Show Description
Standing by in life waiting for your cue and you muff your lines. Thinking of mother - makes people nervous. Killing time, how much of your life is spent in pure unadulterated 'scut'. The general mechanics of existence - cleaning the dishes, getting mad, cleaning the floor, etc. Building the Houston Astrodome, the end of baseball. The loss of wind and lack of temperature and humidity variation affects the outcome of the game. Packaging the product to sell. Breakfast cereal, cars. Dress up the package, but the insides remain the same. Definition of work. What do we define work as. Magnetic lines of force, a science lesson. Our body - how it generates and conducts electricity. Our television, not just a receiver. What is magic? How does radio work?
