RE: the remote control thread

tv, cable, vcr, xbox, sirius receiver, stereo - such an eyesore on the coffee tables. But then, I'm too paranoid about having all functions in one receiver like you have. Unlike our current administration, I like to have checks and balances. [:)]

RE: the remote control thread

This is too complicated. Are your remotes gas or electric? My whole house is on a remote system. It doesn't hurt until you think about it...

RE: the remote control thread

I have a stick about 3 feet long. When I want to watch a different program I simply wack my wife on the back of the head and say, "Channel 5.......And bring me some Pringles, bitch!"

That's fine as long as you can rely on the competence of your wife. We aren't all that lucky.

She's 50 but can still get up pretty quick if you wop her a couple of times with a sharp stick.

"Sharp" eh?
I wouldn't have to exert myself with all the wacking and whatnot, a simple pain-filled poke and be done with it. You truly are a man of science.

RE: the remote control thread

Tv, Vcr, stereo, dvd, cam corder, stick, rubber band, child, cd player, wife and a very well trained dog.
All I have to do is sit back drink beer and get fat on cable tv. [:D]

Oh yea and the mini remote for the portable dvd player in the car. How dumb. My daughter will sit right next to it and still use the remote.
Lazy kid, I don't know where she get's it.
Prolly from her momma.
