Yes good line!
Perception: I heard about a study in Sweden on children who do not
watch TV verses those who do. The children, who happened to be the
indigenous Lapps in the North, (I forget their real name) who did not
watch TV saw 300 more colors than those who watch TV. Wish I could find
the study, does anyone know of it?

Also I am doing interviews, research with those that do not watch TV,
about their dreams. Hope it is ok to post this here.

Along the same lines, an old (?) joke/quote (If you know the source,
please speak up...):

"I used to think the brain was the most important organ in the human
body. Then I realized who was telling me this..."

Caveat lector.
