ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
You are not going to get me to click through to the Bendix “obedience” site.
We all know why she’s posing next to that big piece of furniture, right?
Because she’s had one too many Manhattans and can’t stand up on her own.

“Makes Science Your Obedient Servant.” As any number of major Hollywood movies have proved, science is only obedient up to a vague point in the future, when it will learn to hate us and crave our destruction.
You can almost see the rage in some of those buses and planes.
Shortly after the photo shoot, she was murdered by her Garrard Record Changer.
The Garrard Record Changer. Always the appliance you’d suspect last.
You know, I always strike an elegant post when standing next to my huge radio.
Relatedly, Raymond Scott’s Manhattan Research includes a great spot for Bendix, “The Tomorrow People.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwaeGKuTpCc
“Science, you cheap whore.”
These old ads are gorgeous. The colors they used, the fonts, back when advertising was still glamorous. It is funny though how all the women are improbably posed, the children are maniacs and all the men well dressed.
John Romero will make science your obedient servant.
Science is my bitch.
My thoughts exactly. Needs to be ‘shopped to say “MAKE SCIENCE YOUR BITCH.”
