Booth?

Is that what you used to call a shirt pocket?

Mr. Modesto!

If you haven't mastered the ability to set that unit to vibrate, I'm going to have to ask you to leave the room for the rest of the class period!

But seriously....phone booths are not just a geezer remembrance any more:

Re: What do you think?

Without the phone booth we would not have Dr Who. I would advocate something like the cone of silence from "Get Smart" that would drop down over diners and movie goers.

The TARDIS is actually a Police Box, not a phone booth .

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Thanks for pointing out this major historical faux pas Bryan

It seems that this thread has run it's natural course, when we are talking about doing aikido in a shirt pocket

thanks to all the forum members for contributing to such a lively debate. Over to you guys for the next one.

regards

Police box is that something from the other side of the pond?

Re: What do you think?

Looks like who ever posted this video removed it. IT's a shame I showed it to a lot of people.

Re: What do you think?

New to the forum - tried your link to the video and it "has been removed by the user".
Did anyone save a copy for posting elsewhere?
