TV: Just don’t turn it on.

“You watch television to turn your brain off and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on.”

I’ve gone that far. Now how do I turn off the computer?

I am at a cottage this weekend up north. Last minute free cottage opportunity was handed to me and I jumped.

It’s funny cause it’s a far more upscale cottage than I am used to. And it has everything. Cable. Wireless. Ipod connections. So we found a fun japanese anime show on TV I hadn’t seen in some time (Appleseed) and we were watching it after we arrived late Friday night.

I started timing the programming to commercial ratio.

We averaged 7 minutes of programming to 4 minutes of commercials. I wish I had some more precise numbers and ratios, but we were drinking.

It got insane.

How do people WATCH THESE THINGS in the first place???
