Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well the guns and Nazis channel isn't exactly overflowing with great history. At least it's better than the Bloody Crab fishing series that my father is watching at the moment. How many ways are there to show a basket of crab lifted over the side of a boat?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

But at least guns and Nazis have something to do with history.  Truckers driving drilling and mining supplies around frozen roads in the middle of nowhere?  Not so much.

The crab show is on the Discovery Channel, I think.  Discovery and History have gotten themselves into an arms race to see who can come up with the most ridiculous idea for a show about Manly Men doing stuff the rest of us wouldn't do for all the gold in Fort Knox.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

I never understood the point of the ice truckers show - it seemed to be 1 hour of content drawn out into about 3 seasons of crap.

It's just simple, don't have to think much, modern "reality" entertainment.
