    He didn't invent being an ****** either, but that hasn't stopped him so far.

    I really enjoyed the new "Beyond the tank" show they aired.

    So did I. Should we start a new thread for it?

    I think most people are just way more brand conscious about food than you or I are.

    Sure, I eat a lot (too much), but soda is about one of the only things where I consistently get the name brand.. If the generic/store brand tasted the same, I'd get it.. (and in some cases I do, e.g. diet orange or diet cola to mix with one of the flavored varieties of the name brands that don't have generic equivalents, e.g. Vanilla Coke Zero).

    Does anybody remember what the thing is called that you put your cell phone in and it uses UV light to dissinfect (and also charges)?

    Huh. My wife and I love ST, but the Beyond the Tank fell flat. Too scripted and cheesy. Not enough real behind-the-scenes of what is happening.

    I succumbed to the UMF a bit. :eek:

    I ordered 2 Mission belts - Black & Brown. I was overdue due by a bit on the belt I wear daily, so it was a pretty easy decision to purchase.

    Exactly. Beyond The Tank is about as organic as Styrofoam. Unlike Shark Tank which has a more natural feel.

    I thought of it more as an extension to the short updates they do during the shows anyway and in that context liked it. I wasn't expecting too much depth Beyond the Tank.

    We've gotten a few Scrub Daddy's at the store. Linen and Things maybe. Less harsh than the 3M green pads. They work great and I don't expect them to last.

    We go Bottle Breacher's as gifts for the sons-in-law. Current and former military. They liked them enough we also got them for the daughters. Both former military.

    We have probably gotten other items as we look at the retail racks when we shop.

    Uhh, the walk down the "hallway" is all faked (I mean that's just an open set) and the person entering the tank has to stand there quiet for quite a while (I seem to remember 10 or more minutes).

    While it's nowhere near as good as Shark Tank, I do think Beyond the Tank is interesting, and am glad it was renewed..

    Though I honestly didn't realize that all of them had a big company they worked with that did the day to day work on their investments. I'm not saying I thought they were doing it all themselves, *just* the Shark Tank stuff.. (I'm still not explaining what I misunderstood well..)

    I liked the 2nd episode of beyond the tank much better than the first. Much more going on.

    Agreed. Much more relaxed and realistic feeling. I also disagree with Cuban...their website needs to be replaced if its crashing that much and that's what they feel like they need to do. Good to see people actually going against the Sharks strong advice.

    Definitely a better episode even though I was OK with the 1st. I think there are only going to be 4-6 eps total. The plated story was probably most interesting with the deal falling through and Kevin picking them up later. You would think (if Mark's story is true) that nobody would want to touch them after that.
