....for a flatscreen TV? Would people need flatscreen TV's if they didn't invent and market them.

Why is it that I saw a family from the USA crying on CNN because they can't buy a huge TV that they need for the Superbowl, when just a 1000 miles away, in our side of the World, people are forced to feed their children and themselves dirt?, f'in' MUD man!!!

WTF people?, get a grip! Be thankful for what you have. No vacation this year -vs- eating dirt, perspective. Perhaps?

No matter how big/expensive they get, regardless of the fact that the programming has hit bottom and still digging, people will buy them. Somehow the perspective has been lost.

CNN is not perspective. smile Would those people have been on the dole by any chance?

i am perfectly happy without one. we have a guy in one of our associations who is a year behind on his payments (to the tune of a few grand). we filed on him and are getting ready to have a sheriff's sale to get the $ cuz he is broke. dontcha know, when bf got the guy to open his door, he had an ENORMOUS full-wall size flat screen tv in his living room.

i have to remind our kids to get a grip all the time. i remind them of how we saw the happy 'less fortunate' kids who will probably never have what they already have.

seems to me that people see what others have and they feel they must be entitled to that stuff too.

Heck, I don't even buy cable... so I go to a local bar/grill to watch the Tigers play!

I dunno what I'm gonna do when all the TV's in the US have to be digital.

When's that happening in the US? In Europe all analogue channels will be turned off by (I think) 2012.

eh, doesn't mean you have to run out and buy an expensive new tv. You may have to pick up a set-top converter for, probably, less than $50, but that is much cheaper than a new tv.
