Twelve ministers were on their way to a conference when their plane hit severe turbulence. One of them immediately called over a flight attendant. Wanting to help her stay calm, he said, “Please tell the pilot that everything will be all right because there are twelve extremely religious men on board.”
A few minutes later, the flight attendant came out of the cockpit and told the minister, “The pilot said that although he was pleased to learn that we have twelve holy men on board, he would still rather have just one good engine.”

The Flashmatic

In 1955, Zenith introduced a TV remote control system called the Flashmatic, which used four light-sensitive cells mounted in the corners of the TV cabinet. By shining a flashlight into it, one cell raised the volume, another lowered it, and the other two changed the channel. Only problem: The cells couldn’t distinguish between a flashlight and other light sources—like lamps or sunlight—so channels would often change without warning.
