Haha, yeah there are.. Tony Shahloub's older brother was on with a doggy potty (can't think what he called it). when you're walking your dog you hold the little doggy potty under his butt when he starts to go. They didn't except it. :tape:

:o I watched last week's episode, and some of the people are just :cuckoo: One of them was some stupid ball game where you put a ball on the table and you just push the ball to the other side :tape: And the guy spent like his whole life and savings and he lives in his car just for this game :o

But the lingerie one was :drool:

I like the lady who invented the big box thing for when little kids throw tantrums to turn it into a "positive thing"

The judges completely missed the point, thinking it was inhumane...but what I was thinking was "do you really want to create a generation of spoiled brats who think tantrums are fun and positive?"

Good thing it got rejected.

I've only seen one show but i was mad when they were about to reject the educational game because educational games don't sell...If they didn't sell why are there so many on the market? :confused:

It can be really sad when people say they put all this money into stuff and their idea is stupid. :sad:

Some of the people they booted off just shocked me with they came up with. Like the little boy with his invisibile tear gas to the gal with the bras for women with breast implants (although she was close to actually going to the next round)

Still, the show is a total breath of fresh air:lol:

I can understand the girl with the bras for the breast implants because there's very little 34 DD bras.....might be because that's unnatural..:o

So did anybody watch the finale? The series turned out a lot better than I ever thought. If that car seat gets made because of this show it will be the most sucessful show ever...:clap2:

That guy made the Polish community in the US proud haha. Can someone explain what the car-seat was about and what made it so special?

instead of a seat belt restraint holding a baby back, ie placing force on a baby's chest, the car seat spins which absorbs the force therefore saving babies lives. That's an uneducated guess. :lol:

Thank you! I only saw the finale---which did not provide a good overview of each invention.
