69 days without television
« on: October 12, 2006, 05:22:45 PM »
Can you imagine going 69 days without television?  It should be easy for the "other" to break the losties.  Just setup a large screen, turn it on and BAM... mesmerized!

So that's how they're going to hypnotize them... I notice it was working for a while...

Jack walked toward the screen and got the middle-aged duuuuuuuuuh look on his face as if to say "I'm watching TV... wow... pretty colors..."

I took my kids to a museum last weekend and my oldest asked "can't we see all this stuff on TV?"...struck me as funny and true...

I have totally gone 69 days without television.  I didn't used to watch it hardly at all until LOST came on.

And, yes, I'm like a zombie when I watch LOST, and I even think some commercials are funny.

hahaha... don't get me wrong, i love the beach... but ya, i would probably miss some tv... and just think, benry's got a crapload of monitors in the observation room - get some satelite cable and that's like nine different tv stations, not including other screens in their community and the pearl station...

My first year of college we didn't have cable in the dorms, so I had no TV for a year. It was beer and brutal battles of Madden and Mario Cart on the Nintendo. Ahh, those were good times.

69 Days without TV? No problem.
69 days without a TV and without a Computer? Major problem.
69 days on a beach with Evangeline Lilly, Yoon-jin Kim? Not a problem.

JBRam, is that how long the break is going to be?

I don't think I'll be able to survive!

There will be a 13 week break, which is 91 days!
