Otis patent

In 1852, Elisha Graves Otis was issued a U.S. patent for a “Railroad-Car Truck and Brake” (No. 8973). Otis is well-known for his invention of the safety elevator in the same year, which used automatic braking devices to arrest the fall of an elevator car if its supporting cable broke. His inventiveness also spanned making a turbine waterwheel (1848), a steam plow (1857), rotary oven (1858) and steam elevator (1861). In his patent for the railroad car brake, he described a way to link rods running the length of each car in a train that activated brakes, and connected with compensating joints to the next car's rod. Thus a single lever could apply all brakes simultaneously. He also described his idea to construct guards enclosing wheels on the trucks, such that if a wheel or axle broke, the car would safely remain on the tracks.«

An Irishman is walking along the beach one day, and he sees a bottle laying in the sand. He picks it up and starts to brush it off, and out pops a genie.
The genie says, "Since you have freed me from the bottle, I will grant you three wishes."
The Irishman thinks for a moment and says, "I'm feeling a might thirsty, I think I'll be wishing for a pint of stout."
POOF! There is a pint of stout in his hand. He drinks it down, and starts to throw the bottle, when the genie says, "I'd look at that bottle again before I threw it if I were you." So he looks at the bottle, and it is magicaly filling back up with stout. The genie told him, "That is a magic bottle, and it will always fill back up after you finish it." The genie then asked, "What other two wishes can I grant for you?"
The Irishman looks at the bottle in his hand and says, "I'll be taking two more of these."
