  • Perhaps a little more peaceful?
  • does what were doing now count? or are you talking historically over the last 60 years?
  • We'd probably be smarter, be thinner and have all our stuff done.
  • There would be a lot less spuds in this world. We would be way healthier, better read.
  • I have been without television for over 2 months. Life is good!
  • very quiet.
  • In the brink of suicide !!!! Tv stays on 24/7 @ our place
  • I think, life would be a WHOLE lot better. If it were up to me, I honestly would not have one in my house. Oh man, I'm getting excited just thinking about it. I would be so much smarter. lol but less funnier because I would have to get my inspiration from regular people, most of whom are not funny! just think of all the idiot celebrities who would have never been famous. There would be smarter women, and smarter men. and all the investigative journalism which ruined people's lives, wouldn't have had such a serious impact. if there had not been television, there would be no computer, because there would have been no screen! OooOOooooo think about that!
  • Healthier.
  • I don't watch television. There's good stuff on TV, but much of it is a waste of time. Lately I've been learning Gershwin music and Rachmaninoff music on the piano on my free time, and that's a bigger accomplishment than sitting around for hours watching TV.
  • probably a lot better
  • innocent
  • millions of people would have found other jobs instead of working in the television industry.
  • I have not watched TV since 1984. I wouldn't know how to act with television. I don't feel I've missed anything. Life to me seems normal without TV. I'd feel I was wasting time by watching it.
  • Well lets see T.V has only been around since the 1930's and did not become a house hold item until after WW2 what did they do before I think it was war war war, and since then it's been war war war it's not the TV it's the people always was always will be, it's like blaming the gun for the crime and before there were guns there were swords swords swords ... Personally I love entertainment and I do believe violence should be on TV and not in our homes or on our streets ~Nemo~
  • Probably your attention span would increase.
  • I think a generation or more may have been better off without it. Now, we have all those Wii games and plystations, and the internet, I think life would be better off without so much of all these things. Do kids read? I've seen my own granddaughter so zoned out it isn't funny. Life would be better, just my opinion. We lived without it for 200 years. News got around. I think too, that news stations scare the crap out of people on a minute to minute basis. Just stay tuned. I hate it.
  • I haven't had TV in years. My son doesn't yell 'I want!', I never have to worry about what crappy shows are lined up or a monthly bill for it. I think my life is much better off this way. :)
  • I'm assuming we'd spend alot more time talking to eachother.
  • Sure would be reading more and listening to one another more. More family time. Not such a bad idea.
  • Methinks much better proportioned. ;-)
  • Life is GOOD with a TV. I have lived without one before- right now I have one, but only use it to watch DVDs. Television seriously messes with your head. Life is way better without it.
  • We would do a lot more reading. We would do a lot more visiting of friends and relatives. We did that when I was a child before TV. We saw friends and relatives a lot more often than people do now.
  • It would be much different but we would not notice since it had never been invented. What you have never had you don't miss.
  • I'd survive..I lived life without TV for maybe the first 13 years of my life. We listened to the radio and used our imaginations a lot more..we read more books..libraries and bookstores were meaningful parts of our lives. We talked to one another more..shared more..learned more. We would turn to one another for companionship and not sit in a front of a screen..whether TV or Computer..for one-way interaction with space. I'd survive. It was a nice time in my life! :)
  • I work in the construction industry. As you know, construction is at a low point throughout the U.S. I needed to have more money to spend on my car hobby (addiction), so I canned the satellite dish. Saved me about $100 a month. Come football season I'll likely go cable. Meant this as a comment on my first answer.
  • Let me tell you what it was like before televison....we read, we conversed, we walked, we (as children) played OUT, we did chores, we listened to radio, we played board games and cards and charades and ball. Lots of family time. Our parents didn't divorce much....we had curfew and had bedtimes while in school. We got >8 hours sleep at night and woke up refreshed and motivated. We helped our neighbours.... Wasn't all peaches, but we could carry a conversation and look people in the eye while we talked..... at least, that was my experience!
  • We lived without television for years. We actually had the time to sit back and enjoy Mother Nature and each other. We had a lot less fights over channel surfacing. People did not have to take tranquilizers to calm their nerves. We did not have to have a child-control device, because of X-rated movies. We never missed rabbit ears or a satelite dish in the house or outside. And finally, we got to keep our imagination. listening to the radio and wondering what trouble Hopalong Cassidy would come into next. The bottom line........... Without television, maybe i might be able to use my imagination once again.
  • You'd have a chance to meet your family and get to know them.
  • i sure could get a lot more reading done ;) lol! but i'd miss my cable internet!
  • The same..I rarely watch tv :)
  • voting for President would be word of mouth and we know how reliable that is
