Why I Don't own a Television and Rarely Go to Movies

John Piper:
"TV consumes more and more time for those who get used to watching it. You start to feel like it belongs. You wonder how you could get along without it. I am jealous for my evenings. There are so many things in life I want to accomplish. I simply could not do what I do if I watched television. So we have never had a TV in 40 years of marriage (except in Germany, to help learn the language)."

I have to agree with Piper here. With the internet, I don't even really need a T.V. for language study either. My wife and I watch movies that are recommended to us by trusted sources about once a month. This seems to be enough for us.
