There must be bold
individuals who react positively to the telephone.
Because if there weren't, then I'd argue it would be
safe to assume there would be less random telephone
calling of complete strangers by complete strangers. As
you know the modern telephone is a miracle of technology
and a person once he knows how to, can press a couple of
buttons and go back into time, which I guess is a sort
of cave, and there he will find a cache of the telephone
calls he has received. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of
complete strangers with what must have been very
important messages which I at least have completely
If you go back to
something like 1965, a telephone would ring in the domicile
and all normal activity would come to a complete halt.
There'd be yelling and rushing around because back then if a
telephone wasn't answered before it rang three times the
world would pretty much come to an end. Or at least had a
potential to come to end because back then if ever a
telephone stopped ringing before it was answered, it was
necessary to stare at it for at least five minutes so that
blame might be cast, in the event that the world had come to
an end. A simpler more innocent time I suppose.
