Television ? Is that something like the wireless, or mebbe some new-fangled kind of gramophone?
Seriously though, my TV only gets used for watching videos and DVDs. One great thing about the 'Net is that you can not only find news quickly, you can equally quickly check the authenticity/veracity of the stories. And I mean 'stories' - objective, factual reporting went out the window decades ago, and even the BBC is no longer a reliable organ of record.
Don't know what brought that on, but you can't beat a good rant, first thing on a Sunday morning ;D
'Propliner' really means 'Proper Airliner with big rumbly radials'
