    ^ "G7"...

    At least now that Russia was punished for being so warmongering, there is no talk of the peaceful nations bombing Syria/etc.

    What I don't understand about that chart is the scale. Surely most TVs are on the 25"-55" range, and the viewing range is rarely beyond 15' for a TV. Who owns a 140" TV, and who watches TV 40' away??

    The relevant range of both sizes and viewing distances is confined to a small corner on the lower left.

    There are two points being made there, and they are contradictory.

    1 - Resolution doesn't matter at far away viewing distances, but nobody really views TV from that far (so resolution differences do matter).

    2 - Resolution differences only begin to matter more at really big TV sizes, which most people don't have (or don't even exist) - so resolution differences don't matter much.

    But there is only one resolution that is not yet established...but is being heavily marketed nevertheless.

    I think I'd prefer it in proportions of a population.

    Australia. (was that the joke?) And Antarctica. And I just noticed that Europe is the only continent not starting with an A (disregarding prefixes like 'north' or 'south').

    Much of Asia also happens to be white-people-land.

    BTW - North and South Americas are connected as well.
