The main issue is that this theoretical "battle of who gets to be on Input 1" A) Doesn't exist and B) isn't a well known problem, as even TV's made in the 70's and 80's normally had at least 2 inputs, so who fucking cares if a particular device is on the first input or not. The input buttons are right next to each other. In fact, most of the time you can just press the A/V button and cycle through them.
The only way this is a tragedy is if the co-founder had a serious problem of not looking both ways before crossing the road. If somehow not looking both ways was a core problem with his very being, a tragic flaw. Otherwise it's just another person who died too early and probably could have done something more with the time he could have lived. I expect more from Patrick Klepek. I guess I was wrong.
@legion_: Actually all my posts have been on topic, because they are all in direct response to things that have been said in this topic. You could have just said 'I should have said bigotry instead of racism' but instead you chose to have this dance. Doesn't bother me.
If by "direct response to things that have been said in this topic", you mean derailing what is clearly the point of the topic by focusing in on a misused word rather than the argument he's making.
Technically, you are off-topic. Just saying. It's like you asking me my opinion on two shirts, and instead of giving my opinion, I tell you that they are technically T-Shirts, because Shirt refers to the long-sleeved variety, and these are clearly short-sleeved. That's not on-topic, that's just me being a dumb-ass.
And on topic (hurr hurr): 400,000 people? Are you for real!? That's amazing, and so very terrifying that so many people are still so horrible with their beliefs.
