Comment Haven't had a TV in 15 years. (Score 1) 194 194

One of the most healthful and happiest decisions in my life. This is not elitist bragging. One day you realize the purpose of commercial TV (the hint is in the name) is to shove as many ads down your throat as you will tolerate. Any ideals of using the medium for communication or enlightenment get drowned by ad profiteering.

F that noise. Every precious second of my life belongs to me, and any salesman trying to steal even one second can F off and die. I still view the essential stuff through various ad free means. But now I find myself allergic to ads, and break out in anxious fits when stuck in a bar or airport terminal with ads blaring in your ears.
