      There's a better chance that in the next 7 years I'd have done something to help the plight of plenty more.

      I really do not watch tv at all so it wouldn't bother me. I would be willing to give up tv for the next seven years, aer you taking a poll? Why do you ask? smile

        This was just a question relating to values from my new book I'm about to release. Hey stop by some time smile

      I would have to know how it was helping them.  If I knew, for a fact, that 2,000 starving children would get fat and healthy due to a trivial sacrifice, of course I would give it up.

    I would do it! Even though it would be tougher without a computer!

    Absolutely.  Most programming on TV today isn't very good anyways compared to the amazing amount of literature in the world!

    Why not starving children everywhere?  Not just in foreign countries.
    And you're right, you should have said computer smile
    TV, it would bother me but I'd do it.

      In America, I don't think we do enough for the starving people we have here.  I would try and give up TV to help but it would be nearly impossible.  Everywhere you go there are TVs and I would have to avoid hanging out at my friends' and relatives' houses as well.

    Computer wise it's not something I would give up. Television, sure, because its outdated and outmoded and lacks much good content.

    TV: Basically have already given it up for the most part, so yeah...  And if I could really help, definitely, yeah--and it's just passive entertainment, for the most part.

    Computer...that's a little different.  That's a tool I make my livelihood on for one thing.  And I think Darkside may be a little on to something.  Would the world be better really if I didn't write--something of a vocation & what I've been doing since I was about 5-6 or something?  Hmmmm.
