And, until the introduction of plug and sockets in 1981, you couldn't swap around devices as your phone was hardwired into the wall. Using a rotary dial seemed perfectly natural at the time, but once push-button phones arrived in the UK in the 1980s ...

On a wall outside the headquarters of Adult Swim, a block-long mural painting presents a timeline of the TV shows that built one of the most popular—and by far strangest—networks on cable.
You don’t have to be an adherent of Judaism (older than Christianity or Islam) or a graduate of Harvard (founded in 1636) to understand that friendships, marriages, books, and ideas that pass the test of age often—not always, but often—endure... This is a point John Kennedy made in his first congressional campaign, defending capitalism and freedom against socialism and communism, when he said, “We, in this country, must be willing to do battle for old ideas that have proved their value... Nope, even the “T”-shaped Toyota logo on that would be on the front grille of the car is missing. It was stolen overnight when I had the car parked on the street in Brooklyn (a couple of blocks away from Bill de Blasio’s house, but during the Bloomberg mayoralty), and I never bothered either to report the loss to the police or to have the hood... One thing that matters more than what brand of car you drive is family. I pretty much came by my attitude toward cars from my father, who placed driving a new car lower on the priority list than saving or spending on other things, like education. The Toyota itself came to me originally used as a gift from my mother, who inherited it from her mother. The Camry made it to 100,000 miles with help from a couple of good mechanics, one in Brooklyn.
Weekend actuals are rolling in, and while Hunger Games – Mockingjay – Part 1 was actually up over its 3-day estimate of $56. 875M with an actual of $56. 97M. At $82. 6M, the threequel still holds its five-day holiday record (third best 5-day haul... All films on the chart this past weekend totaled $163. 15M, down 22% from last year’s post Thanksgiving weekend record of $208. 069M. That figure is actually a tad higher than what the 2008 Turkey frame grossed — but understand that a $160M... Last year was an all-time high, beating the previous year’s $207. 77M which was propped by Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 as well as four other films that made over $20M: Skyfall, Lincoln, Life of Pi and Rise of the Guardians. Black Friday competition, lower Thanksgiving, downer year — call it whatever you want in terms of the factors that impacted this year’s post holiday weekend. Pound for pound, Catching Fire was a more riveting film for moviegoers than Mockingjay — hence the difference between their 3-day post turkey weekend grosses ( ). Not to mention, last year, Frozen, a big time draw for females at 57% racked up $67....
Clocks, Microwaves, and the Limits of Fermi Problems
So, the clock on a microwave oven uses more electricity over the course of his lifetime than cooking food does. So, if you want your microwave oven to cost the least amount of money, don’t use it as a clock. Just turn it on when you want to use it.
