Closed Captions or No?

The age old question. You can learn a lot about a person based on whether they use captions when watching television.

YES! Because I can read a book or have a conversation...and still check on the television program. Don't have to talk over the noise or listen to commercials.

These 6-8 minute commercial breaks are becoming the norm.

(Didn't cable television come about so people could pay for programming and NOT have to listen to commercials?)

I do and now I can understand all those British shows.

Yes, when watching British television shows or on the phone.

"When I was young, I was sure of many things; now there are only two things of which I am sure: one is, that I am a miserable sinner; and the other, that Christ is an all-sufficient Saviour. He is well-taught who learns these two lessons." -John Newton


No. I find it amazingly distracting.

That means I'm an old geezer but still have good hearing, I guess.

Yes - on anything other than sporting events (CC blocks part of the view - normally part of the scoreboard). And as mentioned especially on anything British!
