    The Great Food Truck Race

    and I too was puzzled by the "Food Truck math" when I first heard it. I came here to see if others had heard the same thing I did. The only thing that made sense to me was Tyler misspoke. For a large TV production to only have 25 or so people to participate is kind of unbelievable. And the trucks seemed to be pushing out the food. So for 1 food truck to have only 7 customers is hard to believe. What I think Tyler meant to say was (paraphrasing): "You can take $200 or take $25 dollars for every vote you scored over your next closest competitor." And even at that, it's a mouthful.

    S37:E11 So Smart They're Dumb

    Good thing Production gave that idol to Christian. He would have been toast without it. Of course he would play it. Now that he did, this is the time to vote him out. But noooooooo, he will win the whole thing, due to the stupid play of others.

    S37:E09 Breadth-First Search

    That's why I only cursory watch this show and don't invest much into it. Christian got nearly all the votes last week (but production likes him--he does a lot of the talking heads) so we'll make sure he gets an idol. Next week someone will find the Double-Nullifier, play it, only to be countered by the Triple Sun Idol. If the sun is shining, the idol has triple the power and you can save three castaways. But play that carefully, because the Steal-An-Idol Idol is not far away. You can steal someone's idol by asking them if they have one, and if they do, it's yours. This is not to be confused with the Steal-A-Vote Thrice advantage, where you can steal someone's vote and vote three times yourself. But if you're stealing someone's vote, make sure they don't have the Advantage Double Back, which will mean two votes for you at Tribal Council. If you don't believe me, ask Jeff.
  4. Can someone explain to me what is going on in the Grammerly commercial called "The Sell"? It seems they have a beaten up old desk and decide to name it "Hugo". Why (the name), and for what purpose? The desk is sold and................ What just happened? (I know the small spelling mistakes and incorrect grammar were corrected in the commercial.) Should there be "cute" names for everything on sale?

    S09.E22: Episode 22

    I'm surprised no one addressed the elephant in the room re: the Gunnar glasses: What if you already wear glasses? Also, this was the first product I've seen on Shark Tank that I was familiar with. Someone I know has them and wears them just for gaming. I'm not in that demographic. Something must have be edited in the Solar pitch for Mark to jump on it so quickly.

    I'm surprised no one noticed that this paid homage to the great Twilight Zone episode, " The Invaders". One alone woman against a smaller threat, robots (i.e. spacemen). Even the B&W was a great callback.

    About the Christmas tree: Barbara said, "One of the things I don't like about this is you have to display it" Huh? I thought Christmas trees were for display. I had to rewind to be sure. Roc Box must have some type of wheels to move it around the record. So instead of a stylus being the only thing in contact with the record (on a traditional player), you have the stylus plus some wheels scuffing up the vinyl.

    S01.E07: The Final Escape

    "May we stay in your house tonight?" "Okay, but does the cameraman have to stay too?"

    Favorite Commercials

    I'm sorry but the new GE commercial "Imagination" just blew my mind.
  12. I think the other Sharks are familiar with Barbara's "equity stake" seeing she has told the story (on Shark Tank) of working as waitress and wearing no underwear to get better tips. Ugg.
  13. I hate that Barbara is now using Mark Cuban's "shot clock". When heating soup in the microwave, I just put a plate underneath it. For splatter, a paper plate on top. I don't need to spend 20 dollars for a silicon bib that I have to wash it after use. If your dog's tags keep you awake from scratching, take them to the vet. It's probably another problem (maybe fleas?).

    I hope Barry goes back and changes the timeline, because this timeline is stupid. All in all, I prefer Wells as a villain.

    Documentary Now!

    I think that the one thing that is understated on this show is: The closer you know the source material, the more you appreciate this show.
