clearing the airwaves

video

This post just made me think of "the horror" should Americans ever be forced to do as the rest of the world and change over to the metric system :)


I just picked up 2 converter boxes for the gallery, why I need 2 in a space that is only 2 rooms and 600 sq ft is a good question, guess the answer is: because I can??? because I wanted two (too)

The coupons are $40 off, so each box is only $20.00. Apparently the box works really well and you can get 12 "crystal" clear channels. I say "apparently" as I was not the one to hook up the boxes and have not seen the clarity yet. I want to add that I, unlike the lady in the video, am sure that I could have hooked them up without assistance.

Well that is debatable as I have an allergy to instructions of all kinds… anyway I would advise everyone to get one; it’s almost FREE hehee and that is a good enough reason for me.

Quite frankly I think our government could have supplied a $20 digital TV to anyone with an analog TV cheaper than the billions they spent on advertising, mailing coupons, printing the credit card like coupons and supplying the boxes...but why would we want the government to do anything that might actually save money and make sense?

You can get a $40 coupon Here

Did i mention half of them are about Jesus Christ?

Not really, only a quarter. And there's no VH1.

evidently, the coupons are now expired... There were 3 different guys at radio shack yesterday trying to get converter boxes and the RS computer would not accept their coupons. They were livid- and radio shack had about 100 boxes sitting on the floor but the lady would not let them go for the $40 off - All I can say is the persons running the program for the governments ears must have been burning...
