Last night we watched some fascinating television. With our limited choice of only 150 or so channels (we have the mid-level Dish Network offering), Karla managed to find one that showed how things are made. We spent almost two hours watching how ratchet wrenches, soda crackers, handmade paper, pole-vaulting poles, artificial Christmas trees, and motorcycle engines are made.
Inspired with the plethora of knowledge potentially available right here in our living room in High Definition, I’m hoping that tonight’s enlightenment will include how shoelaces, toothpicks and Post-It notes are made. If they toss in aircraft carriers, well, that’s a bonus.
