    So Jason, hypothetically, could I collect royalties on "Testivus"?

    My brother is a patent lawyer too BTW.

    Small world. My grandfather was a patent attorney and his father was head of the US Patent office under 5 presidents.

    Cheers,

    It's got to be AMC! I was sitting here thinking, how could Tom have messed up his launch date info? Then it hit me, lookin' at his signature, I saw the biggest cloo! All the tibbers, grand tibbers, Tom is proud of all his children. Tom is saying All My Children!

    Come on, that's pretty good! What do I win?

    Well I've heard of patent attorneys. :D

    Your great-grandfather has a Wikipedia page but there's nothing on it. It's just place holder right now. Maybe you should update it. ;)

    Who patented HDTV? I hope thats not a hold up for getting new channels. :D :lol:

    Bryan Cranston has won the Emmy for Best Actor three years in a row for Breaking Bad. So it is AMC. Thanks for that hint Tom.
