People say history is boring, and that is true because people are boring. We haven't changed since time began. We're still the same. We've obviously made some changes. When we started, it was all about food, clothing and shelter. Now we watch Top Chef (2006), Project Runway (2004), and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (2003). See more »
