I think the short attention span of television is great. As far as I’M concerned, if something is so complicated that you can’t explain it in 10 seconds, then it’s probably not worth knowing anyway. My time is valuable. I can’t go thinking about one subject on end. I’m a busy man. …who’s been sitting here for three hours. … at six thoughts a minute. Calvin and Hobbes sit in front of the TV. Calvin compliments TV. He says that the short attention span has a major advantage: If something is too complicated to explain, it’s not worth knowing anyway. So TV offers him the right slices of information. He’s too busy to comprehend all other information. Hobbes says that Calvin sits in front of the TV for more than 3 hours now. Calvin smiles and says that he’s thinking really fast.
TV sucks. We should spend more time on the internet.
