Dinosaurs, Movies That Aren't Sequels and Land Lines

Second, about phone booths. When is the last time you saw a phone booth. When's the last time you actually used a phone booth? What if Superman were to show up today? Where would he change?
I guess he would have to duck into a Starbucks or a cell phone retail store. Those are everywhere!
