What Is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is about things that are fun and can make people laugh or feel good. These are often things that hit on the points our brains were shaped to react deeply to. This includes things like social backstabbing, murders and other themes our brains were shaped to understand in order to function in the world around us. This is often why the word entertainment is abbreviated to entmt on fliers, in industry news publications, or when it is being used in short hand note taking.
