Through three decades during the Industrial Revolution, Maudslay invented various important machines, but of these the metal lathe particularly noteworthy.

"How do you think you will do that?" said the other one. He proceeded toshow her...by climbing up to the rafters, and hanging upside down.
The boss walked in, saw the worker hanging from the ceiling, and asked himwhat on earth he was doing? "I'm a light bulb" answered the guy.
"I think you need some time off," said the boss. So, the man jumped downand walked out of the factory. The second worker began walking out too.The boss asked her where did she think she was going?
"Home. I can't work in the dark."
