  1. Hahaha! We had the good luck of owning the only telephone in the entire colony when I was a child, which meant that I was the messenger for whosoever had a call in the entire neighbourhood. I never took the calls though. Never had friends who would call in 🙂

  2. Even the hand gesture we use to symbolise a telephone handset is changing, according to QI [BBC2 & Dave]: instead of the old ‘cranked’ extended finger & thumb pose, we should now be using a flat palm, to symbolise a mobile—the logic being that ‘nobody’ uses bone-shaped landline phones now. Cheers, Jon.
