Haha, Nebraska Furniture Mart.. Picture an Electronics / Home decor store that's about the physical size of 2 home depots put together. (...) Most of what they sell undercuts shitty places like Best Buy to the tune of several hundred dollars.
Hm. Sounds a lot like "The Great Indoors" in Ohio. Cool place.
Checked out their website. Cheapest non-plasma 60" is a Samsung UN60D6000 $2,197. The exact same TV is $1,998 at TigerDirect. (In fairness, NFM does undercut both BestBuy by $2 on the same TV.)
"The Great Indoors"....you mean "The greatly overpriced indoors"? Only comment I can make is that anyone who shops there regularly MUST be in a higher class of income than myself...
I can't recall ever buying anything there, nor Ikea, but I appreciate both places.
I have a severe disability, actually. I have absolutely no sense of what is aesthetically pleasing with regard to home furnishing or decor. For instance, every woman who comes into my apartment seems to object to the fact that I have a stack of tires (mounted on stock 14x6 hollow-spoke wheels), piled up right next to the front door, despite the fact that the tires are clean, neatly arranged, and have full tread.
Thus, I like being able to just walk into a store and be told "Here, this group of objects, arranged together in this way, is aesthetically pleasing. Buy this." The Ikea model, in particular, is quite nice. They provide entire kitchens and living rooms (minus fourth wall) for you to walk around in, sit in, etc., while being told what is and is not aesthetically pleasing. Good meatballs, too.

I had a dream last night that I was friends with michael graves, and we got in a fight with danzig over who was going ot sing a certain song at a reunion tour of sorts. then i kicked it with the kardashians.
Oddly enough, I also had a very weird dream last night, which rarely happens.
I was viewing the final Space Shuttle launch, looking out the window of the upper floor of a tall building. The launch was at night.
Shortly after the shuttle stack cleared the tower, it lost power on all engines (including the SRBs, which is impossible.) It then started to behave like a conventional airplane, entering a stall condition due to too high of an angle-of-attack relative to airspeed. The pilot pitched the nose forward and down (correct stall-recovery procedure for a normal airplane) and it began to gain airspeed and produce lift (impossible) however it didn't have enough altitude, and subsequently crashed into the ground very near the launch site.
The resultant explosion destroyed not only the shuttle stack, but also the two other shuttle assemblies (complete with SRBs and full external tanks) which were inexplicably parked right next to the launch site, lying in a horizontal position on their own fuel tanks.
This explosion propelled a large amount of debris towards the building in which I was standing. One large piece (about the size of a complete satellite) struck the building, however instead of striking at a direct angle, it sort of swiped across the building from right to left (impossible, as the wall of the building was directly facing the launch site) tearing out all of the windows in front of me, but leaving me unharmed.
At this point, I thought to myself "Well, crap. That's a pretty undignified way to end the program."
