TGIF; the weekend is just hours away. While you're waiting for the clock to get to quitting time, spend your final few minutes enjoying this triplet of electronics-themed comics that were in the February 1967 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. The page 37 comic would probably be one of the last featuring a self-service vacuum tube tester as solid state TVs and radios were rapidly replacing tube types. According to Wikipedia, the first Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) went into service in June of 1967 (in the UK). That means the comic on page 92 was - most likely - an unintentional preview into a world with ATMs in nearly every entertainment venue, bank building, grocery and department store, and even government establishments. Like with telephone cell towers, surveillance cameras, and hypodermic needles on San Francisco streets, ATMs are everywhere you look nowadays. In-home television servicemen who often confronted circumstances similar to the page 93 comic must have gotten a real kick out of that one. Many had seen far worse. I took the liberty of colorizing them.
