    Re: Movie Rentals

    I download via torrent, or I borrow my friends' DVDs and rip them.

    I have high standards when it comes to movies that I actually like. I won't pay for the majority that are just hollywood fodder.

    Typically I receive a greater experience via VGA/DVI when outputting to our television even with standard definition content. But if it works for you, that's good. Sometimes people just don't know they can get a better connection in there, and that's all I was trying to figure out there.

    Which way is your favorite?
    I "borrow" them or watch movies on Hulu.

    Either is fine, the commercials on Hulu aren't that bad.
    I'd prefer the movies I "borrow" be on Hulu to avoid the wait.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    HD is so impressive compared to a regular DVD quality. I put my HD monitor next to my regular monitor and the difference was jaw dropping.

    Ha, it can be. But there are some films that were just filmed poorly. 28 Days Later comes to mind. He filmed that with a DV camera I think, and the results became apparent right away. Only in the last five minutes did he film in 35 mm.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    So you have a $20K DVD collection? That's nuts. You could do much better things with that money. Even set yourself up for retirement.

    Everybody has their hobbies, and everyone has their own financial situation-perhaps his is in good shape. Perhaps the man has also saved money in some areas that others spend frivolously, like eating out.
