I'd have given my right arm for this when I was 6.

I'd have given my right arm for this when I was 6. Of course, in 1959 there was no such thing as this. (A lot of research scientists would have given portions of their anatomies for this in 1959; this thing is comfortably more powerful than an IBM 7090, which was state of the art then. I think it cotains more disk space than existed in the world in 1959.)

Silly Putty turns 50.

Silly Putty turns 50. I suspect I'm older than most of you, and I grew up with Silly Putty, "The toy with only one moving part".
