Parents always carry cash in either increments of $50 or $100 to give their children just for the asking  (courtesy any American sitcom structured around family home life).

The average "day" must be about 42 hours or no one spends time GETTING from point A to point B, even in big cities like Los Angeles and New York.  (See Numb3rs for particularly good examples of this...).  I just have not gotten my teleporter yet.

Bodie:      I've been giving myself shock treatments.
Professor Hathaway: Up the voltage.

Lets see, what I learned from TV?  Hundreds and hundreds of things.  I have watched the discovery channel for 25 years and I learned a lot from it like:

Without cinder blocks to weigh the down, washers would shake themselves to pieces (Secret life of machines)

Luminol makes human proteins glow, but it also reacts to horse radish (New Detectives and Forensic Files)

Cloning techniques are used to copy DNA when an evidence source is limited. (New Detectives)

When an unknown body is suspected to be a certain victim, a reverse paternity test is performed.  DNA samples are taken from both the suspected victims parents and combined.  This would be called the biological child of the victim's parents and would closely match the victim's DNA. (New Detectives)

The Best Way to cool the burn of capsaiacin from jalapeno, habanero or other hot peppers is to drink milk (Good Eats)

A lot of foods are made through a controlled rotting process called fermentation (various food network shows)

Liquor was called spirits in medieval times (Good Eats)

The most expensive coffee in the world is $300 a pound and comes from the butt of a goat. (Tyler's Ultimate)

Steven Spielberg thinks we're all stupid (Mythbusters)

FLIR stands for Forward Looking Infra Red (World's Wildest Police Videos)

Police use the PIT maneuver to stop speeding cars.  What they do is bump the rear panel of a fleeing car to force it to spin out (World's Wildest Police Videos)

Babe, I'm leaving.  I must be on my way.  The time is drawing near.  The train is going.  I see it in your eyes.  The love beneath your tears.  And I'll be lonely without you.  And I'll need your love to see me through.  So please me.  My heart is your hands.  And I'll be missing you...

Watching The Wire taught me not to go to Baltimore  Buggedout

From Mythbusters: It's really hard to shoot someone if they're underwater.
You can't make a propane tank explode just by shooting at it.
Jet packs are impractical.

From The Young Ones: Don't look at matchboxes.  They're irrelevant.  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
