Hacking your TV to make it as bright as the sun.

It's not very well known, but if you take apart your TV and take out a certain microchip that's in there, it removes the brightness limiter and you can make the TV as bright as the sun.  We did this as a practical joke to this guy we know.  He turned on the TV and went blind for 3 days.  It was hilarious.

There are actually two reasons why the manufacturers all use the brightness limiter. First, they are avoiding lawsuits by people who would go blind, and second, without it the TV set would require 220 volts, and you'd have to watch TV next to where the dryer is.

Great, unusual use for a blog! I think this lie is my personal favorite so far.
