Our generation, one that has been raised on television, has drawn a lot of lessons from TV over the years that has formed us as people and kept us safe. Important things like, “Say no, then go, then tell.” As well as if you go on the Real World and want to get in a fight it is perfectly okay to fight someone that doesn’t live with you, drive drunk, and participate in other high risk activity just don’t lay your hand on a roommate.
Over the last few months, due to complete sleep deprivation, I have been watching way more television than usual. Here are some of the key lessons that TV has taught me.
Here are some great lessons from “Teen Mom” on MTV:
-That knocking up a 16-year-old girl would probably be a bad move.
-Never have kids because they will just grow up to horribly disappoint you.
-If I do have daughter and she gets pregnant as a teenager I need to kick her out of the house immediately so she doesn’t make me watch her kid all the time while she continually goes out and chases boys. Leading to me kicking the crap out of her. (Where have I heard this before?)
Jersey Shore taught me some valuable lessons at as well:
-If someone is nice that means they must be clean.
-Never fall in love at the Jersey Shore.
-Never go out in a bar or a club with a camera crew following you repeatedly for an entire summer. It can only lead to the following things:
1) Multiple fights
2) Every single girl knowing who you are and whom you take home.
3) It makes it easier for crazy Israeli girls to stalk you.
-If a girl self labels herself as a “sweetheart” she is you an attention starved, trouble-making bitch.
-Don’t put coal and lighter fluid into a gas grill and try to light it.
