For those of you old enough to remember the ASR-33 Teletype:

"Some girls hug and some girls kiss
And SOME girls like to go like this..."
<UPPERCASE><lowercase><UPPERCASE><lowercase><UPPER CASE><lowercase><UPPERCASE><lowercase><UPPERCASE>< lowercase><UPPERCASE><lowercase> [repeat, ad infinitum]



For this to really make sense, you have to know that uppercase and lowercase were control codes sent over the wire. They caused the teletype to move its printhead UP <for uppercase> or DOWN <for lowercase>, regardless of whether any other characters were sent. So the teletype's print head would make a terrible racket as it went UPdownUPdownUPdown...

I don't remember the ASR-33 having lower case (the ones DEC sold anyway); although the ASR-35 did, it cost a lot more.

I was probably older than I should have been when I realised why plugs were always male and sockets always female... It was before the days of RSMA abominations.

Oops, that should be RPSMA abominations

The teletype I remember could well have been an ASR-35, rather than a -33. It was in my Dad's office at home when I was 6. I believe that I've mentioned learning to do arithmetic on it (via the Arpanet from University of Utah to a computer at BB&N in the Boston area). So my memory of the specific model number's a bit hazy.
