If you're anything like me, you have found yourself sucked into the time-eating black hole of television, or the internet, on more than one occasion. It's not a very good use of our time, now, is it? Today, while in one of these seemingly never ending holes, I came across the wonderful, wonderful website Unplug the TV. The site is run through a tumblr interface, and boasts more than 2,000 posts. What is the goal? To get you to watch something educational in your day! If you go to the homepage throughout your day, you will be presented an educational video. Four videos are posted each day: my favorite way to browse the site is through the archive (http://unplugthetv.com/archive) because you can find something you're interested in without having to use the kind of annoying interface. So, get watching! Here are 4 of my favorite "education" videos from December on Unplug the TV. If you find yourself feeling "blah" in your TV watching zone, try this website instead!

You've got bud @greggr Enough time wasted on that "idiot Box", ha ha like my science teacher used to say. Thanx and have an awesome day and Be Year! :)
I haven't owned a TV in 20 years, in that time I've learned to speak 8 languages and have read a couple thousand books. I don't miss TV at all. The dumbed down approach to advertising is the critique of your intelligence as a viewer, and it was so offensive, I had all the motivation I needed to stop watching.
@BryanCrappell I'm totally with you on that corporate and highland controlled media we're fed on a daily basis. It's turned us into formidable "mush". Ha, we're camping out now, making an event out of it like consuming puppets. lol...Bet they're laughing all the way to the bank with that one.
