Wow! This is one of the, if not the, coolest videos I have ever seen. This is what it is like to be an adrenaline junky. This is what we adrenaline junkies live for. “You are never so alive as you are at the moment of your impending death.”
“What some consider crazy, others consider a way of life.”
The first title for this article was “Living Without a TV”. However, it isn’t the TV programming I am living without, I have just changed the way the content is delivered. I am now living without a cable provider; however I can have just as much TV as I had before if that is what I want.
The reasons for the decision:
Over the years I have had several different cable providers though there was a striking resemblance in them all: Their customer service really sucks. For years the cable companies enjoyed a monopoly so their customer service could be nonexistent. Where else were you going to go? They haven’t completely broken that mold yet. They still seem to think they are the only game in town sometimes.
Thank you Dave for all the memories. We will miss you.
I decided to share this story with the world because of the passing of Dave Niehaus, the voice of the Seattle Mariners. It really doesn’t have to do with Dave Niehaus per se. However his passing reminded me of it and it is a nice story. Hope you enjoy it.
In the mid-nineties I worked at a place where as long as I got my work done for the day, I could do whatever I wanted. In other words in the morning I could come in, work a couple of hours, leave and then come back later and finish the day.
