I thought there was a regulation to prevent that at the FCC, yes?? At least there was supposed to be in the US.


This Is why I absolutely love having netflix instead of cable.

Other than looking at interesting stuff through YouTube, I haven't seen a television commercial in probably a decade.

She just don't want you to wear earplugs. Maybe so you should socialise a little bit more with your parents.
