Do they count as simulposts if the contents are unrelated?

Probably not.  But it's the thought that counts.

There really ought to be a rule that obviously plagiarized headlines are not to be greenlighted...

There should also be a function that allows us to see which Farker submitted each Greenlight so that copy-cats can be subjected to scorn, ridicule, rude gestures, farts in their general direction, etc.

Buy a shiat brand TV at Best Buy and you get what you pay for.

What if subby is Chris Morran (author of Consumerist article)?  Then is it OK?

/he'd still be saddled with that surname, though.

Thought it was just dumb-ass parents not securing their "fancy new" TVs, but apparently the stands are breaking.

Have a 32" Dynex (precursor/related to Vizio) as a bedroom TV. The stand did seem a bit flimsy, but it's wall mounted in any case.

*tipping intensifies*

Maybe you shouldn't let your kid tug on the wires, dumbass! TV sets are heavy, and if your nitwit
special snowflake pulls on the wires, of course it may fall!  (Perhaps this is the TV's revenge for
your two-year-old "feeding" oatmeal to your VCR and wrecking it.)
