Anyway, I'm happy to help this company out in thinking in new ways. Let me know what you think.
There is a video of it here on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsV50T5uEyw&feature=player_embedded
You can buy it online for $39.95 with free shipping and handling in case you are interested: http://www.home-backup-protection.com/buy/shopping_cart.php
I have placed a description of the product below. If you have any ideas on how to market it uniquely (dare I say virally) then please comment back or email me.
The Back-Up is a rack that allows you to keep your shotgun within easy reach. Many people keep their guns on a bed stand, under a bed, in a closet or standing in a corner. However, none of these locations are safe because they do not give you easy access to your defensive tool when you really need it. Protection is effective only when it is readily available and easily used. Our unique patented design gives you quick and easy access to your protective device, while conveniently staying out of the way.

Subject: [The Gates of Memphis] New comment on SK8Mud.
sherman has left a new comment on the post "SK8Mud":
When we were working on raising money for the Stax Museum, I met with a suburban banker--much like Skatelife meets with people behind the scenes all the time. He insisted we should build the Stax Museum not on its original site, but on Beale St. where "the people were." This was inconsistent with our vision for building a monument to the greatest soul record label on its original site.
The reason why you would build a skatepark on the 100 year empty spot at the end of mud island is it would be a major worldwide attraction for skaters from all over the world to "skate on the Mississippi." This would be the only spot on the largest river in the U.S. to skate. It would be a major visitor draw to Memphis & Mud Island, unlike the current situation. Memphis & regional skaters would also be able to enjoy this amenity in droves.
There is no reason why a cafe or snack bar cannot work there. In fact, I would love to be able to grab a bite to eat, a coffee or beer, and watch the skaters there. It will be an awesome experience for those who want to sit on the floating dock & watch from Beale St. too.
Joggers can currently use that space. So can walkers. Very few do.
