History Lesson: Channel Surfing

You won’t believe what people used to do before their interactions with the outside world were confined to their fucking phones.

I had no idea Fusion was this edgy.

“For most of us who grew up in a time when people still sat in front of the TV and just flicked through the channels to see what was on, C-SPAN was the group of channels you frantically clicked right through.”

— I did not wake up this morning with any greater desire for death than is usually the case, but seeing this description of C-SPAN in a piece advocating for the importance of the network, you can only imagine how desperate I am now for the final embrace from existence. I am indeed a person who grew up when people still sat in front of the TV and just flicked through the channels to see what was on. Guess what? THERE WERE THREE OF THEM THEN. I have no place in this future world of yours.
