    So my wife noticed i always set the Volume on the TV to an even number or anything with a 5 in it (10/12/14/15/16/18/20 etc.... 25/26/28 ...)
    My kids told then they do that to, always set the volume of anything to an even number (if numbers are used for volume)

    Do you have that to or not?
    i set a few options in the Poll :)

    To be honest I would I don't even care, but on an unconscious level I know I tend to put it on even number or numbers ending on 5, I know it, I have seen it, it would have been great if some almighty power was always watching me and shared the statistics. (but oh well, google refuses to share it)

    I usually set my TV to around half of half of max. Otherwise it is way too loud and not sounding good exactly.
    Bad TV, it sure can make a lot of noise when you ramp it up.

    My TV doesn't have a numbering system for the volume, so I just set it to whatever I feel the volume should be @ the moment.

    Any random value just so it's loud or quiet enough depending when or how I use the TV (actively watching or background noises).

    I'm boring like that.

    I click mine until it’s at a suitable audible level for the situation.

    Numbers can’t restrain or quantify my aural pleasure.

    I get it to the volume I like by ear, then fine adjust it to a number I like for fun.

    I forgot
    Mines at 0 on the TV in my living room, and 0 in my bedroom ;O;

    But that's cuz I use a sound bar in my living room and a small surround sound system in my bedroom, so volume on the TV is off and the external speakers have no numbers :P

    I do volume up when it's too quiet and volume down when it's too loud
    This thread is one of the dumbest things I ever seen

    What's funny though is that something minute like that is not something the people here care about, but they care enough about this thread to post that they don't care about it lol.
