Where good taste, clear and distinct ideas, and graceful modulations tend to be viewed with lowering suspicion.
you are costing yourself $700 a month watching TV. If you instead invested this money and received a return of 8% compounded annually over 45 years until you're 70 years old, you would have more than $3.7 million in your account.

"Economist Juliet Schor estimated that for every hour of TV a person watches each week, he or she will increase his or her annual spending by about $200, according to a 1999 article in the Spokane, Wash., Spokesman-Review."Do you buy that?
I'll buy that for a dollar.When copy gets so enthymemic:At $200 in extra spending for each hour watched, that means that the average person spends an extra $6,300 a year due to TV commercials that they wouldn't have spent if they didn't watch TV.It suggests we've reached a point of massive self-contempt. We'll buy anything, even this logic.
