Plasma - The Criminal's Favourite TV :-)


Distinguished Member
Ok, quick lighthearted post. During the London riots last year it was repeatedly
said that rioters were walking off with plasma TVs. From the FT:

"Dalston: Plasma TVs top looters’ shopping list"

So criminal's have good taste, then. But, wait a sec... we know how much these
things weigh, we know how big the boxes are. I have to ask, is it plausible they
were running off with these very large, very heavy (> 30 Kg) boxes?

Isn't it much more likely that the media don't know the difference between a
plasma TV and a flat panel LCD TV?

And why have plasma TVs come to be associated with ne'er-do-wells?

It's almost like you have to be a criminal to get one! :D

:laugh: I don't know about owning one, but it's criminal how cheaply they make them.:D

The media haven't got a clue.:rolleyes: mind you having a scooby means I have a certain label already anyway.:laugh:

.... If they we're plasmas I hope they carried them the right way.:eek::devil:
