i just got back from watching another ridiculous tv commercial (about a product that helps you scrape shedding fur off your pet) and am now to the point where i am wondering.......does anyone actually buy this stuff?




Anyone ever bought anything off of the television? i did once and only once, it was a toy for my son when he was five (8 years ago).

I've bought a couple of things from QVC. The presenters are pretty funny sometimes. I bought some cleaning stuff once that wasn't very good.

We did book a really good holiday once though to Greece that was a bargain.

I've never understood this channel. These southern boys sell knives for hours at a time. Who the hell is that obsessed with knives? And who the hell needs a people-killing sword?

I used to work with a guy who when ever he got drunk he used to order all kinds of shit from the TV. Sometimes he even ordererd multiple copies of the same thing on different binges.

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

Staying up late at night, things like this would fascinate you.

Is that why those infoshitthings are on are night? I thought it was because that's the only TV time slots they could afford.

They used to primarily sell coins.. I used to watch, but never bought anything because I was smart enough to know the things they sold were a rip-off, and not the major deal they made it out to be.



I have bought Holiday things from QVC.. Mainly during their Christmas in July specials, because I have Christmas withdrawals about that time..

The bastards still sell coins. I'm a coin collector and I know what they're worth. Those greedy hillbillies overprice them by at least 400%.

All those gold and platinum plated state quarters are worth only 25 cents each. Those yeehaw dirtbags are ripping people off by selling them for as much as $15 each.

400% = 1
800% = 2
1200% = 3
1600% = 4
2000% = 5
2400% = 6
2800% = 7
3200% = 8
3600% = 9
4000% = 10
4400% = 11
4800% = 12
5200% = 13
5800% = 14
6200% = 15

Hah.. Back when I was a big coin collector, for my Birthday, my dad bought me all the Proof Sets back to somewhere around 1940, and a set of the state quarters all gold and platinum plated.. He swore up and down they'd be worth alot of money someday, because thats what the guy on TV said.. Too bad I knew better..

Steve Goodman wrote a song about that.

Quote:
Fell asleep last night with the T-V on. Oh, what a dream I had.
I dreamed I answered every single one of those late night mail order
ads.
And four to six weeks later, much to my surprise,
The mailman came to my front door, and I couldn't believe my eyes
When he brought the Vegematic, and the Pocket Fisherman too,
Illuminated illustrated history of life,
And Boxcar Willie with a Ginzu knife,
A bamboo steamer, and a Garden Weasel too,
And a tie-dyed, dayglow souvenir shirt from Six Flags Over Burbank.

The doorbell rang all morning and into the afternoon.
I shook with fright as it rang all night to the light of the Master
Card moon.
There was Parcel Post in the pantry, and UPS in the hall,
C O D's to the ceiling, and I just couldn't pay for it all.
I got the egg scrambler, with a Seal-a-Meal carrying case,
A set of presidential commemorative plates
So I could eat my eggs off the President's face,
A Minute Mender, and a needle that'll knit or crochet,
And an autographed photograph of Rin Tin Tin at Six Flags Over
Burbank.

(same chords as 2nd verse Smile

I remembered I was dreaming, so I gave a mighty cheer.
When I awoke, it was no joke, 'cause all that shit was here.
So if you fall asleep with the TV on, let me tell you what to do:
Tear the telephone out of the wall unless you want it to happen to
you.
You'll get the Vegematic, and the Pocket Fisherman too,
Illuminated illustrated history of life,
And Boxcar Willie with a Ginzu knife,
A bamboo steamer, and a smokeless ashtray too

And an all expenses paid weekend for three at Six Flags Over Burbank.

I ordered the Eggstractor from a commercial once. Got it, tried it, trashed it. It was total CRAP! I pushed down on that thing so many times, and nothing came out! And that part of the commercial where they compare the Eggstractor and hand-peeling it? I did the same thing-hands win; Eggstractor didn't do a thing. What a waste of money...

I didn't exactly order them from the commercial. Instead, I went to asseenontv.com and ordered them from there.

I'm assuming it just ignored you, as our cat does to me.

Nope, don't think I've ever ordered something from the TV.
