If you consider that cute, you have strange tastes, haha! ^_^ Inaccurate? Ehhhh, yeah a little... just pointing out that in addition to watching some godawful, dumb, opposite-of-educational, stupid shit on TV, Americans also eat way too much sodium- and fat-filled, shitty, opposite-of-healthy, cholesterol-laden fast food, and I couldn't resist the urge to throw them both under the bus simultaneously with my scathing disdain for both groups. ^_^ Please accept this much better rant than I could ever hope to give regarding the subject. ^_^ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLRQvK2-iqQ

Even if educational programming flees broadcast television in droves, you said it yourself -- Honey Poo Poo who's on pay cable beat the Presidential Debate which was on a broadcast station... people already have cable tv, and they're still choosing to watch this brain-rotting, bad behavior-glorifying, trite dribble over more educational choices. *shakes head sadly for humanity* I honestly don't have faith that people would watch educational programming even if they played the same show on the bottom 15 channels at the same time. People would just continue eating their ketchup-packet spa-ghetto-y and jumbo sodas and quintuple burgers and turn on their DVR'd honey poo poo episodes or the jersey whore or whatever the fuck garbage people are idolizing nowadays... Those who want to watch more educational programming will seek it regardless of where it's located; Netflix has a large selection of educational entertainment, including a lifetime supply of conflicting Mayan documentaries (of which I've watched too many to care anymore because I think the whole world-ending on 12-21-12 is utter horseshit. ^_^) /rant

While I agree that more readily available educational programming isn't a bad thing, I think you're more optimistic regarding viewership than me. ^_^

I'm going to watch the movie "2012" and laugh my ass off. No matter if the earth really does end or not. I've been saving this movie for this day, to be honest.

There's another mayan calendar that continues pass 2012



It's also possible that being conquered by the spanish did something

Everyday the world ends. For we can't go back.

Not being able to go back is a true end.

I think that if they couldn't predict their own end, then how can they predict our end?

I've been saving that movie for the 21st of December as well. Not only that, my room-mate and I have decided to hold an "End of the World" party. She wanted a pool full of money to swim in, I want a DDR machine. I think we'll find a compromise somewhere along those lines. If the world does end, we'll be going out in style - surrounded by friends and drinking all through the night. I am actually looking forward to it, we've been planning it for 2 years now haha.

Don't bother, educational television shows and McDonalds don't mix well, therefore Americans won't be interested.


haha Cute but utterly and totally inaccurate.

My main problem is with educational programming being moved to premium channels that cost more money thus keeping the majority of Americans in the dark. I doubt they would still be around if everyone in the US just didn't care about it.

Granted, Honey Boo Boo getting ratings over the Presidential Debate was pretty fucking disappointing.


The really disappointing part is that Honey Boo Boo is actually more interesting than the presidential debate... and I hate that show with every fiber of my being. Although my dad and Bill O'Reilly might agree with you.

More end of the world garbage. I'll show you all, I'll fix the whole problem by buying a 2013 calender. If a 2013 calender comes out then the world is not scheduled for demolition this year by the Vogons.

First, about the Mayan calender. How to put this, well, thing is the calender will end and not the world. To bad for us all if I am wrong when it comes to this.
Second, about Planet X. If if was close enough to crash into us by the end of the year then we would see it by now... unless it´s a super ninja planet.

I think it's a complete load of bollocks, anyway. It's the end of an ancient calendar, to me that doesn't mean it has any relation to the end of the world. Who knows when the world ends. A large meteor could kill off half the planet tomorrow if you will. But yes, I think it's a lod of bollocks.

I think it's silly to assume all of this when we don't know the whole story behind the calendar. If only the Mayans weren't wiped out, a descendant could have helped shed light on this long ago.
