The THX guideline for sizing is insane - I'd have to have a 80" 1080p set at a distance of 8 feet. Um, no.

Here's an alternative recommendation, which puts my 46" squarely in the range (viewing...

Saw that NASCAR is only going to let teams work on crashed cars for 5 mins. in the pits - if they exceed that or go to the garage they're out, even for later stages.

That's going to make some of...
