Here's a fun fact: Back when I had a TV, the channel now known as TLC was called "The Learning Channel". Isn't that hilarious? As if anyone could learn anything from TV.

@ambulocetus back in the day that was the dream; television as a medium of mass learning, beaming knowledge into thousands of households at a time...

@ambulocetus We actually had a channel similar to The Learning Channel here that was structured around courses ranging from home computing to history.


My mom, circa 1965:

Any man who says TV is bad is a man who has never had to take care of a sick child
