    I have explained many times that I saw my first TV when I was in the 3rd grade. We didn't even have electricity before that. And that as soon as our family could afford one, a TV replaced our fireplace. I did watch some TV UP UNTIL i moved out at 15. Since then, I've never owned a TV. Everyone and everywhere else has though, so TV IS KIND OF HARD TO MISS THESE DAYS.

      Relax, Philip, it was just a question.
      In other words, you watch it elsewhere.
      Well and good.

      This is what banasy asked: "I am curious, Philip, and I have wondered this for some time:
      You say you don't own a TV; do you watch things like this on your computer?" banasy didn't ask WHERE you watch it, jeez, lay off the crabapple stew!

    Thanks @saywhat. And now, tell us a little about yourself since they only ask about me. 🙂 Really, I'd like to know more about you myself.

    And really, what's on tv now, nothing as far as I can see but the same old boring programs with laugh tracks, not to mention repulsive violence, superficial HGTV, and S@x. It's much more exciting to read. It really is nothing.

      You're right; tv really has little to offer these days!
      I rarely watch it; too many "reality shows" that are scripted...
      I used to watch TV to *escape* reality...I *live* reality...lol!

    We already knew that I watched it elsewhere, knowing I never owned one. So, no. *you watched it elsewhere* is not the solicited response. As in, if I were to have simply replied "I watch TV elsewhere", my answer would be evasive and not forthcoming...certainly not an answer looked forward to.

      It was a question, nothing more and nothing less, one that saywhat also shared in curiosity.
      And no, I didn't know you watched it elsewhere, otherwise I wouldn't have asked the question.
      It was a harmless question.
      You answered it.

    Don'worry@Philip had to pop out for a while. You are in the company of finest of them there ladies, tip your hat and enjoy the onslaught of wit , humor and some finely honed feminine intellect.
    As for me, as I said earlier just an ordinary American, rather given to the ways of the old, craving for a more livable world for all.
    Good day all.
