Default What's up with The History Channel?

Has anyone noticed how off-the-wall The History Channel has become?

Once upon a time, The History Channel aired programs about ... history.

But in the last few years, THC has become the most bizarre channel. I'm actually in a hotel now watching an hour long program about "the ax."

"Whether it's in the hand's of Paul Bunyon clearing a forest...."
"The ax is really all about power!"
"Not only is the ax used to fell trees, it's also used to carve logs!"
(those were direct quotes, I kid you not).

There have been previous "history" shows on -- I kid you not -- dragons. And there's another one about to start now called "Monster Quest."

It reminds me of the American Museum of Natural History's exhibit last year on "Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids." At the Natural History Museum!

I don't think I could make this stuff up.
