Discounting hobos who prefer Yellow Pages brand toilet paper, when's the last time anyone entered a phone booth?
Fifteen years ago, it was awesomely convenient that New York City had a hundred-qaudrillion pay phones on pretty much ever street corner, just ask Colin Farrell (above)!
Now they're useless! Anachronistic! Abandoned temples to worship forgotten hardline Gods!
Or at least they were, LOLz!!
NYC officials have embraced the environmentally friendly philosophy of "adaptive reuse," and instead of wasting resources to remove all these phone booths, they've decided to transform them into something useful — WiFi hotspots!!
Hooray for recycling! It's adorbsies!!
And high-fives for New York!!
