Hello Earthling

British Space Station astronaut/test pilot seems to have a wee problem with telephones:
From The Verge:
Picture this: it's Christmas Eve, and for some reason you weren't able to reunite with your family. Maybe you had to work, maybe your flight was canceled. You've been waiting for them to call you so you can talk to them all on speaker phone, so when the phone rings you rush to answer it. Giddy with anticipation, you expect to hear a Christmas cacophony — but instead you hear the voice of a lone man. He asks, "Hello, is this planet Earth?"

Great, a prank call. Who even makes those anymore? What's next, a question about Prince Albert?...MORE
