It's more like the store/charity is being picky, because non-flatscreens are huge, heavy, and a pain in the ass to keep/store/move, so they don't want to deal with them. There are enough flatscreens getting thrown out that they don't need to take the big chunky ones.

Try craigslist instead to get rid of it.

There is another possibility. It's not that goodwill will only take the best items but perhaps it's deemed dangerous for transportation because of the glass or something else.

Charities don't tend to take electronics as they may be faulty and they don't want the hassle of getting it checked/getting sued if some ****** stuck a c4 in there.

Salvation Army is one of those "charities" that actually do make a pretty big profit.

Their CEO's last reported "total annual compensation" was $126,920; and they are not nearly as helpful as many charities that draw lower profit but actually help people.

We got in a fight, she hit me, and I left. My parents only lived a few blocks away, and I figured, since she couldn't afford the place anyways, it would be a bit of a blow to her if she ended up having to take on all the bills herself. All of her friends abandoned her after what she did, and it ended up ruining her, so I didn't even have to do anything to get my revenge

Well if you have it and are trying to get rid of it you probably have the ability to pay for the inefficiency while someone who is just getting on their feet and need a fridge probably can't afford a high electricity bill.

Energy costs can far outweigh the cost of some appliances. Tube TV's use substantially more energy than flat screens. Same concept with old dishwashers/fridges/freezers/etc.

Usually these types of charities don't give the items to homeless or needy people. They sell them, then put the profits toward what the people they're helping actually need--clothes, job training, food, shelter, etc.

As for Goodwill, specifically: "Goodwill Industries International is not a business that takes in donated items and resells them for a profit. It is a not-for-profit organization that provides job training, employment placement services and other community-based programs for people who have disabilities, lack education or job experience, or face employment challenges. Goodwill raises money for their programs through a chain of thrift stores which also operate as non-profit."

That happens with all HDTV's trying to run game systems that weren't designed to be played on an HDTV. HDTV's use a different kind of video signal that CRT's do, so when you get something like a Gamecube, or even a Wii plugged into it, the conversion of the video signal cause about 5 frames of lag. That's why we still lug around CRT's to competitive tournaments for games like Smash Bros.
