That's right, June 12th will be the day that the old-style analog TVs will stop working and millions of viewers will be greeted with static. The horror... the horror...
So, how do you think America will respond to not being able to watch Oprah, Montell, Judge Judy, and Dr Phill back-to-back?
-- Apocalypse: People go stark raving mad and start shooting each other and start burning down buildings.
-- Loot and Plunder: People make mass raids on electronic retailers so they can get their TV "fix".
-- Slow Death: People look at the blank screen and lose the will to live. They just stay indoors looking at the static until they starve to death.
-- No Effect: Most people who actually watch TV have already upgraded, so the ones with bank screens won't notice since they already don't watch much TV.
-- Getting Real: People rediscover books, art, literature, exercise, hobbies, and socializing.
As always, there are no wrong answers!
