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.
