If the television was faulty they should replace it.

You should have posted this in Foo or something.

Is this now the 'Living Tv-free' Forum?

Why is this story even mentioned in bikeforums?

Point taken. I will amend my postings in the future.

That being said what is the point of the segway, economics of cars, living selective minimalist, state of mass transit (not related to bikes) then.

For the record I do agree and enjoy most of these posts.

I don't read the other forums much on this fora so I just posted here. I didn't see it any worse than some past postings around here. Please have it taken off or let it fall down the listing.

maybe you can get off your high wheel and come back down to the 700 and 650's with us?

1+ If you, a car-free person, feel that this is related... then it is.

I suppose I could go in debt to buy a fancy schmancy cell phone that will let me watch TV. And make a handlebar mount for it so I can watch TV while bike riding. As long as I don't use earphones I think it would be legal in my state. I have seen people riding no handed and texting and they didn't get pulled over. And it would help stimulate the economy and help avert the coming credit card crises a little bit.
