Slip Slidin' Away

<< < (3/3)

My brother (older than I am) keeps his slide rule in the space between the keyboard and the monitor on his desk because "it's quicker than the calculator" (which may mean that his fingers are growing stiff and awkward and no one has had the nerve to give him a big "senior" calculator).

My college still has the large classroom sized ones hanging up in a couple of locations, most likely because someone forgot to take them down, but I like the historical significance of them. 

I've thought about going to one of those websites that shows how to make one so I can have one for students who forget their calculator.  After trying to figure a slide rule out, I doubt they'd forget the calculator again.  The Evilness appeals to me.
