This is another gem that I got from a stumble. It's from one of those things that appeared in a 1950 issue of Popular Mechanics and was attempting to describe what life would be like in 2000.
However I am not a hamster, not only did they miss the mark by quite a bit but the boys in 1950 that wrote this stuff ought to be thankful that we haven't invented time travel yet because I'm sure they'd be surprised by a bunch of angry modern day career women showing up to suggest where they could store their shiny brand new antique festool jigsaw. I'm quite sure they'd probably insist on "storing" it turned on and plugged in.
Personally, I've never thought plastic was all that comfortable.
