    Is tv there to just rott our minds, distract us from the government conspiracies or what? I mean on the internet, there are no real regulations, and yet you learn things on here that you wouldn't ever hear CNN talk about. I think TV is kinda lame, and the views try to mimic a fake plastic life. And yet its enjoyable at times, ever see a TV junkie with nothing to do but eat potato chips? I have seen to many....and their personality seems a bit...dull to me.

    I have no tv feed in my house. There's a box, but it's just there for Playstation and DVDs. I cancelled cable because of the NHL lockout and I think I'm much better off for it.

    No more mind controlling then music or books.

    Weak minds are slaves to media I guess...

    Or maybe I'm too dumb for mind control. [​IMG]

    TV is a sedative designed to help us forget the awful treadmill of work, ad-planted desires and exhaustion. Of the above, TV is the worst because it is the most effective. It is also the most drug-like because the user is the most passive.

    Worthy antidotes are attentive feeling, time with friends and slowness.

    haha I think its funny when people say that about tv :D I mean, you act like tv is the problem, thats why there is an OFF switch..
    Dont blame tv for the worlds problems, or for other people problems..
    PEOPLE are to blame for that, not a freakin entertainment box...

    oops erm TV opens up the world to everyone with a good reception. Far from being a sedative it is a wonderful liberating experiance ... oh how i do love my TV.
