Thread Name: BS: TV is irritating
Subject: RE: BS: TV is irritating
Really? Irritating? I never ever would have thought that. I thought everyone on TV was intelligent and if they didn't know something they looked it up. Kendall, are SURE that Cameroon isn't in East Africa? I thought it was somewhere in South America, and when I looked it up on the Internet I found out I was right.

At the same site I learned about the 47 states in the US, that Poland is part of Switzerland, that bananas are grown around Bethel, Alaska, and that London is the capital of Tajikistan. It all must be true, because it's on the Internet.

TV wouldn't get things wrong. I've known that from childhood and Walt Disney's show on lemmings.

People who write books wouldn't lie, either.

Like Tom Paxton wrote,

"I believe I do
I believe it's true
I believe exactly what they tell me to,
I believe I do
I believe it's true
I'm a simple guy, I believe."
