Name ONE reason why you just bought a flat screen over a projector

I’m not going to go on a whole banter (I’ve already done so here on the topic here) but I simply don’t understand the logic behind getting a TV. Honestly, no matter how many times I see someone with a new TV, I never understand why they just wasted their money on something like that. Maybe I’m mentally insane, but I just don’t understand why people craze over TV’s that are less than half the size of a projector.

Even the whole new “Smart” TV thing, you know, where a Japanese company throws in 5 crappy apps and calls the TV “smart?” I mean, you can plug in a Mac/PC/iDevice/Game Console to a projector. BAM. Smarter than ANY TV on the market. Oh well. Life will go on, I suppose

Home Theater Quality Projectors For Less Than the Ones at ToysRus

Home Theater Quality Projectors For Less Than the Ones at ToysRus

So there are a lot of articles for the best projectors under $100 online. But most of them all show the same thing. Those crappy little projectors that are unable to project an image larger than the size of a computer monitor! And even the ones they sell for kids, you know, to play video games on their bed to project onto the ceiling. Those are even more unrealistic (and overpriced) since not only is the image quality absolutely ridiculous, but in order to keep them upright to the ceiling is near impossible. So I set out to find a projector of worth, that would fit my 3 requirements:

  1. It had to be able to project a large enough image to fit the size of my attic room wall (100 inches across exactly)
  2. It had to be bright enough to see if the lights were off  (and if possible, when they’re on)
  3. It had to fit my budget of $100.

European Fanta Vs. American Fanta: HUGE difference

On my trip to Italy, I realized the fanta (still made by the Coke company) tasted MUCH better than the American version. Since no one believed me, I vowed to prove it when I returned. So I took the product information label off a bottle of Fanta to see how different the SAME drink may be, when it is produced in different countries. Here’s what I found.

Italian Version:
Senza aggiunta di conservanti = No preservatives
Senza coloranti = No dyes
Aromi naturali = Natural flavors (This is the only one that they have in common!)
di aranciata al 12% di succo di arancia si è preparato con il SUCCO di ARANCE= 12% of orange juice to orange juice is made with orange juice. (What that means is beyond me.)

“Non-alcoholic Orange juice.” I really enjoy that sentence.

What’s green is not found in the American version.

Ingredients:

Water. orange juice. carbon dioxide.acidifier citric acid, natural flavors. stabilizing gum acacia. antioxidant ascorbic acid.”Store in a cool, dry, clean and odor-free, away from sunlight and heat sources.
