Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What HDTV to buy - LCD, Plasma, DLP
« on: May 9, 2007, 06:20 PM »
I have an LCD.  I couldn't find a 1080p plasma anywhere I looked, and getting a 1080p HDTV was my primary goal.  My research indicated plasmas don't last as long, are susceptible to burn-in if you use them for video games, and run a lot hotter.  Of course I was only looking for a 40" HDTV... if you're looking for something really big a DLP would probably work better.

Currently, and don't laugh, I drive a 96 Grand Prix with check this, 235K miles. 

I drove a '95 Grand Prix to about 130K, until the transmission cooling tube to the radiator rotted out and started spraying tranny fluid all over the street every time I moved it.  The cost of the repair was more than the car was worth, so since my wife's car had just been paid off I pulled the trigger on the La Crosse.  The La Crosse is NICE, nice driving.

Yeah, that too... at the risk of my teeth getting punched out and saved in a sack.

That's no hybrid.  Environment killer.

Considering the SUV we briefly owned before it, I'm doing great at 25 mpg.  But you're right.  My next car will be.  I hope to eventually live in a city where I don't really need one though.

I read recently that the Toyota Prius Hybrid actually has a larger carbon footprint than the H3 Hummer because the Prius takes much, MUCH more energy to manufacture.  The increased gas milage cannot overcome the energy used to manufacture the vehicle even spread across the entire lifetime of the car.

They list the Toyota Scion as the ultimate "green" car when you consider manufacturing energy.

I think the biggest problem with 3 was that Rami didn't want to include Venom, and as a result the Venom story elements fell flat.  It's hard to do things well when you have nothing but contempt for them.  The whole black costume thing was bad.  The way it was introduced.  The way it changed Peter's personality.  The fact that we only saw one relatively short battle with him in it, and in that battle it didn't really help him at all.  The movie could have been much better if had been all red-and-blue Spidey against Sandman, with Osborn thrown in the mix.

Spoilers...







I'm actually happy Rami killed Venom at the end, because this ensures Venom isn't in the next one, so Rami can focus on the villains he's actually passionate about.

I do wish there were better publicity shots of her from the movie.  That hooker disguise was NICE...

My photo was linked from ImageVenue.com, which is not a porn site.  It's an image hosting site similar to PhotoBucket.com, etc.  Many of the high-rez photos posted here originate from there.  So how does the policy apply?
