Obstinate Alabama Man With SDTV Vows: I Will Never Buy An HDTV
by Mark on 2/27/2007 (8)

SDTV: Unchanged since the days of Robert E. Lee.
TUSCALOOSA, AL - Tuscaloosa, Alabama, resident Hobie Potts, snubbing the HDTV resolution revolution, brandished his remote control like a Confederate saber sword, curtly snarling, "High definition, like hell, suh!", before a living room filled with only mildly surprised family members early Tuesday.

"I been a watchin' standard definition TV since I was just a pup. Why should I change now? I'll be gosh danged if I want to see the close up pimples and wrinkles on Joe and Jane everybody's face. Hell, I can go to the mall and see that if I want it, TV is a fantasy world to me, and standard definition TV keeps it that way! A man has got to have his illusions, you know!"

Indeed, Hobie Potts is not the only one.

A breathless America is gripping their remotes, stunned by just a wee bit too much visual detail on HDTV broadcasts, revealing facial flaws and fissures in their favorite celebs like never before. Now that Hollywood is literally under the microscope, most agree that producers and make up artists must respond in turn in order to keep the magic of TV alive and well, or just plain alive, period.

"Some things are better left the same." Growled Potts "Last time I bought a new truck was back in 80', and I've been drinking Budweiser beer since the 50's. Stop changing everything. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, that's my motto."

Pott's wife, Brenda Lee, lamented "Fact is, Hobie is just too damn cheap to buy a new TV. Wait until 42" Plasmas hit the 500 dollar mark. He'll be poppin' the zits on the Stars asses with best of them, after that, alright!""0" style0" style

He can always get a digital tuner and hook it up to his old relic. Chances are the goverment will hand them out to people too poor to switch on their own. </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Well, I was trying to draw an analogy between how we suppress the truth and TV resolution, but I can see you missed that. *sigh* </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

The new security measures on comments aren't slowing the spammers btw. I guess they are entering them manually, not by bot, or maybe both, or have side slipped the codes. Unsure.n. </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

I know... I am going to try replacing the static text with images and see if that helps... if they're doing them by hand, then they've got way too much time on their hands.s </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Considering the volume and frequency, I'd guess bot, so go with the images. It's always the bots! s </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>
