      I always thought that the electric chair was designed by Thomas Edison. I was wrong all these years, he just championed its use because it used AC, which Westinghouse was using, as an effort to convince people that Edison's DC power was safer.

      The dentist was Dr. Albert Southwick. He saw a drunk get electrocuted and thought it looked painless. He suggested its use to a New York legislator.

      Something to use whenever I get picked for " The Weakest Link".

      There is also one other part of the human body that cannot be licked by the owner of the body part, which is probably a good thing. [Eek!]
