PostSubject: Advertising    Mon Apr 04, 2016 1:20 pm

Just watching episodes of "Adam Ruins Everything" online, the show is interrupted three times by 3:30 worth of commercials -- and they can't be fast forwarded. Once I figured this out it was fairly easy to go do something else (read email, post to forums) for a couple minutes.

Makes me wonder.

What would I like to be free for the cost of sitting through advertising?

Movies. Theaters make their money on popcorn sales anyway. If the movie had bathroom breaks I could live with it.

Books. A few pages of ads would easy to bypass. Magazines do it?

Gasoline. If I had to listen to an ad while I filled up that'd be okay.

Not okay: groceries. Restaurants. Toll roads. Clothing.

Anything I pay for should be free of advertising. That includes cable or satellite tv.

I can only remember one time that I saw something in an ad that interested me. It was a small car that I thought was really cool, so I went down and bought one. And I had the sound muted on the tv.
