    Pawn Stars

    Anyone here ever watched "Pawn Stars" on The History channel? It's a really good show and historical stuff is sold and pawned all the time. One episode I watched today featured a guy who sold the battle plans for The Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II and then another episode featured a guy who sold some type of Cobra car.

    Yeah, American Pickers is great too! It makes you think YOU might have something valuable in your possession.

    Storage Wars and Parking Wars are both awesome!

    But yes, Pawn Stars is awesome too.

    I actually watch pawn stars and American restoration whenever its on, cant wait till pawn stars is "new again". Pretty interesting what kind of items they get.

    Hardcore Pawn is, IMO, horrible. So much about that place just annoys me.

    i enjoy Pawn stars, yet i don't like any of the people who work there lol. and some people you just want to shank because they go to pawn their grandfather's heirlooms. i really dig american Pickers


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    Pawn Stars is actually the most viewed show on cable.

    And Hardcore Pawn is horrible, I agree. It's so fake. It's more about staged drama instead of the items being pawned.

    I watched a couple the other week myself actually.

    It shocked me when one guy had the head of a Stretch Serpent toy - just the head. They gave him $500 (I think for it), and in the end the actual value of it was about $4000, because the toy itself is so rare today because hardly any were sold. I felt sorry for the guy who originally sold it to them, as he must not have done his research and he'd basically lost out on so much money.

    It's an interesting show though, I must admit.

    They have to make a profit or else they wouldn't stay in business long. Then there's the restoration factor. If they have to pay money to have it properly restored, that's less money in your pocket.

    Its more about customer service and running staff than anything.

    I occasionally watch pawn stars and storage wars, and apart from being scripted to hell and back, they are ok.

    pawn stars: you have the arc of the covenant? in mint condition, I could probably do $134297bn, but in it's current state, best I can do is 50 bucks.

    storage wars: hmm, $#@! on a stick, looks like early 50's, there's 500 bucks right there.

    I know that. But if you were the poor sod who gave up the head for $500, when you could have gotten $4000, you'd feel sick about it. I know I would!
    Research.
