Subject: RE: BS: No Telly?
We have 3, and DISH. It's primarily for her (she who must be obeyed) but I find myself watching more and more. News, science, history, very limited satellite music (Sirius)(no folk!). I could live quite well without a television set as even the science is dumbed down (except on the Universtity Channels). In the 60's the pitch for "Pay" TV was that there would be no ads. Rollin on the floor! Now there are very few broadcast services outside of large metro areas and subscriber suckers are paying fairly stiff prices so the advertisers can drum inane, useless, needless products endlessly. Snake oil has made a big comeback as has hair-restorer, aphrodisiacs and pecker stretchers. Would anyone like a used TV set?
