    The sun tan guy was my favourite person ever on the den. Amazing.

    Thought they were a bit harsh on the parking fine lady. What's the difference between using that service and hiring a top class lawyer to do the dirty work? Or is dodging the law only available to rich bastards?

    There are already loads of sites out there that give you all the info you need to fight a fine, for free. AFAIK anyway. You'd be mad to hire a lawyer to fight an 80 quid fine

    I thought nobody put on a good show last night. Those popcorn selling trio were just terrible; they were just trying to use kitsch advertising techniques to try and lure people into buying a badly made product.

    And Hilary should have asked for way more equity for those Caravan duo because having two incompetents running a business like that will be very painful in the long run.

    Looks like they're all contemplating suicide in the new opening titles.

    LOL - I was thinking exactly the same thing last night. That or scanning the city for crime, ready to swoop down and dispense justice.

    I was surprised no one tried to just buy the patents from the sunbed guy. He seemed rely interested in doing absolutely nothing. Just offer him the whole amount for 99% and tell him he'l just have yearly cheque from it but no say in the business. I the right hands I think they idea could make a fortune.

    I loved how he just came in. "I have no figures or sales predictions whatsoever".

    Is it me or is 50 k for any business ridiculously low nowadays?

    No. The value is based on the amount of profit to date and future profit. Most of the businesses on there are small upstarts where 50K will have a massive impact for them as they're making around 20k profit a year at the moment (or less usually).

    In short, it's you.

    Fair enough, I agree you sound right.

    It's just I'd imagine the money going nowhere in no time at all....but I suppose it's a one time, roll of the dice almost, thing. If the business doesn't work, it just doesn't and then they don't get any more investment.

    Most of the evaluations, and projected turnovers are utter nonsense. Banks won't even speak to you unless you have a comprehensive business plan, with detail projections, and they can't be any more than pure guesswork.

    So glad I have nothing to do with bank loans!

    Arse, I can't stand her. She's obsessed with herself, and is a complete nutter. I hear lots of stories from her staff - rules like you can't go to the toilet for 30 minutes before you knock off, just wait and go in your own time. She passes off her staffs' work as her own.

    She must live near me, I saw her driving round a busy roundabout near me, one handed, talking on her phone.

    Still, more exposure will lead to her downfall, I'm sure she has lots of skeletons. I think her level of business expertise will soon become apparent - self-publicity is more her strong point.

    No joke.

    I have seen Michelle Mone in person and she just irritated me purely by her presence.

    Little Miss Self-centred me thinks.

    Who's that Scottish bird who sells the sexy underwear? She's super-hot, and super-sleuthy.

    She's really not....

    Super-sleuthy? Is that like Nancy Drew? Or Velma?

    Just finished watching it, that last guy was an emotional watch and overall like the new style, I like the new tech guy but Mrs Orange Bignose was a bit off putting, I won't miss judge her though over one show.

    I like that there's 5 dragons now.

    You better watch out.
    You better beware.

    I had an idea that I reckon is Den-worthy.

    Do you know the sound of your car alarm? I don't know the sound of mine. The idea is for a programmable car alarm, so rather than it making an anonymous "woot, woot, woot" noise you can upload a custom mp3 to it. That way if your car alarm goes off you could make it play, really loud, say, Karma Chameleon or Gary Glitter or a recording of you saying "Warning, this car will explode in 10 seconds", or something.

    I reckon that idea is worth at least a million quid.

    Also it's pretty useless if you're anyone other than a pikey, chav or homosexual in Brighton.
