Mainly because I can't do it myself.
Men aren't supposed to be able to cross their legs so that one knee is over the other in the way that women do.

There's a physical reason for it.

Any man that can do it has unusually small balls.

No, but it's looking increasingly like that's the best answer. Well, that, or he switches to line out, which TBH is probably the more reliable method.

Went out snapping at a nature reserve today, and whilst I was there I thought to myself 'I never see any actual wildlife at these places' aside from the usual cows and sheep in field (though not technically wild I suppose), and birds. Then amazingly as I was on the way back to the car, right on the path in front of me were a couple of hares ****ing with each other.

I've still got my camera hung from my next, still switched on, so up it comes to the eyeball, I press the button to focus and snap when 'CHANGE BATTERY PACK' comes up and camera won't do anything. Turn it off and on again, by which time the said hares have ****ed off....

Wife rings me at work in a panic. She's lost her purse, need to cancel all the cards.
So I go through the palaver and cancel them all.
When I get home I ask where she last had it and from what she said, it must be somewhere in the house.
It took me three minutes to find it.

Everything worked very well, and the speakers were particularly interesting to configure - but there was a significant (c. 5 second) delay between the onscreen picture and the audio channel, which I couldn't address using the TV's built-in sync management tools.
Why is there a delay when using bluetooth but not when wired?
Is it similar to the reason why there is a delay between dab & fm radio?

Adverts showing the BMW i8 Roadster.
Whilst it is a truly magnificent piece of automotive engineering, at from £124,735, how many of the viewing public are they actually appealing to, apart from the ludicrously rich..
It's not even like most of us could save up for it.

Yeah, I'm still a bit stumped by this one. Could be:

1) There's an inherent delay with bluetooth audio, possibly for caching purposes to avoid buffering, but because there's no video reference signal when you're using your phone or a bluetooth speaker for music or whatever, you don't notice it.

The only thing here is that the delay on my mate's TV/speaker setup was at least 4 seconds, and presumably, you'd notice that on a bluetooth phone call. Suppose voice calls could be a lower data rate because it's only a fairly small bandwidth for voice frequencies, and therefore less caching involved, so less noticeable.

2) Any delay between the audio & video signal is noticeable. I've never used a bluetooth soundbar on a TV, but you'd have to presume there's ways of addressing sync issues automatically. Or do you always need to use a sync adjust feature on the TV to delay the video signal a few seconds to compensate for the inherent delay with BT audio? Would seem a bit of a major design flaw with BT enabled soundbars if there's no means to auto-adjust.

Anyway, this is continuing to annoy me, and although I've told him to get some line out cables and be done with it, I will be unable to relax until I have an answer.

Went out to a rather spectacular place called ' Randolph's Leap ' yesterday - it's part of the Findhorn River - big pool etc etc - Jennie and Daniel went for a walk in the woods while I found myself a place in the sun with a book [ Monkey Mike's ' The Bitterest Pill ] - a few people went past , everyone said ' Hello ' - then this older couple came along , I looked up from my book and said ' Hello there , how are you ' type of thing - they just completely blanked me , walking past speaking in this upper class English accent .
I don't know why , but it really annoyed me . Manners cost nothing .
