Good Job, Brain! #4: Thomas Butt-Headison

Postby Karen » Mar 26th, 2012 @ 12:52am

We talk about the invention origins of some pretty weird as well as mundane everyday things. But the real star of this week's show is Thomas Edison and how big of an asshole he was. A BRILLIANT ASSHOLE. :twisted:

Also: pop quiz, etymology factoids, highly rated movies, top film quotes

I may have to update my avatar, for new G.J.B. episodes consistently go straight to the top of my podcast queue.

Speaking of Casablanca, the other day Yahoo posted a video about commonly misquoted lines, including a rather famous one from Casablanca. In fact, the line was even misquoted on your podcast.

http://news.yahoo.com/video/whoknew-191 ... 74300.html


As for me, my favorite movie is Lawrence of Arabia.
Other contenders include:
Hatari! (which means "Danger!" in Swahili)
Star Wars/The Empire Strikes Back/Return of the Jedi - trilogy

Favorite movie as a kid = Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

On a similar note to Karen's trivia about devices women shove in to their vaginas, vibrators were originally a medical device to treat hysteria.

Hysteria being a catch all term to describe a wide assortment of supposedly female ailments. One of the first (around 1860s) being a steam powered device called the Manipulator marketed at doctors who's wrists and hands were stressed from too many pelvic/vulvular/vaginal massages on their hysterical patients.

Drawing of the Manipulator.

However the Manipulator was large and expensive and about 30 years later an electromechanical vibrator that ran on batteries was beginning to be marketed as a still large but more portable alternative. Finally in 1899 the Vibratile was introduced as a household device and advertised in household magazines like the Sears Roebuck catalog in 1904.

Image
Yep, that's a woman using a vibrator on her hair and another to massage her back.

It was also one of the earliest domestic devices to incorporate electricity. Following closely after the tea kettle, fan, sewing machine, and toaster, along with being the first electromechanical device for personal care and preceded the electric vacuum and electric iron by a decade.

However in the 1920s the vibrator fell out of popularity when it began to be associated with porn and the sexual implications of the device being hard to ignore at that point.


Anyway can thank a case study about disguising technology in my engineering history class for that one.

Someone should go start a running tally of correct/incorrect answers to all the quiz sections. I wish I had this idea before I started listening. Maybe Karen or whoever the quizmaster of the section could start keeping score and adding/subtracting points and making an actual contest out of it. Maybe someone could make a hobby of keeping stats, charts and graphs (man I love infographics!) for future episode. I'm not enterprising enough to take the initiative but I thought I'd throw it out there.

You guys were talking about how dark the images are in The Godfather, and that was attributed a lot to the cinematographer, Gordon Willis who was given the nickname "The Prince of Darkness". He actually admitted that he went too far with making the film literally dark in The Godfather, Part II, specifically citing when Michael is talking to his mother about losing his family. I watched a documentary about cinematographers where his work was discussed relatively extensively, but I can't remember what it was called.

Gordon Willis also did the cinematography work on my favorite movie, Annie Hall.

EDIT: The documentary was called Visions of Light. It was pretty interesting.
