We ditched our T.V. for a few years. We didn't watch much anyways, as I want my kids to play outside. But, I'm 36 and I grew up on T.V. as well. We
only had 2 or 3 channels, so if there was nothing on, we went outside. But despite conspiracy theories, it has always been called the "idiot
I actually do surveillance for a living now, and watch a wall full of them. (Take that dad!!!) He always said I'd never go anywhere in life if I
just sat in front of the idiot box all day. haha.
But...I think now with SOOO much information at our fingertips, the ability to watch shows online, that aren't bombarded with commercials every 10
minutes that we're just losing interest in "forced" channels. You sit down and channel surf to see if there is anything worth watching.
With the internet (so far) You sit down and watch what YOU want.
What I think is funny, is they are trying to pawn off these new 3d T.V.'s, like it is new tech! Yet you still have to wear the stupid glasses, and
the 3D in the theaters isn't that much better than say...."Jaws 3D" way back when.
"They" must really think we are dumbed down a lot. haha.
Anyways, to get back on track, I feel a lot better, not sitting zombified in front of a T.V. watching nothing.
