Speaking of huge plasma TVs.....Here's a story I got and it's 100% true, not a whiff of bull$hit: a few weeks ago my girlfriend was in the hospital (for nothing serious thankfully) and one morning when I went to go visit her I saw a 55 inch samsung plasma tv on the curb outside of a house. I thought wow I should pick that up and tinker with it a little bit because obviously something is wrong with it and what have I got to lose. I decided against it because I just wanted to see how she was doing and I probably couldn't fix it anyway. Turns out she came home that day and on the way back to my house she saw the TV and urged me to go out to get it. That's all I needed for a final deciding factor so I lugged this huge thing into her tiny car and brought it home. I did about ten minutes of googling and sure enough there was a recall on this model samsung. I read into it a bit and it was because the capacitors were faulty..not high enough resistance? I don't know I'm no TV repair guy. So I call samsung to find out more and sure enough, no matter how you got the TV they would come to your house and replace the power board for free. Needless to say I lucked out big time on that one!!! I still grin whenever I hear that powerup melody
Wow that was lucky. Free Plasma TVs are always great
Cannibalism. Cause when the SHTF, I'm gonna eat somebody.
Or is that a perk? My xbox was stolen over the summer...
It' s a perk, but whatever. Too bad about the xbox. Hope they got the RROD. My xbox got it one time and I almost passed out from shock. I punched to power button so hard I thought I might have broken it haha
