Road locomotive patented

In 1802, Richard Trevithick took out his first patent. It was for the first full sized road locomotive. He had demonstrated it to the public on 24 Dec 1801 with his cousin Andrew Vivian at the controls. It successfully carried a number of men up Beacon Hill, an event commemorated by the old Cornish song “Going up Camborne Hill” and marked by Trevithick's statute which stands outside Camborne library, gazing up that hill. By February 1804 Trevithick had the first locomotive running at the Penydarn ironworks in South Wales. It travelled over nine miles at a speed of five mph, and pulled a ten ton load, five wagons and 70 men.

I was at my bank today waiting...

I was at my bank today waiting in a short line. There was just one lady in front of me, an Asian lady, who was trying to exchange yen for dollars. It was obvious she was a little irritated. She asked the teller, "Why it change? Yesterday, I get two hunat dolla of yen. Today I only get hunat eighty? Why it change?" The teller shrugged his shoulders and said, "Fluctuations." The Asian lady says, "Fluc you white people too!"
