    man this shit creeps me out, stayed awake till 6 this morning, rinsing a bitta xbox, some pc & then tv, which is a pisstake only having 1-5 in my room. fuck me teletext freaks me out, with it's creepy music, old skool 80's style pages and shit, especially itv, i was watching it, with some tense piano music, advertising the weeks programs, then all of a sudden some big harry hill, jumps up on the screen, trust me it creeps you out more than it sounds. it's some weird shit man.

    there is many 43 year old single mans out there, with no families living in the ghetto of london, with a dead end co-op job, who can't affords windows 98ings with the 42 megabytings internet service providings. and rely on teletext to keep them afloat as they live through the night as they have nothing to enjoy in the day.
