I like the comment someone made on another forum about ads. The first ad was about teaching your children they could die from a horrible disease if they touch a soap dispenser with the next one saying it is ok to eat sweepings up off the slaughter house floor if it is coated in a spicy breadcrumb!!

Hi Hermit, you made a good reference to a soap dispenser, what do you think of the hands free one on the market?

1.  You turn on the taps (applying bugs)
2. Get your soap without touching the dispenser! great!
3. Turn off the taps (pick up the bugs again)
4.Then wipe your hands on the towel.

Solution - we all need hands free taps!

It's that Sheila's Wheels one that gets me - and I even use them for MY car insurance!

Some people are very gullible BB and some like to impress through the products they buy . All the fault of advertising .
I don't like the way the women get all the constipation, incontinence, diarrhea etc and the men get the Lynx effect. >:(

I agree that one of the worst things about owning a TV is having to mute the ads - but how can anyone not own one.?

The TV is one of the best forms of media that not only inform you of whats going on throughout the planet but also if you watch the right programs throughout everything.

I cant understand anyone who condemns TV as some form of indoctrination but then appears on a forum on the internet. Whats going on? You dont 'have' to believe everything on the TV the same as your approach to the net.

Media is media - you get from it what you want - you dont have to take all of it.

Surely the meerkats are going to become classic ad's, just like the Smash spacemen are a classic of their  time, they're not all bad. As a matter of principal though I will NOT be ringing 0800 106107 now or any other time !! So they're not all good either.

I don't have TV but I don't condemn them (only the adverts).  I just rarely found time to watch it so it wasn't worth ther license.  We listen to radio.

I can percectly understand why people choose not to have a tV. Most of it is dumbing -down rubbish plus ads, a waste of time. We just choose a few programs we really want to see. C4 news, Masterchef, some other cooking programs and movie dvds.... :&>

We did not know that Bin laden was dead until friends visited us. Although we felt a bit dumb it was great not to addictively watch the news and endless cr-p on TV.
 BUT we got a TV and UK Freesat set up the day the Rugby World Cup Started. ;D :trophy:
 We try and watch it every night now and have neglected the idea to rig up our camera and infra-red lights to watch what goes on in the barn at night. Why bother when we can watch edited highlights on Springwatch. We have given up getting up at dawn to look for otters too - luv the meerkats though !
