Pantomime- "Pantomime is the art of acting with gestures, using no words."
|In the late 70s, one may have recognized this mime as the famous and talented Marcel Marceau. |
These days, mimes are just annoying people that it has become socially acceptable to beat up.
Paramedic- "Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, and several other cities and their metropolitan areas have paramedic programs." Boy am I glad other big cities have caught on to this idea. San Diego, Phoenix, and even New York have paramedics now.
Phonograph- "An enlargement of the groove shows how the waves make the needle vibrate."
|I used to like seeing highly magnified images of the needle and groove. I liked knowing|
how a phonograph worked. Kids today probably just want to know what a phonograph is.
Physics- "Physics students learn basic physical principles in their laboratory work. This group is studying the concept of gyroscopic recession by observing a spinning bicycle wheel."
Prehistoric Animal- This is the opening picture for an extensive article on prehistoric animals. Since its such a big article, they splurged and printed this picture in color. Too bad the 70s concept of dinosaurs was so drab; this picture would have been pretty much the same in black and white.
|The caption for this picture even calls the big dino a Brontosaurus. Those don't exist.|
