you sleep. Yes, the explanation is how it physically works But the underpinning is your bank, so I'm in agreement about not understanding how the 'unbanked' can use it.

    S10:13 Tell All: Part 2

    Yes please!
  4. Watched the new Morning Mysteries movie, Countdown to Murder. Really, seriously, how can TPTB not see the absolute total lack of chemistry between Holly and Rick? They kissed, and it was basically Rick's face getting nearer to Holly's, then him placing his lips on Holly's, holding it for a set amount of time, and then moving away. I also noticed that in addition to Rick not being able to act with his words, he also can't act with his face. The expressions he makes are just so lame. And finally, because I actually did fall asleep a little during it, did they ever show the Salsa Festival that they had been taking lessons for? I almost wonder if they put the dancing into the plot just because of Rick's DWTS history. At any rate, no way were any of the people in that class beginners who were having their first class!! And on a shallow level, he was far more handsome on DWTS than he is now.

    S07.E16 Lashanta's Story

    Preach!!! I've often wished someone would do with McD's like what Jared did with Subway (before we knew he was a perv!). If I was the child, and she asked me to do something, I'd be sooo tempted to say, "Let your precious food do that for you, cause my give-a-damn's busted!" But it wasn't a base hit in the ninth inning, because the show ended right after her one success and we have no idea how it went when she tried to relearn to stand and walk, and if she even qualified for WLS. So really it was more like she managed a bunt for her second at-bat, but has two more to go. As we've noticed with other poundticipants, but even moreso with her...the food that they fantasize about is such crappy, gross-looking, heavy, food. I seriously wonder if they have ever experienced truly well-cooked flavorful healthy meals and simply prefer the crap, or just prefer the crap 'cause it's all they know and it's plentiful.

    Someone who's more knowledgeable than me can hopefully speak to this...they all very adamantly said that they had never even spoken of leaving Lehi until the persecution thing. Is that true?

    S16. E20. Hail & Farewell

    I absolutely could not make any sense of that at all, whatsoever, in any way. And GIbbs said that was two months before she died, so she kept a blood stain on her dress uniform without cleaning it? Seems like the writers are confused as well. Several eps ago they were shipping "Tellie" pretty hard, but now they've got to know that there was nothing remotely cute/endearing about what he did with the tickets, and we wouldn't wish Torres on Ellie in a million years.
  8. Just watched the Gourmet Detective 'Death Al Dente' episode, and saw that one of the actresses was the villainess from the Morning Show Mystery 'Mortal Mishaps' episode (Jordana Largy). I figured there's no way that the same actress would be the villainess in both mystery franchises, but sure enough, she was. That just seems so odd to me, since there are bound to be many, many actresses that they could have hired.

    S10:12 Tell All: Part 1

    I guess the host is a mini-Robyn. She mentioned something like, ".....as happens every year", or some other thing implying that she has been with these Tell-Alls for all those years...just like how Robyn does regarding the fambly's past! Plus, she made a big blunder near the start when she was talking to Meri and said that the Parowan house "has been a dream of yours, and your family". Uh, big-time no. We need Kevin Frazier, who just did the Married at First Sight reunion. He asked the tough questions, and persisted for answers, all in a respectful way. He kicked a**! So did I....so, uh, what did it actually mean? I'm not sure that it was actually that Garrison and Dayton made no comments and weren't asked any questions, but more that the episode was edited and their comments didn't make the cut. Good point! I would be very angry if I were one of her kids, and would want to throw it back to her every time she said something like, "I love you."

    S44.E18: Emma Stone / BTS

    The video parodies are funny enough, but I just don't understand why SNL is choosing videos that are more than 30 years old, and weren't majorly popular videos in the first place. I'm sure there are old R&B videos to parody that way more people would recognize. I just thought that it wasn't a very good performance by Keaton. The multi-countries thing should have come off funnier than it did. And even though I was alive when his Batman came out, and saw the movie, I don't have any recollection of specific lines, to have recognized that they were spoofing. Much prefer Armisen's Joy...Kate's had no oomph to it. I had never heard of them before, or seen them. And although I enjoy a good boy band dance as much as anybody, I couldn't get into theirs because it seemed like they were shoe-horning dance steps into a song, regardless of whether the steps actually went with the music or not.. It almost looked like a men's gymnastics floor routine with the number of moves they were trying to pack in to the song.

    General True Crime Shows

    I watched two shows with detective incompetence, and just realized that they were both from Homicide City, which is set in Philadelphia. Doesn't speak well of their police force! Here's what they did: In Season 2, Episode 1 (Family Tragedy), a woman was killed. Their lead suspect had an alibi, that involved him and a buddy driving into Philly, going into a club that had a mosh pit, the pit got a bit extreme, and the suspect's face got scratched up. So the detective goes to the buddy to check out the alibi, and says, "Your friend says that you went to the club, and he got his face scratched up in the mosh pit. Is that true?" WTAF? Thank goodness the buddy was a stand-up guy, and said that the club was pretty dead that night and there wasn't even a mosh pit. But most buddies, especially of people that would commit murder and are probably not so reputable themselves, don't want to narc out their friends, and would have said basically, "Yep, that's what happened." What stunning incompetence! In Season 2, Episode 2 (Pine Hill Massacre), a husband and wife (and one young daughter) are murdered in their home in the middle of the night. The detectives cannot find anything at all about this family that would merit that, and there was no robbery, so it really was just an execution. Then they find that a man who lives two doors down, was supposed to testify in an upcoming trial. and they have found a connection to a hit man regarding this man who was supposed to testify. Well you don't have to be Agatha Christie to think maybe the hit occurred on the wrong house! And lo and behold, that's exactly what happened, but it didn't occur to them to pursue that angle until a jailhouse informant told them about it. And just a pet peeve, that I hear all the time on these shows...people pronounce "corroborate" more like a combination with "cooperate", so it comes out as "co-ob-er-ate". Aaarrggghhhh! Thank you....rant over for the day (or at least for the afternoon)!

    S08.E15: Finale Reunion

    There are sooo many more reasons why people stay.... To name just a few: poor self-esteem so they don't think anyone else will want them, shame so they don't think they deserve anything more, worn down to feel there's no point in trying to get away. I'm not saying anything about whether abuse does or doesn't apply to Kate; I'm just saying that simply because none of the few reasons listed by Madding Crowd apply to Kate, doesn't mean she couldn't still have been a victim of abuse. We saw and heard nothing to indicate any type of a fetish on Kate's part, and I imagine that the producers would have loved to have aired that type of thing, and I would think Dr. Blondie and Dr. Pepper would have feasted on it. As for a crush that she can't help herself about...to hook up with someone because you can't help yourself is seriously problematic behavior.

    S07.E15: Angela's Story

    She even said when she called for a ride to the ER, that she's going there so she can prove to him that she was really sick....not that she was going there because she actually felt really sick. Her voiceover narration for that whole thing was very weird....sounded like she was trippin'. I'm no fan of the nanny state, but it's been shown from past statistics for over 45 years, that for every 10 percent increase in cigarette price, you can expect overall cigarette use to drop 3 to 5 percent and an even greater reduction among youths — 6 to 7 percent. Given that obesity is becoming a very costly (to society as a whole, to the family members, to our health care costs, etc.) epidemic, maybe it's time to consider it. I do too, especially noticeable in her face, but I noticed it the most on what I think was the call after the I-can-pull-a-number-out-of-my-ass call. We've never seen a poundticipant with the cojones to make up a number and deliver it to Dr. Now, and she did it so assertively and factually. But wow she gained it all back by the end. If she really had wanted to pursue that option, she would have found a doctor that was willing to do that, met with him/her about it, and then been able to present that idea to Dr. Now as a fully-formed realistic possibility. But, well, yeah.... But you can't just go get multiple surgeries somewhere...they cost money. And I'm guessing that many surgeons would be reluctant to perform a non-medically-necessary surgery on someone so large, sort of like how Dr. Now is one of the few willing to do WLS surgery on people so large. And she hadn't lost much weight yet. I forget specifically what she said, but more than once it became clear that her whole reason for doing the WLS program with Dr. Now was to get the lymphedema surgery. Yes, the specific ice cream run they showed was for Lacy only, and I don't think for a second that was an accident. Angela wanted that to be shown, since she knows we all think (know) that the ice cream runs are for her as well. When Angela's narration was saying about how she can now take Lacy out places, IIRC two of the three places/reasons she mentioned were to get a reward or treat...which is obviously for her as well. She didn't mention things like going to the park/playground, or a movie, or even to the mall.

    Count me as someone who hated the green paper thing. Given the enormity of that pallet, and the large number of reams on it, and the relatively small amount of paper he was handing to each person, and the fact that a doctor was taking time to distribute it, he likely was very visible during the very long amount of time it would take to distribute it all. More than likely, word would have gotten back to that chick's boss, and she'd be in far more trouble than she would have been originally!

    Exactly. I keep wondering what the end game is for the storyline. If it isn't Ziva coming back, then will the place just become a place for Ellie, or will it figure into a future plot somehow, like they already did with Ziva's diaries?

    I was trying to decide if he was serious or not. I think he was, about his parents. But if he was also serious about him and his sibs, then what it actually did was just show how unsophisticated and clueless he is, in spite of his valiant efforts to paint his parents as the only ones like that. He's a kid -- albeit smarter than his parents, but still a kid -- who seems a bit full of himself.

    S08.E15: Finale Reunion

    For some reason I hadn't realized until now, that she went to bed at his house because of being too drunk to drive. Soooo much about that doesn't make sense. She probably drove there herself, since we know that her car was there late in the evening. (I think it is highly unlikely that anyone she knows would have been willing to drive her car to Luke's house for her.) So either, she was sober when she got there, and drank so much at his house that she was then unable to drive. Or, she was not sober when she got there, and drove there drunk, either drinking more or not once she was there, and was then too drunk to drive home. Usually, if one is too drunk to drive, they Uber home, especially if they are at the home of someone heinous. To make the decision to spend the night at the home of someone heinous because you are too drunk to drive, is very sketchy.

    IIRC, she did some pretty intense partying at her bach'ette party. I think that it also was because of all the things Keith didn't do for himself, and let his grandma do.

    S08.E15: Finale Reunion

    I had hoped that having her new beau would help Kate up her sartorial game, but boy oh boy was she wearing a terrible dress. It's not as god-awful in the group photo posted above, because it actually forced the dress to be closer to her body. But when she first walked out, I wondered why she was wearing her grandmother's housecoat (no insult meant to grandmothers!). It is frumpy, shapeless, ill-fitting, and a horrible color that makes her look washed out. Considering how top-of-their-game the other gals looked, I'm surprised she went with that, out of all the other clothes that she owns.

    S08.E15: Finale Reunion

    That's why I used to think. I still think he wasn't into her. But once the show was entirely over, no cameras, nothing, then there would have been no reason to make a suggestion about dating in the future, even going so far as to specify two years. And it didn't look like either he or Jas said this future dating thing was her idea...they both agreed that it was his idea. If it was really as simple as him not being into her, then he would have been done with it when they were done...but he didn't. Which is why there has to be something else.

    He was a-maz-ing! They need him to host My Big Fat Fabulous Life and Sister Wives 'reunion' shows, because all we get on those is softball questions delivered in a way to trick us into thinking they were hard-hitting, and there's no push-back whatsoever. Kevin kept on pushing, but in a polite way somehow. I'm def feeling some kind of way about Will. I don't at all think he was being mean, but I think he is sorta f*cked up and maybe had an upbringing where being seen as a non-wavemaker trumps all, and that would be why he insanely/idiotically made that dating in two years comment. I don't think he owned his feels, because I'm not sure he goes much deeper than the surface of what he experiences and thinks.

    S10:11 Leaving Las Vegas

    I'm fresh with repugnance because for whatever idiotic reason, these lunatics invaded my head when I was in the locker room at the pool today! I was getting very angry about the entire family being uprooted to Flagstaff just so Robyn can be with Dayton for four years of college (if he even makes it through all four years there). My stepson has special needs that will require some form of intervention in college, so I've started researching that...which made me really think about the situation with Dayton, so I might as well purge my brain here: NAU does not appear to have any kind of a particular special program for people with disabilities. So first question is why is he even going there in the first place, rather than one of the schools in Las Vegas, which would require no uprooting whatsoever? But let's say there's a good reason for him to go to NAU. Does Dayton require living with a full-time helper? If yes, then it likely doesn't have to be Robyn. For one-quintillionth the cost of this insane move/purchase fiasco, they could pay a trained professional to live with him in Flagstaff, and also pay for an apartment nearby so Robyn has somewhere specific to stay when she visits, and maybe Dayton can stay there with her on some of those weekends. She could even stay there full-time for the first month or so, since Mindy already does all the parenting for Robyn and Kodoofus, and maybe Kodoofus could actually help Mindy (I crack myself up sometimes!). If Dayton does not require living with a full-time helper, then he could live in a dorm on campus (with or without special accommodations regarding roommate or absence of one) , and they could hire a trained professional to have daily in-person or on-the-phone check-ins with Dayton, and basically be on-call for Dayton for whatever needs arise. And they could still pay for an apartment for Robyn. You're welcome, Brown clowns. Oh, what's that? You say you'd rather just move and increase your expenses three-fold, when you're barely getting by now, and have boatloads more children that will need to be put through college, and also more marriages to pay for? You better order up an express conversion to Catholicism lickety-split and start praying to St. Gildas, the guardian angel of idiots!

    Cold Justice

    I watched that episode (Horror in the Home) on the same day that I watched the one before that (Family Betrayal). Horror sounded like they had a good case, but I so surprised that the case on Betrayal is going forward. It didn't sound anything like a strong enough case to move forward, just lots of very weak circumstantial evidence. It makes me wonder if there was more evidence that for some reason they weren't able to show us.

    General True Crime Shows

    Just watched the new show on Oxygen "Accident, Suicide or Murder", and the first episode was the murderous preacher AJ Schirmer -- staged second wife's death as occurring when their car hit a guard rail (soooo fakety fake fake) and staged first wife's death as falling down the stairs; had an affair with his church's admin asst and got engaged to her. At any rate, I've seen his case on several other shows, but at the very end of this one, they added that his fiancee is sticking by him as are his kids. Open your eyes, people! I just don't get it. The second episode had something I have never seen before, which was a private attorney bringing a murder case before the grand jury, and the DA's office being the ones who were defending the accused (a former cop).
