If you are “mechanically inclined and can hold tools” – well, just turn the page. Don’t send away for the amazing electronic kit. But once you begin to look at the ad, you cannot turn away! You must write to the so-called Christy Trades School and get a “free BIG book.”
Soon you will have a free BIG head. After that, there will be a free BIG trip to another dimension.
So it doesn’t matter how much money you’re going to be making. Because soon, you will be traveling to the planet Zircon, where all the other part-time electrical technicians have been taken, their heads now programmed to work for Zirconic domination of the galaxy.
That is, in fact, why they say there is a need for electricians on planet Earth. Didn’t it occur to you to wonder why? Too late now. Sci-fi Charlie Brown wants you to join him in rigging up that – electrical thing he has on the table. I don’t know what it is, but I am worried.
This startling ad is from Startling Detective magazine (1964).
