    I got this off another board, so I dont take credit for it:
    10.Video Tapes are cheaper - $3.99-$9.99 on average.
    9.If your tape breaks, who cares? Just go get another one. (see reason number 10)
    8.VCR's are cheap. Buy 4 and keep 3 for parts.
    7.VCRs make a great place for the kids to stash their peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches.
    6.The VHS Tape Boxes really stack nicely.
    5.No Snappers!!!
    4.You won't have to upgrade your current stereo system.
    3.VCR players can blink 12:00 for eternity.
    2.Many VCR's rewind themselves when they get to the end. Can a DVD Player do that?
    and the number one reason is.........
    1.If you ever find youself stranded on a deserted island, you can use VCR Tape to lash together a really incredible raft.

    11. VHS hardly ever has those annoying black bars.
    12. When a VCR eats a tape, you get valuable exercises in hand/eye coordination when you try to remove it!
    13. No extras to take up valuable time that could be used drinking a six pack!
    14. VHS is heavier and thus makes a better paddle for smacking an unruly pet/child.

    15. When someone wants to borrow your tape you're elated to let them have it.
    16. It has better packaging than your 8-track collection.

    VHS tape can make incredibly pretty ribbons.
    No possibility of accidentally sticking a DVD in your CD player (of course most adamant VCR owners still think cassettes are man's best friend).

    Gee, I hope this doesn't lower your opinion of me

    Also with the dropouts we get with VHS tape, we're getting a little something extra.

    Tapes are more fun to blow up with M-80's, their's more parts to go flying everywhere!

    VHS tapes make those funny clicking sounds when you turn the spools!
    You're always guaranteed to get a label on a store-bought VHS!
    It doesn't matter how you hold a VHS!

    No annoying menus.
    No annoying commentaries.
    No annoying cast/crew interviews saying how much they love each other.

    When you ask for a movie on tape at Blockbuster you don't have to worry about confusing the clerk.
    "UM D....v....d?, what is that? I Don't think we have those."

    MOVIES ARE A RELIGION.
    SO PRAY TO THE DVD GODS.

    You can verify that VHS tapes have been rewound so you don't get charged a rewind fee when you bring it back to Blockbusters.
    You can fast forward a VHS tape without having to use a VHS machine if you want to.
    VHS tapes hold a door open *much* better than DVD's.
    If you're poor, your kids can use VHS tapes instead of Leggos!

    VHS cassette makes a satisfying crunching noise when you're angry and have to smash it on someones head.
    Tape makes erm good toilet paper, and doesn't block the drains.
