If I wreck this thing I’m done for.”

- A senior data visualization engineer at Netflix thinks she has come up with a better grocery store receipt.
- This video was uploaded to YouTube back in December but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. Two 17-year-old boys are challenged to dial a phone number on a rotary phone in less than four minutes.
- I love the encouragement from his peers.
