The Blind Man Is Here
A Nun was taking a shower one day and she heard the door bell ring, she yelled "Who is it?"
And the person ringing the door bell yelled, "I'm the blind man."
So the Nun got out of the shower and wrapped her hair in a towel, she didn't bother putting a towel around herself because the person behind the door was blind.
She opened the door and said, "What do you want?", and the man said, "I'm here to check your blinds."
Oil pipelineIn 1865, the first underground oil pipeline was laid between Oil Creek and Pithole, Pa. Samuel Van Syckel, who came to the creek in 1864 with some money hoping to make more, had handled quantities of oil produced at Pithole, several miles from a shipping point, only to see his profits eaten up by the tyranny of teamsters. With determination, he built a mostly buried, two-inch pipeline with three relay pumps, 5.5 miles between the wells and the railroad. Carrying eighty barrels of oil an hour, the day that the Van Syckel pipe-line began to run oil, a revolution began in the business. The teamsters turned out in fury, digging up and cutting the pipe so that the oil would be lost. It was only by stationing an armed guard that they were held in check.[Image: Oil Creek, Pa., 1865]
