The money and effort to redo the wall is much greater than most flat tvs.
@I am a horse, the prices are way down
@I am a horse, patching it maybe; but that looks just about free.
@I am a horse, Yeap
@I am a horse, back in the early days of the Internet, this picture here was glorious. TVs were expensive. There were no retoasts. I didn't pretend like I was a meme sage. Life was better. But everything changed when the fire nation attacked.
@I am a horse, it's a pretty old pic
@I am a horse, in addition you could only control the boxed if they are in the same room, so you'd have to go to another room just to change a channel
@I am a horse, I actually did this. With proper measurement, there weren't any cosmetic issues to the wall to fix since the screen stuck out further than the sides and top. Of course, if you ever get rid of the t.v. you'd have an issue. Nothing that a giant entertainment center can't fix HAHA. Totally joking about that last part. But, even then, it wasn't too bad.
@I am a horse, this was actually sort of common before flat screens came out.
I threw 2 of those bad boys off of my 3rd floor balcony when I was in college. The noise was horrendous, but man was that fun.
@Chief Poundserhard, how. In. The. Balls. Did you get 2 of those TVs up to the 3rd floor
@fetus meatus, it was horrible. Took 4 guys to get it up there. They both broke and agreed we weren't going to take them back down so we positioned a dumpster at the bottom of our balcony and did our best to hit the target. We failed on the first one
@Chief Poundserhard, killed a passerby on the first try, didn't ya? No lies now...
@Snarfel Burger, hey, look, ok - but it wasn't my fault. The jack off was walking right next to the dumpster with his music too loud. A relevancy to the story is that I didn't really care much for him anyway, but that's neither here nor there. If you met the guy, you would know why it had to happen.
@fetus meatus, it was probably a real pain... which would be why they took the express elevator down to get them out.
That IS a flat screen.
@theTruth9, I'm pretty sure they worked like a standard CRT tv. Except with a different kind of projector bulb.
Flat screens are like $500 for a 60 inch... 😑
I've seen this more times than I should admit. Now everyone has a huge box or hole under their play panel lcd's
@Poisonwolf, I have a hole under my play panel
Its not stupid if it works
Actually had this when I was a kid, we ended up just putting a door where it was BC it was too much work to patch
Uhh...this was a pretty common thing that rich people did before we had flat screens. *shakes stick* "You damn kids!"
I genuinely think this is a picture taken of my uncles house.
But that is a flat screen TV.
Just how old is this picture? Flat screen TVs don't really cost that much anymore, I've even seen a 32 inch TV at about £200 (near $300)
Cant afford that either
My colleague of the college that I teach at, recently told me that if I want an awesome flatscreen tv, I have the authorization to place the purchase for a 55" tv. Mind you, he says this to me while I am playing MegaMan X on Super Nintendo on my 1080p and 1080i HDMI projector, so why would I trade a truly flatscreen to a tv that sticks out quite a bit?
That's one way to do it... I guess
