Thread Name: BS: TV is irritating
Subject: RE: BS: TV is irritating
That's interesting, Donuel. I'll check out the new TV's when I get the chance.

I see enough TV in airports, etc, to know that I'm not interested in having one in the house, however.

Tell me, what is it about a TV that draws people's eyes to it, even though they don't wish to watch? To me, it's rather like a page turning in a book.

I didn't mention that another thing I find innately irritating about TV is that often things move much too fast. For example, I was having a beer in the corner bar when a commercial came on that showed the surface of the earth, then something zipping out of it towards me at colossal speed. I found it so disconcerting that I turned my chair away from the screen. Not a good way to get a product sold, is it?

I do agree with everyone that there is plenty of irritating content. I am appalled at the cold-hearted comment about the death of the two babies.
