    Default TV Loudness

    Not that the nimrods in DC have anything better to do, but the House Energy and Commerce Committee approved H.R. 1084, the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act.

    What's it for you ask?

    "shutting up" those annoying TV commercials that blast your ears at a volume far above the normal programming.

    With all of garbage that needs attention they have to toy around with this........

    ......even though the effort is much appreciated.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I'm really glad it was enacted. I was getting carpal tunnel syndrome from hitting the mute button every time a commercial came on. I don't imagine this one took up too much of their valuable and productive time, and filibusters were probably kept to a minimium.

    And what's with all the links popping up in our posts these days? Are we so pathetic that we can't look something up ourselves if we want to "read more about it?"

    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    Like I need to know what TV, Toys, carpal tunnel syndrome and kids are all about. Same with the little gem below when you copy a piece of text rather than quote the whole dang thing.

    As irritable as it is, I much prefer the current nuisances to the full scale, punch you in the nose ads that pre-existed. It doesn't take long before you learn to circumvent the pop-ups.
