I can live without television but if you take me away from the internet for more than 24 hours, it's like losing an telepathic ability.

Internet. I didn't watch TV any time I was in Spain. I'm not a TV watcher. Besides, anything you want to see on TV, you can stream from the 'net.

I haven't had a TV in almost two years. I barely watch it anymore.

As others pointed out, since you can get TV on the internet, this doesn't seem hard...

Im slowly contemplating that I dont want either. But what is keeping me in using the internet is the use to get my Real Estate business out there but nothing else. I am slowly seeing the destruction of the mind through Facebook, Twitter and among other things.
With these choices, I felt that the American black man only needed to choose which one to get eaten by; the liberal fox or the conservative wolf because both of them will eat him.

@Curtis: With the new Smart TV's you can now get the internet on your television.

Why you would want this is an open question, though.

Who decides to update thier Facebook profiles while watching the Rams game?

Good point. Technology folks have been talking about convergence for years now. If you have cable for TV and Internet, the difference is mostly artificial already. In another 10 years, this question might no longer have meaning.

I went cold turkey on TV like that for about 15 years from the mid-eighties. Didn't really miss it to tell you the truth.
