    Turn Off Your TV, Turn On Your Life

    What happens when people turn off the TV for three weeks? They turn to their spouses, newspapers and religion.

    At least that's what an educational TV show found in a novel experiment on a small island in South Korea, according to a report in the newspaper Don-A Ilbo on Tuesday. The study concluded that folks who turned off the tube reported having richer lives.

    "My eyes used to be glued to the TV but now I look at my wife, and find her prettier than before," the village leader, Choi Dae-mun, told the newspaper. "I help her put skin pack on her face at nights. Life's become more fun."

    I agree that television is a terrible thing for a lot of people. Every day my parents come home from work, and after dinner, they sit in front of the TV, just watching whatever rubbish happens to be on. It's not even a good movie or thought-provoking documentary, just plain rubbish. Every single day. I don't want to live like that, and want to try and live without a TV when I move out and get married. There are so many better things to do!

    TV is very addictive. My Parents also watched a lot of TV. When they returned from their Job, they would sit in front of the TV and eat. They would watch whatever was on. If nothing interesting was on a Channel, they would just switch Channels until they found something bearable to watch. But now they started to change this Habit a bit and they go out in the Evenings. They spend more time together Talking about Things. I watch TV very rarely. The Discussions and Drama about Politics on TV bores me.
