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)

A blonde, a brunette, and a redhead all work at the same office for a female boss who always goes home early. "Hey girls," says the brunette, "Let's go home early tomorrow. She'll never know." The next day, they all leave right after the boss does. The brunette gets some extra gardening done, the redhead goes to a bar, and the blonde goes home to find her husband having sex with the female boss! She quietly sneaks out of the house and returns at her normal time. "That was fun," says the brunette. "We should do it again sometime." "No way," says the blonde. "I almost got caught!"
