What Is Entertaiment?

A good entertaiment is one which takes you out of your reality and transports you to another world, in a euphoric state where you wish that it never ends, just goes on forever.

Entertainment includes movies and television, music (listening to it, going to concerts, playing musical instruments), books, sports and games, attending live performances, and creating or appreciating visual art.
