I am starting to wonder about how a decision I made many years ago not to watch TV is affecting my view of the world or lack of view on topics of general discussion. I am completely clueless about a huge chunk of culture that often becomes the center of conversation. It is astonishing to me that the average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day. People, four hours is a long time. It is the equivalent of two full months a year. If I were in a coma then I suppose I could watch TV for 2 months non-stop. I don't feel like I have missed out on anything. But lately I often feel left out of the conversation. I chose to continue to be left out and spend this time doing other things. I can't find any reason to change my mind and must just accept the fact that I will continue to live in a vacuum of ignorant bliss. Am I missing something?
