more than likely he just submitted the patent application through either one of those $50.00 software, or website assistants, and will just leave it at "pending" so he can put that on his signboard when he takes it to shows, and impress folks that are easily impressed.
I can't help but wonder if he ever had any liability over that accident his last Grand was in a few years back... the pictures, and the description of it made it sound pretty horrific for the folks in the other car that he ran over.
In this day and age, I would think given the number of lawsuits, and ambulance chasers that he'd be a bit less attention-whorish about the fact that he evidently has quite a bit of money to blow.
