Out of the Blue

I recently discovered that I only really need to follow one rule to avoid the acid reflux I've been diagnosed with, which is to avoid eating too late in the evening (which I think means I don't really have true reflux, but maybe that's a quibble). I proved this last night by failing to follow this rule, and giving myself a terrible case of heartburn. Okay, lesson learned (again).

Funny, I decided yesterday that the History channel had died when I checked On Demand and the only programming they had available was reality TV shows like fucking Ice Truckers.

Agreed. 95% of what is played on History Channel is NOT history. They ought to go back to being the World War II channel. I think the last good show I've seen on History was Wild West Tech. Now its all UFO's, Nostradamus, and Monster Quest. WTF does that have to do with history?

Actually, I kinda wish there was a channel that showed the UFO/Doomsday shows history/discovery had in the 90s. I'd rather have stuff like that than 12 hours of Ice Road Truckers and Pawn Stars.
