apparently, none of the girls at my high school watched much television

if this study is true, then i should have gotten laid in high school much more often.

i hate studies like this that turn television into a bogeyman that causes our youth to be morally corrupt. first, the study lumps cable and regular television in together. obvious sampling and specification problems. secondly, when is the right time to start shaggin' ass? isn't your twenties kinda late for that kind of thing? are we really that much more emotionally and intellecutally developed at 15 than we were at 12? i think that most of us would agree that your teens is when you should start experimenting with this crap anyways. i for one think that it is a good thing that as a culture we've lost the custom of waiting for marriage to do it.
