From Detective #267.
You young 'uns have probably heard how big and unwieldy things were before your fancy mp3 players and such, but I don't think you can really appreciate just how honking big things were.
Observe the tape player:
And the record player:
Yup. Records were big enough to stand on, and you could swing across a room using your average tape player. Even toting a Walkman around required renting a U-Haul. You kids today, what with your tiny music devices and canned sandwiches:
Hey, kids! Test your level of bigotry! (tm?)
I think just printing that chart was a little disturbing, but what do I know? Maybe I should have a can of sandwich and think about it.
See you tomorrow!
