I remember the telegraphs! When the movie "Titanic" came out, I remember the scene from the engine room when the bridge rings for full astern from full ahead as the engineers are drinking tea. Hey, you are in the middle of the Atlantic, you aren't necessarily all that tuned in as you might be while maneuvering in harbor. I had that "deer in the headlights" look a couple of times when caught with my pants down, as it were.
