    Lt. Bradshaw- ” Yeah, don’t leave food under your bed. ”

    Nick- ” Same ol, same ol.”

    Lt. Bradshaw- ” And don’t spend all day on the cell phone. ”

    Nick- ” You can have a phone in your cell?”

    Lt. Bradshaw- ” And don’t blow all your allowance on tech stocks. ”

    Nick- ” He must mean vacume tube futures. ”

    On that MIG, were those nano vacuum tubes? And then vacuum tubes don’t do real well with vibration and pressure changes, maybe better at radiation than transistors but I’m not sure about electrical surges.

    Thats what the Americans found on the MIG 29 they inspected. They thought the then Soviets were backward until they remembered vacuum tubes could resist the effects of a nuclear blast the crafty Soviets. Well it’s back to the future then what’s old is new again.
