Do appliances obey laws in your home ?

: I was wondering what the"legal" life of a fridge is.

Refridgerators respond only to the laws of physics, not the laws of man. Try as they might the rent guidelines board, city council, and Mayor Guililani have been unable to force refridgerators into obeying laws, especially laws stating when they must die. Those wily, rebellious appliances ...

By the way, the replacement cost of a fridge is ... its actual cost. The landlord saves his receipts and submits them to the relevant city authorities, who duly calculate 1/40th of the cost and increase the rent by that much ... isn't it nice to know that the city uses your tax dollars to pay people to compute how much to increase your rent by ?
