Does he have an AOL or CompuServe account?
Checking email without a computer? El was decades ahead of his time.
Reminds me of a Homer Simpson line I always loved:
“Hey, they got the Internet on computers now!”
I can’t wait to get one of those computer interface chips in my head. It will be All Internet, All the Time. (Bring on the cute kitten videos.)

The brain is the best computer, however, I suspect his processor is a bit flaky. I’m thinking his RAM is corrupt as well. Perhaps a restart is necessary.
He was well ahead of his time.
When I was running my ISP service I had a lady call me up one day and wanted to know how much an email address was. When I tried to explain to her how much a dial-up account was then included an email address she told me she didn’t have a computer but simply wanted an email address. I asked her how was she going to get her emails she asked, “can’t you print them out and mail them to me”. I told her that we did not provide that service but maybe one on the other ISP’s did.
Mental illness sure is a hoot…
“I don’t think science knows.”
These two are the result of the ‘brilliant’ decision to close all the mental hospitals rather then reform them. Their lame excuse was, ‘we have wonderful drugs that the mentally ill will take and we can reinsert them into society’. Well guess what, mentally ill people don’t care for the side effects of those drugs.
Be careful with that “Reply All” button, Elmont!
I myself get the internet on my teeth. It can get a little confusing during cleaning by the hygienist.
I was going to say give me some of whatever he’s on, but this trip is way too close to my reality…
Free: Mind-Wi, with NoTooths.
Some people pick up radio broadcasts. Others, wi-fi bitstreams.
So it’ll be at least another week before we get back to “Nothing but Orphans,” then. Okay.
