There's an awful show on The Discovery Channel called How It's Made, I don't know why it's on my TV every time I sit down in here to use the computer, but it's the most boring thing I've ever seen.
Anyway, this isn't really about my critique of TDC's programming, I'm posting because, normally on this show, I can look up and know what they're making. It's usually fairly obvious that the pile of sticks is going to be a basket, and the molten metal is going to be some sort of tool or whatever, and if it's not obvious, the worst narrator ever will tell me in a reasonable amount of time. However, I've been sort of absently listening to this for about 10 minutes now and they keep referring to whatever it is that they're making as "the apparatus." I can't tell from looking at it what it is, but I'm afraid that I'm going to get sucked into the whole damn show in order to figure it out.
I hope it's something naughty, and that the censors are making them refer to it this way, because it's illegal to say "sex toy" before noon.
