1 Never knew about the inventor's deal. Just never saw the appeal of buying dried mini shrimp that would just float around then die after a short time. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 16, 2015, 3:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Robert and others on the white supremacist accusations: With all due respect, the inventor was a guy of a (sorry to say this) a different era and you have to understand the time such a guy grew up (I read the article that Travoltron linked to). -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on March 10, 2015, 10:26 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Even as a kid I thought this was ridiculous (and in fact kind of creepy). However, I really wanted a pair of those X-Ray Specs that were marketed by the same dude. Mainly, though, I dreamed about my parents buying me one of those cool miniature submarines advertised in comic books. ("Over 7 Feet Long!" "Fires Rockets and Torpedoes!") But noooooo - they couldn't spring for the measly $6.98, the dirty cheapskates, so I had to find other ways to one-up the other kids in the neighborhood. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 30, 2011, 3:37 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The inventor was a white supremacist. Alas, it seems everything we loved as kids have deep dark secrets to them. I only had sea monkeys once when I was little, so looking back, I'm glad I didn't really contribute to him or his causes. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 7, 2011, 8:54 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Everybody needs to read this article about the Sea Monkeys "inventor". http://articles.latimes.com/2000/oct/01/magazine/tm-29473 He's dead now so you don't have to worry about Sea Monkey money money going to such a horrible person, but still, something to think about. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 7, 2011, 1:43 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
