Moving into my new apartment earlier this month presented the opportunity to perform a social experiment. I have an old 27” CRT TV from my college days which due to some strange reasons has continued to follow me.
When I moved in I left this TV outside of my apartment for about six days. Half on purpose hoping that someone would take it, and half out of sheer laziness.
No one stole the damn TV. This means one of two things is true, either everyone in my new building is super honest, or even thieves have become snobs and would never be seen with anything less than a shiny flat LCD.
