An early Alcoholics Anonymous member Clarence Snyder explained that one of the early mechanical calculators came with a sign for the operator which said:

Think….about what you are about to do.

Think….of what you are doing.

Think….of what you have done.

Clarence explained that some drunk had a bunch made up and sent out to the AA groups in early 1944-45.”
