This is a problem that's only going to get worse. It's the information age, everybody is famous for fifteen minutes, short attention span nightmare that makes me want to smash my computer over somebody's head.
How many times do I need to hear variations on the same zany traffic stops, people caught fucking somewhere in public, some kid getting his head stuck in a toilet, etc, etc?
Yes, I hear ya. Yes, I know what ya talkin' about.
I stopped watching TV perhaps two years ago...It solely drove me nuts as you said, to the point. Same thing with newspapers floatin' round the lunch room at my working place which s'posed to be the intelligent way to feed yer head...NO, its not doing it for me. I reckon to stick your head in papers during break is, btw, just an excuse to escape in eyes open dreamland for a second...watch your work fellows, nobody's interested in the latest share market updates.
Well, Google news is my source in the morning. It's good summarized AND the main thing: You pick!
Well, I agree also- we cannot escape sometimes...at work (as another example) we have that one radio station- quite acceptable in the afternoon; well...different story from nine to twelve: Alan Jones, the breakfast- show opinionator...means talkin s**t for half a work day, means no music in the morning...now I am getting angry...keep the fight goin'...YES !! perhaps I should start writing letter Anonymous "Dear Mr Jones................(not enough dots)"
