    There was a rapist in the neighbourhood and TV Stations were there the next morning interviewing people. Being the moron that I was back in my teens, I jokingly said that I thought it was my buddy.

    It's a box with (usually) glass surface on one side. Images taken from cameras appear on this surface in rapid succession to illustrate motion. I don't know the exact technical stuff that is inside them, but that is basically it.

    When did this happen? Why don't I know about this? Why is it interesting looking at images moving quickly?

    As far as I can remember the first TV was in the early 1880s. It's not new at all. Where have you been? :confused:

    Images movie quickly produces a fluid motion as if it was just a really small world inside the box. I can't really explain it too well but it's just like watching the real world around you but in a smaller, 2 dimensional surface.

    Here is a picture of a man watching a TV, while drinking some coffee. This is the normal process if you are interested in learning.

    Where can I acquire one of these fluid image machines? My tribe could use one of those. We are very bored on Friday nights and would like to watch Oprah and Jerry Springer. I hear they are the best representations of American life.

    I can remember two instances I was on TV. There were probably more, but I don't remember them offhand.

    The first was when I was, oh, probably five years old. I was hanging out in a municipal park eating a popsicle, and this ITV (acquired by Global News 6 or 7 years ago) news crew just happened to be there filming a story (the subject matter therein escapes me, and doesn't really matter). Anyway, this film crew in question was filming their story whilst the camera was pointing at me. My mom, seeing the glorious opportunity presenting itself, said, "Hey look, there's a camera behind you!" So I, being the dumbass that I was, started looking all around me for the camera, and couldn't see it. Long story short: A news crew caught me on tape turning around in circles like a kid with ADD.

    The second was a bit less embarassing. In April of 2005, our Head of State, the Queen of England (whoopdy fucking doo!), made a visit to Alberta to commemorate our province's centennial. She was scheduled to do a walkthrough in Edmonton's newly renovated Churchill square, and, well, just generally act like a Queen. Anyway, on this particular occasion, two groups of high school musicians were selected to perform while she was walking through the square - the EYO (Edmonton Youth Orchestra), and my school's jazz ensemble. There were some cheerleaders as well, but hey, who really gives a shit about them? Long story short: I got to play in front of the Queen of England, and we got about 3 seconds of air time on the news. We even got gold painted medals... Yeah, I know. I'm fucking famous.

    You sure went to a lot of trouble to be sarcastic. :dunce:

    Yes ... I was christmas shopping a few years back and when I left an electronics store I was greeted by a camera team and a reporter who askes me whether or not I agree with the new motto of the store ("Geiz is geil" ... or "Being cheap is cool"). I gave my opinion and later that day it was on a major network here in Germany. I didn't see it myself. But the next day when I went to school a few people told me that they had seen me on TV.
