    Ever wake up dreaming about your boss hammering you, with your panties at your knees?

    IIRC, there was a nightmare inducing typewriter in The Naked Lunch.

  4.  Bosses don’t need hammers. They inflict fear by existing.

    The Royal pictured at the end is my mother’s typewriter, that she still uses.  I learned to type on that machine.  It feels like the throw on the keys is about an inch, although I’m sure it’s just because I’m used to modern VT52s and suchlike ;)

    My mom doesn’t use modern electric typewriters or computers, because she forgets to tone it down once she gets flying and the keys shatter.

  6. The Teletype model 33 had a stroke of about an inch and a key force of one pound. RSI was unknown among its users. Only when low-force, low-travel keyboards were introduced did carpal tunnel and other syndromes show up.
