1 Day - 3 orders - 26 discs - no scratches - priceless

Since there's so many posts sharing the pain and suffering of receiving damaged discs, I thought I'd share today's Amazing event.

Today I received the following in the mail:

The Breakfast Club
Weird Science
Real Genius
Dark Angel: Season 1
Alias: Season 1
Angel: Season 2
Stargate SG-1: Season 4

Consider the amount of trepidation I had opening each and every one of these thinking... what are the odds?... they just can't be good.... but amazingly enough, not a scratch to be found out of 26 discs.

Now I just need to figure out what to watch... damn, decisions... decisions... decisions...

That's horrible advice. Stick with DVD's, you'll live longer.

And DVDs won't care if you watch other DVDs.

And DVDs won't yell at you for leaving the toilet seat up.

DVDs won't mind if you fall asleep right after finishing with them.

You can loan your DVDs to your friends, and you can borrow your friend's DVDs without your DVDs getting jealous.

Your DVDs won't leave you and take half your stuff with you.

Jeez, this could go on forever.

Your DVDs won't slowly seduce you into a life of crime, train you to be a master burglar, and, on the night of your last heist, leave you out to dry, surrounded by an entire SWAT team, weapons drawn, lying face down on the museum's hardwood floor. They won't refuse to take your one phone call, and to top it off, they won't not even show up at the freaking trial where the judge sends you to prison for 15-20 of hard time in the federal pen.

DVDs won't not write once during the whole time, they won't not respond to letters, and when you get out, they won't have run off with who you THOUGHT was your best friend, leaving you cold and alone in this hard, hard world.

Maybe I've said too much.

You don't need gloves to play with your DVD.

Kevin, glad to hear you had such good luck. I've yet to get a scratched disc via online vendor. (knock on wood)

Okay, back to off-topic fun:

DVDs don't run for governor

When you're done with them, you can put DVDs in a trunk in your closet, and neighbors won't call the police about suspicious smells weeks later.

I had my suspicions.


DVDs won't gain 20 pounds in two weeks from eating too much chocolate.

Two DVD players? Instant 3-way. Think about it...

Importing a DVD from another country is much easier than getting a mail order bride.
