Quote of the Day

“Incidentally, disturbance from cosmic background radiation is something we have all experienced. Tune your television to any channel it doesn't receive, and about 1 percent of the dancing static you see is accounted for by this ancient remnant of the Big Bang. The next time you complain that there is nothing on, remember that you can always watch the birth of the universe.”
-- Bill Bryson

Do you still have an analog TV you can use to do it?

I...think so. I think the one the kids have their XBox plugged into is analog. I'll still tell them that because I like to watch them roll their eyes at me.
