1) Enquiring in Richer Sounds about the possibility of a component video cable, you are presented with three options, priced £50, £60 and £95...and the guy behind the counter says disparagingly of the £50 option that it's not a 'real' component video cable.
Seriously. WTF? This guy was utterly humourless. He didn't seem to realise he was seriously suggesting paying almost £100 for three high-grade phono leads. How could he have no perspective? :D
It makes guitar leads seems cheap.
