MR BILL HELP I'AM GOING CRAZY

by stewart norrie / June 7, 2007 12:56 PM PDT

Why is it when you try to help someone they dont listen to a word you say its maddening. Like the guy that bought a digital t.v. and thinks its hi-def. or someone going on and on and on about which t.v. to buy The real truth is most new hi-def sets including entry level set will give you a movie theater quality and I doubt you will see any difference at with picture Its like my old 72" d.l.p. toshiba the picture quality is wounderful and I did check out the new 70" Sony monster hooked up to a blue ray player they were showing Casino Real and I cannot see any difference between my old junk and the new Sony Now speakers are more important that the t.v. you buy ha ha steweee

AT 68 HE IS SORT OF A FATHER FIGURE TO ME. ha ha. god I wish I could write and spell like this man. Any way I feel sorry for any salesperson that has to wait on these folks they would go on and on and never buy anything or wind up buying thje cheapest piece of garbage they can find anyway there are some of you that I really now there stuff. Well lost at poker but did come in third place this week so readdy for the finales this sunday and if I win off to Vegas now its time to watch my ugly Toshiba have a nice nite all in closing had a nice day took doggie to beauty shop and bought new bling bling tires for caddy and bought this fancy shirt from walmart ha ha steweee

Stewee, I am not quite 68. My doggies are manly breed,

labrador retrievers. They don't get beauty shopped. They do get bathed about twice a year. Yes, your Caddy deserves quality rubber to ride on. If you win & get to go to Vegas, shop early the big clothing shop in the Mandalay Bay mall towards Luxor. I found they had an enormous selection of quality brand Hawaiian shirts on sale at uncommon discounts. I couldn't resist getting a very tropical Tommy Bahama for me to stroll as the **** of the walk. Oh, I forgot, you are a dedicated WalMart shopper because that's where America shops.

But, this time of year I don't check out the forum all too frequently. I try to work as hard physical labor as I can. My way of doing physical therapy to fight the neuropathy that wants to hurt me. I'm unsteady on my feet, but am fighting it as best I can. I didn't live this long to surrender to an electric scooter. Too damn young & ornery for that.

Listen here! "Steweee"

A TV IS A BIG PURCHASE! I'D RATHER NOT GO OUT AND BLOW $2000 ON A PIECE OF CRAP! IF YOU GO CRAZY BECAUSE PEOPLE ASK ALOT OF QUESTIONS, GO TO ANOTHER FORUM! THIS IS WHERE QUESTIONS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ASKED! DON'T GO MAKING OTHER PEOPLE FEEL BAD BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE IN TVs AND ARE TRYING TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION!

In reply to: Listen here! "Steweee"

and yess I spent over a year looking for that perfect t.v that I truly love. What I meant was all the t.v.s you were checking out were truly the crem de la cream and they all would give you a wounderful picture I doubt you would see any difference in picture quality. If I had to choise it would be the Pioneer elite plasma saw one yesterday hooked up to a blue ray player the picture was beyond clear in otherwords better than perfect ha ha. anyway please post back to us and let us know which one you bought and how you like it p.s next step speakers yes it took me 2 years to find the sound of my dreams so sorry I get this way when I lose at poker steweeee

The way I see it is....
by whizkid454 / June 8, 2007 4:26 AM PDT

For example, I see a really good TV in store and I say, "Oh! I want that one!" and it's $2000. A week later, I see in a magazine another TV that is supposed to be better than the TV I already bought and it was less money! That is why I was researching ALL of the possibilities so I didn't miss out on a good TV. I understand that all the ones I researched were excellent, but one is better than another at something, and that something could be what I'm looking for. Anyway, I do appreciate all of yours and the others help on my decision and I value your comments very much so.

So any ideas on speakers? Happy

omg

another speaker thread w/o mention of needs and constraints, esp budget.

Sorry, if you've been paying attn, you won't get any good help w/o more info. Just wasting our time, and yours. (I can't believe some people still haven't figured this out yet, not just you). Let's see like the tv, $2000 budget, 50/50 ratio? Or will follow HT experts with the 30/70 ratio of video to audio. Or are you like many here who are 80/20 video to audio?

What if I listed a whole bunch, and then you say, sorry too much money. Or sorry too big. Or sorry wrong color. Or sorry have to be bookshelves. Or sorry ... Going to find you choices would be a complete waste of my time in some these cases.

Wow.

My question was actually a continuation from another thread that led into this thread. Were you a part of the other discussion that included budgets? A little humor goes too far these days I guess...

your sense of humor...

In reply to: Wow.

well, anything for laffs at anyone else's expense. If not thus contrived, I do offer my opinion on such "jokes", if you will.

These types of jokes are virtually impossible to discern from those that are true noobies. In fact, Im still not sure about you. I could* find you other examples. Once discovered that poster (noobie or not, self perceived as such or not...) is "joking" I usually say nothing. Then the poster wonders "what took me so long". I don't like to respond to plain and simple idiocy as a matter of course.

If jokes that waste others' time is funny to you, more power to you.

A word for everyone. Civility. And we have seen much
by NM_Bill / June 8, 2007 6:54 AM PDT

respect from regular posters here for the uninformed status of newbees. It exhibits patience and good intentions. Yes, we can occasionally get short with one another. Humor, even jacking up ones friends, helps cope with many of life's realities which require much energy and persistence.

Whizkid is not the only one who has written in a snit. Venting impertinence in all caps is not polite. Yes, a forum is a place to ask questions. We often advise people not to obsess. Whizkid has asked a lot of rapidfire questions. Sometimes to the point of prying us to, ah, come on, tell me the real stuff. As if some of us have been disingenuous. No one has tried to mislead you.

Whizkid, a little acceptance would be nice. I & many like me retireed after 50 years of having to put up with a-holes. An old saying is "patience *******, patience."

I'm locking this thread. Getting too personal here and there

If you want to go personal, continue on Speakeasy. It's their specialisation more or less.
