On TV, You Never Hear The Furnace

I've seen more than my fair share of TV shows. In them, many scenes take place in homes. Not once, however, have I heard a furnace kick on or off during one of these scenes. In real life, of course, we hear the furnace all the time. I, personally, am eternally annoyed by it as I'm trying to fall asleep.

So, you heard it here first: I will give 5 cents to the creator of a TV show in which I hear a furnace. Five cents — out of my pocket, and into the hands of innovation.

This post written without glasses, so you'll forgive me if there was a 'g' in the moiddle of "furnace" or something.

PS — a close friend told me that he doesn't value my technical opinion, and therefore I should be posting more non-technical posts. What a friend, eh? Well, Mr. Loserface, I think I'll just get more technical, to spite you. For the next four weeks, I'll be doing daily coverage on the source code to irb.rb. We'll learn how the code works inside and out, and maybe learn a little about ourselves along the way.

(Actually, no, I won't. If you got here via technorati or something, and were hoping for coverage of irb, then I'm sorry to put your dreams on such a whirlwind tour like that. But I have good reason — I wanted to spite a "friend.")
