Best getting started story: They thought they could sell plumbing supplies online, so they built a website and launched it. By lunch they had to shut the website off because they had to figure out how to ship a toilet (evidently porcelain is tough to ship without breaking and toilets are awkward sizes). Safe to say they have figured it out now.
