I am Addicted to How It's Made

Have you seen the show, How It's Made on Discovery?

It absolutely fascinates me. Industrialism fascinates me and seeing the high speed automation of just about everything is incredibly cool. But not everything they cover is automated, the making of acoustic guitars, for example, is largely done by hand and involves an awful lot of precise work to end up with a nice sounding guitar.

It is also very cool to see how many steps there are in creating something as "simple" as a toothpick or book of matches.

Check out some of the videos on the site and tell me they aren't fascinating.
