Pawn Stars??? Don't let the title fool you!!!

As you know, Big Daddy is all about learning stuff.  Most of the "stuff" is not going to help solve world peace or anything like that, but it is cool learning along the way. 

Pawn Stars on the History channel is a home run!!!  It has been a long time since I have been so engrossed in a reality type show.  I have learned about pawn stores and how they work. I have seen things that I never thought I would see on this series.  

Pawn Stars at the end of thirty minutes leaves me wanting for more.  My surprise comes in the fact that it feeds my insatiable appetite for edification.  I actually feel like I have bettered myself and not just wasted a half hour of my time.  

The cast is great. Old Man, Big Hoss, and Rick,  are a very intelligent group of men who teach as well as they entertain.  Throw in Chumlee, and I would feel at home with these guys in the backyard grilling steaks and chewing the fat.

Do yourself a favor, drop in sometime at the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop and listen to what Rick has to say about the next treasure to walk into his store.  Tell them Big Daddy sent you. I promise you will be glad you stopped by.

Did you know?

Trench coats were worn in WWI and got their name because they were worn in the trenches that the soldiers bunkered.  The heavy wool provided warmth, but also provided protection form many of the small hand held weapons used in close combat.

Prohibition alcohol could only be sold for medicinal purposes.  A prescription was required to obtain the alcohol.

These are just a couple of the things I learned on Pawn Stars.  

Meet you at Rick's counter with my comic book collection,

Smarter for having watched Big Daddy
