Hot Slut Of The Day!

The Pantyhose TV screen!

In honor of the day when “Donald Trump” holds a press conference where “he” pulls his mask off, reveals that “he’s” been Hillary Clinton this whole time and it’s all been one long April Fool’s joke America (I mean, they haven’t been seen in the same place at the same time in the past year), let’s pay tribute to the prank that fooled thousands of dumb Swedish messes in the 1960s!

Before the grandpa from Up ended up on Chris Hansen’s watch list by kidnapping a little Asian boy, he was a technology writer in Sweden. On April 1, 1962, Sweden’s one and only television station, which broadcast only in black and white, announced that their technical expert, Kjell Stensson, was going to show them a process that’d turn everyone’s black and white TV screen into color. They cut to Kjell sitting in front of a TV screen where he got into some technical talk and said that researchers recently discovered that a fine-mesh screen placed in front of a TV would cause the light to bend and make the picture look like it’s in color.

Kjell told viewers that they could easily do it at home. All they had to do was get a pair of nylon pantyhose, cut them open and place them over the screen and BOOM! Instant color TV! via Museum of Hoaxes

Stensson told viewers they could experience the effect at home with the help of some simple, readily accessible materials. Nylon stockings, it turned out, were the perfect fabric to use as a fine-meshed screen. So all viewers had to do, Stensson said, was to cut open a pair of stockings and tape them over the screen of their television set. The image on the television should suddenly appear to be in color.

Stensson cautioned that the viewer would have to be seated at the correct distance from the screen in order to get the full effect. Also, it might be necessary to “move your head very carefully” back and forth, in order to align the color spectrum.

Thousands of Swedes admitted that they fell for the prank. “Hahahaha, dim hös!” (that’s Swedish for “dim hos“), said me who almost ran out to buy as much cookie butter as possible after falling for that stupid Trader Joe’s prank.

That shit was funny back then, but it wouldn’t be funny if it happened today. If some American network told us that we could turn our TV screens into a 3D TV screen by putting cut-open pantyhose over it, that network would have to file for bankruptcy. They’d get a civil suit from angry people who ruined a pair of stockings for a prank and they’d get a major lawsuit from the family of a man who was murdered by his wife after he ruined her favorite pair of pantyhose.
