All forms of ‘entertainment’ are designed to put ‘everyone’ into a passive state.
American Idol, Survivor, 24, House, One Life to Live, Professional Sports too.

Fifteen. Five to figure out how much the bulb costs in the local currency, four to
comment on “how funny-looking” local lightbulbs are, three to hire a local
person to change the bulb, two to take pictures, and one to buy postcards
in case the pictures don’t come out.
