I was told that there is a tool for every job... it's true.  I've got friends that find certain pieces of equipment somewhat threatening. Not me, as I get older I say work smarter, and not harder.  Man has made many technological advancements over the years, radio, computers, microwave ovens, and vibrators. Thank you Mortimer Granville.

There's a new movie called "Hysteria", and it's about Mortimer Granville.

Mortimer is a very important man in history... because in 1880, he patented the ELECTROMECHANICAL VIBRATOR!

The movie stars Hugh Dancy, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rupert Everett, among others, and it looks pretty funny.

(History Lesson: The first vibrators were actually looked upon as Medical Devices.  The title of this movie, "Hysteria", is in reference to a condition attributed to women in Victorian times.)

(Symptoms included, quote, "Faintness, nervousness, insomnia, fluid retention, heaviness in abdomen, muscle spasm, shortness of breath, irritability, loss of appetite for food or sex, and a tendency to cause trouble.")

(Before the vibrator or advanced knowledge of the female body came along, doctors would "cure" hysteria by performing PELVIC MASSAGES... which just means exactly what you think.)

(It wasn't thought to be a sexual act... IT WAS MEDICINE!)
