I just discovered that YouTube has tons of videos of live TV shows getting prank phone calls! Search for "East Coast Bob" or "Captain Janks" to get a bunch.

This is a fascinating and highly acclaimed 10-part documentary series that was first aired on the BBC, and subsequently on PBS in the US. It follows the history of science and technology with each episode tracking an ancient invention and its effects right up to the modern day (well, up to 1979). I am learning more from this series and from Connections 2 and 3 than I did in 12 years of schooling.
“My apartment is infested with koala bears. It's the cutest infestation ever. Way better than cockroaches. When I turn on the light, a bunch of koala bears scatter, but I don't want them too. I'm like, Hey... Hold on fellows... Let me hold one of you, and feed you a leaf." - Mitch Hedberg
DeathofBees, I learned a lot from Connections too. Most of which I've probably forgotten. But the main theme stuck with me: innovations add up, are remembered (usually) and are improved on (eventually).
Okay... Sarah Silverman baffles me. On the one hand, I find myself sometimes laughing at her, just because she's so outrageous. A rabbi I once knew said that humor is the incongruous, and that we laugh when things are out of whack. But she's gross. I mean, she's honestly gross and nasty, in a really filthy way sometimes.
I can watch Lisa Lampenelli, with all of her ethnic slurs, and I think she's hilarious. Because she's clearly doing it for the fun. With Silverman... I don't know. There's something really almost evil lurking there. But then, I laugh at her sometimes. Usually, I just blush, though, and wonder how she can possibly not blush as well.
Was that completely made up, btw, or did she actually break up with Jimmy Kimmel using that video? I mean, he didn't seem amused, and the look on her face at the end of the video... Ick.

I dunno. I watch Sarah Silverman as easily as I watch Stephen Colbert. They're both so disgusting that it's obviously a joke to me. Lampenelli I just find gross, period, but that's probably because she's a gross looking woman.
