The channel that used to be neat
    #1834718 - 08/20/03 08:26 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Discovery. The channel. What the hell has happened to it in the few recent years? Shark week was aboslutly wretched, this year, to say the very least. And NOW!

Right NOW (as in now) 'they' (the hoard of eternal yodelers) are airing a program about how that princess lady (Dianne, as she is called) perished in a car accident (Or, as they want you to read into it.. a car accident CONSPIRACY) They are having multitudes of experts wasting multitudes of resources to examine every little detail and such. (Which is silly, because they know very few details... which is why they dont know what happend? Wow, a novel idea)

So, to 'prove' their ideas, as such, they decide to do an experiment with REAL cars. The princess was in a Mercedes SL280, which 'may' have hit a ford festiva (why the hell.... in europe?) Well, they decide that replacing the mercedes with a buick regal(esque) will not affect the physics at all. Right. Next, they decide to lower the supposed velocity. Again, no change in the actual physics. And again, they are on a perfectly smooth race track, identical on a molecular level as to what the road is/was like. Everything is exact. Perfect. This will be identical to what actually happened.

What the hell? Do they not understand that a peice of dust being on the road completely changes all the variables invovled? Of course, I know everything.

Please, do correct me if I'm wrong. And please, if anyone else has wittnessed this vile attempt at educational programming, tell me if i am putting my own spin on it (which i know i am.)

Have a nice day


Oh, I remember what this was about, now. Why the hell has the discovery channel become quasi-worthless as of late? You would think higher ratings (from all of their previous (read: wonderful) programs) would help them generate funds to keep improving the quality. Welcome to the world of worlds. If it doesnt make you money, dont do it.


Oh, i have a lot more to rant about, but in that case, I would change subjects randomly and non-sensically. Have a great day.

I concur. Humor is a way of life, and shall (and could never) disapoint. However, education is neat too. They are trying to make me dumb. I feel it may just be to spite me, or they dont care. Both?

Come on, FLCL (Fooly Cooly) is AWESOME! Even if it is only 6 episodes long. That is definitely one of the best shows to watch while tripping, or while not tripping. The animation is great and it is incredibly wacky. The best Shark Week ever was the one that had the sharks 3D. That way pretty cool. Of course, this years episodes of the shark attack and robo shark were kinda cool.

I was just thinking about this the other day. The Discovery channel really has become a piece of shit. It's sad. I usually watch Animal Planet or Comedy Central now.

Sarcasm in italics PLZ.

BTW, animal shows where one animal eats another are just glorified cockfighting. The fights are staged. They don't just wait around in a desert and wait till some animals start fighting. they fins two animals and them make them fight. They feed baby birds to snakes. They herd gazelles into some lions, it's all fake.

Discovery has gone down the shitter. Every now and again something good will come on. I too usually watch Animal Planet or just sit and listen to Tool. Ahh...good times.

Baby_hitler... I don't know what the hell kind of 'animal show' you are watching, but you are way off-topic as to what goes on with discovery and on animal planet!

I'm talking about animal shows where animals do what they do in the wild... eat each other.
