Yeah.  Last commercial I saw was at RC's house on December 20th.  Before that, it had been a couple years.  I can't believe how omnipresent they are.

At the top of that list, you need to put commercials.  Commercials are the most evil, insipid and mentally polluting things man has ever created.

case in point... THIS FUCKING COMMERCIAL was on CNN during a Lou Dobbs break last night.  My jaw nearly hit the floor.  I just can't believe they're allowed to get away with crap like this.

If you told me that was a joke commercial from a Zucker Brothers movie, I'd believe you.

I wish I could, man.  But... it's 100% serious.  Believe it or not, those currency commercials are better than they used to be.  The government started requiring them to tell people it was Liberian currency... before, you didn't have a clue.  They were selling them like they'd been made at a US mint.

The worst was the commemorative 9/11 half-dollar.... the WTC was gold leafed and, get this, you could actually tilt them up and stand them up straight off the quarter like a fucking pop-up book.

Yeah, that Liberian thing is what threw me.  Never heard that before.  Amazing.

My landlady offered me a TV that she took after she evicted some poor family and I told I'd just sell it.  Guess I shouldn't have said that, because then she never brought it by.

I certainly understand disdain for television... what you have to realize is that it's not the TV set's fault that television sucks.  Also, TV's can be used for a lot more than just watching television.  I should send you my old one.

And an Xbox and a copy of Fallout.

I'll preprogram some forum posts because nobody will see me for six months.
