"friend of mine has his laptop in his car and rips the dvd in the parking lot of the rental shop and returns the disc right after ripping".
LOL. How can you go back to the store 12 minutes after renting a DVD and say “thanks” with a straight face? What if it’s a slow day and his last two customers were the SAME GUY. I can just see the expression on his face. Too friggin’ funny.
I made the mistake of buying 650 movies on DVD. They cost me $12,000. I’m not going to make that mistake again. I’ll buy a Blu-ray ROM drive ($150) and an NMT ($260) and throw a 1TB WD green drive in it ($150) and I’m all set.
