I have hands, but just imagine if you didn't! how would you perform everday tasks? such as typing, or even reading a book (with no hands to turn the pages you'd never get past the cover, or even get the book from the shelf)...sure you could hire a helper or marry ugly but who has the time and money for
that? if only there was a tv station that would show books all day...the pages could be turned for you...sure you'd have to have someone set the channel for you but once you've tuned in there's no reason to tune out...
reading rainbow came close...but it was tough to trust those kids, and lavar burton wasn't always easy on the eyes...I know if i lost my hands i would love to have a channel like this
