    Re: No Television?

    Early man lived in cave watching fire. Then came the television and it was an alternative to watching fire or a sunset without being eaten by a sabertoothed tiger.

    Television is a staple in modern life, giving us news, weather, traffic reports and cheesy entertainment.

    Without it children would have no cartoons, educational channels to feed their hungry minds and adults will have no cheap seats to sports, plays and concerts.

    The loss of tv would mean we would have to go out more and pay for seats at plays, concerts and travel tickets to see other lands without the luxury or comfort of seeing travel shows first in our living rooms. TV offers us to live vicariously through the camera man/woman to experience something first in our living room giving us the opportunity to think about going there (Olympics, Italy, or other destination) without perusing about it first.

    I'd hate to think that the landing of the man on the moon would have been like without television giving us the magic of making people feel that one giant leap of mankind.

    I like cartoons and prefer shows short made for tv dramas... since my attention span is only so long.

    Life without tv would rob us of options, to see whatever, whenever all over the world. It promotes a global community and it's invention has made the world closer. I can't always afford to see the Olympics live, or Live Aid live. TV is also a cultural icon that asks "where's the beef"? "Why does Simon Cowell keep wearing the same shirt" and "Why doesn't Ricky let Lucy in the show?". Daytime tv actors would be out of a job.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. I never really thought about TV like that but, now that you mention it; people do live through TV these days. From what we wear to the different cultures/languages that we are in to and/or study. From what we eat to the items used for personal hygene, TV has some sort of affect on us. I especially agree with what you said about TV giving us some sort of global togetherness or a sense of community. Were it not for TV, I don't think I'd ever be interested in Japanese culture at all. I remember watching Voltron when I was about 4 or 5 years old and that's what set off my love for anime and (later I'd realize) Japanese culture.

    I guess I've been living through my TV for the last twenty years, LOL.
