    Yes, in some ways there is. Like writing with a fountain pen. I am left handed and it takes practice to avoid smearing the ink.

    Left handed people are proven to be better, any way. You right handed people need to change post haste or you will suffer.:mad: The problem is right handed people can't understand that they are not as good, but I never judge.
    :mad:
    I mean :eek:

    You are more likely to be killed by a champagne cork than by a poisonous spider.

    I prefer to think of it this way: Not sure how manufacturing enters the picture. Different materials; glass, polymers, polarizers, and chemicals required to make the idiot screens require differing amounts of energy to manufacture, as will the TV/LCD/OLED/CRT. God only knows how to determine overall, which kind of display saves or costs the most energy. There is the TV as well as the manufacturing costs that must be considered. Then there is transportation, dealer prep and options.

    So I decided to live a brown life, buy the biggest screen I can afford and forget the savings or lack of savings and just pay the bill. I'll smoke in the TV wing of Bob Manor and laugh at the environment. I be a payin for it, so I be getting it all despite how much the planet hurts and cries.

    So HA, HA, Ha!:eek:

    I've always wondered how his music would have evolved over time if he'd had a full career instead of dying in that plane crash.

    Me too, I always wonder what it must have been like to be alive back then, hearing him when the music was brand new. It was so different from anything they must have been listening to at the time.

    The TV you currently own is using more power than a CRT TV, I have a bunch of them here and they use less power :)
