Wondrous Box

I’m really grateful to the person who invented this wondrous box of unlimited information and entertainment. To invent this wondrous box takes a great amount of time. The origins of what would become today's television system can be traced back to the discovery of the photoconductivity of the element selenium by Willoughby Smith in 1873, the invention of a scanning disk by Paul Gottlieb Nipkow in 1884, and Philo Farnsworth's Image dissector in 1927. On March 25, 1925, Scottish inventor John Logie Baird gave a demonstration of televised silhouette images in motion at Selfridge's Department Store in London

But of course in the 20th century, this wondrous box have evolve to all shape and sizes, and yet it’s still doing the same wondrous job in giving unlimited information and entertainment to us. And I’m sure up till now you should know what this wondrous box is? That is ‘Television’ that we are watching in our daily lives.

At times I do think being a couch potato was not that bad after all. Stick to your chair day and night absorbing all the information that TV emit. I was once there but not that extreme. I do learn a lot from TV, most of my general knowledge comes those educational channels like National Geographic, Discovery, Discovery & Living and etc. I guess the TV is a good source of information besides the book or newspaper we read everyday. Of course besides these educational channels come the movies, TV series and dramas channels which entertain us from time to time. Even from these channels I get to learned from it. I guess it’s really up to individual how you see things how you want to absorb these information.

Besides learning from all these channels it actually keeps you updated with the world news. What’s going on around the world we live in? I guess it’s important that we should know what is happening in the world today as we’re not living alone in this beautiful planet. With this news that has been broadcast, I believe it brings the human race closer and the world seems smaller that we thought it should be. We as human beings have a conscious mind, where ever there is disaster we’ll keep these people in prayers or try to find ways to help the victims in anyway we can.

So I do believe this great invention that has created for us, to make us feel closer and the world is not that big as we think it would be.
