I haven't really watched TV in years. I'm not totally against watching it, and every now and then I do - like when I'm bored in a hotel room, or something.

My current apartment is furnished and has cable and a TV in the living room and the bedroom. I thought I might get back into the habit, but honestly, since May 1st, when I moved in, I've maybe watched a total of 10 hours - and there are several English-speaking channels,

It just bores me, and yes, I think if you watch more than a couple of hours per day, or even less than that, you are probably getting somewhat brainwashed...

Why would I watch TV when I have books and a computer?
Where's the beer and when do I get paid?

Go outside dammit !! I will be completely 100% free of tv this year and it's something i will not miss.

Yes mate. Something to do with the flicker rate. And perhaps more disturbing is the recent revelation that internet search engines now apparently rewire people's memory. :shock:

Never knew about this, thanks, looking into it now... :rtft:

The flicker rate of a television ( I don't know if this applies to HD) is 30 images per second, the human brain can only process 10 images per second, therefore 2/3rds of all imagery from the TV is sub-conscious, proof of this can be find with the banning of subliminal advertising, since they found using this method was enough of an effect to "increase sales". :?

your facade is falling away,believe it or not,i am not your enemy,but you feel slighted by my responses,

ok sorry if ive offended you,however,i find it very disturbing the trend the earth is heading towards,and i will always speak up when i can to challenge the mainstream views,and the programming thats going along with it,because we have to fight tooth and nail to hold onto our freedoms and our sovereignty,
{and no,i have not watched television for over 3 years now btw]

it may manifest as "climate change" or "police at railway stations" or new taxes,or whatever,but its all the same thing,

i cant stand by

as its stolen from us and our kids future,and rightly so.

Alright look. I'm not offended (it's all part of getting to the facts), and I don't have enemies (that I know of). I2 would change my approach to you if I could go back (You probaly notetist this thread has strayed and lost cred by turning into a sligging match), and re-do. Let's see if we can rise above.

Let me make myself clear though. I don't WANT a carbon tax. But I am prerared to pay.
And on my identity, you suggested I might be 'on the agenda'. My rebut was clear, if you look me up, you can see for youself that I'm not.
'i cant stand by'....Fair nuff. Nothing wrong with being passinate about your beliefs. In fact I appaud that. There are somethins i know to be true. But unless I could back my statements, I would never make public statements (am quite prepared to give my opinion) on such issues. Still my belief stands strong without supporting evidace (as your stance he is) on such topics. So, I see where your line in the sand is (and can relate), but (and no offence ment here) Your opinion is just that. Just like mine.




well said, respect- :flop: im telling the truth, i dont watch it, i have possibly about 5 times this year, once an australian program called "jack irish" and i watched a show called breaking bad, probably amounts to about 15-20 hrs worth in the last 12 mnths, and thats gods truth, its not because i know its a brain washing tool, its mainly because it bores me shitless and id rather be on the net learning about things like electronics, science, history, mythology, etc etc, anyway, thanks for the gracious response,

i tried to be the bigger man and back down, as i hardly think i know everything, if anything, and always open to others views/opinions even if bit stubborn or passionate at times,kind regs frm me.

[and id rather bring folks together than create divisions, theres enuf trouble in the world already] :cheers:
the story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye, until we meet again my friend.
