72. The gyroscope has been employed by Mr. Louis Brennan
with striking ingenuity and success, to ensure the

discussion on the subject, is given by Mr. H. Cousins
in the issue of Engineering for Nov. 21st, 1913,
and following numbers.

Big Bertha Thing francis
To my brother-in-law Francis (RIP),
who I once called "as daft as a brush."
To his everlasting credit,
he replied "I know."
The greatest compliment,
my wife ever paid me,
was to say, that I did not hold a grudge.
Net surfers do not hold grudges,
but they are a bit short on victim support,
whichever side the victim comes from.
