Circumstantial evidence that our forefathers may indeed have walked to school through snow uphill both ways

August 3, 2012

It takes a lot for a comic book advertisement to give me pause. This did. I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that hot water was still an optional feature for many back in the 1940s, but if you have electricity, it seems that you wouldn’t need to attach a coffeepot to a faucet to get a meager sprinkling of warm aqua. That this would be found amongst the ads for (Dick Tracy) cameras and dumb wallets is crazy from here on our comfortable Western post-millennial perch. You know, where we get all in a twist if Twitter is down for an hour.

AC or DC current. Who could resist?

    even today this would be nifty
    especially during camping and the communal bathrooms or when you want to wash your hands in a publich bathroom just plug it in and have warm water
