bunner: metallion: It really sucks, but it seems like everybody is at the cable company's mercy.

I spoze.  Dope dealers like their customers to be very humble and forgiving.  Then again, there's always rehab.

What is that place? I need one of those word things that tell you what words mean? Where can I get one? Anybody?

d23: I've been using open source since the 90s, genius.


And that's where you sh*t the bed with anything other than snotty posture of dime store superiority to offer.  As far as your pissant sarcasm, .7 percentile Stanford Binets.  Bye, Socrates.  :  )

BitwiseShift: Got rabbit ears back in early 2000, since HDTV broadcasts were just starting and wanted to get local stations as they came on line.  Worked well, even could pick up 60 miles away (lived on top of a hill in the hill country).

Funny thing, the Hypesters at Best Buy, who had never tried to get local HDTV at home and probably had never seen an HDTV tuner, said rabbit ears would never be sold at their high class establishment and besides, rabbit ears all have a virus and you'd need to buy the special $100 virus protection.


Nah, you just had a bad salesperson, could happen anywhere. My local Best Buy Service Advisor clued me into Monster rabbit ears, they were expensive at $499, but they're gold plated, and he said the gold plating keeps the viruses out. And sure enough, I haven't had a virus in my tv since!

Don't forget the extended warranty though(it was only $149), if the gold plating wears off, they're practically useless!

I hear Bose is good too.

1966 CBS programming also included Green Acres, probably the best sitcom of all time.3.bp.blogspot.com

The thing with TeeVee is the same thing with pop music.  It's not new anymore and there's about 2947598279847 avenues of content distribution begging for content.  It's not as easy to monetize and pay for actual writer, actors, quality production methods and garner enough ad revenue to make it profitable.  So you just essentially turn the hose on from the septic tank and blast whatever schadenfreude will keep the people eating popcorn.  Lowest common denominator TeeVee and music that's about making money and not music or TeeVee.  Stay tuned for Ow My Balls after this 2 hour presentation of a loop of Miley Cyrus shaking her ass like a meth addled alley whore.If you want actual, interesting shows with writers, panel shows, production values and sitcoms that are actually funny, you might need to move to England.  2¢

pag1107: There's a pretty penny to be made putting that spectrum up for auction.


"Well, we're all moved in now and the resources have been stripped, manufactured and sold.  Now what do we do?"

"Take everything left, gut it like a fish, whore it out to the highest bidders and move the rest overseas."

"Can we bleed them dry for less stuff every year?"

"This is America, sir.  Of course we can.  I'll have none of that commie libtard talk interrupting my profit enjoyment."
