True - my samsung non-smart TV has plenty of bugs - you can't even scroll through OTA channels for very long without it freezing up - something QA should have easily caught. If they can't do basic QA to make sure features work, they're definitely not doing anything to make sure it's secure.

A coat hanger will do just as well between the amp and the speakers since it would take a huge source of interference at that power level to make any difference. For signal/line level cables they just need basic insulation and clean connectors (that aren't falling apart). Also don't run them next to AC lines, even if they're the multi hundred dollar ones

First, do please define "sensible gun regulation".

Well to start with there could more more required background checks - that's extremely popular, but NRA blocked it because it was legislation involving guns.

As for the regulations - guns are dangerous! They were designed to kill! If other legal consumer goods are as dangerous, they are also regulated. Just look at how regulated medicine is.

Avoid strange women and temporary variables.
