In my home, we used to have a television in every room which meant that everyone went to a different room to watch their shows. Two years ago I decided things had to change. In a stroke of madness genius I gave away three of our televisions! We now have one television that is connected to cable in our living room and one in the boys room so that they can play video games in their room.
This has turned out great cause it helps me monitor what they watch and keeps my electric bill down! It also helps us bond. During the day, I watch some shows with the little one but once he goes to bed (8:30 pm), Big K and I get to watch truTV together.
I enjoy The Smoking Gun Presents on Thursdays at 9pm because it amazes me what people would do to earn a few bucks (OK I checked they can earn $12,000+!). I have to admit it makes for great TV, especially because the stories are real! Whoever invented their slogan “The stories are real, the effect is actual” hit it right on the nose! It seems like I cringe, scream, laugh and hit Big K whenever we watch the show! This probably explains why he refuses to sit on the sofa with me and instead sits on the floor a few feet away!
Check out the truTV video below to see some street lugers in action. I have to warn you, it will cause you to gasp, cringe and than talk to the screen as you watch, so watch with caution!
