    Robert Kearns Is Dead!!

    That's right everybody the inventor of the intermittent windshield wiper is dead. You know just the other day I was using my wipers and I wondered, boy, who invented the wiper that moves intermittently. He was a latter day Da Vinci, in the area of intermittent wipers that is.

    Feel free to discuss at will.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    I heard his condition was on and off towards the end.

    That sunova. . . wouldn't license his invention to Toyota, so I have no intermittent wipers. I have no sympathy for him. He turned to evil long ago.

    I swear I'm not making this up, his daughter commented that the misty conditions on the day of his funeral were perfect for intermittent wipers

    Look it up, I swear
    Something about him reminds me of my older brother, Rex.

    I saw that in the article I got this from Mabs. It's almost as if the heavens were crying.

    Re: Robert Kearns Is Dead!!

    Was he also responsible for the glasses Elton John wore that had winshield wipers on them? I remember that at my first job, we had a raffle, and there was a pair of sunglasses with wiper blades on them, which I did not win.

    BTW, I have intermittent windshield wipers on my car! My son has to remind me to use them.

    Although I've never met him, I have an Uncle who is suppossedly a whiz in Detroit, and long ago was the inventor of the "smart stick", I hope he was of some inspiration to Mr. Kearns, and let me just say that when the day comes and my Uncle passes on, I hope he..."cruises" into Heaven!
