Sweet! That should be as exciting as watching the corn grow!

Thanks to TV and for the convenience of TV, you can only be one of two kinds of human beings, either a liberal or a conservative.

Speaking as an expreienced scene painter... I have watched paint dry many times, and sometimes it is actually pretty exciting.

Like, say you do a scumble basecoat of two differend values of red. Then, mix up a sodium silicate black glaze to apply over it... hit it with a blow drier on the Hot setting and watch that shit crackle!

Okay, maybe I've just drunk too much paint in my time, but that's an entire afternoon's entertainment for me

We only have 5 terrestrial channels here. It was only three when I was growing up. Cable is pretty new here and very few people watch it. I have never heard of UKTV.

I once watched a sand castle, dry out and crumble, over a period of six hours. It was awesome - but I was really high.
