  1. :D

    today going on the way into town i went behind blockbuster videos to seee what these wastful basards were throwing away this time...

    and i stood speechless at what i saw

    a fuckin TV!

    and under the tv was a DVD player, still in the box...

    after laughing appropriatly i proceded to pull them out from amist the styrofoam peanuts and cardboard.... only to get to the car realizing that theres 2 DVD players in the box!

    took them home, tested everything.. all works fine.... 1 of the DVD players wont let the tray come all the way out.. but that it.. practicially brand new condition TV.....

    TV: 24" mitsubishi... manufactured 1996 (retail: no idea, cant find it on the net, probably not sold anymore, i'd value it at maybe $10)

    DVD player: philips DVD726 (retail $80)

    DVD player: AKAI DVD200BL... DVD MP3 CD+G (retail $70)(although i think i saw it on sale somewhere for about $50)

    there you have it.... $140 worth of electronic equipment for free.... legaly....
