Our family hasn't had a Talmudvision in the house for ten years or so now. My kids have never missed it and neither have I or my wife.
I highly recommend others get a life by binning that brainwashing tool.
I think I actually agree with you this time. Only problem is actually doing it, or at least challenging yourself to disconnect it and vow to not plug it in for a 30 day trial. Listen to music or read instead, or do like Billy claims he did.
My dream job for decades was to be hired, both my Wife and I, at the Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Park lodge in Cedar Grove. The have a small store for campers, a snack bar burgers and things/breakfast, and the lodge only has about 20 rooms. You get hired for minimum wage, and the give you a mobile home to live in for the season. I'll never forget the ranger on horseback telling me they don;t even get newspapers, let alone television. He had no idea what was happening in the world, and only got up everyday to the mountians and the wilderness. You are in the mountians totally out of contact from the outside world. I'm sure by now they have cable TV in the lodge, but hopefully they never did that.
