Not surprising. They gave their guns up for "safety". Why not give up sex for a TV?

Good one Mark !! Interesting !! I hate to admit it but sex can in fact be alot of work, on the other hand watching a large screen T.V. requires almost NO work You could possibly strain a thumb tendon with a remote if you press a button too hard and/ or the wrong way

You could do the same during sex, too!

I wouldn't suggest it, pressing the "buttons" the wrong way during sex can turn a princess into a three headed fire breathing serpent.

I've heard this a few times and just don't get it. I'm thinking many folk over here are a bunch of morons. A big TV implies you have a big house otherwise you're staring at the pixels, I know my neighbour stares at his pixels, moron. I have an average size house and recently moved to a 32" HDTV, any bigger and it would dominate the living room which just ain't right. I really do appreciate viewing HD sources and it's been an absolute pleasure - note, it makes no difference to the complete crap on our tv networks, in a 2 hour film, there is half an hour of adverts. thats WRONG and makes me mad so i never watch live broadcasts.
As for the sex thing, WTF, giving up sex for a bigger TV, that's retarded, warped and despicable. I'm embarrassed to be British, also because we have such a high divorce rate. Many folk in this country are cretinous, weak minded, stupid simpletons, which saddens me very much. BTW, I will only allow one TV in my house because anymore is blatent materialistic, wastefull extravogance.
To give up sex for a big TV (or anything else) is a sin. My wife will vouch for that.

An R50 for testing new design ideas and chucking around
A 600N for chucking around

Indeed it's not. Helis is a hobby and compared to some, I feel the number of helis I have is quite conservative considering the return I get from them. However, this is totally irrelevant to the TV theme.
Can anyone truly justify having more than one TV. Most TV is crap, with negative quality, dodgy programming and detremental quality. It's not a status statement but a declaration of being suckered.

Yug, it's six of one, half dozen of another. There are a lot of people who see our very expensive hobby the same as you see a home that has more than one TV. Heck, some see owning a 90 as a status symbol on this very site! Some of this site's members own a single heli and a RTF heli at that because it's all they can afford!

I personally have 2 TVs in my house. One in the living room and one very small one in my bedroom. Neither are HD and only have basic cable. Hell, only one has a DVD player hooked up to it. Does it mean I think someone who has 3 in their home is being materialistic or wasteful? No, not any more than I think a guy with 4 helis is being materialistic or wasteful.

Why are we so quick to judge other people based on their possessions?
