John Harrison

Died 24 Mar 1776 at age 83 (born 24 Mar 1693).English horologist who invented the first practical marine chronometer, which enabled navigators to compute accurately their longitude at sea. He was prompted to begin this work after a huge reward was offered by the British government for new navigational tools to avoid further disasters at sea. John Harrison took on the scientific and academic establishment of his time and won the longitude prize through extraordinary mechanical insight, talent and determination.[DSB shows an uncertainty in the date of birth as 24 Mar(?) 1693. EB gives no specific day, just Mar 1693.]

A lawyer returns to his parked...

A lawyer returns to his parked BMW to find the headlights broken and his front bumper smashed.
There's no sign of the offending vehicle, but he's relieved to see that there's a note stuck under the windshield wiper.
The lawyer picks up the note. "Sorry. I just backed into your BMW. The witnesses who saw the accident are nodding and smiling at me because they think I'm leaving my name, address and other particulars. But I'm not."
