Subject: Re: Zapping
So, does anyone out there know anything about where "zapping" might be
lurking in North America? What terms do you use for this practice, if any?
Channel surfing? Others?
Zapping things in a microwave oven (i.e., cooking them) is at least 10 years old
in the Midwest. As for TV use, my parents (downstate IL) refer to the remote
control device as the zapper.
