If that guy would give toad money, no way I would give him my money to invest. Gold Rush really doesn't paint him in a very positive light, It could really hurt his business.

He clearly didn't think this thru well.

I gave Bamazon a shot on the History Channel. From what I can tell it is about a bunch of unprepared Alabama boys destroying the rainforest, their equipment, and their health. The fat old guy running the crew seems to have zero idea how to run a construction operation and the crew's "mining equipment" consists of a large pump and a beat to #!$% excavator. I'm secretly rooting for the jaguars and snakes to take them out.

I just checked out their site. I think it's weird that they're named, James, Jason Jonathan and Joseph.

If that isn't Toad running that page, he certainly captures his mentality perfectly.

He would probably defriend all of us for the way we talk about him

What, do you think he'd be offended that I call him Toad?

Ah yes, watched last Friday's episode and thoroughly irritated my wife by yelling expletives at Toad...

The episode started with the narrator talking about how the combined Quartz Creek / Indian River crews have stockpiled large amounts of gold rich bedrock. Apparently the bedrock is extremely difficult to work with and process at the plant, but contains the most gold. The crews have to carefully monitor their equipment to make sure that they don't overload it with the heavy bedrock material.

The narrator then goes on to state that Dave Turin is going to be leaving for several days to take care of family business back home. At this point, I face palmed. I knew exactly what was going to happen. The Toad was going to be in charge without anyone to challenge his idiotic decisions. Seriously, Turin you're leaving now?

My favorite part was where Toad and Turin discuss the plans for the next few days while Turn is out of town.

Toad: "I want to start that next cut."
Turin: "What are you stupid? We have a gold rich material stockpiled here. Run it."
Toad: "Okay, we'll talk about the cut when you get back."

Turn hasn't even loaded his duffel bags into his truck when the cameras go back to Toad.

Toad: "Oh yeah we're going to start that cut tonight. I don't care what Turin thinks. We need to make a thousand ounces, and I feel that this is the only way."

Episode continues to the point where Toad's crew begins the new cut and accomplishes nothing. Toad also manages to severely damage Big Red, and during the washout a large amount of gold is found in the final few feet of the sluice box. Somehow, they manage to turn a record clean out and Toad manages to put a rosy outlook on their week. However, I'm sitting on the couch thinking to myself, "How much freaking gold did Toad let go through the box?" It must have been a huge amount judging on what was in the last few feet of the box.
