I always wondered what I would do in this situation, until a couple of years ago when my apartment was on fire.

Apparently the answer is grab my wallet and cell phone, call 911 knock on all my neighbor's door to tell them to get out of the building, wait until the fire department shows up, and then go to the nearest bar and drink my face off.

Won't they hear screaming, "FIIIIIIIRRRREEEEE!!!!!" as I'm grabbing all my s*** and running naked for my car?

Not enough information. Am I insured? Is it a 2D TV? Is my neighbor hot?
 
2014-03-08 11:58:29 AM
What type of TV is it?
 
2014-03-08 12:01:37 PM
I'm sure guys just think about the inches.


42 and under? Let it go.

50 and above, risk it.

I admit there is a grey area and it depends on how much smoke there is.

I know you're trying to be comical, but are you possibly retarded?  Do you know how layaway works?  If it was on layaway, it'd still be at the store - not in their apartment...

Depends:

How big is the screen? Is it HD?
 
2014-03-08 12:09:55 PM
This is where having home or contents insurance can save lives.

I would be looking forward to insurance buying me all new shiat as I got the fark out of there.

Hard drive and phone. Unless you're some kind of weirdo with offsite backups, you can't replace data.

2014-03-08 12:18:24 PM
1) Grab wallet
2)grab phone
3)If I have time, grab hard drives which are in a quick release cage, plus the few backup drives I have
4) Get the hell out of burning building. In urgent cases 1-3 can be ignored.

Save the TV

Obamacare will pay for your burn-recovery and skin grafts

/uh-huh
 
2014-03-08 12:28:52 PM
I think these two people went well into the red on this...

Assume the television cost $1,000 (you can get a 60" TV here in California for $1,000). Now figure how mow much an ER visit is, including ambulance etc. Now take that ER visit and multiply it by 2.

Also be sure to factor in how nasty smoke inhalation is. You're body is basically ingesting the chemical makeup of everything that's burning...

It always surprises me how people are willing to risk bodily injury to save property. I think if people realized how expensive ER visits and diagnostic tests are they might reconsider.

/heat of the moment?

2014-03-08 12:56:34 PM
How about B & C -- you "save" your neighbor's TVs and other expensive items?

Sad, sad, sad commentary on this country when people think they can't live without their TV.

/Haven't had a TV in a few years now.   Not missing it at all.
 
2014-03-08 12:58:41 PM
Homeowner's or renter's insurance will help you replace anything you've lost.

That said, if it were safe enough, I'd still try to save my laptop and my silverware.  Everything else can burn, baby, burn.

Renter' insurance. Cheap to obtain and a godsend in a disaster.

Depending on where the fire is, grab cell, keys and wallet.  If I have enough time, toss some clothes out the window because I hate clothes shopping.

I've got a 40" Samsung that cost me ten dollars. It was given to me because it had no picture, and the transformer it needed for repair cost me a little less than ten dollars (free shipping!) on Ebay. Go out of my way to save it? Naw. I have a TV card in my computer, and a 27" monitor. I've been completely content with that, but I couldn't turn down a big screen television for next to nothing.
I really would rather not have to face losing all of my stuff. Though it would be liberating in a way; if the place I live in now were to burn, I might end up quitting my job and leaving town. The fact that I have an inexpensive place to live is one of the only things keeping me here.

The place I rent from requires renters insurance. My flash drive is my back up for my old computer.

A "flat screen" tv? No, it would be too heavy to move.
A "flat panel" tv? Maybe, if I had time.

Buddy, you've lost that debate long ago. Everyone calls them flat screen TVs, regardless if that name was already taken by some technological cul-de-sac. Though if you want to be some linguistic hipster, I'm sure you can jump into your motor car to catch an aerodyne.
