25. I could as well...
I entered the Navy in 1987 as an Electronics Tech and we spent a few months in school working on equipment that wouldn't have been state of the art in WWII. Tubes everywhere, and patch panels, old teletypes, you name it. I was shocked to find myself working on technology that I hadn't seen in the civilian world except in old pictures. I thought it was pretty lame at the time but it turns out that vacuum tubes are still better for some applications than their solid state counterparts.
