Three scientists were working late one evening. As they worked away, an elderly janitor was mopping the labratory floor.
One of the scientists then announced to his collegues that he had given a lot of thought to man's greatest invention.

The other two scientists raised up from their work and asked him what he thought that invention would be?
The first scientist said, "Well, it's really quite clear. The greatest invention by man is the Telescope"

Incredulously, one of the other two scientists asked, "What in hell makes you think the telescope is man's greatest invention?"
To which the first said, "Well, it's obvious to me. With a telescope to his eye a man on earth can peer into outer space, see
all the planets and stars and muse about the creation of the universe."

The second scientist then said, "You are wrong, my friend. Man's greatest invention is the microscope"
With that statement, the third scientist asked, "What makes you feel that the microscope is man's greatest invention?

To that, the second scientist said, "With a microscope a man can see down to the smallest particles of matter, he can study
every living creature on earth and, with a microscope, he can track the causes and cures for diseases"

Scoffing, the last scientist said, "You two are both dead wrong. The greatest invention is the oscilliscope. With an oscilliscope
a man can look definitively at frequencies, sounds and any other radiating or oscillating entity and is able to control the finite
aamount of energy needed to perform very critical tests".

Hearing all this, the elderly janitor stopped mopping the floors, stood up and leaned on the handle of his mop. He said, "I
have been listening to you all discuss man's greatest invention and I do not agree with those that you each have said is the
greatest. Actually" he continued, "the greatest invention of man is the thermos bottle.

The three scientists looked at each other and broke out in loud laughter. "The thermos bottle, you say?", "How, sir, can you
possibly believe that the thermos bottle is the greatest invention by man?", "What drives you to believe that the thermos bottle
is even in a class with the other inventions we have been discussing?".

With that the elderly janitor said: "Well, with a thermos bottle, you can put something hot in it and it stays hot". He continued
saying, "If you put something cold in it, it stays cold, and that makes the thermos bottle the greatest invention in the world".

One of the scientists said "How could that possibly make the thermos bottle the greatest of man's inventions?"

The elderly janitor drew himself up to his full 5'8" height, stood erect for a moment and asked: "How do it know?"
