1980s calculator watch

Around 1986, I owned this very exact same calculator watch. I thought I was the coolest 6th or 7th grader around. It’s crazy to see so many of them for sale on ebay. It’s almost crazier to see them selling for $18. I want one. I’ll pay 6 bucks for one.

I can’t tell you how many times I need to do calculations. The past couple years I’ve been using Google for my calculator. Do you think any of these watches have google on them?

Anyway, I always thought the geeks in school with the calculator watches were super cool

I remember wanting one of these in the good old days. Problem was that on tests, calculators were not allowed so I didn’t want to have to take off the watch. I got a casio data bank instead that stored phone numbers. Didn’t have many numbers in it- maybe just my own home. Nowadays, I believe kids can use calculators and the basics are being lost. Now I sound like some grumpy old man. I even went to a bar and left because the music was too loud.

Ned, I too have left bars that play the music too loud. What’s the point? I want to hear the people I’m talking with. Now sometimes I have used a calculator watch in a bar. No joke. Although I have not used one to pick up any ladies. You know those emails where it tells you to enter some numbers and then it has you divide multiply add and other stuff and then you end up with the same number? I wanted to make something that would somehow result in me getting the phone number of whom I was talking… Read more »

I am still waiting for google and yahoo to index this page, so it will become the only webpage in the world with the phrase I had in my previous comment about how to pick up women with a calculator watch.
