1. Yes, but there's an interesting back story to Mike Lindell

https://www.cnbc.com/2017/09/20/how-mypillow-founder-went-from-crack-addict-to-self-made-millionaire.html

Mike Lindell says there aren't many crack addicts who've become successful, but he's one of them.

"It can be done, people," he laughed.

The self-made multimillionaire and infomercial superstar created the MyPillow empire from scratch in 2004. He did it while addicted to drugs. "People say all the time that's one of the biggest miracles ever."

He's been clean and sober for over eight years, but his path from rags to riches ó and almost back to rags ó is an amazing American success story.

It is also one long, strange trip.

7. He's also a Trumpanzee who made false claims about the benefits of his pillows.

https://www.buzzfeed.com/leticiamiranda/pro-trump-my-pillow-accused-of-false-advertising?utm_term=.je1vjMXjn#.wxWpPbAPe

The TV informercial star and newly declared Donald Trump supporter settled a lawsuit brought by the District Attorney of Alameda County accusing the company of making false claims that the pillow could treat insomnia, sleep apnea, and fibromyalgia.

For roughly $1 million in civil penalties, the Minnesota-based company settled accusations that it lacked "competent and reliable scientific evidence" to support claims that the pillow could treat serious health conditions, including temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. The state also claimed that while My Pillow said it was selected as "the official pillow of the National Sleep Foundation," it failed to disclose its financial ties with the sleep advocacy organization.

3. Also, the product is just foam pebbles.

You can scrunch it up because itís a bunch of bee bees in a pillow case.

Also, he is a trump supporter. Thatís what I heard and that makes him dead to me.

10. Consumer Reports didn't like his pillows but I think it was more of an informal

survey of staff. The staff that bought those were not impressed. I and my girlfriend have another companies memory foam pillows and they are really nice.

30. Did you ever see Norm Abram's "The New Yankee Workshop"?

He loves to wear plaid shirts, and the Internet joke was he only has one shirt...so one day he showed his "closet" off...he opened the door and the closet was full of nothing but plaid shirts.

34. I remember Norm from the days when Bob Vila hosted "This Old House".

I was disappointed when they cancelled NYW.

they don't seem such a big deal. I have a down pillow, which I love & I do have to fluff it up, seems to be very little trouble
