On a beautiful, sunny day, would you rather...
Lie in the grass and read a book
Stay inside and watch excellent TV
It all depends on the definition of "excellent" - our TV sucks in general
Have you ever tried Doctor Who or Sherlock?
Lem does have a point.
Picture only book oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh
Have you seen My Name is Earl?! Brilliant.
Would read the book, then go inside and watch show's on my laptop like i do anyway so... win win for me.
Lem has a point, LEM HAS A POINT! For saying this Lem, is a badly god!
my hobby is reading so WIN
the fuck is a book?
Even if I could watch TV in the sunshine I'd still read the book. A book is what you make it. It actually enriches you by activating your creative imagination in new ways. Most TV is just someone telling you something. Bleh.
It's not that TV can't have value, but most of it, even what most people would call excellent TV, willfully refuses to go beyond the banal. It's really all just repetitions of the same narratives. Not gonna get you anywhere.
Its so rare to find a good day of TV I think its worth it another sunny day will probably come sooner.
Remember when TV was filled of great shows? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
@ Jared What you want to read Franklin the turtle?
(only one I though of)
Have you watched MLP yet?
You can get all sorts of weird wibbly wobbly diseases from being outside, TV is just better in general.
a book takes you on an adventure through your mind and imagination the tv can't emulate that
No book has ever written where the movie wasn't better.
No movie ever made has ever been better than the book
i beg to differ ever seen harry potter and the prisoner of askaban? my favorite book ever the movie sucks!
The exact opposite is true, just because your to much of a derp to comprehend good literature to the point of having to have it be dumbed down so much that you are watching happen, doesn't mean that it is better. While I will agree there is nothing quite like hearing and seeing the characters interact, there also is nothing like imagining the event in your head however you see fit to an extent.
Are you fucking kidding me ?
hunger games movie doesn't explain crap while the book.....was awesome
If you see the movie first then the book - the movie is better.
If you see the book first then the movie - the book is better.
except every movie based on a book ever made
Uh...I chose to watch TV, but not movies...TV series. As long as I have HBO and BBC I should be good...
A movie may provide more visual stimulation but a book let's your imagination run wild. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
There are more books than there are movies. Not to mention... your comment is completely false.
Bullshit, you obviously read crap or haven't read at all.
Brian, either your completely illiterate, or your an idiot, or you only read crap, or you only read picture books. The only movie that I can think of that was better than the book is lord of the rings. And that's cause I saw the movie first before reading the book. Worst mistake ever
That was possibly the most retarded comment I have ever heard... Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, The Da Vinci Code series, Twilight (which one is less horrible),Game of Thrones. There are rare instances where the movie is better than the book. Like The Godfather for instance.
Scott@ what about James Bond?
There are bugs on me! And this book hasn't been very satisfactory :/ Hey look, something Excellent is on the tube.
bugs are awesome. you can really learn stuff from nature.
@Joseph Like how to treat bug bites and to sweat profusely.
I like reading. I hate grass.
Brian is an excellent Troll. Don't indulge him.
I love my books, and who doesn't love being outside?
Only because I hate lying in grass.
Can I stay inside and read a book?
It's uncomfortable laying in the grass. I'd rather read a book in a chair.
it's 50/50 now :D
itd have to be a really good book for me to lay in the grass with all the bugs and dirt.
It really depends on the book
Doctor who, Sherlock and Supernatural 24/7. Movies are on TV too so I could watch those.
The fact that staying inside on a beautiful day is what most people want to do makes me want to watch another video on how to restore your faith in humanity T___T
this sounds more relaxing with fresh air.
I'll open a window
Can I be under a orange tree on a hill that over looks the sea? Reading my favourite series? With a kitten sleeping on my lap?
I hate TV.
First off I'm allergic to grass, seccond I'm deadly paranoid when it comes to the bugs and so living in the grass!
I agree with Woopell
I do this occasionally. It's quite nice. I can always record my tv shows.
I stay inside anyway so :L
I'm actually doing this atm. just did a brake and I'm on my cell phone writting this,
I read books more anyway
I watch enough TV as it is, I need some sun...
i dont want my eyes to turn square so book without the grass because iv got hayfever
To fully enjoy a book, I have to be curled up on the sofa. I'm not a big fan of reading outside.
whats wrong with you people? it's "excellent" in every way. it's guaranteed to make you enjoy yourself; the book is not.
Too bad. Sometimes you gotta dare to do something that doesn't have an enjoyment guarantee.
If its not sherlock, dr who, or food I don't care
I slipped and picked the wrong thing
Grass is comfortable. I'd probably be in the shade though.
It would give time to even out my skin tan
I'm allergic to grass.....
excellent and TV cannot legally be used in a sentence together, therefore I must pick read an excellent novel.
I pick this on accident! I love books
I'm allergic to grass....
we have lost faith in humanity
I remember reading once. -_-
Your comment is bad and you should feel bad
I like rainy days more, so I would get out more on rainy days
About half of the book people are liars.
It's a beautiful, sunny day! Don't be such a zombie.
Sorry, but to me, Sunny days aren't beautiful. I like cloudy days. Those are a good time to lay out and read. It doesn't get too hot and no feeling the sun burning your skin.
Good luck dying from skin cancer and itchy skin due to grass and ant bites just saying
I'm pretty sure the risk of getting skin cancer from lying in the grass is considerably lower than the risk of severe Vitamin-D deficiency from not being outside enough.
58% of you are lying, instead of going outside today and reading, you are on your computer.
I'm on my phone.
The weather is terrible.
I hate the sun, I'd rather stay inside and do anything rather than be out in the sun.
I'm not even gonna read the book, lying in the grass is fine with me
Ants are the enemy. If I get bit, I swell up horribly. No laying in the grass for me. Also, skin cancer. If the choice were to pick between reading and TV, reading would win.
You are not going to get skin cancer but having a little fresh air and a little sun. People lived for hundreds and hundreds of years without TV or " indoors" why can't we today?
Depends on the temp, 70+ and the sun is rather unpleasant!
I do this everyday anyways
Well I like reading, but I am allergic to grass so no thank you.
Record the TV
Tv suck it nerds
