You'll appreciate the comic
that appeared on page 59 of the February 1969 issue of Electronics World magazine.
It is consistent with the prevailing theme of the era where wives and girlfriends were
fairly oblivious to the meaning of technical endeavors of their husbands and boyfriends,
respectively (or not necessarily). The other comic from that edition is reflective of
the times as well, when a television was considered to be one of the essentials of modern
life. I was a pretty rotten kid, but I don't remember ever running away from home.

"My husband's in the aerospace industry. I'd like one of those Van
Allen radiation belts."
