My favorite "relic" is telephone terminology. We still say, "Your
phone's off the hook," "Hang up and redial." I've never even seen
an old-fashioned telephone where the receiver had to be hung up on a
hook, except on tv or in movies.
You just don't live in the right plac, Wab. We had one installed in our house in Nova scotia just three or four years ago.
Doesn't vitiate your thesis regarding relics, though.
