    I'm like a page or two in and it still hasn't said what "it" is. Is this going to be a big waste of time?

    no, it is on page 6 if you want to jump ahead.

    ahhh, I see, I am not sure that they ever tell what his next big idea is, but overall, the life this guy has led, is leading, is pretty cool.

    I knew that you would be the first to read/comment on this one KT!

    Some people amaze me. Its a nice change reading a story about someone to look up to, rather than someone to snicker at.

    +1 exactly, esp. in Dallas, Texas! This guy is worth millions and lives in a one room apartment with the light bulbs unscrewed and drives a $300 mini van, but gives untold amounts to charity and has over a million in a trust fund for his son.

    His life is pretty amazing......it finally mentioned something called "TOMI-VAC" which is what I think the big new idea is, but its going in to his life. Damn it, I want details on TOMI-VAC.

    no

    No he cannot be your daddy . I think its cool how much attention he is all the sudden getting. The stuff about me or my mom isnt entirely true but all the stuff about my dad is. He is a little.... off... but he is definately an amazing person.
