National Turn your TV OFF Week.

This week is National Turn Off Your TV week

It's a chance to stop polluting your mind with liberal crap!

It's a chance to read a book.

It's a chance to walk the dog.

It's a chance to go to the gym.

It's a chance to wrench on your bike.

It's a chance to play with the kids.

And I believe Anna said it best years ago in her signature line "Go out for a ride, the TV will still be there when you get back!"

And no, it doesn't mean you should TIVO everything, or play xbox til the sun rises or spend all day on the internet

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

I think it's time they added recreational use of any media device to this day. I think I speak for many when I say I don't watch TV nearly as much as I surf and play games. Or maybe just change it to No Internet Porn Day. lol I think it would be accomplishing the same thing. lol

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Starting at a new gym today; so I'll be trading a long stressful commute home with a refreshing daily workout followed by a fast ride home a few hours later

I like TV

"It's a chance to read a book.

It's a chance to walk the dog.

It's a chance to go to the gym.

It's a chance to wrench on your bike.

It's a chance to play with the kids."

I do all of that stuff, the last 30 mins of evry night is TV and I wont give it up.

This doesn't count with races, scheduled on Speed over the course of four hours, on the first day of the week off TV, does it?

The first turn is the worst turn, between the left ear and the right one.
