5 reasons I still use my VCR

1. It is still operational.  I bought this lovely machiene in 1998 to take with me to college.  I used it in college, and then it lay dormat in my parents basement until I got married and moved into my own house.  My parents told me to take it or they were throwing it out.  I took it. 

2.  It is virtually indestructible.  I have two young children and many things have gone into the VCR that shouldn't.  These things include memory playing cards, teddy grahms, part of a pop tart and DVDs.  I have been able to extract all of these objects and the VCR still keeps on going.  The VHS tapes are indestrucible as well.  I don't have to worry about scratches.

3. VHS tapes are really cheap.  I can get them from garage sales for 25 cents. 

4.  My kids can't tell the difference between a VHS tape and a Blu ray disc. 

5.  Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Lilo and Stich, Monsters Inc..................etc
