    I did find it interesting that the shipper didn't pick Roy even though he had shipped stuff for him before.

    Yes, total burn. Roy was surprised too.

    Anybody else thinking that it must be just Robbie's kid and not Chris's? She said "my son" quite a few times. That kind of surprised me.

    The term they use is "select top level transporters". Probably code for "the fools on this stupid TV show".

    I assumed it wasn't his son, since she never said their son or anything like that.

    yes, tires come off vehicles and into oncoming traffic regularly. The wheel is spinning very fast, faster than the truck is moving.

    That's not possible, it would be spinning exactly the speed the truck is moving.

    What happens is that as soon as the wheel comes off, obviously the truck would slow down at a fast rate (it can't move very fast with only 3 wheels!). Then the wheel that came off slows down much slower.

    Anyone ever look at the uShip website? They have a flash slideshow highlighting 10 transport companies. 5 of them are the stars of Shipping Wars and all of them have 5 star ratings.

    You have to think Jarrett's portrayal in the show has hurt his business. Wonder if he gets paid more to compensate. :)

    I'd definitely hire Roy or one of his crew. He knows how to ship.

    I admit he does seem to know what he is doing.

    I think Roy's the only one of them I'd hire as well. Jarrett and Jen are self-explanatory, and Marc has picked up the incredibly stupid habit of taking jobs clearly meant for closed trailers, then putting on the Mr. Ignorant face whenever things rust or get scratched from brushing against tree branches.

    I might ship my dog if I could get Jen to show up at my house ;)

    So you're going Jen over Robbie?

    ahh man....do I have to chose? ;)

    That would be a close call but I'd say Jen would win.

    Well, obviously I would hire 1 and have them sub-hire the other, as Jen did with hiring Roy... Myself though, I'd have to go with Robbie.

    Oops, you're right. It was Marc.

    Roy would've been like "Screw him. I didn't want to ship his piece of %^$^$***## anyway."

    :)
