If I could spend money every day the way I do when I'm travelling abroad, then I'd have no problem giving up TV!miloblithe said:I love not watching TV. Right now I'm in a kind of high point of watching way more TV than I normally do. Perhaps putting the thing in the closet would be a good idea (not that there's room in the closet).

The trick is to go on long trips where the cost of the plane fare affords a long trip (say six months).
as would i, but i have gone for two years + without TV now, its not a loss at all to me, because i can get my information from the internet. i could go a week with my computer and the internet, and probably will come the summer, but during the school year its impossiblemunkle said:I wonder what the response would be if the question was, "Would you go without your computer/internet for a week?". Obviously work related usage would not count.
I for one would struggle.
True. I did realise the irony of it as I typed the post.Macaddicttt said:So you quit watching TV so you'd have more time to post on MacRumors how you have more time since you stopped watching TV?
