TV rots the brain. The desire to be entertained overcomes the need to think. That opens the door for others to guide your thinking.<quoted text>
Good news is no news.
I've always wondered why it is that people complain about violence on tv, but that's all they want to watch.
I dumped cable when I lost my job and now I've discovered that the kind of shows I really like-science shows-are all available on the Internet.
I can still watch them on my 52" HD tv through my PS3.
I'm saving over $200 a month and getting better quality programming.
Careful, your head may start hurting as you wean yourself from TV. In time you may even discover that those science shows are also just indoctrination packaged as entertainment.
Get some magnets, rocks, and string. Get some drawing materials and play with geometry.
