So is this my chance to participate in selecting what is shown on tv's or something more?


You're not by any chance Mr. Jones, or in competition with another Jones?

I imagine you have the latest everything that everyone wants...

They got you hook line and sinker? For a dollar, ha ha ha!

I apologize.

It used to be something attached to your tv set. I always thought it would be cool when I was a kid to be a Nielsen rating family.

No that's not us. We're the family with no pot and no place to pour it. LOL. But really no we have tv's and a computer obviously. I own a kindle fire tablet. Our car is older than my youngest child and he's almost 19. But it is a jeep so it's totally cool to drive. a reply to: loveguy

If it's because you're a Jeep owner, I should be expecting a call soon!

Do other Jeep owners wave to you as they pass by in the opposing direction, or at intersections? It may just be a wrangler-thing. I'm a #5/caution, course language

Well, now that I thoroughly embarrassed myself, I'll bid a fair day.

I wonder if you can volunteer. They have a web site
Www.arbitronresearch.com and e mail at ratings@arbitron.com . What not contact them?
I also earn $250.00 a month tax free by donating blood plasma twice a week. My husband too. If you can get out and your condition doesn't preclude it. It's easy money and they make life saving medicine from it. Just drink a lot of water. a reply to: TDawg61

Oh i get it...ala Jarred Laughner or Derrick Klebold. Not to worry. I don't own a gun. a reply to: demus



oh, you don't own a gun, didn't know that.

if that is the case you're safe because we all know how hard is to get hold on fire weapon...

(just joking - to be honest I would probably take it as a challenge, just be careful what you sign)

Nothing to sign. No contracts no term commitment. We quit when we want and they pay the shipping on the devices both ways.
And they pay cash. No taxes on the income. a reply to: demus

I would be highly suspect of this to be honest.....my tinfoil hat is twitching as we speak. From what I know about the internet I would be worried that the TV guys are starting to catch on with capturing a certain demographics viewing habbits to better target advertisements at us to manipulate us further into buying junk. This is just speculation on my behalf mind you.

So they are monitoring your metabolic state in response to the tv programs. Don't wear it when you are having sex with your partner while some kid show is on tv. You might be put on a pedophile list.

a reply to: GreyGoo

They've been doing this for decades. It's so that producers can know which shows are popular and which ones are flops. Advertising? They're going to do that anyway. The only place you don't see advertising yet is on the sides of satellites and rockets going into space. It's on the stadium walls and the sides of race cars. On busses and trolleys and trains and taxis. On buildings and billboards. On tv , radio and the internet. Would you rather not see ads for things you're interested in? How would it be if all you ever saw were ads for baby stuff. Carriages and cribs and car seats and diapers and baby food and minivans. Pretty boring. Better they are targeted to your interests since they're going to be there any way. Oh what brand of tin foil was that?

They return the red blood cells so I don't know what you mean about becoming anemic. They also check iron every time I donate. They take my temperature they check my blood pressure they check the water content of my blood. It's very safe and I always have fresh plasma because my body has to replace what I give. Anyway it's not for everyone but do try to contact arbitron and see what they can do for you. reply to: TDawg61
