TV in Distress

An Oregon man discovered earlier this month that his year-old Toshiba Corporation flat-screen TV was emitting an international distress signal picked up by a satellite, leading a search and rescue operation to his apartment in Corvallis, Oregon, 70 miles south of Portland. (CNN)

Even funnier, the authorities told him he’d face a stiff fine if he kept using that TV which transmitted the signal. Maybe he can sell it to someone with a boat.
