    :mad:

    my tv cable went out friday night. talked to 4 techs (each one seemed to indicate that the other didn't know what they were talking about. :facepalm:), got one new cable box and still nothing.

    they won't mosey by until monday sometime. i tell them it's something outside, they insist on coming in. although i'm legal, i don't advertise it so i now have to take all my pot stuff (there's A LOT of it :leaf:), and hide it. like when i was a teen.

    part of me wants to be pulling on a bong when i open the door but that's probably inappropriate.

    i don't know how the people who say they don't watch tv shows on the tv do it. after a day and 1/2 of trying to watch stuff just on the computer, i'm highly FLUStrated.


    you can't channel surf on a computer. not really. :nocheer:

    i'm bored with netflix, watched some nbc and fox shows and it's just not the same as watching on a big ass tv.

    i'm going to go nap now and hopefully forget my woes. :toke:

    Usually get paid shit wages, and when they get good enough to realize how bad they're being screwed, they leave to somewhere else making more money.

    Nothing going on in sports or programming. You aren't missing anything.

    That pisses me off. It's so easy to troubleshoot it when it's completely out. Each tech probably turned it in as repaired. You'd better make sure you are on the schedule. Keep on their ass. I've seen cable techs that didn't even go to a house turn in a call as completed. Or they show you as not home. The tech needs to know you are bitching.

    Got rid of TV years ago when mine broke and my ex and I decided we didn't care to replace it. I really don't miss it. The only thing I like to do as far as that goes is watch "Game of Thrones" on my parents' enormous TV in their living room with all the lights out like I'm in a little movie theater. Otherwise, I just watch things here and there on my laptop or tablet.

    @gridman just got rid of his cable too. Says he doesn't miss it. It will probably be a different story when football comes back.

    :hhh: :nooo:

    I came across this site yesterday.
    200 free Docs.

    http://www.openculture.com/free-documentaries-online

    The Robert Johnson and Ginger Baker ones are good. I watched those yesterday.
    The one about Robert Crumb is on there too if you haven't seen it.
