So you ask, why. A good friend fell off his ladder while washing his travel trailer 6 years ago. A few weeks after the surgeons put his broken bones back together, he had a stroke. The blood clot originated from one of the surgery sites. Can't talk, can't walk.

I hired help the next day. I don't climb ladders anymore.
I worked with a guy who fell off a ladder and spent the rest of his days in a wheelchair. That's what scares me about ladders.

I Just told my assistant to "send a telex, this is important" yesterday, just to see the look on her 24 year old face

And the fax machines where you had to put the phone into the "special slot" at both ends after speaking.

Cutting edge 1980's technology!

You remember the fax machine with the canister that you had to clip the paper into and it went round and round? 6 minutes a page. Damn, it stunk

...and there was no such thing as a surprise test, because everyone could smell the fresh dittos as soon as they walked into the classroom.

I sometimes wonder if the reason why we all didn't need Adderall was because we all sniffed dittos in school every day?????

X-ray machine in shoe stores. You insert your feet info a slot and then look down in a viewer and can see the bones and check the fit of the shoes. Very early memory for me... Do we now all get toe cancer due to the radiation exposure?

I spent a lot of my time in the Navy in the 1970s and early 1980s typing on a Model 28 teletype and working with those 5-level paper tapes. The machine itself had about a zillion parts to it -- a real mechanical wonder/nightmare. But when a good teletype maintenance tech had fine-tuned it, oh my I could type like lightning!
