I'd say a trip to the library would be far more beneficial than a television show.




Unless you want the latest on Brittney & Kevin

As a library worker I'm not about to disagree on this. Turn off that TV kids and come see us!

I desperately wanted her to wear matching socks and shoes. And the idea of eating prunes for breakfast scarred me, a'la the old guy.

You know message boards can also stunt brain growth.

Unfortunately, most of us in here are past the age where our brains are still "growing" so I guess all it can do is accelerate neuron degeneration. Hey, everything else is starting to slide, so why not that too...

Me, too! And Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom...did you ever have that problem where you tried to enthuse to other kids about red dwarf stars or wombat mating rituals, and they just looked at you like you'd announced you have fleas? Probably not, you probably knew better than to bare your eggheadedness.

Wild Kingdom was great! Marlin Perkins was always safe back in the jeep while Jim Fowler had to wrestle the python or catch some creature with a bad temper.



and my eggheadedness preceded me wherever I went

too bad that Republicans want to end PBS because programs like the ones you mention are "liberal."
