About The Telephone

First discovered by Attila the Hun in the late 13th century, then perfected by Russian scientists during the Cold War, the telephone has seen a dramatic rise in popularity since messenger pigeons were banned by the United Nations in early 2002 and deemed as cruel to animals. More user-friendly than other advanced communication methods such as Morse code, smoke signals and the telegram, the telephone has provided people with a viable alternative to shouting and throwing rocks at windows in order to communicate. Currently, the telephone is used in over 7 countries, and seems to be gaining popularity rapidly.

Composed of a handset and a receiver, modern telephones feature advanced options such as 'caller ID', 'speaker phone' as well as a 'hold' button. If you haven't tried the telephone, give it a try as soon as possible, who knows how long this miracle of modern science will last!
