45. Spend one month without television
Updated November 18, 2009
It’s funny that I can remember having only one or two channels, no remote, and my grandpa having to climb up on the roof to adjust the antenna when the picture got snowy, and now I can sit with a remote in my hand and have access to hundreds of different channels.
Ironically, with all those choices, the chances of there being anything on that I actually want to watch is about the same.
I’ve found a small handful of things I enjoy from time to time and record them on my DVR, but I still rarely watch TV and could easily go a month or more without turning it on. This one shouldn’t be challenging at all, and I wouldn’t be surprised to find, if I really sat and thought about it, that I’d already completed it several times over without really trying.
