Discovery Channel: Science or bullshit

I like to channel surf in the evening and I am constantly coming across the Discovery channel and Animal Planet, but I'm getting sick of seeing these "time slot fillers". WTF are these shows? Finding Bigfoot? Really? I tried to watch it for a few minutes and I'm dumbfounded that any one would inject money in to a show like this crap.

I stopped watching

I stopped watching "educational" stations when they stopped being educational. It was back in the 90's as I recall. I miss them.

Fortunately the internet got really huge at about the same time, so I was able to replace them rather seamlessly. Smiling

i miss the days when one

i miss the days when one could turn on discovery with a 90% chance of a nature documentary, or the history channel with a 90% chance of a wwii documentary.  if i see another fucking "mysteries of the bible" about whether or not the ark of the covenant was a fucking radio transmitter, i'll shit a brick.  then throw it through the tv.

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
