TV Is Broken

This had to be shared. Patrick Rhone over at Minimal Mac tells a story of his young daughter and her interaction with the current state of TV. Here’s an excerpt:

“I turn to that, Beatrix approves, and we watch. Then, a few minutes later, a commercial comes on. The volume difference is jarring to say the least. I would safely guess it is fifty percent louder than the show. I hurriedly reach for the remote and turn it down…

“Why did you turn the movie off, Daddy?”, Beatrix worriedly asks, as if she has done something wrong and is being punished by having her entertainment interrupted. She thinks that’s what I was doing by rushing for the remote.”

    Fear lets you know you’re not prepared. If you view fear in that mode, it becomes a signal to prepare the best you can.
