- Italy, Lago Maggiore
Yes ... there is nothing wrong in enjoying TV or internet, the point is that we have to be in control. Now I'm typing on Historum while I'm watching X-Factor Italy. If I'm typing here it means that TV is not monopolizing my attention and that my brain is free to be "multitasking". It happens I simply spend time watching TV, but it is a choice of mine, not an insane lazy habit ...I didn't realise it was that much, but it sounds about right for when I was growing up, and while I worked. I had to have an escape, first from a ghastly school, and later from a stressful job.
Today, with heaps of choice, from free to air, a large DVD collection, a larger collection in MP4 and Netflix, it's closer to 2 hours a day. I get bored. Today my TV watching is based on a Darwinian concept. I call it "survival of the interesting'. A show hasten minutes to capture my interest.
