I don't know why I punish myself by watching television. Like many bad relationships, after a few weeks apart you forget all the abuse and think it will be different this time around.

I turned on the television this week to be presented with a show about forensic science. It was quite interesting. It focused on how field techniques are taught. This involved the use of donated bodies. Sounded like a great idea for something to do with the leftovers after you die. Donate your organs and then let them play with the other bits to teach police and scientists how to find and recover evidence.

Everything was fine until the guy instructing the group pulled out a pair of rods and started demonstrating how to find a buried corpse by dowsing. If I'd been on the course I would have asked for my money back right then.

What the fuck is up with the television networks lately? There's psychic detectives solving crimes all over the place. It must annoy the people who really solve crimes through hard work and hours of boring slog.

The government should consider introducing some laws to make semi-retarded bullshit illegal. People are stupid enough already without seeing this sort of crap and thinking that the magic pixies will help them to win the lottery because the spirit of their dead mother is talking to them through the keno numbers.
