“They” love to sit around and discuss which technology, in this case television equipment & broadcast methods, is better in terms of features, quality and durability, but “they” only seem to watch one type of programming. Sports. Trying to engage “them” in conversation about any TV broadcast I’ve viewed recently containing what I consider some degree of intellectual depth usually brings no response.
Since “they” are the type who stop their meal while in a restaurant to read the latest sports news headlines just received via their cellular phone text messenger, making sure to share with everyone seated around the table, should I really be surprised?
(Do I dare ask if they’ve read any good books lately?)
