Did you know that if you appear on Shark Tank, the producer gets 5% of your company
Whoa, interesting!
Is that even if you turn down the offer or only if you make a deal?

I knew that. I was shocked when I found out.

Some things start to make sense, like why they would bring in the plate topper guy.

If you don't make a deal you still give up 5%. It's worth it for many companies. Being on the show can be millions of dollars worth of advertisement.

IIRC, you can choose between 5% or a 2% royalty.

It seems like even if there is no deal. My first impression was that's a crazy rip off, but it is advertising/promotion. On the update they've brought back people who didn't get a deal and their businesses were booming just from the exposure

IME, YouTube is the way to go. No ads for Shark Tank, and no buffering.

If you insist on a download per se, use torrentz.eu to find a torrent for it.

Thanks for the tip :), will try my best. Though, this may be a surprise, there was a time before the net, when information was found in books and in the head. Not all the facts that I post do I find on the net.  As of now, I haven't yet figured out how to link to my Amygdala. Feel free to use google and to post the links.

TROLL ALERT!!!

Did you know that Forum Trolls purposely post outrageous messages to bait people to answer. A Forum Troll delights in sowing discord on the forums.  A troll is someone who inspires flaming rhetoric, someone who is purposely provoking and pulling people into flaming discussion. Trolling is a form of harassment that can take over a discussion.

Why people troll?
