Love the car seat guy and the germ filter built into the toilet

Of all the inventions the two inventions that will add something to this painful world is a better car seat for babies and for us older babies the germ filtering toilet seat. I hear bits of info about the harmful spray of bacteria that comes out of toilets. As for the other inventions; clever but no cigar.

I think the last show

I think the last show sucked.

The very imbodiment of a good inventor is someone who is ingenious and creative. Someone who can take very little and make it into something special. A good inventor is not someone who end up damaging his life, his job, his family, and losing his house to waste money for an invetion. I am appalled at the way they require inventors to cry and demean themselves. The ones smart enough not to suffer (other than the car seat guy) did not get through.

It's transparantly maudlin and manipulative and that's why people are not watching the show.

It pisses me off that the criteria for going to the final 12 seemed to be whether Mary Lou Boo Hoo cried. What does tears have to do with having a good idea for a new invention?

Not all the inventors that

Not all the inventors that made it into the top 12 had a sob story or made Mary Lou cry.
