So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Someone put me out of my misery

I'm PMSing and bitchy *no comments from the peanut gallery about how you can't tell the difference* but I want to gouge out my eardrums.

My back is to the TV, but my husband *God bless him* is watching Modern Marvels. Swear to God they are talking about the history of paint. Now, I like the discussion about the paintings, but they can't leave it at that. They have to go into all the crap about industry and chemistry and crap I don't care about.

Here's the summary: From the Impressionist canvas to the Space Shuttle...from customized hotrods to the brilliant orange hue of the Golden Gate Bridge or tiny electronic devices--paint is one of our most ubiquitous products. And paint adds more than just pigmentation. It's a crucial engineering element, protecting ships from water corrosion, stovetops from heat, and the Stealth Bomber from radar detection. In homes and businesses, it provides a balanced spectrum of light and protects surfaces from wear. In this colorful hour, we discover how this marvel of chemistry and engineering is made, and how it is applied. Come see what's beneath the surface as we reveal one of man's most ingenious methods of defeating the elements and adding spice to life!

I wonder if I could cancel the History Channel and replace it was something like the Oxygen network. That would serve him right. Of course I can never get the remote long enough to turn the channel.

    Your house is our house in reverse. I love the shows about the history of paint, and I have been known to hide the remote under a cushion just so my mister won't be able to mute the commercials when I like the music or the accent of the narrator.

    Thanks for the laugh!

    Oh gees louise ... you folks need an intervention and the creator of the History Channel should be tarred and feathered.
