That is a tax. If you have service you pay for that too. There is also a radio tax and even if you have one in your car, you get charged. It is like $75 - When you have the TV tax, that is included. AND, if you even have one in the house you pay the tax even if you don't use your TV. We had that situation for several years due to our kids using a TV and DVD player for school. (Abeka video school) Now they do streaming.
Taxes are one reason that people immigrated to the USA!

In CHRIST I can!

Seriously~?!@ A tax for having a TV?!
Heavens that is down right ridiculous. Is it for having an actual TV in the house? or for having TV service? My brother is in Germany right now. I have to email him! LOL

Mary - It was a good idea but guess those of us that are more active don't have TV's. Would you believe they have a TV tax in Germany - to the tune of almost $300 a year! Outrageous!

It's a great idea Mary. Maybe the people needing this idea are watching TV? LOL! emoticon

I always try and do some sort of exercise, like leg raises or calf exercises while I'm brushing my teeth. I take extra steps in putting clothes away while I iron. (I know, who irons anymore right?) I have stairs in my house too and purposely go up and down the stairs quickly, multiple times, to get the heart rate up. These are quick spurts of energy. My body does better with these types of exercises. If I do long bouts of running (which I used to love), it sends my body into stress mode and starts saving every ounce of fat. Obviously the opposite of what my goal was. LOL

Sorry i tried to offer a different option to members of the team... If anyone else has better ideas they can tell me, because we typically have about 10 members or less participating, so i was just trying to encouraging more.

That's a fantastic idea! I've read that it can burn quite a few calories even though it takes just a few minutes. I rarely watch tv unless I'm at the gym and already working out. When I do watch, it's usually a football game and my constant movement during the game could probably constitute exercise! emoticon

Hope everyone works up a massive exercise sweat while they watch their TV though, why only commercials? Go SPARKERS!

Tv is a common habit most of us participate in daily. I would like to issue a new challenge that with each tv show you choose a random exercise from sparks to do reps each commercial break. Choose a new exercise at the start of each show to get a better work out. Post on this thread to boast of your variety, or to gossip about your favorite shows!

This challenge or whatever you wished to call it is withdrawn....
