Introduction: Thomas Edison and the light bulb
Thomas Edison, a famous inventor, was making a “light bulb”. It took a whole team of men 24 hours straight to put just one together. When Edison was finished with one light bulb, he gave it to a young boy helper, who nervously carried it up the stairs. Step by step he cautiously watched his hands, obviously frightened of dropping such a priceless piece of work. Guess what? The poor young fellow dropped the bulb when he reached the top of the stairs. It took the entire team of men twenty-four more hours to make another bulb. Finally, tired and ready for a break, Edison was ready to have his bulb carried up the stairs. And who do you suppose he trusted with the task of carrying the bulb upstairs this time? He gave it to the same young boy who dropped it the first time.
