    Its 2014 and the fucking TV commercials are still 5-10 decibels louder than the TV show.

    Didn't the FCC make a rule on that last year? I haven't heard one of those in a while.

    I thought the rule was the commercials could be as loud as the loudest part of the show? like if there's a big, loud explosion in the show then the commercials can use that volume for their entire ad. it's a stupid rule....they should change it. but who even watches commercials these days anyway?

    That is pretty annoying if you are falling asleep watching TV. You are just about there and BAM, the shoe dini commercial cuts like a knife.

    A lot of TVs have a dynamic volume control.

    If a commercial is really loud and obnoxious, I make sure not to buy that product.

    You fall asleep with that bullshit running in the background? Are you a fucking caveman or something? The fucking saber tooth won't come and devour you if you turn the TV off. :secret:

    :D Funny

    I put it on low if I'm alone. My mind races with a lot of thoughts just laying there in the dark alone. Easier to kind of distract my mind with some inane crap for a few minutes while I pass out.

    I tried that shit on my TV, didn't work.

    The more annoying they make commercials, the harder people will try to avoid them. That's why I use Adblock in Firefox and even block the "acceptable ads". It was so annoying when I'd be listening to something on winamp and surfing the web, then all of a sudden some ad starts blaring out of my speakers at twice the volume of my music. Now the biggest pain in the ass is when websites embed videos that start automatically. Do the people who design websites not surf the internet themselves? Seems like it.

    I sleep to talk radio so the dynamics don't change a lot. Commercial free.

    I hear ya. For Firefox I use Flashblock and NoScript and that eliminates 99% of that crap. NoScript is a little restrictive, but you can tweak the settings or allow scripts for certain sites (always or temporarily).

    2x10pm. It would be nice when I was younger and single, then you can head out to the bars after work. I'm starting to feel my age and the hangovers last longer. Only choices I have are midnight shifts 10x6am or 2x10pm evenings. Need another 5 years before I have enough seniority to get 6am to 2pm.
