TV can be very educational. If I hadn't watched TV, I'd never have known that:
--There will always be a parking spot directly in front of any building you want to visit.
--If you are alone & surrounded by a group of ninjas intent on taking you down with martial arts, they will patiently wait their turn & attack you one at a time.
--It takes too long for lab tests to be completed, unless you are at NCIS.
--Cuts & contusions heal in a few minutes. Broken bones may take an hour.
--Streets are wet & shiny at night even if it hasn't rained.
--Doctors must wear stethoscopes at all times so people will know they are doctors.
--Cars can easily make 20 to 30 foot jumps just by using mounds of dirt or cheap wooden planks. When they land, the car sustains no damage at all.
--Foreign speakers (including alien beings) speak English when they are alone.
--If you need a particular celebrity for a school show or prom, they will be in your town at exactly the right time.
--If you are in Paris, you will always have a view of the Eiffel Tower.
--If you need to see a news story on TV, it will be starting at the exact moment you turn the set on.
--You & 5 or 6 of your friends will always find an empty table in the center of a coffee shop, even during high traffic hours.
--If you're a good guy, you will never run out of ammunition.
--Groceries come in a plain brown paper bag & are required to have crusty bread & leafy green vegetables sticking out.
--In a high speed chase, traffic is spaced so that the bad guy & the police can weave in & out.
I used to watch a lot of TV. Now about the only show I watch with any regularity is "Jeopardy!". Did you know that if you record it & fast forward through the commercials & the interviews, the show is only about 15 minutes long? Some funnies about it:
