An amusing article and quite true if you are an older person that requires fishbowl glasses and a hearing aide.

I really thought that my wife woul dbe like that for real upon upgrading TVs. Now, she is just a big an HD-snob as I am, occasionally bitching about poor quality of NBC's HD feed in Austin, even. Heh.

Heh, my dad did the same thing when we got a new HDTV. He can't really see a difference between the two, the only nice thing is that the tv is bigger.

I would probably be that person flipping out as well. I would just assume you don't have retina's in your eyes.

The whole article was about how to be a prick to piss off your neighbor. WTH?

Anyway, my wife honestly can't tell the difference between HD and regular TV. Then again, she doesn't drive at night because she can't see.
