I don't see why not. Part of the idea is to learn useless (sometimes not so useless)stuff. You never even think about most of this stuff unless someone else thinks to ask, and then they probably have to look up the answer to begin with, or they just stumbled on it and thought "Wow, I didn't know that!"

Think of it as being educational. Always important.

Lets see if this is correct...

The battery eliminator was developed by Galvin Manufacturing Corporation and Motorola's First Product was the car radio.

That's it! Galvin was making the battery eliminator for two years before it became Motorola and began producing car radios.

Point for Lionel! thumbsup.gif
