Edison patent

In 1876, Thomas A. Edison was issued three patents for "Duplex Telegraphs" (U.S. No. 178,221; -3). These were for "an Improvement in Duplex Telegraphs" which enable a transmitted signal be sent on the same wire that could be receiving a signal. In patent 178,222, Edison describes "A balanced battery is used for transmitting when the balance is disturbed. An electromagnet is used, through which both the received and transmitted pulsations pass, and the connections are made so that the action of the current sent is balanced, while that coming from the distant station is operative, to work a balanced relay and local circuit or sounder."

God is watching

One Sunday a priest announced he was passing out minature crosses made of palm leaves. "Put this cross in the room where your family argues most," he advised. "When you look at it, the cross will remind you that God is watching."

When the parishoners were leaving church, a woman walked up to the priest, shook his hand and said, "I'll take five."
