A few years ago, my little brother replaced his old picture tube TV with one of them fancy new flat screen TVs. He took the old TV out to his front yard near the curb and hung a “Works! Free to good home” sign on it. That TV sat there for 3 days and he got tired of looking at it, so he took the free sign off and replaced it with a “For Sale, $50” sign.
It was ‘stolen’ within 15 minutes.
