    Well i have not watched TV in 24 days for more than 15 seconds voluntairly. I have decided that anything important can be found on the raido or in the newspaper. After all a story that CBS would give 40 seconds of time NPR ( national public raido ) would give 8 min. ANd any way i have alot more time on my hands now to do more so important things. Im starting to actually cook and actually keeo my room clean and the scary part is i have no want to watch tv again.

    what is your take on my ANTI TV act is it good or bad. should i continue or should i come back to the vewing box

    I think that some things on the televison are more informative than nessarily searching it up online. Like the debates for the US. But i have not had TV for a good 5 years now, and i dont miss it all that much. ATS also has a lot of info on subliminal messages over the TV, so not letting as much sink in is a good thing if you believe that.

    TV.

    I stop watching TV after 9/11. It woke me up to really look around. To really question and use my head.

    Looking out your windows takes more brain power than staring at the TV - it doesn't take much brain power...

    Look at a painting. "Really" look at something and you'll become aware.

    ID, ATS, and some other sites and my lovely Radio is where I turn to for news. But once in a while I do go to the TV just to have a glimp of what's happening.

    TV put you in a passive mode. There are exception however.

    ---To answer your question, I say you should stay away from the box. You have the Internet, you're not going to miss anything.

    After awhile, look back and compare.
