It’s A Different World

Someone posted to Digg a link to this story on the BBC about the excuses that people give for being caught without a TV licence. This lead to a huge discussion along the lines of “d00d, they pay for TV over there – that’s teh suck!”.

A few brave souls have tried to explain the BBC’s funding arrangements and how the licence fee is a small price to pay given the generally high quality of BBC programmes and the fact that we get to watch them without adverts. but this has largely fallen on deaf ears. I think my favourite comment was the one that said:

So if british TV has no commercials, when do people go to the bathroom, and get snacks while watching TV?
