Warning for Revel lovers
Samsung makes good TV's. I have a 50' plasma screen that hasn't missed a beat in over 14 and a half years. Still going strong.

Where did he go?
All kidding aside, this is indeed a sad situation for humanity.   
Toilet Paper to Vacuum Tubes
It's  amazing how many people hoarded toilet paper. Some people would hoard up to 5 years worth. When the supply came back to normal, many hoarders tried to return the toilet paper for a refund. Most were told if you hoarded 5 years of toilet pape...
