What's a TV?

Funny, many ZHers have killed their sets. I have not had cable in years. MSM is obsolete...just google it.

I'm watching this and then wondering why.  It's so entirely useless.  These people just fill the silence with their incessant babbling.  It's less than useless.

I am Chumbawamba.

I haven't killed my set yet...gotta watch the Simpsons, but I do not waste time watching idiot media parading about blathering on about nothing. I get far more here than I do from watching the various clownNBC shows.

I have never had cable and won't because there's really nothing of value there, it's only a distraction.

Thought the same thing. No braodband either, so no Net TV either.

But having eyes that "see" is  compensation enough.

Hello ORI,

Nice link. I think if you have not already read them you will find the following books by immanuel Velikovsky very interesting:

Worlds in Collision

Ages in Chaos

Earth in Upheaval

Cheers.

Thanks Drachma. have not read th ebooks but have read all his work that is on-line.

India is a litttle low and slow that way (book-wise).

Look at those titles, tell the whole story eh?

They may be a little low and slow, but they sure have great book prices. I remember paying $35 (including shipping) for all my electrical engineering textbooks from India, as opposed to $400+ here in Canada.

BTW, I'm looking for a good translation of the Mahabhata and Ramayana. Any suggestions on a  good link?

Cheers.

B-but I own one of those USB thingies to watch TV on my computer!

I didn't watch TV in the last two years, though. Only my brother uses it.

Tsunami waves (est @ 6ft) should be reaching Hawaii about now.

That guy is a fucking imperial retard.  He has no concept of the metric system.  1.2m is less than 4ft, not 6ft.

I knew my family was different when I was in the first grade in the 1960's.

I went to a friend's house and discovered they had all the furniture in the house arranged around a big color Cabinet TV so they'd never have to take their eyes off of it. 

My family had a black and white portable TV we kept in a closet unless somebody wanted to use it.

Broomer,

Which one of the USB devices do you use to watch TV on your computer?

I'm from Brazil and the model that I use here wouldn't be suitable for you (Brazil uses the Japanese HDTV system).

Get one from Hauppage and you will be set.

1 Year tv free here. One day I decided that I was tired of watching other people live their lives and decided to get the hell up and live my own...

That was very well put. Things are changing now, and rapidly at that. What worked in the past won't work any longer.

Thanks. It only came as a result of feeling like I was inherently damaged for years since I was dissatisfied with the status quo, despite "winning" the game. Just to illustrate: I was engaged to a stunningly gorgeous, devastatingly intelligent girl who essentially told me to fuck off once I woke up. I just couldn't match up with the Jeeersy Shore, Amerikkkan Idle, So You Think You Can Trance... This quote keeps me going: It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

9 AM EST

The spokesman for the Tsunami warning center thinks 1.2 meters is 6 feet and 2 meters is 8 or 9 feet.

Will someone buy this fool a meter stick and a yard stick and let him see the difference?

Isn't math a required subject for scientists?

Will someone please REPLACE THE TSUNAMI WARNING CENTER SPOKESMAN WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS MATH SKILLS?

Not these days. I'm currently taking a requisite course for my degree. It's called Electricity and Magnetism: a non-calculus approach to the EM phenomenon.

We wouldn't want to muddy the waters with MATH now, would we? After all, the concept of electric potential is so much easier [for the instructor] when you don't have to explain vectors and gradient fields.

Other than a sports event now and then and some PBS cooking shows (Lidia) I have lost interest in tv. Gov paid for my digital box, I have no cable.

Thanks for the photos.  I threw out all TVs some years ago when I got mad at the managed news, the disgusting entertainment and the annoying ads.  Haven't missed it.  Interesting to see how many others on ZH do without TV.  I might have guessed that.

Shit, I haven't had TV since 2000.  Why anyone would invite an inanimate object into their living room to lie to them and try to sell them plastic crap they don't need is simply beyond me.  It's a complete waste, and I have too little time for that.  Everything TV can do, other media and real actual experience do with greater breadth and depth.

The Brits call our news "talking heads".  Few pictures, lots of editorializing, glibness, when a picture comes it is 50% obscured by text, pictures, logos, and of course  sheer ignorance on the part of the staff as to world geography, history or politics.  I hate US news.
