When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty. --George Bernard Shaw
... because we live in one of the most exciting cities on the planet, with easy access to dozens of wonderful things to do and places to spend our time, like museums, parks, libraries, aquariums, zoos, cafes, activity centers, art galleries, etc. Why watch some boring old show about Central Park or a famous artist when I can go to Central Park or see the famous artist's work in person?
... because on the rare occasion that DH and I want to watch a movie, we simply fire up the ceiling-mounted digital projector and run it from one of our computers while our baby is sleeping nearby. If he's awake, we just turn him away from the screen.
... because I prefer to read.
... because they're bulky and ugly and have to be the centerpiece in any room, even if it doesn't work with the furniture arrangement possibilities or decor.
... because the flashing graphics, fast editing, and loud obnoxious music and voices and sound effects are headache inducing.
... because if I really like a television show I can just buy it on DVD, without commercials or the risk of getting sucked into watching shows that don't actually interest me.
... because I just don't really like it. It's too much, too fast, and the quality is generally poor.
... because no one lies on their deathbed wishing they'd spent more time watching TV instead of spending quality time interacting with friends and family.
