This day in history

Today is the 165th anniversary of Samuel Morse sending the first telegraph message, "What hath God wrought?"

With that, I would like to share this semi-relevant quote from Albert Einstein: "You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

You have to love a man who is so off-the-charts smart and also can bring a smile!

I'm pulling a cat's tail right now. Is he meowing over there?
