Hey Joe Where's you going with that - gun in your era?
(courtesy: Jimi Hendrix : singer and song writer deceased)
Scenario No. 1: You’re driving along the Turnpike, having a pleasant conversation on your cell phone with your mother about what flowers she’s going to plant in the gardens of the senior citizens she works with and you get pulled over by a police officer: That’s a $250 fine.

Scenario No. 2: You’re driving along the Turnpike taking measured sips from a medium-sized bottle of Jack Daniel’s while smoking a cigarette and screaming at your wife and three kids, all of whom are in the car. And you’ve got your dog in your lap: That’s a $200 fine.

Sensible, right?

Not only that, you show me a bottle of Jack that can take a bullet, I’ll show you a bottle of Jack that’s made out of titanium, which, now that I’m thinking about it, isn’t the worst idea in the world, as far as ideas go. Prevents dropping-and-breaking.

Gone and swerved off-topic there.


To recap, then: The pending cell phone ban is stupid, dumb and might get you killed should a carjacker attempt to murder you with a gun that goes "doof-doof."

How many naughts in a billion then, I was surprised to see this on the front page of a major UK news medium as it is shown
here There has always been confusion between what the British and the Americans call a billion. In the UK, a billion is 1,000,000,000,000 (10^12) but in the US it is only 1,000,000,000 (10^9). In the US, the name represents the number of groups of three zeros after the initial 1,000 - so that a billion is two groups of three after the 1,000, or 1,000,000,000 - a trillion is three groups of three, and a decillion is ten groups of three zeros after the 1,000 (a total of 33 zeros). The US centillion is therefore 1,000 followed by 300 zeros (or a total of 303).

Ten years ago in 1994, I wrote to Sir Arthur C Clarke about a device to store phone numbers in, and this was sort of newish then but the thing that struck me it had an acoustic coupling so when you had selected a number it relayed it via a speaker acoustically a certain series of beeps! even..Well Clarke replied .."Yes, that was the device I had in mind. The first small step to "Beam me up, Scotty..." 17th Sept 1994..
