I’ve Got Your Number

Posted by laura on Jul 01 2010 | Fun

Ok, raise your hand if you like Mythbusters. We’re all fans here – it’s a tasty blend of curiosity and craziness with a dash of scientific method. Plus it’s good to support your local team.

Well, the other night we saw the episode where the myth was if you interleave the pages of two phone books, you can’t pull the phone books apart. If you haven’t seen it, the whole episode is fun and surprising (at least it sure was for me). Turns out I have a new appreciation for phone books. Scratch that – turns out I have an appreciation for phone books.

If you’re the type who likes to read the ending first – this clip on You Tube will show you how it all turned out.

The best part was that we got to the end of the show, there was a pause, and Hot Wheels asked, “What’s a phone book?”

  1. What’s a phone number?

    Since all the numbers I need are available from phones and other devices, the part of my brain that use to remember phone numbers is now being used to save keyboard shortcuts and the names of funny YouTube clips.

    What’s a phone?

    I only communicate via email, sms, spoken word, twitter, facebook, linkedin, morse code, interpretive dance, rebus, and telepathy.
