While I was watching the NFL playoff games yesterday, I saw several commercials for DIRECTV that boasted how subscribers could record up to five television programs at the same time. Why? I can't think of five shows a week worth recording.
And in an unrelated matter, when Chuck Berry instructed Beethoven to roll over, why did he ask Beethoven to "tell Tchaikovski" the news? Why didn't he ask Ludwig to tell the news to, say, Brahams? Or Mozart?
