We can add Cuba to the list of people we can make fun of on the internet without worry of offending them. Right below the Amish.

why would we invade? They don't have nukes and they're not brown people. We may finally give up the stupid blockade first though

Many Cubans CAN access the internet, you know. Wikipedia says 12%. Although the speeds are dial-up bad, so most of the modern internet (which assumes high-speed connections) is just not worth going to.

Isn't it illegal for Pepco do business in Cuba?

/Zing!

Right below the Amish is another Amish. A Cuban is far less likely, although it's an entertaining visual that would mean that someone had some splainin' to do.

Also, they're using computers left over from the 1950s:

we will do business with Cuba when the castros are dead and not one second sooner. The only good commie bastid is a dead commie bastid.

Did we EVER get an explanation of what that submarine steering wheel thing was meant for?

If only those poor Cubans had guns, this could have all been avoided. Also, if they just did't roll those crepes so tightly.

What? You can't understand a simple man/machine interface? Think "a really BIG mouse wheel..." (OK, it needed a little redesign.)

True story:

Back at the Beginning, the tape drive capstan was a 400 lb. steel disk, spinning at about 5,000 rpm. (Tape was 2 inches wide, and about 5000 feet long.) It was impossible to go from file to file without overrunning, with a mechanical brake.

Electrical engineer: "Use an electromagnetic brake, I can stop it within a few degrees..."

One electromagnetic brake installation later...

"OK, rev it up to full speed!"

And he energized the magnet...

Inertia being the ultimate God, THE TAPE DRIVE RIPPED ITSELF OUT OF A CONCRETE FLOOR AND JUMPED 6 FEET IN THE AIR, SPINNING 90 DEGREES.and sailing across the lab.

It DID stop within a degree, tho...
