How bizarre. How off the wall. Like John's shoes.

This is amazing, the possibilities are endless. Just think you can communicate with other people on the other side of the world. Look out for this in various forms in a home near you over the next decade. I am using special powers but i think some of the inventions that might come from this will be called the Telephone, and the other may be called the Internet. Don't quote me on this! I am using the very same magical powers that Paul St George used.

I don't know. I'm stickin' with my trusted soup cans on a string. String is innovative these days. They can cut it the length of the ocean no problem. Why change?

Bein' ol' fashioned an' all... I'm going to have to agree with the Colonel here. Soup cans and string have been good enough for hundreds of thousands of years. They're good enough for me.

Wow...how much of my tax money went to that?

ETA: I doubt the artist paid for ALL of it himself...

The world resources of tin are in sharp decline lets face it we could all be using carrier pigeon very soon, or buy the flash Motornokia MXR 3000 you can make a coffee and even transport yourself into different country's, but will it make a simple phone call? No!

Zero. The $787,000 bill was footed by British government grants and private sponsorhip.
