Last but not least, telescopes.

Quote:Yes, the Cold War. At ten, I imagined a "commie" riding the Sputnik with bombs in hand ready to drop on the U.S. It truly was a frightening time with all the "duck and cover" propaganda telling us we could survive a nuclear attack. I remember doing these "excersises" in school. Imagine, surviving a nuclear attack by pulling a blanket over your head while at a picnic! When kids today ask me if we could survive a nuclear attack and how to do it, I tell them it's easy. Just go to the roof of the tallest building in town, turn your back towards the nearest city and bend over forwards, placing your head between your legs and proceed to kiss your but goodbye
