Power vacuum cleaner

In 1902, (?) the first power-driven vacuum cleaner was built by Hubert Cecil Booth (1871-1955) of London, England. In 1901, Booth, devised a filter bag system that made commercial vacuum cleaners practical. A vacuum cleaner pump driven by a petrol or electric motor, sucked air through fabric which caught the dust. Though effective, Booth's machines were so bulky, they required two workers to operate them, one to maneuver the refrigerator-sized vacuum chamber and another to wield the suction hose. An early use of Booth's machine was to clean the great blue coronation carpet under the throne at Westminster Abbey for the coronation of Edward VII. (30 Aug 1901, U.K. patent number 17,433)

Difference between hypothetical and reality

A little boy goes up to his father and asks: “Dad, what's the difference between hypothetical and reality?”

The father replies, “Well son, I could give you the book definitions, but I feel it could be best to show you by example. Go upstairs and ask your mother if she'd have sex with the mailman for $500,000.”

The boy goes and asks his mother: “Mom, would you have sex with the mailman for $500,000?”

The mother replies, “Hell yes I would!”

The little boy returns to his father. “Dad, she said ‘Hell yes I would!'”

The father then says, “OK, now go and ask your older sister if she'd have sex with her principal for $500,000.”

The boy asks his sister, “Would you have sex with your principal for $500,000?”

The sister replies: “Hell yes I would!”

He returns to his father. “Dad, she said ‘Hell yes I would!'”

The father answers, “OK, son, here's the deal: Hypothetically, we're millionaires, but in reality, we're just living with a couple of whores.”
