“It is difficult to produce a television documentary that is both incisive and probing, when every twelve minutes one is interrupted by twelve dancing rabbits singing about toilet paper.” – Rod Serling
With time on my hands, I watch TV. Too much of it.
There are some very good shows on National Geographic, Discovery, History, Science channels and a few others. PBS if they keep politics out of it.
Here’s the thing, the caveat, the Achilles heel. We are forced to suffer those @#$%&() COMMERCIALS!!!!!!!!!!!
Back when I watched very little TV, I had no idea growing older came with so many health traps.
Now, any abnormal twitch or sudden alteration in bodily functions warns me of the early stages of dementia, paranoia, rheumatoid arthritis, gum disease, worm infection, heart disease, E.D., and a plethora of other ailments accompanying the aging process.
Worse yet, I’ve developed a fear of driving. The odds are that a big truck will plow into me and burden my family with Millions of Dollars in medical bills and leave me paralyzed, in a hospital bed, for two years.
I will end up broke, homeless, and shunned by society.
Unless I call a lawyer
