Default Do you let ANYONE else Touch your HomeTheater or High-Def Collection??

I'm very anal about my HomeTheater and especially my Collection that I lock my room and even when family/friends are over, I have to be present. [-X

What I don't understand, is their fascination TOUCHING the LCD/Screen...especially my iMac.

I know what you mean. Some people just have to touch everything.

Touching a screen and adding smudges is one thing, but I could care less if people touch my collection. That's too anal.

And I quote Neve Campbell from the all-time classic pot-boiler Wild Things:

"Don't TOUCHHH me!!!"

Default Meh...

I don't care if people touch my collection as long as...

A) They put the movie back where they found it (my DVDs are alphabetized)
B) They have mildly clean hands
C) Aren't trying to steal it
D) Don't chew, slobber, bury or otherwise damage the case

As for my HT gear, it doesn't matter as long as they turn it off when they're done. Of course, that is if they can turn it on in the first place.

Absolutely agree about the LCD's though. Keep those hands off my MBP!

That's funny because no one here want's to touch my HT gear they are all afraid they will screw something up. I have tried to show them but they do not want to even know. I am not sure if it has anything to do with me wearing a hockey mask and carrying a chain saw but it might....

I make everyone wear latex gloves and put on those little foot booties before they enter my room. (Kidding!)

I definitely don't let the kids handle the actual disc.
