candidevoltaire: (disbelief)
Television, like the InterNet, was solely created to teach people.  Thankfully, television, again like the InterNet, has remained true to this mission for well over half a century.  During this time it has gotten more sophisticated in the manner it educates the masses.  As many other educational systems have realised, entertainment is often the best, if not only, way to get people to learn things and remember them.  Television has surely been at the forefront of this method.  Which brings me to something I recently learned from watching television.

I'm somewhat of an addict of the various Law & Order series on television since I want to learn more about law, policing, and criminality.  I particularly enjoy Law & Order: Special Victims Unit since it deals with such light-hearted material.  It's a show where it's easy to eat dinner and watch the episode at the same time.  Anyway, I happened to catch a particular episode the other day that allowed me to understand human sexuality is binary, unlike what various idiots misinformed people have been trying to convince me of for years.

candidevoltaire: (WHAT?!?)
In case you haven't noticed that Optimism is part of my Journal's title, it is.  So, I thought I'd find out just how optimistic I was by checking how cynical I am.

You Are 44% Cynical

Yes, you are cynical, but more than anything, you're a realist.
You see what's screwed up in the world, but you also take time to remember what's right.

Well, so much for Optimism.  But, I suppose that makes me Candide at the end of Voltaire's novel...
