    I always was disappointed they made the handset cable so short so you
    couldn't set your bluebox on the floor. Thoses little desks would be
    fine, but microminiaturization hadn't come into reality, so the
    blueboxes were pretty big....and wouldn't set on the little desk in
    the phone booths.

    Mis-spent, my ass. Compared to today, we were geniuses!

    3600 planes with transponders are burning 8-10 million
    gallons of kerosene per hour over the USA. R-12 car air
    conditioners are responsible for the ozone hole, right?

    Well, we did invent SSB, moonbounce and masers, among other things.
    And at least one ham notified Nasa of the gigantic spur on one of
    their command module transmitters.
