 Op-Ed: On Television, Reality Isn’t So

Op-Ed: On Television, Reality Isn’t So

I am beginning to see a pattern develop that perhaps we can share with our students.

Maybe, just maybe, these shows are fake.

Reality may not be reality, at least on television.

On television:

  • Ghost hunters never find ghosts.
  • Treasure hunters never find the treasure.
  • Bigfoot hunters never find Bigfoot.
  • UFO hunters never find UFOs.
  • Ancient alien hunters never find ancient aliens.
  • Knights Templar hunters never find Knights templar.
  • Nazi gold hunters never find Nazi gold.
  • Lost Dutchman Mine hunters never find the Lost Dutchman’s mine.
  • Love hunters never find love.
  • Gold miners never find gold.
  • Expeditions to the unknown never find something that was unknown
  • Psychics never find what they are looking for.
  • Yeti Hunters never find the Yeti.
  • Loch Ness monster hunters never find Nessie.
  • Atlantis hunters never find Atlantis.
  • Bachelors never find a wife.
  • Bachelorettes never find a husband.
  • The hunt for King Arthur never finds King Arthur.
  • The fake moon landings never found a studio.
  • Zombie hunters never find zombies.

    Nothing you can see that isn’t shown
    Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be
    It’s easy
