Rotary Phone

The other day I called a landline and heard a busy signal.  And I realized that because of cell phones and call waiting, I couldn’t remember the last time I’d heard one.  And I grew UP with them.  So imagine what it’s like for today’s kids.

“Mental Floss”just put out a list of 11 sounds your kids have probably never heard.  Here are some of the highlights . . .

–A rotary phone dial.

–A typewriter.

–A camera flash cube.

–Changing the TV dial.

–A late-night TV station sign-off.

–An old-fashioned cash register.

–A film projector.

–A coffee percolater

–A record changer

–A gas station driveway bell

–A broken record
