Why Your HD TV Is Just Lame Compared To This

Why Your HD TV Is Just Lame Compared To This

“This is incorrect. 120Hz is a waste, because NOBODY broadcasts at 120Hz. DVD/Bluray players send their signals out at 60Hz. Cable boxes? 60Hz. Broadcast? 60Hz. (Technically, it's 59.94Hz, but who's counting?)

120Hz is just a good way for the manufacturers to get more money out of your pocket.

4K is a LONG way from being implemented. It takes too much bandwidth to be feasible right now.”

IDSavant on Nov 6, 2013 at 14:17:58

“I purchased a 240Hz television and it seems no better then my old 60Hz so I agree with you. Also my picture sometimes has what I call feathering which appears as if multiple images very close to the image itself. Could be my provider or my DVR causing the problem.”

“Then you would be talking about the wrong problem.

There are already laws in place to prevent the mentally ill from owning guns. REPORTING is where the failure is occurring.

This is the perfect example of how many people over-react to problems. You don't solve a problem by punishing EVERYONE. You enforce the laws we ALREADY have, to prevent people (like the Navy Yard shooter) from acquiring guns.

That's how it's supposed to work.”

“You obviously have nothing interesting to offer, either, if all you have to do is make comments like that.

Would you trust a doctor that had a neck tat of some gang saying? Of course not.”

“Says the person demeaning someone for tattoos on their own skin.
And of course I'd trust a doctor with a 'gang saying' tattooed on him. You don't know me or what I would do, so speak for yourself, Mr Stiff. I'd be proud of him that he likely moved past the 'gang' life and pushed himself through school to become a doctor.”

“"Hello, Police department? I'd like to report a package being delivered to my neighbour with no label on it, it feels like it might have something heavy and illegal in it. It weighs about 150lbs, can we talk about rewards and when his house might come up for auction?"”

“Maybe they're acceptable at the local convenience store, but I wouldn't want to see one on my doctor.

And you have no idea how much I make.”

Nicoled609 on Aug 20, 2013 at 00:28:23

“Does a tattoo make your doctor less of a person? Less of a human? Less educated then someone without? So because a person has a tattoo they should or can only make minimum wage or they can not be a professional? That is ridiculous!! Small minded judgmental people ..... doesn't matter how much money you make when it is easy for you to sit in judgement of others. Opinions are each persons right but judging someone on their decision to do what they want on their body is not an opinion ..... nor does it make them condemned to anything but comments from small minded idiots like you :)”

jacmed on Aug 19, 2013 at 13:20:42

“I have no idea how much you make either, moidstffl, but I have seen visible tattoos on many of the younger doctors (mostly under age 45 or so) when I worked for them and in hospitals for almost 50 years, on my dentist, on the CEO of a Fortune-500 company based in Chicago who happens to be my cousin's husband's brother, on that cousin and her husband who happen to be very successful real estate entrepreneurs, and on two attorneys who happen to be neighbors of mine. So, my guess is that all of those professionals make at least a mid-6-figure salary. As sadiemae stated, tattoos have become a very acceptable part of our culture whether you approve of them or not.”

“Congratulations! You've condemned yourself to a lifetime of minimum wage employment!

I will never hire anyone with visible tattoos for a professional position.”

“Looks like you're missing an 'i' in your username. It should read 'stiff' instead.
What a terribly boring soul. If you won't hire anyone with art on their body, then you obviously have nothing interesting to offer.”

“It's on his thigh. Can't you read and comprehend?! Pay attention.”

jdstep97 on Aug 19, 2013 at 12:15:43

“This tattoo is on his thigh, though. With a professional position, I think he would be wearing pants. So I don't think it would be visible.”

sadiemae1214 on Aug 19, 2013 at 12:09:46

“Hardly minimum wage employment. I've known several professionals (lawyers,doctors, etc.) with visable tatts that make more money then you ever will. Tatts are a very acceptable part of our culture now and you will be missing out on a lot of good employees.”

“Yes, I DO know.  I buy it every week.  But which is a better choice, a pound of crab legs or a several pounds of chicken?
It's no contest.  
But if some of these people made good choices, they wouldn't need SNAP in the first place.  I realize that sometimes things happen that you can't control, but we have multi-generational SNAP recipients in this country.”

p c r on Aug 16, 2013 at 16:52:49

“Today is my birthday. If I had an EBT card, I would be very tempted to buy those crab legs. If I had an EBT card, I would realize that choosing to do that would result in a week of Ramen.
People do not CHOOSE to be poor. The upper class has taken away the mobility that my generation had, where parents worked so that their child would do better than they.
Most people receiving assistance do work at less than living wages, though they are trying as hard as they can, or are disabled, elderly or children.”

“SNAP funds should only be applied towards fresh or frozen fruits/vegetables, fresh/frozen meats including sirloin and whitefish, breads/pastas, and canned goods.

Don't want people to judge you? Then don't use my tax money to buy high priced foods.”

“your post gave me a great laugh. thanks. sirloin. oh my. i take it you are not poor and have not ever been really poor. sirloin may seem like a poor cheap cut of meat to you but take it from someone who has been on food stamps before, to poor people sirloin is like fillet minion. if you want a more realistic portrayal of meat options for poor people please look at a banquet entree meal in your freezer section. feeds four for three bucks. how many can you feed on three bucks worth of sirloin?”

“You have no idea how much more expensive it is to buy healthy food than the unhealthy alternatives. No one should have to depend on beans as their only protein and Ramen as their side. Meat is expensive. Low carbohydrate foods are expensive. Real food is expensive compared to the Frankenfoods made out of chemical processed in a lab (ex, cheese product v. real cheese).
If someone who is down on their luck wants a nice meal to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary or just to have something nice on occassion, I don' begrudge them. I remember my old Grandmaw saying, "There but for the grace of God go I."
If your job disappears or a horrible illness or accident takes away your ability to provide what you are accustomed to, know that I will not judge you for wanting an occasional nice meal.”

“How about all those useless tanks the military don't want?

Congress is determined to spend $500 million on Abrams tanks the army doesn't even want. Are you outraged? It costs about $1.5 million for each of the FORTY times the House has tried to overturn Obamacare. More outrage?

I hope you are writing about those too.

Who decides what is good food and what is junk food? You? Me? Where does chocolate go? Chocolate, especially dark chocolate is supposed to be good for you, so is it junk food or not?”
