You give some one food for a month and lock them in a box for a month, they'll be dead after a week.
Budgeting is more difficult if you're not locked in a box.
"Normal people" can't watch boxsets, or netflix season drops.
They just sit down turn on the tv and watch what ever is on.
They;re also angry because nothing on tv makes any sense any more because of all the episodes they have missed because TIVO is too expensive.
If you are "here" you are not normal.
Normal people have not see every episode of any series, even M*A*S*H* or Friends.
