O_________O

The phrase "DIAL the number" came from Rotary phones.

It was a disk you dialed.

Stick your finger in the hole above the number you want and dial the wheel until it stopped and then let go. The wheel would wind back to where it started and you went onto the next number...

Oh.

Well, you learn something new everyday!

Don't shoot yourself, you just educated a poor soul like me. ;)

LOL! I'm as amazed as you!

And don't forget the phrase "Don't touch that dial!" Completely antiquated now.

Heh, I'd love to give my students a quiz this year that asks them if they know where these phrases come from...
