Huge flat-screen televisions in bars and restaurants.
Perhaps an obvious one, but worth mentioning: we go to these places and pay five times as much for alcohol in part for the atmosphere, which is completely demolished by these panels of plastic sunlight.
Unless it's the big game night, few people look at them, there are merely there to taunt and distract us with their alternate version of reality.
I sat in Old Chicago pizza parlor the other day and counted 12 screens from my vantage point alone! Didn't have to turn around and could the rest.
