Lost in the moment
It takes one kind of genius to invent the lightbulb, another to create nuclear power, and a third kind to understand the physics of the universe. But to me, the greatest minds in the world were at work to make the little switch on your rear view mirror that you hit when someone has their high beams on behind you. You're staring at your own car roof, but you can still see behind you. I hope the guy that made that switch is sitting on a tropical island, drinking cocktails and is surrounded by beautiful women who feed him grapes.
