    the zinc/cadmium oxide in the coins produce an electromagnetic field that can tap into cell phone towers, but only in Nebraska and Pakistan. However this electromagnetic field will cause rats to eat your left knee because of the frequency of the electromagnectic field (23432.783 Hertz). This will also lead to birth defects such as field hockey sticks for arms, and no genitalia and/or liver.

    Anything recording numbers notes. It's a poor mans Blackberry

    aaahhh now i understand...

    I don't think a Altoids tin has a mini keyboard...

    Why not one of those really small pencils- doesn't need to be sharpened.

    You mean mechnical pencil?

    Oops, my mistake, i meant to write really small pens, sorry. You normally buy them for keeping in a small notepad, or some use similar to this. Not that pencils are bad, this pen would just be way smaller.

    gotya, i understand - but pencils are waterproof, and u can write upside down also.

    While talking on a pay phone?

    yes, payphones are comenly exposed to outside weather, there not always in booths!

    hahaha I was referring more to the upside down part, but fair enough, pencil it is.

    The upside down bit was more for humour. But then, there is those few occasions when gravity get reversed.

    I find it so annoying when gravity gets reversed while on the phone!

    i kno, i kno, your just like there trying not to fly off into space, and those metal cables on the handsets never hold.

    They really need to make payphones anti-gravity proof!

    I know, it's so annoying with the change falls into the sky when it's change time and gravity reverses!
