    I saw that “How It’s Made: Episode 12 (Discovery, 7:30 p.m.)” was on above, so
    I turned the show on.

    I can’t believe they fuzzed out the female mannequins breasts.

    Last I checked, there was not too much detail on a femal mannequin at all–particularly in the breast. Fuzzing them out would not seem to accomplish much–not like there are nipples to cover or anything like that.

    Mannequin factories are scary. I have seen photos of the warehouses where they go into final assembly. Arms as far as the eye can see. Legs as far as the eye can see. And so on and so on. Freaky.

    Out of all these shows on all these channels I think I only get one of the channels listed. I wish my cable company carried DIY. It doesn’t matter Spike was showing more than enough CSI for me last nite.

    Does anybody watch ‘Chop Cut Rebuild’ on Speed? I watched it a year or so ago and couldn’t stand it. Has it gotten any better? The concept is nice, but the result ‘was’ (still is?) horrible.

    Caught most of the Tank Overhaul show. It was okay. Two annoying points. This is obviously a hobby only for bored millionaires, but more annoying is that they didn’t actually finish restoration by the end of the show. Most of the show was an explanation of how the Panther had avoided being cut up for scrap by the Poles (by being in a deep river) , and a not very exciting recreation of what ‘mystery’ explosion crippled it in the first place (the tank crew crippled it when they escaped).

    Man I dunno. Tanks are cool even if million punks are the only ones who can have them. I’ll admit they could have handled better but still, anything about tanks is sweet in my book.
