Big Bang a Big Problem?

Turn your television to one of the highest channels it can tune to. Most sets go up to channel 125 or 181. Static, right? Well, turn the brightness and contrast down. WAY down. Lot less static, right? Well, what if I told you that 1 out of every 100 or so of those static dots is due to radiation left over from the big bang. How is this a problem? Well, this won't be filtered out when you're watching TV on a higher channels, so even with perfect reception, you'll still get static. Gets annoying when you're trying to watch reruns of the Golden Girls.
