Sudden Short Story 106

"So," said one to the other, as they were out on an afternoon stroll, "what made you choose the 1990s planet, anyway?" 
He thought for a moment, to summarize his thoughts, and then said, "I suppose that the main thing was TV.  The broadcast experience adds just the right amount of chaos:  I surf to browse a random subset of what's there, and then pick from that.  If I like a series, I actually have to wait for the next episode, so I can experience boredom, which was a feeling that I'd lost on Earth." 
"That seems fair.  I kind of like the TV, too, though I'm more intrigued by what they do with the effects cap.  That's gotten us some real creativity over the years."
