    I can’t hear you, my tubes are clogged. Maybe I’ll get your message tonight at 10PM when there is less stuff dumped in the tubes.

    In defense of the Tube comparison. I was listening to engines of our ingenuity on NPR. It was about the rapid message systems using pressurized tubes that ran for over 100 miles in large cities all over Europe. The whole thing makes sense if you look at the fact that it was there to provide rapid communication. Not unlike what we have with the internet today.
