The same powers used for the aforementioned subliminal messaging and thought control.

What part of NZ are you in? I'm from just north of Wellington but I've been in Australia for over seven years.

Yes, but I just thought I'd ask you here. Would you like a tie?

Axver where the hell is my VCR remote? I've genuinely lost it. Correction, my daughter lost it. I know it is not IN the VCR as I have played a tape since it's diappearance.

Ok, no here's a real question. We got this one at our piss-up trivia night last Thursday. On the commercials, LG is stated to mean Life's Good. Without googling, what does it really stand for?

You might not have lived in Aus long enough to remember the answer to this though

God I'm bored. A replay (apparently) of Lost will be on soon..

Where is it? The answer's obvious: Elsewhere.

There is a possibility it has run away to join the little piece that slides over the battery section of my VCR remote. It's been missing a while. You never know where these remotes can get to.

LG = Let's Google-it.

Well, I have to pretend I know the answer, don't I?

I've never known what it stands for, but I never believed it was Life's Good. No-one names their company that.

Not as much as actively participating in LiveJournal communities has.

LG = Lucky Goldstar.

Goldstar were a cheap as shit company, back in their day. Quality was about as trustworthy as Kambrook.

So, that's really added to the thread huh?

Yes, it has actually. I didn't know that. Goldstar were absolute crap. Up there with Palasonic and PhiLiPPps etc.

PS Akai are now crap. They used to be good when I was little but now they are crap. I found that out the hard way.

LG as a joint force, is actually a very good company. I remember the days when mum wouldn't ever buy Goldstar or Kambrook. I did get an old Akai tv for my bday when I turned 21, it's still going strong!

But yeah, unless it's Sony or something it's probably cheap and ready to fall apart.

LG seem to be putting out some very good stuff now - my mother's new flatscreen TV is an LG and it's fantastic. And when did Akai turn crap? My VCR is about 6-7 years old now and it's going strong. I just wish it would stop causing wear on my Under A Blood Red Sky tape - OK, so that's my fault for playing it too much.

And ha, I just realised my computer monitor is an LG. You'd think I would have noticed beforehand.

I bought an AKAI vcr 4 and a half years ago. It lasted about 6 months and died. I spoke to the guy in the store and he said AKAI were crap now.

Maybe its just AKAI vcrs? Except yours is okay so who knows. I don't have a VCR anymore. I gave up after that experience.
