Have you ever noticed that the layout of numbers on your phone is different than it is on a calculator or a computer keyboard?

The middle row is the same, and the zero is usually on the bottom on both, but the upper and lower rows are transposed.

Keyboard or phone?

7 8 9
4 5 6
1 2 3
0


Spoiler (click to reveal)
Keyboard.

The phone would be:

1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
0

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

So mobile phones are evil versions of computer keyboards from the mirror universe?

There dismay took them, for at the gate was a guard of whom no tidings had yet gone forth.

Swiftly the wolf grew, until he could creep into no den, but lay huge and hungry before the feet of Morgoth. There the fire and anguish of hell entered into him, and he became filled with a devouring spirit, tormented, terrible, and strong.

Then swiftly all his inwards were filled with a flame of anguish, and the Silmaril seared his accursed flesh. Howling he led before them, and the walls of the valley of the Gate echoes with the clamour of his torment.

The two main ways elevator buttons are laid out:

This one (most common) is sort of like the calculator logic:


Whereas this one (less common) says, well, if we had a five story building there would be a single row of numbers going up, but with more stories we have to start over at the bottom:



For elevators with two doors, it can get fun:

Not Australian. I grew up with a rotary phone, and although it was that colour, the dial was arranged exactly as the green one before it (and so were all the others I have ever seen).
