When the "Weekly Rob
" blog featured my "Inflationary Lyrics
" project, BruceS commented:
Are there pay phones that only take a quarter? Ours take two, so the tireless updaters would need to rhyme with "50 cents". Of course, few people use pay phones any more, since everyone (even cavemen, according to TV) now has a cell phone. Cell phones not only allow people to share their call with strangers, instead of having that annoying isolation of a pay phone box, they also allow us to make and receive calls while driving, sharing lunch with a friend, or disposing of that lunch later in a public facility. Try any of *that* with a pay phone!
