Television is a hypnotic media that ropes you in and traps you. It's addictive and invasive. It stops your thought process and pumps false information into your synapses...you switch into teacher/student mode and let it brainwash you. The Milk of the Poppy can do wonderful things, just as television might sometimes deliver wonderful products. But too much and you're addicted.
I guess my thing is video games. The artwork these days is amazing and it's interactive so I'm not just sitting there drooling while the story plays out, I'm part of the action.
Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
