Today in 1876 Alexander Graham Bell uttered the words that changed the world, and Lily Tomlin

Alexander Graham Bell

Alexander Graham Bell

OK, maybe it wasn’t the words themselves, but the technology he invented. When he uttered “Mr. Watson — come here — I want to see you” he started the ball rolling on one of the greatest inventions ever.

A little blurb from the Timelines.com website:

On March 10, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell conducted a successful experiment with the telephone. This breakthrough, during which he uttered his famous directive to his assistant, Thomas Watson, is recorded in the March 10 entry of his Lab Notebook.

As big of a day as this is, since I first heard Lily Tomlin’s comedy routine about Alexander Graham Bell, it’s completely changed the story for me. You can watch/listen to it here.
