I thought I'd start something non political for once, so we can stop bashing each other.
My 22 yr old Sony console tv gave itself up to TV heaven (a big popping noise and went off with this smell of some component being cooked) and being the cheapskate I am decided not to replace it. Actually the stupid thing is so heavy I can't even move it and the recycling centers want $200 to take it away!!!
So before I used to watch TV for about 2-3 hrs when I came home from work, the usual news, sitcom reruns, and sometimes PBS if they had something good (Like about planes or the space program)
I don't know, it's been two months and I don't miss TV at all. I think I realized how lame mainstream television is. Sometimes when I'm traveling for work I'll switch it on and watch the news shows, Fox, MSNBC, etc..But it's filled with the same idiot talking heads just yelling at each other or banners of BREAKING NEWS over Britney or Lindsay's latest antics...The financial shows are even worse, half of these people don't have a basic understanding of the financial markets and seem to make half of this stuff up.
Anyone else walk away from TV?
