I was watching The Unit tonight on television. In case you aren't
familiar with the show, it's about a U.S. military special operations
team.

As the show began (Season 2, Episode 19 — "The Outsiders") they
showed a couple members of the operations team, and below them on
the screen was the legend Papua, New Guinea.

But the actors portraying the local people were black. And the mode
of dress was definitely African.

I guess somebody forgot to tell the director of the show that Africa
is on the opposite side of the frigging planet from New Guinea.

Or at least almost.

But, hey — Guinea, New Guinea — it's all the same thing, right?

Jeezus.

Maybe I should write the show a letter. And offer my services as an
"anthropological consultant" for, say, $120K per year.
