Get Your Eyes Tested

Yes, really. Get your eyes tested if you don't already were specs.

I though my vision was fine. I could read road signs well in advance and also looking at newspaper print didn't hurt my eyes. The, in a silly, boozy moment, I tried on my mates glasses [as you do] and the difference was amazing!

So, I went and got my eyes tested. Sure enough, they weren't bad, but could be improved upon. With my new specs my PW7 [and every other telly actually] now looks HiDef.

Don't waste hundreds on scalers, £200 component leads or mains cleaners, just go down to Specs-R-Us, or whatever and you're sorted.


I'm with you 100% on this one, i tried the same for a laugh and was astonished!

Did you find blacks are a lot deeper?

Well done for posting, the difference is dramatic,now try a scaler :)

A few of my favourites...

CINEMA goers. Please have consideration for pirate DVD viewers by
having a p*ss before the film starts.

RAPPERS. Avoid having to say 'know what I'm sayin' all the time by
actually speaking clearly in the first place.

MURDERERS Need to dispose of a body? Simply parcel it up and post it
to yourself via Parcel Farce. You will never see it again.

MEN When listening to your favourite CD, simply turn up the sound to
the volume you desire; then turn it down three notches. This will save
your wife from having to do it.

BANGING two pistachio nutshells together gives the impression that a
very small horse is approaching.

GAMBLERS. For a new gambling opportunity, try sending £50 to yourself
by Parcel Farce.

BLIND PEOPLE Give yourself at least a chance of seeing something by
not wearing heavy dark glasses all the time.

DRIVERS. If a car breaks down or stalls in front of you, beep your
horn and wave your arms frantically. This should help the car start
and send them on their way.

MOTORISTS Avoid getting prosecuted for using your phone whilst driving.
Simply pop your mobile inside a large shell and the police will think
you are listening to the sea.

ALCOHOLICS don't worry where the next drink is coming from. Go to the
pub, where a large selection is available at retail prices.


Nice one Giz,
my all time favourite,

Avoid buying expensive batteries for your doorbell, just check theres no-one there every five minutes!

Another appropriate one...

Jeremy Beadle, When selling DVDs on your TV advert, hold the disks in your bigger hand so people don't think they are laserdiscs, you may get more sales!
