The two party system. Also, the U.S. healthcare system. Also, for-profit prisons.

TV antennas

Wha.....? I'm using a copper pair right now to type this, and with no antenna here, there'd be no digital TV.

Anyway...

On the surface, this 1930s Lysol ad is about a woman's vaginal odor. But Lysol was
also used as a contraceptive spermicide, which the "organic matter" line alludes to.

The most popular brand of douche was Lysol—an antiseptic soap whose pre-1953 formula contained cresol, a phenol compound reported in some cases to cause inflammation, burning, and even death. By 1911 doctors had recorded 193 Lysol poisonings and five deaths from uterine irrigation.

Confused

That reminds me of this advertisement from the 1950's providing evidence that a cleaning cream really cleaned the skin using radio active dirt! as an example of how well it works. Blink

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I'm willing to bet most people don't know what that is...

I'm also willing to bet I'm the only one here who actually made a living with one....


It's a Vibroplex semi-auto mechanical telegraphy speed key.....

It's for sending high speed Morse code....

I could send 35 word per minute with one- I passed my high speed test at 50 wpm receiving... (no test for sending - they figure if you can receive - you can send)

But isn't it more blessed to send than to receive?

There's some stuff that tubes still do better than transistors....

Enough so - that the Russians still use them in their space program.

In space - heat doesn't "rise" as there is no "up".. Transistors have to be air cooled - and if a simple fan goes out - they usually don't last long under heavy load. Tubes? They'll take serious heat without degrading. Another plus - they handle radiation bombardment better than a transistor. They're "bulletproof"..
