Antiques Roadshow Appraises 2008 Flatscreen Television
This is a video of Gizmodo writier Brian Barrett having his 2008 Toshiba flatscreen TV appraised by an Antiques Roadshow expert. Despite being a whopping six years old, expert Gary Piattoni (who is very professional) only appraises the television at around $100 (I'm not sure if that's with or without remote and cables). Will it be worth twice that in 20 years?! No. It will be in a landfill. I actually went to an Antiques Roadshow with my grandma once and tried to get her appraised. Surprisingly, for being 84 she wasn't worth much. Which is why I said I was going to the bathroom and left her there. Grandpa was pissed!
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who has an old CRT television worth so little nobody will even come pick it up for free on Craigslist.
