Lost in translation

I'm currently in US (Tucson,Arizona). For some reason (Financial actually) I only get free channels in my hotel room. If you have ever been stuck with Doordarshan during a cricket match you know you can't switch channels and thus end up watching the Ads too (which are some times more entertaining)

Another thing (can be called as culture shock) is the way medication is peddled (sorry advertised) here on T.V. they even have medication for the Restless Leg Syndrome.

Another thing is the disclaimer at the end of the Ads....I don't want to specify any names so here are the list of "side effects" of one of the be fair they actually mention most of these in the ad!!

Disclaimer: This post has no medical value (or any other value for that matter) and may cause effects on either your left or the right side, there usually are no effects on the Inside but may lead to varied facial changes on the outside....)
