I wonder sometimes, it's 71 outside, why is the AC running.
I already know the answer. The fridge, dishwasher, washer, dryer, incandescent bulbs.
This TV, we bought about 10 years ago, it works well, but it's like walking by the fireplace.

Mine is the same way.  Walk by it and you can feel the heat being emitted from it.

Energy sucker, I saw a new curved screen advertised. I'm one who will say, if it ain't broke ,don't fix it.

When they first came out with LED sets, I was looking at one at hh gregg & I noticed the same thing. Got up near the screen & I could feel the heat really radiating off of it. I even asked the sales guy about it.

But actually, that makes no sense because LED TV's are supposed too consume less power & generate the least heat of all the different types of new TVs. 

This could have been an early version of the LED set that wasn't a true LED, but rather an LCD screen illuminated from behind by an LED panel. So the heat I felt, could have been coming from some other component inside the set. 

I dunno. All this new electronic techno crap is so confusing.

I do know that my straight up LCD set doesn't seem to generate any significant or noticeable amount of heat. I'll have to check it next time I have it on.

I heard about those. Supposedly they give you a more "3D-like" view,

They're also saying that if you don't go 65" or larger, it's just a waste of money.

Are you sure that temp isn't coming from your wife's head after she's eaten a few jalapenos dipped in cayenne pepper?

I know my TV isn't hot because I still have the receipt proving that I paid for it.

Funny story about that... when I bought my TV from Sears & went to the customer pick up area to pick it up, their computers were down. A young kid who didn't seem to really be on the ball, went into the back, got my TV, brought it out & just had me sign some piece of paper or something upon which I just scribbled something. He apparently lost or just tossed it in the trash, because a couple of days later, I got a call from Sears telling me that I could come down & pick up my TV if I wanted to. 

I told the guy that I was gonna do them a favor by admitting that I already got the TV rather than coming back in & picking up a second set, which I could have gotten for free.

I'm fairly certain that Drive-In screens were curved.

When I fist saw this topic "Is your TV hot?" I thought, well...

OK my TV isn't hot but my blender sure gives me a thrill!

We won't even discuss the spin cycle on the washing machine.

I love the way Annette Bening says "Have you ever seen whiter whites?"  LOL 

I was around 12 or so the first time I saw The Great Outdoors, so I didn't quite get the full gist of that joke until seeing it again a few years later.

Annette Benning.
Anyone remember the weird scene from the Sopranos?
Tony was losing his teeth and Annettes hubby was singing a Lional Ritchie song.

It was a dream/nightmare scene, one of the times Tony got shot.
There were a couple of strange episodes like when the horse was in the house.

I remember the dream he had where he was at the big white house and everyone he knew was there. I can't remember all the details.

Speaking of James Gandolfini (another huge loss) - I caught this movie called "Down the Shore" - low budget but really, really good.
