There is a TV in my home yes but i rarely watch it. maybe the occasinal wildlife documentary, at mist once every month.
I wanted to talk about what happened at my friends house. I hadnt seen him in a while so decided to visit. I arrived at around 8pm, on a friday night.
said hi to everyone (7 people in all, 8 including myself) had a few short conversations, then after around five minutes everyone was silent, fixated
by the boring friday night crap being trasmitted into the room.
I felt sick, i rarely watch TV anyway, but on a friday night, with that many people the silence was haunting. ZOMBIE ALERT! I NEED TO GET OUTTA HERE.
i thought. but instead i smoked something to calm myself down and defiantly read my book, hoping things would liven up by the end of the programme.
Turns out that didn't happen, everyone just carried on watching till the early hours. So i slept, then woke up to find that the yet again, the TV had
been swtiched on!! with everyone absorbed into the non-reality of the screen.
So i washed my face and left, disgusted by how technology is increasingly disrupting normal social interactions, and makes everyone forget they are in
a group with OTHER PEOPLE, who should be more entertaining than some stupid television programme. Why must we compete with this horrible invention,
for the attention of those closest to us.
TV in my opinion sucks, your mind. Then your mind sucks, everyone elses joy from them, in the exact same way that television does. Possibly the worst
invention our race has ever created.
