Are the computer/laptop and television a large waste of summertime in the U.S.? Is media wasteful?
Yes, I think that TV's and computers are a huge waste of time for people in the US. I know as a child that I would very rarely watch all that much TV as a kid during the summer, it's a waste of a nice day. Unless it's too hot or if it's raining I think that people should be outside enjoying the weather.
I decided when I moved into my first apartment that I would try an experiment to see if I could survive without a TV. I did it for over a year and had no complaints. I now have basic cable simply because "The Office" is awesome. I probably spend an unneccessary amount of time on my laptop but I try to spend a least a couple hours outside everyday. At the very least, go outside and read a book or play with your dogs. Facebook friends are not real friends and cyber space is not reality.
I absolutely agree w/ both of your answeres, and think that media is distracting (at times) and can take a sunnyday and place it on the weather channel for a second opinion! Still love the Seinfeld reruns though...
