    Wife took me to Inception, then she walked out on it. I enjoyed it having read the plot ahead of time…

    I’m highly surprised (and absolutely wrong) that John Small hasn’t put his negative nancy spin on this one yet. Netflix is listed higher on the list, but its a reflection that both companies are doing well. I’ll also be expecting a thumbs down from J.S. on this post!

    Guess he can’t attack the validity of the source since it’s owned by a company that very much dislikes redbox.

    I have no argument over the article. There are plenty of companies on that list that will not be in business 5 years from now (that one was just for you Sitch).

      That’s an improvement. You said redbox was going to be gone in a year about 11 months ago. Now we’re up to 5 years. JS are you going soft?

        John Small [visitor]

        No. I just knew you would misintrepret what I said so I left it that way. I’m sure if you really read what I wrote you can figure it all out.

      The Situation [visitor]

      Ok, I won’t argue that John. Plenty of companies on that list will be out of business in 5 years according to you. Can you point of 3? I’m alright with seeing Coinstar below Chipotle on the list, their food is delicious, have you ever had it?

      • Visitor [Join Now]
        John Small [visitor]

        i haven’t done the research into all of the companies but to be a “fastest growing” company you usually need to be a youngish company in the midst of a rapid expansion. Doesn’t take a genius to understand that those conditions will result in multiple failures from that list.

        Lots of companies can grow using borrowed funds. Eventually you have to make a profit though.

          The Situation [visitor]

          Yeah, I understand what you just said John. I knew that before you said it. My question however was in regards to SPECIFIC companies, and I even asked if you have had any of Chipotle’s delicious meals. You avoided both questions, neither of which attacked any of your views, just asked for a specific answer.

          Since you haven’t done the research, I woudln’t expect you to have a credible answer, your last post was really just a waste of time since you went on your own little rant.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            John Small [visitor]

            Nope. Not a waste of time. Just a statement of fact.

            Firstlawofnature [visitor]

            It’s ironic that you use the word ‘fact’ more than anyone that posts here yet you deliver far less of them than most everyone. Sort of like the guy that says ‘honestly’ all the time. Ya just know he ain’t always telling it like it is.

            Did you ever see that old movie ‘What Ever Happened To Baby Jane’ starring Betty Davis and Joan Crawford? Basically, all their lives the 2 main characters don’t get along, argue/disagree about everything, undermine/sabatoge each other, etc.etc. At the very end of the movie, both are sitting on the beach, the old, sickly, dying Joan Crawford character about to take her last breath right after they both just had a heart-to-heart talk and realized they were more alike that different…. Then Baby Jane (Betty Davis) holds the Joan Crawford character and says something like, ..”And to think that all these years, we could have been friends…” FLON , John S……there might be a lesson to be learned here :-)

            ‘Honestly’ I like to stick to the ‘facts’ while JS thinks redbox customers are ‘cheap pathetic losers’ and that the company needs to raise prices fast. That’s more like oil and water.

            If he ain’t the heavy hitter at VBG or one of his lieutenants I’d be surprised.

            Oh FLON. Such a negative nelly.

            I know you want me to be someone I’m not but I really have to disappoint you there.

            Chin up little bunkie! I’m sure you didn’t invest more than you could lose in this sinking ship.

            justme [visitor]

            The “facts” are that you are BOTH “pathetic losers”! All you guys do all day long is troll on this site, it’s really pathetic.
            If I didn’t know better (and I don’t) I’d think you were both in love with each other. I have a suggestion for both of you…
            why don’t you both get lives!!!…. Truly pathetic!!

            If it sinks there won’t be a single store left open.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            John Small [visitor]

            Justme, I can see where you are coming from. I’m pretty sure FLON is in love with me too. He can’t have me though, I’m taken.

            FLON, dearest, indies can survive well past the Redbox sinking. Do you really not understand the Coinstar numbers at all?

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            firstlawofnature [visitor]

            Yes you are taken. With yourself.

            ‘…indies can survive well past the Redbox sinking’

            A shocker that you say this. I mean it’s not like everyone here doesn’t know where your bread is buttered.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            John Small [visitor]

            My bread is buttered on my kitchen table every morning at breakfast. Usually after toasting.

            I know you like to try and spread falsehoods about me FLON but you know full well what you are implying is untrue.

            I accept your need to be near me but seriously, you are starting to embarass yourself with the open passion. Surely you’d rather keep this private. Don’t ask, don’t tell and all that.

            And my answer to your love missive is still the same. NO.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            firstlawofnature [visitor]

            No you’re not a big fan of stores….

            – Redbox customers are ‘cheap pathetic losers’

            – Redbox needs to raise prices fast

            You can say anything you want but the two statements above are clear.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            John Small [visitor]

            Have I been denying those two statements? My apologies if I have.

            Please don’t go to bed angry.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            Firstlawofnature [visitor]

            Your ‘cheap pathetic losers’ & raising prices comments conflict with your just the facts charade.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            John Small [visitor]

            Not at all FLON.

            Both statements are factual.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            The Situation [visitor]

            On an opposite note, I see that I’m the one who started this thread. I shouldn’t fuel the fire and I’m sorry for doing so. I think J.S. and FLON should do a mma style cage match and just settle it there. I’m really still curious if you’ve had any of chipotle’s delicious meals J.S? For the record (not necessarily a fact) neither of you can claim that you state “just the facts” because you have both been wrong from time to time. Regardless of how big or small (no pun intended) you can say you have credible arguments but saying “just the facts” really makes you look like a little douche. Again I think both of you bring up great points quite often, both are intelligent and good thinkers (yes compliments!!!!!) and really keep the chat going, but neither of you are ALWAYS right.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            John Small [visitor]

            I suspect I have 20 years on FLON but with a little training I’m sure I make it interesting.

            I’m scared what he might try to do to me in the clinch though, now that his feelings have been made known.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            Firstlawofnature [visitor]

            I don’t tag my posts with crap like just the facts, the facts whether you like them or not and claim customers of Redbox are cheap, pathetic losers. I post my opinions and they stand or fall on their own. Others have noted the difference between my and JS’s posts but I don’t want to rehash that.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            The Situation [visitor]

            Well there was good and bad in all of that. To John Small, I gave you a thumbs up, because I thought it was funny. You cared to acknowledge the fight part of it, and quite frankly if FLON had you in the clutch, and you were down and out, he would probably continue after the official tried to break it up much like the conversations here. However, you again for the 3rd time avoided a simple question. Have you had chipotle? It’s a simple yes or no question, and you can’t be wrong, either way. Yet you have avoided it, so if you can’t be straight forward about something as simple as that, why should I expect you to be direct about anything you say? Perhaps it is because no one questions you more than yourself? Or perhaps thats not the case at all.

            FLON, your response was again based on your biased like of Redbox, which would be easier to understand if you were to explain your reason for having such a bias. I’m guessing you are an employee of the company. Your fault is that you refuse to really listen to anything anyone says, and you talk about stupid jokes like lotions, that really only you understand. Although generally I agree with you, and I enjoy utilizing the Redbox service very much, sometimes I question you….

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            John Small [visitor]

            Sitch, FLON has admitted (under duress) that he owns shares in Coinstar and therefore stands to benefit from Redbox success.

            NJ shore boy,

            Long time posters would understand VBG pokes – sorry if you don’t know that past. I am interested in redbox primarily from an investment point of view. No bias there. If I didn’t think redbox would prosper I’d move on. I happen to think it will prosper. JS writes with a very pro-store, VBG bias. If you can’t detect that by now you are not very perceptive. Certainly his cheap pathetic loser and raise prices comments speak loudly. You seem pretty focused on JS’s eating habits no doubt in an attempt to snare him in some logic trap. Good luck with that. Chipotle is tasty and redbox is a terrific deal. Consumers love ’em both and we have McDonalds to thank for each of them. In the end this is all healthy debate for me. Nothing else to it.

            JS,

            Only real moment of duress that I’ve witnessed is when the administrator called you out for dodging questions.

          • Visitor [Join Now]
            John Small [visitor]

            I am sorry you felt duress when Michael made his erroneous attack upon me. I don’t blame him though. He has a financial stake in the success of Redbox too.

            Cheer up little camper. BB should be declaring bankruptcy this week and you can sell at a profit. Just don’t keep holding it too long. The big guy is watching you.

    You wrote that redbox users are cheap pathetic losers and that the company needs to raise prices. From that I can figure out a lot.

    You got to look at what is happening out there presently,
    and it is about “growing FAST”
    and who can sustain the fastest growth;
    especially in the Wall Street Game….
    and so far;
    this is where it is at…
    for,
    Facebook (which,
    their present #’s have shocked the industry, so far)
    Google,
    Yahoo,
    Microsoft and
    Apple (though they have done very poorly here);
    but presently, it is still,
    WHO CAN CAPTURE THE Public’s attention
    and GAIN the fastest overall growth…
    forget the stability and long term sound, survival,
    the game has gone beyond that…
    Where will it end?
    I do not want to venture to guess.
