StumbleUpon>TV

So today while using StumbleUpon I came across this website that was talking about mesothelioma. I never really knew what it was and always ignored it when I saw the commercials. I read about the mesothelioma treatments and what causes this and was surprised. Asbestos is actually really bad and is really really common in a lot of houses. My friends uncle is a personal injury lawyer based in Dallas and he actually deals with a lot of the cases of the cancer when businesses don't inspect their buildings. But it was really weird that I stumbled on to that page and payed attention to it opposed to the TV commercials.

  2. Yeah, I agree with SilverWolf. I tune out so much in commercials, that barely anything in them registers. As for asbestos, my middle school was still insulated with the stuff. That was probably not so safe, though they removed most of it as they learned how dangerous and are tearing it down next year after 90 years of operation

  10. I don't watch TV at all really, except on demand things like iPlayer and 4OD, I have very few commercials pumped in to me, and I barely remember them.

  12. I Guess you're more involved when browsing web, than just staring at the screen

  13. Commercials and advertisements are growing more and more obsolete because of DVR and just general disinterest
