Hey look fellow memesters: Television has finally realized the power of
*self*propagation*. Using television to sell television.

The most powerful force in the universe, self-replacation, finally used
by television *programming* giants[1]. Be afraid.

I have the sinking feeling that what we are going to see is a vast
polorization of society. The people who watch TV will watch more and
more, and be convinced it's good. The people who don't watch TV will
continue not to watch it, and be more and more convinced it's evil. I
count myself lucky to be amoung the latter group.


[1] Unless I've missed my mark, television *producing* companies have
been using television to sell televisions for years... that's why every
family who watchs TV owns three or four of them...
