"Measuring a super-slim 38mm at its thinnest point"

Nice use of Estate Agent measuring tactics, by giving the most attractive extreme of dimension only.

My pencil is roughly 0.5mm thick at its thinnest point (I haven't sharpened it today). However, it's over 10 x that thick at the arse end. Not exactly meaningful information when given out of context, is it?

Tell me what it measures at its thinnest point, thickest point, mean and median and you might get my attention.

Extend the plastic outwards that protects the display a bit

And then you can claim it's 5mm thick! (At the thinnest point!)

I don't get it.

Since it's got to sit on top of a TV stand that contains my centre speaker, cable box and DVD recorder, my current LCD is already thinner than I really need it to be. Do people wall-mount that frequently, then?
