The same argument can apply to jelly beans and steaks.

How can my container of steaks possibly be better than the jelly beans? There is only 4 steaks in this container.... and literally hundreds of jelly beans in that container. The jelly beans are going to win.

Flawed logic everywhere. I'll open 5 studios and endorse Blu-ray.... would that be any less meaningless?

Seriously. Come on, VC-1.... everyone knows you're an avid HD DVD supporter, but don't let yourself live in bubble. Get real, or at least be real to yourself.

Yeah honestly dude, I think even HD DVD fans can realize how completely idiotic this argument is.

Anyone who has ANY common sense at all can realize this.
