We turned off the radio in the pilot plant and I got permission to bring in my iPod dock to play something and I offered music or a book on tape and the group selected the latter having the further options of:
1) A 45-part history of the United States that can put a cup of coffee to sleep
2) An 8-hour book on an alternate theory of how the universe can have infinitely increasing entropy in both directions on the axis of time
The history of the US won out. I don’t think I’d be so angry if I weren’t already 1/2 way through it so now I get to hear the riveting tale of why the Zwingli church never caught on in the US all over again!
