Why the hell do they make tv's long and skinny so everyone looks short and fat??? Skinny and thin tv's are great...beats those huge big-back heavy assed things most of us grew up with...but why can't they make them skinny and SQUARE? This rectangle thing just isn't cutting it. You wind up paying for a 42 inch tv but you have 4'2" 500 lbspeople running around so you wind up making it square on your tv so you can watch something correctly and you wind up with a 42 inch tv that shows a 32 inch screen. THEN, on top of that, when you do pop in a dvd and make it wide screen, you get a distortion of where the smaller screen was because it was burned in to it. What the hell is wrong with designers? Are they stupid or something? Feel free to post your own rant.....just don't make it a left or right issue. For once.
