Scientist's Ball

| Hi Everyone!
|       Ok.  The list is back up again!  Due to the tremendous help of 
| Nicholas Barnard, the list is now operated using list software!  
| Nicholas, here's a big 'THANK YOU!'.  The other people who provided
| assistance are Randall J. Million, Paul Navarre, ShowBunny, Eric Brager,
| David Thorburn-Gundlach, Steve Willoughby and Larry Hall.
|       Anyway, here we go back to our regularly scheduled humour.

Replying to an invitation to a Scientist's Ball :
Pierre and Marie Curie were radiating enthusiasm;
Einstein thought it would be relatively easy to attend;
Volta was electrified and Archimedes, buoyant at the thought;
Ampere was worried he wasn't up to current research;
Ohm resisted the idea at first;
Boyle said he was under too much pressure;
Edison thought it would be an illuminating experience;
Watt reckoned it would be a good way to let off steam;
Stephenson thought the whole idea was loco;
Wilbur Wright accepted, provided he and Orville could get a flight;
Dr Jekyll declined - he hadn't been feeling himself lately;
Morse's reply: "I'll be there on the dot. Can't stop now- must dash"
