How do you think cable TV will effect people in the military?

by admin on August 12, 2010

I am in the military. Several years ago, the base installed cable TV in many of the workplaces here on base. Now, I think that people are making serious mishaps in part because their minds are not on their jobs anymore because their watching too much Cable TV and playing to many video games at work.

I can’t say that too much cable tv and video games could cause rollover accidents and other costly mishaps; however, I wouldn’t want to rule out the possiblity that Cable TV and video games are a contribuiting factor.

What do you guys think?

I agree pal. I joined RAF 1977 and we made our own entertainment. Darts, pool, snooker we never had much but we had friends. Now they live in en-suite rooms with showers, internet and cable tv. Best of luck to them but it means the quiet get left behind and a lot end up committing suicide, sometimes accidentally if you get my drift though it is a very small proportion. Our society has gone soft and our armed forces are reflecting this. People did not leave the London Underground and go to their stress counsellor. They had a cup of tea and got on with it. Now, has my pension arrived in the bank yet.

If that’s the case, then your supervisor should cut the power cord. T.V.’s should be left in the barricks unless it’s for training.

it will just show how ignorant, greedy and one sided the media really is!

well when i was serving the army we had tv’s in a few places and it was fine.
we all knew we had to do our job but it was nice to know you can relax once ur done working.

those who did their job b4 will continue doing so in the future… maybe its the buzz around new tv’s in the base…

n you can always put those who neglet thier jobs on trial so theres no fooling around…

I SERVED IN THE ARMY AND NEVER HAD CABLE TV IN OUR WORK AREA… I THINK THAT CABLE TV EFFECTS EVERYBODY.
