    That is pretty amazing when you think about it, isn't it? I can't imagine the mind that came up with the idea of the first sewing machine. "Brilliant" doesn't begin to describe him.

    Elias Howe actually came up with the idea from a nightmare in which cannibals were after him with spears. Each spear had a hole in the pointy end, to hold thread.

    And people think MY dreams are odd!
