    Not quite. Needs to have the speaker unscrewed from the handset. That "off-hook" beeping was very annoying.

    The older phones were hardwired. No unplugging for most of them back then. As I recall, the 80's were when those RJ11 were slowly coming into use.

    "When the U.S. telephone industry was reformed to foster competition in the 1980s, the connection specifications became federal law, ordered by the FCC and codified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 47 CFR Part 68, Subpart F,[2] superseded by T1.TR5-1999.[3]"

    It's not a good thing for Japan , though it may be a good thing for you.

    Demographics point to larger population of older folks/pensioners & not enough young folks/workers to replace them.
    Less younger workers effects housing/job markets & more older folks will put a strain on the country's health care systems.
    Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has called for a "National Movement" which in part addresses the low birth rate by pushing for more children per family, and by helping older workers to stay in their jobs longer.

    Maybe we can convince the Japanese to "open their borders" to the tens of thousands of South & Central American immigrants.
    I'm sure Nancy will be more than willing to convince them of the benefits

    Same goes for Europe, except for the immigrants, especially the Muslimas. If the euros get 3 generations a century at 1.4 births per woman, and the Muslimas in europe get 4-5 generations per century at 4.2 births per woman, and if the Muslims don't assimilate, what will happen in Europe sooner or later?

    As I watched this I said to myself, ' no way anyone is actually that stupid ' …… then I scrolled down and watched the guy take the bowling ball to the nads.

    Overpopulation is bad no matter where it occurs.

    The only bad thing about declining population in Japan is the relative abandonment of the elderly. That happens with every population decline; the Japanese just happen to be a bit more public about it since their old folks live so long.
