    If Frazz doesn’t have a tv, then he missed the showing of the Ironman last week.

    Resistance is futile, Frazz!

    The northern lights are better than fire to look at, but fire also warms you up.

    The John Prine bandwagon has left the station, Jef.

    My TV died.

    I’d get another, but I’d have to kill it, too.

    The Northern Lights aren’t technological, unlike fire and a bug zapper.

    And is Jef trying to not make sense?

    Frazz thinks highly of himself. Or is it Jef?

    Do people actually spend any time watching bug zappers? Guess some are fascinated with any tragic moment, no matter how small.

    Paying to watch TV and still be inundated with moronic commercials is insanity.

    I threw my TV out over a decade ago, best decision I’ve made. It is kinda fun however to watch people’s reaction when I tell them I don’t own a TV. “Whaaa? How. . . What do you do???”

    I definitely don’t own a television. An elderly tower computer that gets turned onless than half a dozen times a year, and the iPad I’m typing on even as I, er, type…want to say speak! Er, want to TYPE speak!

    The only thing I miss about television is the newest Doctor Who. That’s certainly not enough reason to shell out thousands of dollars a year to watch!

    Sometimes I watch old Saturday morning cartoons on YouTube. Like Fractured Fairy Tales. ;-)

    Actually, if you’re in a situation where your survival is at stake (such as a caveman), the last thing you want to do at night is look into a campfire. If you need to look into the darkness to see / react to something, you eyes will need several seconds to adjust if you’ve been staring into the fire. And those few seconds can be the difference between living and dying.

    Thank God for the Dukes of Hazzard, that’s what I say. Because that’s what I was watching when I thought to calculate how much of my life I was spending in front of a TV, and did a little cost/benefit introspection, and dropped TV entirely at that moment. I’ll never know how that episode turned out, but I know how my life has since. And I’ve done a lot that I wouldn’t have otherwise. A LOT. And quite notably, I can assure you that you wouldn’t be reading Frazz right now, or ever, if not for that decision.

    It’s since become complicated, as Frazz points out. For all my non-TV virtue, I now spend much more time paying attention to glowing screens than I ever did. A good deal of that is me working, but I’m sure I’m still wasting more time now, 30 seconds or so at a time, than I wasted back then 30 minutes at a time. Maybe some repeat introspection is in order. Maybe a similar break is. It would be difficult, wouldn’t it? Wouldn’t it? Wouldn’t … it …? It was kind of hard giving up TV back then, but only for a couple of weeks, and then it wasn’t difficult at all. And I never really missed it.

    And right now I miss the Northern Lights awfully badly.

    It is of course important to Frazz that he has never owned a television set, but it is even more important to him that everyone know that he has never owned one. It’s probably on his business card.
