How can you even watch 8 hours of TV a day? I mean, you sleep for 8 hours, work for 8 hours, maybe you commute for two hours -- that doesn't even leave 8 hours. You've gotta be losing sleep and literally doing nothing else to watch that much TV.
unemployed adults, or anyone else who works from home or stays home all day.
I spend a Saturday when I goof off on the computer for six or seven hours, I feel bleh, like I have eaten too much food, but instead have done too much Youtube and forum.
I cannot live in a vacuum, with entertainment being fed to me. I have to be making something, too.
And what the heck is so good about Greek television?
You guys are over reacting. All this graph proves is that their isn't anything good to watch in other countries. Be happy you live in a country with such fine television programs such as: Mad T.V., ESPN 8, Fox News, and what ever the hell is on the USA Network (except Wings).
I cannot live in a vacuum, with entertainment being fed to me. I have to be making something, too.I have a sad feeling that this spark is one of the primary differences between the productive minority and the TV-watching masses.

That reminds of those Turkish unlicensed movies they make, such as Turkish Superman.
As for calling all Americans fat, lazy, TV addicted idiots... I am sorry, but it simply isn't the case. While there is that element - it isn't the entire population. For those that would turn their noses down at their fellow countrymen, I wonder how much they are doing to help combat the ignorance that leads to these behaviors besides derision.
But there is an element of that! I see the stereotype proven all the time! It makes me frustrated because I am an American and I am not that, and neither are many, many of the people in this area. However, I was in the grocery store, looking at the racks of tabloids and watching fat indignant ladies bitch at each other, and I became very depressed for my nation. They exist! I see them on the news! They make me mad, because they make me look bad! They are like these women who conform to sexist stereotypes. I feel like they are making it harder for those of use who try to break out of that image.Don't confuse what I say for Nineless's "You are stupid because you are an American!" BS. However, fatness and poor education/study habits/anti-intellectualism is a real problem here and it makes me mad. It especially ticks me off because these are caused mostly by PEOPLE NOT MAKING AN EFFORT! Basically, I combat the American stereotype by NOT BEING ONE OF THESE PEOPLE!
