I waited for the newspaper yesterday for hours. Up here, the Saturday paper is the big giant one with all the extra sections and advertising. I love spending an hour or two sifting through it after my Saturday morning workout. I never did get it, though it wasn't for lack of trying. I lodged my missing paper situation with their automated system. The system informed me that they were aware of the problem and that I could expect my paper at 10:10am. My mistake, I suppose, was in believing in the automated system, as I never did receive the darned thing.
So we went shopping instead. Serge wanted to check out lighting. See, not only do we need chairs for the new dining table, but we need some kind of cool lighting fixture above it. (And I use the word "need" here euphamistically for desire.) We didn't buy one, but we did peruse many thousands at several different stores. We also got sidetracked by all the labor day sales on the flatscreen tvs. (I guess we can stop calling them flatscreens, since the picture tube style is no longer being sold.) Here's what we both want to know: Is the human eye able to detect the difference between Full HD 1080 and Normal HD 720. My guess is that, yes, you could tell if you put your face right up to the screen, but you can't tell if you're sitting several feet away as we tend to do when we watch. What say y'all?
