There is nothing to be done, “took the tug, do not let go.” And then, many hours of thought, what else can be offered to Internet users, which TV channels will be of interest to different categories of “citizens” inhabiting the planet called “Earth” from young to old. Here, everyone was not up to jokes. The task seemed unattainable and insoluble. “Think Arkasha, think!
