You are the most logic challenged person that I have encountered in decades. You remind me of this former classmate of mine who could not grasp that a pound of rocks weighed the same as a pound of feathers.
Well, last time I provided evidence it got no response at all, so why would I play along with your games? You know it to be true, so does Donster.

Anyway, Iím off to scare the neighbourhood, I will return.

That is . Akin to some speaker makers claim that lightweight diaphragms sound better than heavier ones, guess they forgot that old F = MA. Stand a F16 on its end beside a Saturn V and the big, heavy Saturn will beat it to outer space every time.

Proving one's claim is not a "game", but lying about having provided that proof sure is one. Lying is exactly what you did here today.

Actually, you never provided "evidence" of a previous post even in that earlier incident to which you are referring; another forum member, Penguin, vouched for you as he confirmed that your earlier post existed. You never linked to it despite repeated requests.

The content of that post proved nothing, either, other than its existence, and you received many replies. You were ridiculed soundly for it as you so richly deserved.

You do not know what someone else does, or does not, know; you probably do not even know your own addled mind. I know that you post crazy batshit predictions in wholesale quantity. I have no recollection as to when you first made each looney one of them and that is what was requested: a link to your original post that contained the predictions being discussed today. When a prediction was made is very much relevant to the discussion.

You spend more time and energy not answering the questions put to you than you ever do answering them. "Duck and Cover" is your most favorite game of all.

It was funny in hindsight, but it was exasperating at the time. Everyone in my class tried so hard to explain this, but to no avail. She kept insisting that rocks weigh more than feathers and that was final. The concepts of volume and density were entirely alien to her.

Not VUDU!
I don't use digital often, but when I do, its Vudu. I redeem the codes to at least have a backup if discs are stolen or damaged.
They also have 4K rentals for pretty good prices. They are also one of the only providers where you can watch Disney 4K after redeeming a code.
I know digital doesn't get a lot of good rep on this forum, but Vudu is one of the good guys. Customer service takes a while to get help, but they always respond to me and have been helpful. Never had any cases of movies missing or changed. The UI is also easier to navigate for me than any other service.

And they pay me $2 to watch bad movies!

Yeah, wish I did better at school. Two years away from paying off my mortgage and Owning my own home, 900 plus disc collection, HT to be proud of and a nice few treats per week.

Not aware of any cinemas offering that option, so the question is without merit.

There are as many paths to success as there are definitions for it.

Here's why we can't have nice things on any format:

https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread...6#post17007576

Read the OP's post; it is a huge list of movies (116 titles) that he wants people to give him for free in the form of digital codes. "Or at least buy" he says! Buying the movies that he wants is the LAST resort. He couldn't even post his mooching thread in the digital forums.

People like this, who want everything to be given to them for free, exacerbate the decline in movie purchases.

It would never occur to me to go online and just ask strangers to give me what I want. The sense of entitlement displayed here is astounding!

Edit: His thread was deleted. Maybe he'll have better luck trick or treating tonight?

True, but your suggestion that Iím some sort of thick clown doesnít tie with what I have achieved in my personal life.

There has to be some level of intelligence going on to make things pay for oneself.

Itís not that at all. You guys KNOW that I have said that on many occasions in a thread that has hundreds of pages. So, itís become a game for some reason.
My line about EST having no legs and EST being dead in the water has almost become my catchphrase.

Itís like saying to you, I donít believe you are fond of gifs, please post evidence.

This is a daft road to go down and Iím not playing, I have homework to do.

Chicken Little has a catchphrase, too. Does nothing to lend any validity to it, though.

Wasn't Daft Road named after you?

Homework to do? More like therapy to attend.
