SSC: I don't have a TV, and when confronted with disbelief have justifipontificated on occasion.

The real subtext of this arrangement is that I spent too much time at work or online to justify the outlay for a TV or the time to watch it. As Kamamer mentions, exposure to a friend's monster TV with DSS produces a crack-like zombie state sometimes.

I had a shiver of recognition recently when an alternative cartoon (This Modern World?) depicted the cartoonist's friends alluding that their lack of a TV made them culturally superior. And now I stumble on this node. . .

God bless eyes opened by a cartoon! And it wasn't even Maus or Safe Area Goradze !
