help needed with other half

Postby wyliecoyoteuk » Sat Dec 02, 2006 7:28 pm

Hiyall.
I have just setup a HTPC with a widescreen TFT in the living room, and convinced my betterhalf that I need a TFT screen for my study PC for Xmas :-)
However, I now require some convincing arguments as to why I need 2 TFTs ( I have 2 CRTs, but that doesn't seem to cut it for some reason)
Any suggestions welcome!

TFTs attract less dust, hence less housework. Therefore you need to replace both CRTs. :wink:

Remind her that the lack of symmetry will make the universe explode.

Because TFTs are so much easier on the eyes, and having two of them will make it easier to run space-hogging apps and get your work done quickly, you will suffer less loss of vision and be able to see how beautiful she is each and every day of your lives.

Now I think I'm going to be sick.

Because CRTs make you go blind firing all that radiation out into your eyes :shock:

And to convince her even more, say you'd have more space for photo frames of her, the beloved :D

"I now require some convincing arguments as to why I need 2 TFTs"

Yes, but does she know that?

One of the differences between men and women. A woman will pay £5 for a £10 item she doesn't need. A man with pay £10 for a £5 item he does need :)

One for each eye otherwise your vision will deteriorate in one eye and you will not be able to see her beauty anymore and you could not live with that!
I cannot deny anything that I did not say.

Because the reduced energy consumption will allow you to spend more money on being nice to her...?
