    So was human fat acting as a lubricant or something for arthritis? As for the telephone, that REALLY burned holes in your pockets (of course it still does).

    The first transatlantic phone service was by erratic short-wave radio (no privacy) The first transatlantic cables (apx 1870) were capable only of very slow telegraph.Short-wave radio was the only option until 1956 when a cable capable of voice was laid. It was to be used until satellites could fill the gap. (Last I heard, the cable is still in use after several repairs)See “Voice Across the Sea” Arthur C Clark
