Lessons from 24

I've been watching that show '24' on Fox. It's the show that's in real time - the entire season takes place over a 24-hour period, and each episode is one hour.

Here are the lessons I've learned from this show:

1. When you're a former spy like Kiefer Sutherland's character, the adventures find YOU. The more that you swear up and down that you're out of the business, the more we know you'll get sucked back in.

2. The bad guys can always tap your cell phone..even though they don't know your name or cell phone number. So if you're playing online poker and stumble across some illegal terrorist activity, don't use your cell phone to call your friends at the FBI - the bad guys are already listening.

3. All of the evil terrorists have infiltrated the U.S., and live and work among innocent civilians. They hate and want to destroy it. But they all speak English to each other all of the time. Even when they're plotting terrorist attacks in public places.

4. There's always at least one evil, powerful woman who screws everything up, and prolongs the apprehension of the terrorists until the 24th hour. Two seasons ago, it was the First Lady. This year, it's Kiefer Sutherland's evil boss.

5. Nobody seems to have any bowel movements in the 24 hour period. In fact, you can just imagine Kiefer saying, "Man, if she hadn't messed with my brakes, I could have caught the bad guys hours ago, gone home, pooped and watched Seinfeld."
