    I just got digital cable and I can't tear myself away from it. 200 channels.....what a marvel of quality entertainment. Why does anybody even bother leaving the house?













    NOT!!!!!!!!








    I did just get digital cable but the only thing I'm amazed at is how much worthless content they can get onto the 200 channels. I never bothered with upgrading and now I know why. The only reason I did it is the cable company called and offered the service, which included upgrading my internets access, at no extra charge.

    I now feel qualified to say that television is pure shit! I think maybe one program in 100 is semi interesting and then you still have to put up with the commercials that are so moronic that it's criminal. I'm not sure it is designed to dumb people down but is definitely catering to the lowest common denominator.

    So actually, T.V. is inspirational. It inspires me to want to leave whatever room its in.

    If it wasn't for my internet access I would cut the cord.

    I thought the same thing and catch myself only using discovery channel, history channel, military channel, military history channel, DIY network and the movie channels... Maybe the XM radio channels too. The outdoor channels and the speed channel rule too.

    It seems like a waste but the kids get a whole channel dedicated to age appropriate programming. I'm on the net more than I watch the TV also.

    Good post, I'm sure we all have thought of this at one time or another.

    I'll stick with grinding......1000 channels would really piss me off when I figured out 990 were worthless.

    There are some decent channels like Discovery, The Military Channel, etc but you still have the commercials. That's what really puts the icing on the turd. When you think about the massive amount of money and resources devoted to advertising and then weigh it's contribution to society it just makes you want to toss a marketing exec off of a tall structure.


    I shall find my peace .....or is it piece...whatever...I shall find it in my shop grinding my fingernails to the quick or browsing the JD on a Sunday afternoon chilling with my online homies.

    Well if you can throw Fox news in there I'll take that package being that now I have every channel offered here and I only watch those. Well except for the travel channel can't say I watch that.

    Are you crazy? No sports? :wes:

    The last time I was glued to the TV was during the Olympics.

    I watched as much as I possibly could, and loved every minute of it.

    Ditto!

    I watch the fucking thing about three hours a week and I usually end up pissed off even then. They don't call it the "Boobe Tube" for nothing! Nothing will turn you into a useless Gube quicker!

    Would like to get the price down though! I also pay for the digital and internet package, shit is expensive!

    MO glad you realized there's no place like the shop! Grind away my good man!

    well since you asked, I find professional sports to be filled with overpaid thugs with a sense of entitlement that I would rather not support

    There is a channel that plays commercial free uncut movies that spits out a winner every few days. They had Unforgiven a few nights ago so I was able to record it on the DVR.


    Some of the Olympics holds my interest but professional sports suck out loud. No interest. Most times I can't even tell you what's in season. I love it that most guys you run into assume you are into it.

    "How 'bout that game last night?"

    my response "There was a game last night?"

    Then they look at you like a dog that heard a funny noise. Or they start going on about that guy that did that thing in the 4th quarter or inning or whatever until they figure out I have no fucking idea what they're talking about. Then there is an uncomfortable silence and we can go about our business. :cheesydevil:
