    Some Documentaries May Have Become "lietoyoumentaries"

    If you get all your facts from documentaries, you will be sorely lacking in truth. There are so many falsehoods you would think they have nothing to lose but the truth. For instance, do you ever question something you saw in a documentary, then go check the stated facts as given...

    The most boring documentary I've ever seen was

    "Twinsters" - about two identical strangers who discover one another in a pretty random fashion. (One of them - from America - is in a movie short that is on YouTube. The other is from France, living in London, and a friend of hers sees the video and notes the uncanny...

    Does anybody else have never ending stress? Do we ever feel that once this problem is over I'll have freedom again? But only to often after a problem disappears another one appears does that hold true for anybody?

    I love watching documentaries.

    Watching real life stories is so exciting to me. I don't like fake movies cause documentaries are so interesting. You can actually view a persons whole life in two or three hours. I get creeped out by the ones about murderers. Documentaries are great entertainment.

    Historical documentaries are interesting.

    Here in England they have been examining lots about the Great War, of 1914 1918, and recently about the Plantagenet kings they had here in the Middle Ages.
