# "Phone. Home"

How does it take to make this call?

How long would be the telephone number if we took 10 minuts to dial it?

• I tried that data was as realistic as possible. The movie E.T. is set in North California. I searched the prefix of Yreka, a town in North California which has a forest zone. The landing scenes from the movie are in a forest zone. The E.T. phone number is based on the first digits of number $$e$$.
• A possible generalizatin would be using old phones (with rotary dial), in which we spend more time dialing 9 than dialing 1.
