"Turn off TV, Turn on Life"
Did you guys know that April 23 to 29 is TV Turnoff Week? I'm too busy with my DVD marathon to watch any TV.
There's this device called TV-B-Gone that anti-TV guerrillas use to remotely turn off TV sets. Say, you're in an eatery and want to at least hear what your companion is saying, but they won't turn off the TV, or you just don't like what's on and they won't change the channel... Press this and within 15 seconds, the thing's off (within one second, if it's a TV made by Sony). You can also use it turn the TV back on.
Some people use it to just have fun in an electronics store.
