Description: (click show to see it)
You shouldn't buy this TV.
TV just rots your brain, right? And this gigantic Olevia 265TFHD 65" LCD HDTV
wil rot it 69% more than a 50" TV, and 139% more than a 42" screen. The
filth and degeneracy of today's TV programming looks even more filthy
and degenerate "thanks" to the 1080p resolution of this TV's <a href="http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0EIN/is_2007_Oct_15/ai_n21041">Sharp-made LCD panel</a>. That super high-end Silicon Optics Realta HQV
video processor adds even more lurid detail. Instead of wasting your
time on some football game or explosive action movie, wouldn't it be so
much better for you to sit in silence and contemplate how to be a more
Besides, we're sure you can find better uses
for the money. The excitement of enormous high-definition TV and movies
is nothing compared to the satisfaction of a well-insulated attic, or
the security of knowing you just brought your car loan a few months
closer to early maturity. Pleasure and excitement are fleeting -
forbearance and self-denial are forever.
And think of the
effect it will have on your home. Instead of long, detailed
conversations about proper behavior, you and your family will be
agitated by life-size titans executing soaring slam dunks, and car
crashes so real you can almost smell the burning gasoline. Can you even
fit this behemoth into your living room? You don't even know if the
bezel around the screen will be black or silver. What if it clashes
with your decor, and you have to completely redecorate so it fits in?
look what happened to Syntax Brillian. They tried to have it all. In
their heedless hubris, they thought they could manufacture a
superlative 65" TV and sell it at a low price, and they boogied
themselves right into Chapter 11. Sure, they promise to honor their
on-site warranty coverage, but unfortunately, no warranty can put their
company back together again. And the optional <a href="http://www.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=5732">SquareTrade</a> extended warranty might cover defects in this TV...but can it repair the damage to your mind, body, and soul?
Clearly, the responsible thing to do is to pretend like you never heard about this Olevia 265TFHD 65" 1080p LCD HDTV.
Once you fall prey to its siren song of enormous, super-sharp video
quality, your natural preference for calm, quiet reflection will be
spoiled. You'll spend all your free time immersed in enticing, exciting
programming on the clear, vibrant theater-sized TV screen, marvelling
at how lifelike and dynamic everything looks.
And that would be a real shame, wouldn't it?

Can you imagine if they made animal crackers like this? Not those
cheap ones that taste like paste and saltines, we're talking the real
graham flour animal crackers that come in the teeny box with the
animals on the side. Imagine that taste with these shapes. Wouldn't
that be brilliant?
But the answer to that question is no.
No, that would not be brilliant. That would be a Sophie's Choice of a
snack, having to decide between keeping the flying bear and the one
horned eye patch monster or eating the flying bear and the one horned
eye patch monster. You'd either be hungry and surrounded by beauty or
satiated in an cold, ugly world. That's no choice for a human being to
make. That's no choice at all.
This shirt was designed by: Filipino artist <a href="http://csjwcr.deviantart.com/">Christian San Jose</a>.
He's simultaneously an astonishingly religious name, a really good idea
for a divided city in some video game about pirates, and a solid title
for an indy rock band's third album. Your parents did good, Christian.

By day, Titus Vineyards is a pillar of the wine community. Their 40
acres in Napa Valley produce grapes for some of Napa's most premium
limited-production wines. Since 1967, two generations of the Titus
family have built the winery into an esteemed source for high-quality
reds. Their low-intensity farming techniques are just one more facet of
their responsible, trustworthy reputation.
Vineyards has a secret life. When the wine establishment isn't looking,
Titus creeps to the other side of the tracks. Looking furtively around
to see if they're being followed, they slip into a disreputable little
online wine store where anything goes. And under their overcoat, they
carry a wine that they wouldn't be caught dead selling through
It's a renegade blend of Petite Sirah
and Petit Verdot, going under an assumed name: 2004 Lot 1. They don't
dare release it to restaurants or wine shops. Big, powerful,
concentrated red and dark fruit notes like this are not for the faint
of heart. Plum sauce, berry pie, and strappy molasses flavors haunt
your palate long after the last drop. But be warned: kicks like this
come at a price. No matter how blue their teeth turn, true Lot 1 fiends
can't get enough.
Their mission complete, Titus fades back
into the night, to re-emerge in daylight as an upright wine citizen.
The only ones who know about Titus's double life are those who've
encountered the sinful delights of Titus Vineyards 2004 Lot 1 in some
dark, sordid corner of the wine fringe. And the secret is safe with us.
