What I Watched Last Night

There is a show on the Discovery Channel called Myth Busters, and on this show the solvers of myths and legends do just that. They bust myths.

I have enjoyed this show since it started, but lately the show has not been solving myths.Last night they tested security devices. Security devices are not myths. They are proven to deter would-be criminals and to prevent mischief. Thermal, sonar, and motion alarms were all put to the test and all failed with a little ingenuity. A safe was cracked with explosives and water, simple enough.

Security systems have never been a challenged myth. Security systems have always broken. There has never been something that is impenetrable. The Mongols broke down the Great Wall. An iceberg sank the Titanic. Illegal immigrants are flowing through our borders and terrorists are bringing Coke onto planes. Security is always being broken. There is no myth here. Move on.


Other than Myth Busters, I watched the Cubs lose to the Phillies on WGN. I watched the Cubs lose to the Phillies in person the night before. I watched the Cubs lose to the Phillies on Comcast Sports Network the day before that. If the Myth Busters really want to solve a myth, they should try to solve this: Why, really, do the Cubs lose so much? No one has been able to solve that one, and I am sure it would be appreciated if it were solved.
