finally...

Well finally after 4 months Cain and I got ourselves a TV. We're no longer cut off from society. Kind of odd after all this time.

Until Skeeter and I got together, I didn't have a TV. For the most part, I still think it's a huge waste of time. It is good for just vegging out in front of though.

Congrats on your new TV.

When I went to buy mine I went to buy a Samsung 42" and my wife saw a 50" Sony. We bought the 50" Sony. My wife is NUMBER 1!!!

At 42 inches the difference between 1080 and 720 is negligible.

Only when considering viewing distance.

40" is about the smallest I'd want a 1080p tv though... my 32" 720p does just fine for my room w/ my PS3, but anything bigger should be 1080p.

The room is too small for a 50. Our eyes would move to the sides of our heads, plus, Cain didn't want to wait the three days to have them deliver it so it had to fit in the jeep (which I never thought it would, but he was right)


It's 1080p.


Amy..... I have sooooooo much to say over that 8 inch comment

oddly enough our big screen 60 HD" has been down for almost 3 months waiting for the repair company to figure out what is wrong with it. Can't wait till it gets back up for football season. And no I am not joking about it being 3 months... and yes I am pissed.

This would be an excuse for an upgrade.

We are too. We looked at a high def TV once but you know, I just don't need to see the pimples on the porn actresses butt in perfect clarity

We did finally get a dvd player though, it was great for the 6 months it lasted. the next one made it about 8 months...

I have no idea, Dist, I just watched Cain's eyes get really big so I knew it was good.

Hahaha... Yes, my big glowing life support system is up and running. It's 42" LCD 1080p HD. The cable guy came by to hook up the box and once the magical pulses of entertainment started flowing thru it I was hypnotized.

It's cool the way the HD channels picture is automatically resized to fit the screen. I could use "Over Write" to get all the pictures the same size but the standard channels look just as awesome without resizing them. Especially since the TV I had in my room back east was only a 13 inch color TV.

Naw, we're looking for a drafting table to move the "garage" off the kitchen counter. He's built the back axle but hasn't posted it yet because we've been doing a great deal of running around this week getting some new furniture and such. The paper jeep will continue, no worries.
