    It woke me up this morning at around 4am with a low buzzing noise, it faded away quickly, I thought nothing of it and went back to sleep.

    little did I know that was his cry for help


    At approximately 6:53am on Thursday the 27th of march, a loud popping noise was heard, followed by the smell of burnt wires and plastic.
    He isn't turning back on.

    I was watching a porno based off of LOST



    yes seriously, I'm the only straight guy that works at the video store, customers complained it didn't work (we can't test it on the TVs in the store [​IMG]) and no one else wanted to test it.
    so ohnoes, I had to watch porn and it killed my TV

    Wait, your TV has a gender? Did you check to see if it had a penis?
