my worst experience with a science program was one on the History channel. It was all about the rings on the planets in our solar system.
They first started talking about the rings of Saturn. But then said that there were rings around Uranus. And Jupiter. And Neptune. They mentioned no rings around Mars, but said that in the next segment they were going to discuss the rings around Earth.
I couldn't believe this! I hadn't heard about rings around EARTH. This was exciting news. I sat through the commercial break on the edge of my seat.
The rings around Earth? They were referring to satellits orbiting the planet and said our rings were man-made.
Fuck you History channel. And the prehistoric horses you rode in on. That is not what your average viewer was expecting and you should be ashamed for getting our hopes up at something monumental.
