    Re: Slide rules in movies

    Sliderule appear prominently in my One Man Show, Dr'G's Empirical Compound. One of my pals who is more familiar with pop music told me about Sam Cooke's line from "Don't Know Much About History"

    Don't know much algebra
    Don't know what a slide rule is for
    which doesn't even RHYME, fer cryin out loud!
    Does this count as a minus one appearance of a slide rule in pop culture?
