It's 1982 in Our House

We lost the remote control to our upstairs TV, which doesn't have TiVo, and we don't have cable anyway, so we're watching The O.C. with NO control over the volume, bad antenna reception, and NO ability to fastforward the commercials.

Commercials are really loud when you can't mute or fast forward them.

Wow, cool -- The World Champion St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series that year, too! What a great year.

Hrm, maybe it needs to be, um, 1908 in our house.

That's actually true. Commercials are run approximately 3dB (average not peak) louder because THEY know that YOU are more likely to not be paying direct attention to them whilst running for extra snacks or trying to sneak in a bit of productivity so they like to try and keep your attention focused from the other room. Woe are those who are forced to remain seated in the same room without the remote and bear the onslaught of the hype.
