    I had to laugh this morning listening to Howard discuss his VISIT to Robin's Apt. to watch her HD 3D TV...you know the AMAZING TV he bought her for her
    60th B'day...

    So both of them couldn't figure out the 3D Glasses have to be TURNED ON! :facepalm:
    Wow....so he pretended he was watching in 3D when he wasn't?? amazing.
    Elderly have a tuff time with new Technology....imagine these two trying to figure out WTF is wrong?

    Anyone catch Robin's comment when Howard said he LOVES that she's sooooooo into watching TV...
    then Robin said ..."well..now I am":eek:
    uh....that's because she's so ill....still recouperating from major surgery in MAY???? Is she in a wheelchair unable to walk???? Is she in "remission"?

    on another note....if u listen to Robin she's sounding more like George Takei...disconnected from the show....her manner of speaking is VERY George Takei....she makes blanket statements that really don't follow what's going on with the show:rolleye: like he does...same articulated voice.
    I think she aged 10years :eek:

    thank you
    peace & love

    that's not Old, that's arrogance and stupidity which can occur at any age.

    So typical Howard, too... and the 3D glasses would have been a hysterical 20 minute bit just 10 years ago.

    Ring.....Ring.....Hello?
    Robin, I'm taking a beating on twitter....That fucking wife of mine won't stay the fuck off it, And AGT ain't helping.....
    Well Howard, What can we do?
    A bit.....You know something that makes me look like a common fella'..Hahahahahahahahahaha..
    Hahahahahahahaha, Oh yes, That ALWAYS works!!! Now, What can we come up with? Hmmmmmmmm....
    Hey I know!! Lets talk about having trouble with something simple where we can gain sympathy from the simpletons that we piss on......
    Whats that noise?
    Oh I'm putting batteries in those glasses that go with the TV you bought me......WAIT!!! Thats it!!!!!
    Hahahahahahahaha!! Good girl!! Those fools will fall for anything!!!! By the way, How the chemo coming along?

    Oh yeh....they SHOULD HAVE called Gary....aka "Techno Beaver" :p
    Imagine these 2 trying to figure this out....at what point do you realize that MAYBE there's an on/off switch in the glasses!!

    And they NEVER read instructions....(like most elderly people)
    I think Howard throws these little hints in about visiting Robin to let the fans KNOW that she's still at home recovering...

    ....but NO BODY IS ALLOWED to talk about it!
    If u hear the replay you'll hear Robin mention that she's watching TV MORE now....because she's probably so sick she can't go out...or return to the studio.
    It's amazing she's been recovering (since May) from a "minor" procedure??? More like major surgery to remove a Huuuuuuge MASS from her stomach and surrounding tissue....(her brains?? :facepalm: )

    that's not nice I know...sorry.

    peace & love

    Well, I'm kind of a technological invalid, but not elderly! I blame it on having a secretary while most new technology was popping up and a complete lack of patience with much else going on right now.

    I'm sticking to this for dear life. :facepalm:

    I've noticed some are afraid to learn. Took me years to get my Grandma to use email, but when she did she learned pretty quick and loved it.

    I remember a rumor where Ronald Reagan called the TV repairman out because his television wouldn't power on.

    Turns out, Reagan was using his remote backwards.

    That was the rumor.

    But seriously, how soon till Howard or Robin call for a "techie" because they have the remote pointed the wrong way?

    My faaavorite Robin moment today was when Howard was discussing an article he read. He said it was by "Mike" something-or-other.

    Robin IMMEDIATELY chimed in with, "Oh yes, Mike is very good.":rolleye:

    A minute later Howard said "Oops. i was just corrected and told the author's name is 'Matt', not 'Mike'...":rofl:

    Don't know how old Grandma is, but I taught myself to photoshop, and build and repair computers. You can learn anything you put your mind to. :c

    If you really think robin doesn't know shit about technology then I suggest you call her on it and send an email to her aol account.

    A 3D TV doesn't seem like the smartest gift to someone who's likely suffering from a chronic illness.

    We'd better add "Howard is trying to kill Robin" to the Winst thread.
