    About every single commercial break on NBC, they play a promotion for the Olympics (in London) and it starts out with about two seconds of the Cure's "London Calling."

    I'm gonna be glued to the TV for the olympics. At some point in the next two weeks, real early in the morning, I'm going to realize that I'm losing sleep so I can watch two third world countries compete in Archery.

    There are two apps you can get for full coverage. You don't have to lose sleep over some events, you can watch them when you want...I'm not an app person but I really love the Olympics.

    The number one reason why white people like not having a TV is so that they can tell you that they don’t have a TV.

    On those lonely nights when white people wish they could be watching American Idol, Lost, or Grey’s Anatomy, they comfort themselves by thinking of how when people talk about the show tomorrow they can say “I didn’t see it, I don’t have a TV. That stuff rots your brain.”

    It is effective in making other white people feel bad, and making themselves feel good about their life and life choices.

    Though these people often fill their time by talking with other friends who don’t watch TV about how they don’t watch TV, looking at leaves, cooking, reading books about left wing politics, and going to concerts/protests/poetry slams.

    Generally this makes them very boring and gives you very little to talk to them about. It’s important that you NEVER suggest they are making a mistake or that there is a value to owning a TV. You should just try to steer the conversation to allow them to talk about how they are better than you.
