"Late to the party?"
"Misinformed?" There are so many studies debunking the global warming myth, try reading! There is far too much money for governments to make for it to be in the mainstream media but it's real. Remember where you heard it first.
My furnas, central air, fridge, dishwasher, washer-dryer, TV..., are all of the highest energy star rating available, they run and consume all the time. If that makes me not one of the "smart" persons here, then I'm OK with that. My subwoofer runs maybe 8 hours a week, maybe. The consumption charge from that is so minute it likely wouldn't be any more than $0.25 on my bill.
You want to spend hours of time and energy trying to figure out how to have your sub turned OFF when not in use, or spend who knows how much on a special power bar which would likely take years to recoup the cost of in energy savings, so who's the smart one?
Watched the Avengers last week, finally another 7.1 movie. Lots of real good low end stuff to shake the house, all encompassing sound with amazing FX, worth another watch or two!
