I had one back in the 70's. If you're using a hook, worm and bobber, they work fine. I'd just like to break one out when I go to Canada sometime. My fishing buddies would fall out of the boat laughing.

It is... Wal-Mart carries it though.

I haven't been tempted, but I do try to guess the price before they announce it - just a little game I like to play.

So far, I'm 84 for 84.

Turns out $19.95 + S&H is always right.

I bought a food dehyradtor once from an infomercial. Now I sell beef jerky at the gun shows. Who's laughing now?

The vacuum sealer informercials have tempted me. Combined with the food dehydrator you could make your own MREs for your SHTF supply.


Dad actually had a Pocket Fisherman back in the '70s. Worked OK for what it is.

After coming back from the bar, I've been tempted by the magic bullet. I'm glad I don't have a credit card. I'd have too much stupid shit.

YES, bought a MET-WRENCH tool set.

I have used for over a decade now, (and still have all the wrenches and sockets), works great on metric or SAE nuts and bolts.

Good purchase IMO.

That dehydrator commercial, Ronco I believe, prompted me to buy a dehydrator, but not the Ronco. Ended up buying an American Harvest brand, makes great jerky too!

It's the Anthony Robin's Personal Power series...

It's a get get rich quick scheme with motivational tapes...

Similar to the same crap that Don Laprie or Carlton Sheets pitch...

Ever see the E-bay marketing course? What moron cannot figure out how to use E-bay in an hour or two

Their must be a lot of gullible morons that watch late night TV

I love the excercise machine infomercials...

"Hey their fatso....

Want to look like me.... Wanna be built like a brick shit house....pick up skinny little chicks...

With the Assmaster 5000, you can lose 300 pounds of lard in the first 30 days... "


This is what happens 95% of the time...


Cut to a scene of an average living room, with a 400lb lardass sitting in a barcalounger shoving Cheetos down his throat...


It's 3 AM in anytown USA and fatso picks up the phone and charges the 3 easy payments of 19.95 to his credit card.

The miracle device ( a few cheap pieces of steal tubing made in China) arrives two weeks later and sits around the house forever, and is rarely, if ever used.

Two years later the thing is in a pile at a yardsale or in the trash.

American consumerism at it's finest...

Buying shit to make yourself feel like your problems have a possibility of going away...

The little giant ladder system looked like something I would be interested in. I install shutters and drapes for a living(independant contractor) and carry 5 sizes of ladders from 6' to 24' in my job trailer. Home Depot carries the same ladder under the Gorilla Ladder name, but at a lot lower cost. It is a good ladder...stable, strong, versitle, up to 20'. Now if I could find one of those BASSO"MATICS.

Until 1. they sell either guns or guitars on infomercials and 2. I get tv again I think I'm safe.

Never. They are no different than the hucksters you see pitching their wares at the state fair every summer. All out to make a buck, generally selling very shoddy merchandise at a substantial markup.

I've got a relative who's a buyer for a large hardware store chain. He tells me the cold solder thing is a major POS.

The only "buy it from TV for 19.95" type thing that has tempted me is that thing for popping hard boiled eggs out of their shells. I make deviled eggs a couple of times a year and that looks like it would speed things up quite a bit.

Link Posted: 1/17/2006 4:24:51 PM EDT
The only one that ever really tempted me was the current Popeil knife set. I see the commercial, and 3 minutes into it I'm thinking "Wow. How in the hell have I been living without that?" It looks like the absolute be-all and end-all for anybody who cooks. Never took the plunge yet, though.
Link Posted: 1/17/2006 4:25:34 PM EDT
Tempted ? Hell yeah. Those hot women in the Velform Sauna Belt informercial make me want to touch myself. Then my girlfriend makes me turn the channel because she doesn't want to finish what the TV started. Ain't love grand?

About 8 years ago I bought the Autobike. This was the 10 speed that automatically changed gears.

I received the bike, put it together, went for a ride, came home, took the bike apart and returned it the next day. I received all my money back and they sent UPS to pick it up.

What a pile of crap. The thing was always on the verge of shifting to the next gear, so the chain was rattling.

Live and learn.

You have no idea what your talking about . It has nothing to do with getting rich ,it has to do with finding satisfaction out of life. He is a wise man who knows how to get results through action, and his methods work

I think Robbins is selling Pentecostal ecstasy with a beefed-up offering and no worship. He also seems to be a fame whore. I figure if you put photos of yourself with Bill Clinton in your commercials, you regard association with fame as a good thing in an of itself. That said, I have often encouraged my wife to Awaken the Giant Within. . . My Pants.

he was establishing crediblity by placing the photos up. Otherwise, he is just a tall guy with big teeth telling you what to do. Establish crediblity, and people will feel the weight of your words.

I laugh everytime I see Ron Popiels knife set I see him advertising nowadays, and how he says they will beat any knife set out there.

My mom bought a set of them, and while they will cut, they are nowhere near the quality of my Boker ceramic knives, even though Ron says his are better.
