Years ago (disco was in) I got curious about the phone number listed
in Michael Crichton's "Andromeda Strain". So, I went to a payphone and
dialed it. I was rather shocked to hear a couple rings, then a female
voice "Military Emergency" At that point, I hung up the pay phone and
went elsewhere.

This payphone was on a military base. I never had it get anywhere
from a civilian phone.
