I Can't Watch Shows at *That* Volume!

As I adjust the volume on my TV at night, trying to keep it as low as possible, for sleeping others, while still audible, for me, I find there certain numbers at which I just cannot rest.

Let's say that 30 was just a bit too loud.  I can turn the volume down, but I can't turn it down to 29. At 29, I feel I am teetering on a pyramid supported only by 1 at its basis. A volume of 29 is completely unstable! But at 28, ah, now that's comfortable: I've got 1, 2, 4, 7 and 14 all holding me up. There is a volume with which I can relax on the couch.

Sometimes, it is not easy being me.

  2. Gene, why don't you take a break from watching the TV and read my first ever blog post instead? It is an Economics In One Lesson inspired dissection of Paul Krugmanisms.

  3. (Oops, I meant Economics For Real People inspired, no EIOL...both great books, with similar titles!)
