Re: Philips 42" Plasma TV Problems - Blue Dots Randomly Appear

Out of your list above, I'm guessing it's the last one http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:8bziPyA-Zb0J:tech.yahoo.com/us/1994306890%3Freview%3D2+Philips+42PF7321D+Blue+grain&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=5&gl=us&client=firefox-a sounds like it was "over-driven" Given the cost, an extended warranty might have p...

Re: Ban or not to ban lord of the flies?

What about a book that says all niggers should be returned to slavery? What about the Holocaust was fake and even if it was real the Jews deserved it? How about a book of child porn? What about a book talking about the virtue of child rape? How the little kids ask for it and it matures them better?...

Oh well, now when I am an old grumpy man I will have great stories how about in my day we had these things called polaroids... Haha, ...
