...is because it gives them an excuse not to do the stuff they know they should be doing but don't want to.
I'd rather have everyone just chill for once, though.
Although then there would be one less source of entertainment for me.
Which is a shame, for I dearly love to laugh. Being amused is one of the golden nuggets of life.
So... by all means, create drama, and tell me all about it.
A funny thing: I have a tendency to internalize the problems people in reality TV shows have - though they're scripted - and to externalize the problems my friends and family have - though they're real.
Ergo: the drama I hear real people around me have is a more healthy form of entertainment for me than conventional entertainment.
Yes, I'm sick and evil.
