    My direct manager was ALWAYS asking what I was going to do next.

    So I started telling him..."Well, as soon as I leave your office,
    I'll walk down the hall to my office and take my key out of my pocket
    and go inside. Then I'll sit down and lift the telephone handset...."

    and spend what, about $3000-$4000?? No thanks, a little out of my
    price range, and almost triple what my Wega cost.

    ¿What do you mean "take a crap"? ¿Shouldn't it really be give some crap?

    No, in this case, we're talking about *leaving* a crap.

    Giving some crap is what Larry does quite often over in alt.cellular.verzion.

    Mine had one too, but after leaving it engaged several times while
    driving in traffic, I didn't want that to happen while behind a herd of
    Hell's Angels, so I had a small lamp added to remind me. Sure enough,
    the very next day, there they were.

    Enjoy the CNN logo on every station too. One of our customers has
    Panasonic Plasma Tvs all over their building. The oldest one in the
    building is 2 years old with some being just 6 months old. Every single
    one of them has a burned image on them. The one at the lobby that displays
    the weather channel has a burned on weather channel logo while the others
    that display company info have their company logo burned. I guess that's a
    good thing if someone ever steals one. They will be able to identify it as
    theirs.

    42" widescreen in the wrapper, $2.1K including 3 annual at-home
    calibrations - and it blows the socks off my old Wega.

    Mines not quite a year yet, and the typical image on mine actually moves.

    Considering the beast I was driving back then, I think the entire car
    was wired wrong - including the driver. :)

    36 inch Wega + matching entertainment center/tv stand + service
    contract = $1200.

    Correction.... 34 inch Wega + matching entertainment center/tv stand +
    service contract = $1200.

    Oh well... it's true you only get what you pay for.

    I got the 36 inch. :)
    They also gave me a free WebTV box (it was some kind of dual
    promotion). It's still in the box...I couldn't even give that away.
    LOL
