Re: Human Experiments - Television
As a child I grew up on television, after school I would spend at least 3-5 hours mindlessly watching the box... One day I was watching Television and it cut to an advert-break and I actually forgot which show I was watching one-minute ago? That was a scary day for me, and soon after I decided to QUIT Television altogether.
Can you STOP watching Television and reading the "News" for 30-days?

It's one factor that can help explain the religiosity gap.
