TV Rots Your Brain

I watch a whole documentary on corn last night. Corn. To make matters worse, I watch it again when it came on three hours later.
What the fuck is wrong with me?

Oh my God. That is amazing. First of all please tell me it was like a corn expose or something. Like the evils of corn, and it's spread of cancer throughout Native Americans back when it was known as "maize". Also, did you learn more the first time, or the second?

To be perfectly honest; both times I watched it, I felt like that deflated girl in the "Above The Influence" commercials...just without the pot smoking.
I could totally imagine a friend saying, "This is the way it's been since she started college. She's all lazy and boring and... You know we used to have so much fun together. Now all she does is read and watch documentaries on corn."
Oh and just a little factoid: Corn flour explodes. Yeah. They call it a grain duct explosion and it happens when a large amount of the particles are exposed to a spark. What an awful way to die. Death by corn duct.

Oh my God, I always loved that commercial, I'm not really sure why to be honest. How often does corn flour come into contact with a spark anyways? And why is all the corn flour in a duct in the first damn place?
