Thought For The Day

    The Prisoner is hospitalized after having had a very nasty experience with the Guardian. Then he’s invited by a doctor to have a medical, after all the after effects of being suffocated into unconsciousness can be pretty nasty. The Prisoner is strongly advised to have a medical, after all it’s for his own good. But what kind of medical is it, when all the doctor does it check the man’s heart? It’s not a thorough medical at all. The doctor then programmes the computer probably with some basic fact’s, and out pops a computer printout card diagnosing that the patient is absolutely fit! How is the doctor able to read, or at least interpret the content of that printout card?

Be seeing you


  1. It's just a matter of practice, David. Each character consists of a combination of punched holes. Usually, the characters are printed in the top line of the punched card as can be seen here:

      I should think it would take a great deal of practice! I still don't see how he did it, unless it was interpretation!
