This is another of those hilarious “E-Mail Funnies” that my friend Rosie sends me from time to time: 😉
Now you all know what a fanatic I am when it comes to learning as much as I can about everything there is. Hell, if I had my way, every kid everywhere would be required to do weekly reports on what they’ve learned on their own that week, just to encourage them to use the awesome technology they waste so much time staring at and/or playing on to actually improve themselves – and their lives – instead.
But I must confess that I tend to focus more on science and philosophy, and less on history and civics. With that in mind, I’d like to take this opportunity to encourage everyone to take the time to watch an episode or two of the very funny, yet highly informative, How The States Got Their Shapes on H2 (formerly History Channel International). I’ve watched it off and on since it premiered, and every viewing has left me better educated about American History and the politics that drove it than I was before.
With so many “class distinction” issues being involved in the upcoming elections, recording the Red State vs. Blue State and White Collar vs. Blue Collar episodes just seemed like a good idea. Well, I just watched both of them back to back and thoroughly enjoyed every minute!
And guess what my friends? You can watch both episodes yourself at the links I just provided! 😀
I want ice water.
