according to one set of self-proclaimed experts, not having children!
Now - I'm estranged from my own daughters, so I'm hardly one to quibble this point. But my daughters are STILL the joy and consolation of my life, the best reason I can point to for justifying my own existence. The hours I spent with them, rocking them, cuddling them, singing to them, reading with them... how can you compare such wonder and beauty with an extra hour of TELEVISION???
The world is going to hell in a handbasket.
