Widescreen TV Curtains   (+5)  [vote for, against]
For that home theatre experience

A pair of red velvet curtains that suction cup to the front of a widescreen television.

For use on those occasions when you are viewing a normal 4:3 aspect ratio image on a 16:9 widescreen. Lets you ignore all that black frame and unused screen space you paid thousands for. Simply remove when you return to viewing a wide aspect picture.

Custom embroidered monograms available at extra cost.

Suction cups?! That hardly invokes the theater experience - the curtains should come with a mahogany casement or something

I want to be able to move them via the remote control (easy technology). I could use them to tease my cats too - to divert their attention from my wife's jigsaw PUZZLE. I want them I want them.

Why not digital curtains? open close curtains added to the remote.

Does it come with the coughing, the ringing mobile phones, the two people behind you discussing the plot..

How did we get so far with so few votes?

You're clearly not familiar with the English political system.

What [MB] said.

Under the first-past-the-post system, a Government can be elected into power with a working parliamentary majority having received no more than 18% of the total votes cast.

Keeps the dust off too.

Rant/Question: Do some people actually prefer to watch a 4:3 image stretched to 16:9 rather than have black bars on the sides? It seems like whenever someone with an HDTV has a non-HD video being played, inevitably it is stretched to fit. Even at the the 1B+ market cap company where I work, for the company meeting they have a 4:3 camera at headquarters recording the CEO talking and display it stretched to a 16:9 screen at the remote site where I work.

Am I just strange for caring about that, or are our IT guys just lazy or incompetent?

Surely most TVs have an option to change the picture format (eg, stretched; cropped top and bottom; black bars etc)?
