Gotta love those primitive feline electrostatic generators. Without cat fur and sulfur balls we wouldn’t have the Van DeGraaff and we wouldn’t have xerography. The Haloid Company would not have existed, Xerox would not be a generic household name, and no one would have ever heard of Chester Carlson. Without him we wouldn’t have photocopiers, fax machines or laser printers. Without them we’d probably never have an alternative to crappy inkjet printers.
On top of all that, we wouldn’t have this electrically-charged edition of
The Overnight Open Thread.
