TV is your doom. Okay... maybe not doom but it's definitly not good for you.

Brian Scott - The older I get the more disdain I have for TV. Read these stats and ask yourself if by watching TV you've edified yourself. Can you remember what happened on your favorite program last week? Did it help you in any way? What did you accomplish by watching TV? What did you gain by watching your favorite program?

I would love to put a diet program together for the avid TV watcher. You too can GAIN 8 hours this week and become a more successful person. Call now! You get my small 5”X7” card with the words “TURN YOUR TV OFF!!” scribbled on it. (Scotch tape not included) But wait! You also get your life back. Now how much would you pay?

Check these stats out.
