I used to use old TVs for the patio, I’d forget to cover them in snow and rain, they would get soaked, I’d let them dry a little and they would still work for a couple years! I use a flat screen now with same story..

Not all of them did that, the higher end models were fine. They did make a hiss when turning on but once all the voltages were up they were OK. Remember the tube models made those noises whereas the later solid state (Integrated circuits) did away with a lot of the noise yet had a picture tube and flyback xformer .

Hmmmm. Could make for the start of a good horror movie if they all had a tape or cd inside and the tv said in a note "Play me"

Then they watch the tape and it says something like "You have 24 hours to collect the other 50 tapes or cd's or you will die, but all your other neighbors are given the same instructions! p.s. we have your children and if you don't comply....they die! (cut to children crying or some shit) also, don't go to the police or you forfeit the game and your children die!"


Now I would watch that horror movie! IT would be like a giant cluster fuck of emotions.

A man wearing a TV over his head has been caught dropping old television sets at the homes of nearly 60 Virginia residents in the middle of the night and everyone is confused.

The bizarre gifting spree was captured by several surveillance cameras that show the man with a TV covering his head, walking to the front door of strangers and leaving an old set on their porch.

“He's committed to his trade,” said one lucky giftee of a 13-inch tube-style TV, Jim Brooksbank, to WTVR-TV. “He wants to be known as the TV Santa Claus. I don't know.”

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76440322


Kid thing is overrated. Plus abducting 50 kids is kind of unrealistic.

Here's where I would go with it off the top of my head.

The tv's are delivered to 50 people, but they aren't neighbors. They all have some sort of life ruining secret (pedos, embezzlement, corrupt politicians, rapists, murderers) who are all "well to do" in their rich communities. Each tape gives the names of the other 49 people and explains the rules.

Only one of you get to keep your secret.

There is a colored number at the end of each tape, which will be used to confirm a 50 digit passcode I have created.

No cops. This can be "Our little secret".

After 72 hours, to ensure nobody tries to quit, I will release all gathered evidence con a national level, all except for our lucky winner. ------

Might be kind of a fun project.

Oh by the way I'm a screenwriter, staff writer and producer for a few major studios, although I stay independent because I hate about 98% of the people in this industry.
