I have one of those from my grandparents' house. The number label in the middle of the dial says: "dial ATlas 9..." I need to find an adapter so I can plug it into the "new" jack. Rings louder than a chainsaw-wielding jet-powered air raid siren.

Constucted so robustly, you could bash in someone's head with one...new phones, forget about it.

That WAS some peoples home protection. You could use the hand piece as a billy club and still call the police with it. Non-emergency number too, cuz the guy isn't getting up for awhile.

Kill it and reduce DPF activity? Can you people make up your minds, please?

How many new posts were added today as of 4:30pm? Maybe 10 total? Ouch.

Scrolling through the first section on the index page just now I see 4 last posts from Ihave4kidsbutimaloneintheworld, 1 from jazznews, and 1 from johnnygoatpenis.

There goes my forum activity. Bye.

Oh that wasn't me announcing my departure for good, just from that visit. Seeing the last post column full of the latest blanket posters turns me away. I always look forward to your blather. (I'd put a smiling emoticon here but I don't use them.)

Don't worry, Jazz, there's a wall of infamy for our most outstanding world-class idiots, and you are definitely not on it.

Not sure if that's what you want to hear, but hey.
