Let’s put Cameron in a bullring and then release poor people into it until all that’s left are his cufflinks.
paulmcfruity said: But how’s that possible.
Telephones are powered by electricity, but not by the local electricity in your house. So, for example, if the power goes off in your house, the telephone still works.
To quote from somewhere else:
'Between your house and the phone company's office there is a dedicated pair of copper wires for your phone. Those wires are almost always buried, so ice storms and hurricanes will not cut them. The phone company supplies the power that your phone needs using your dedicated copper pair.
So even if the power goes out in your house, the phone still gets the power it needs through the phone line. And at the phone company office there is an extensive battery system, as well as a backup generator, tosupply power during a power failure. If the power goes out, the batteries and generators keep the office fully powered. Therefore, all of the phones connected to the office are fully powered as well.’
So a lot of houses had telephones before they actually had their own electricity wired in.
paulmcfruity said: THEY HAD CANDLES BACK THEN. And if they can use the telephone, they do have electricity. ;)
You don’t need electricity to have a telephone! Many houses had telephones while they were still running on candles and gas lamps. But candle or lamp wise, I don’t think they care either way. :)
[Paul:] ‘Well, anyway, today this woman came up to the car; she’d never go up to just anybody in the street and kiss them; I mean, she was about forty; she was just sort of talking to me and she suddenly grabbed hold of me and kissed me. I mean, I was definitely embarrassed. What is it that with anybody who has had this amount of publicity… ? It creates some sort of reaction which doesn’t have to do with sex or anything. They just say, “Look, there’s that person we’ve been reading about in our good-as-the-Bible Daily Express every day.” It’s like the royal family. You have to like them because you’ve read so much about them.’
‘Why?’ says John. ‘I didn’t like them even when I was little. I disliked having to stand, which sometimes I didn’t.’
‘Another thing,’ says Paul, ‘we get letters saying, “You probably won’t get this letter; it probably will never reach you”, and before they have started out on the letter they’re sure it will never reach you anyway. Letters that start out, “If you read this letter please read it to the end”. I mean, there’s no hope of us reading it as far as they’re concerned.’
‘Then there’s people like my cousin Stanley,’ says John, ‘who I admired as a boy because he had a car and a Meccano set; and, uh, now that I have, uh, made it he treats me as if I was royalty or something. It unnerves me; I mean, he’s thirty and I’m young and it’s, uh, rather embarrassing from my boyhood hero.’
‘But maybe it’s only human,’ says Paul. ‘I mean, I know that if one of us had gone up and shaken Cliff’s hand only two years ago we would have leapt home to the fellas – “I’ve met him! I’ve met him, there you go!” – and we would have been like that…’
John: ‘Even though we never bought any of his records.’
Paul says, ‘I remember the first time we did meet him. We were in the business and Cliff and the Shadows invited us to this great kind of party. I mean all I could say was, “Oh, wait till I tell the girls back home.” Mind you, I knew it was a soft thing to say…’
‘Yeah, you’re supposed to make up things like, uh, “What a great job you’re doing in the industry”,’ said John.
Paul: ‘Because we’ve never been fans of Cliff’s.’
John: ‘We’ve always hated him. He was everything we hated in pop. But when we met him we didn’t mind him at all. He was very nice. Now when people ask us if he’s a bit soft we say no. We still hate his records but he’s really very nice.’"
