Television is great and all, but it can be a major time waster. It's easier to let TV take you away from the real world for a little while instead of having to do such spirit-killing necessities as paying bills, finishing work, or talking to other human beings.

So it would be great if once in a while, we could turn the TV off and keep it off no matter how hard it is to resist the urge. It would not only be a great way to eliminate a distraction when our favorite shows aren't on, but we also wouldn't have to void the TV's warranty in order to do it.
