National Turn Off TV Week


Monday kicks off National Turn Off TV Week.

Thoughts on National Turn Off TV Week:

I suppose that means you can not watch the news on TV. If either presidential candidate makes a major blunder you won’t be able to hear his or her voice or see the motion of making a facial expression while making that major blunder. You will just have to read about it, which won’t be the same. You will have to make up wild facial expression and hysterical voices as you go – to suit what you think would fit the candidate.

If this No-Watch TV Week really catches on TV survey companies such as The Neilson Ratings can give all their employees off that week.

I wonder if that means no watching TV preaching? What about shut-ins that belong to churches that tape their sermons and send it to the shut-ins? Do they have to let the tape or DVD sit there for a whole week before they watch it?

You could go to a movie house or rent a dvd but remember, you will have to watch it on your computer monitor, not your TV.

Drinking at bars without TVs might increase but decrease with sports bars that seem to have TVs all over the place with some type of sports going on – they might have to close.

The economy might collapse because business might come to a standstill because no one is seeing commercials urging to buy something… buts that is ok, we are sort of in a standstill anyway, because of gas prices.

This may increase attendance at baseball games and other spectator sporting evens such as dog fighting and cock arenas.

It is suppose to show one that not watching TV you can dive into something more meaningfully, for instance you can read a book, exercise, have one-on-one talks with people for a change, and search for hot porn on the Internet.

The news I can do without. It is just the same ol' same ol'. but CSI and Dancing need to be watched. Sorry to disappoint you but can not comply. Hope this does not erase me from your list.

Si,
I have to have my daily dose of LAW & ORDER reruns or I'm not sure what would happen - maybe my whole routine would cave in which means things around me would start falling down. I shiver just thinking about it.

The TV has an off button?

Steve,
It also has a plug in. If it gets too bad I can always rip out the blasted plug.
