Your Drug Problem... EXPOSED

This Is Your Television

Annoying right? Were you even able to finish the whole video? Sadly, your television assaults you with the same kind of annoyances, and you sit idly by... flipping through channel after channel of NOISE. Because that's all it ever really is. NOISE! I will be forever grateful for my mother and father pulling the plug on us kids back in the day. They dared us to go off of TV for a whole year when we were kids. In that year, we imagined, played outside, read books and truly lived. It was such a successful experiment, that my mother and father challenged us children to give up TV completely until after we graduated from high school and they would, in turn, award all 7 of us children $1000 dollars each. We did, and our grades went up, our social lives grew, we joined sports, none of us were obese and we actually lived life to the fullest. I did it with my children as well, and there has NEVER been one negative side effect to taking a TV out of a home.

To quote one of my all time favorite movies, Auntie Mame:

"Life is a banquet.... and most poor suckers are STARVING to death!"
