TeVil: Television is Evil

I don't watch much television. In fact, I don't even own a television. When I moved out of my parent's house four years ago, I decided that I didn't want a television. My original intent was to spend my spare time practicing guitar since I was trying to learn how to play. Then I got into reading, writing, developing software on my own, recording music, and other things I would have never had the chance to do if I spent most of my spare time watching television. In all of my four years without television, I've never missed having one. Sure, I missed alot of shows but I don't think I really missed much. Below are some of the basic reasons I don't particularly like television. I'll be elaborating on some of these points as I get time to fill them in.

Here are some links that cover more on the evils of television.
