Incredibly, this is not an old ad encouraging you to nag your doc for a barbiturates prescription, but rather, a WWII-era Dupont anti-freeze ad.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
