    Angry Commercials on TV

    Is it just me or do commercials seem to be getting dumber and dumber as time goes on?

    I just can't believe they PAY people to write these stupid things.

    We as a society are becoming numb to the affects of commercials. Desensitised to that which a decade ago, might have really impacted on us. That's why commercials now, and many TV shows are becoming increasingly obnoxious, just to grab out attention.

    It's Xtreme!!

    That's what the pause button is for on my DVR.

    Not necessarily advisable
    .
    Try not to do that. Getting into habit of hitting pause may cause one to stop watching altogether and do something else...

    Admit it!

    Yep, I don't watch that much TV anymore, just a few shows here and there.

    good.
    A study reported that your brain shows less activity when you watch TV than when you do ...nothing.
    Actually it doesn't surprise me that much.
    Looking intelligent takes more than looking coool.
