Thought For The Day: Well, Go Figure - Interactivity and Action Are Better than Sedentary Observation?

...a new study out shows, once again, a pretty strong link between happiness and NOT watching television.
As much as you enjoy the 52in flat panel with the bluray disc operating 1080p quality images, shut the bugger off and go do something outside. Remember, there's no such thing as bad weather, just being poorly prepared for the existing weather. Invariably, the weather always looks worse from the inside looking out the window. They do make all those snazzy technical fabrics for a reason - get outside (oh, and yes, the irony that I'm typing this on a monitor does not escape me).

Lying: Moral Choice in Public and Private Life

A book by Sissela Bok.

Where quicker to learn that adults tell lies for money than from TV?

Well...you could go outside and post. WiFi is everywhere! ;-)

TV is my father. It raised me. It comforts me when I am sick. It has taught me about life and death. And now that analog TV is almost dead, it needs me more than ever. TV... I'll never forsake you!
