Europe, (London is still in the EU for a few more days) does not seem to be so anti-GMO as it once was.

Father's Day. My father died before the internet went crazy so a search for "William E Morrison" reveals nothing. OK, a hit on one of my favorites of my dad pretending to read to his seven offspring but not much else. But then lightbulb time, I try Google Scholar and bingo, a list of patents. Dad worked as an engineer for Jenn-Air, Lou Jenn convinced him to move to Indianapolis in 1955 (when porch photo was taken) and I remember dad coming home with bandaids on his fingers a lot. He brought a strobe light home and yes, you could easily mesmerize yourself into thinking the fan was not rotating with the rpm matching the strobe and yup, I stuck my finger in too.
So there are patents on those silver mushroom exhaust fans you see on restaurant/commercial roofs. But the first hit is a patent obtained two years after he decided to retire early. He figured out how to make a small tornado!
In the patent description: "The tornado created hereby has use for academic scientific study of similar phenomenon occurring in nature, of which knowledge is quite limited. It has further use as an attractive and educational demonstration."
That's kind of cool.
He also helped design that Jenn-Air stove top grill for steaks but it's not his fault your kitchen filled with smoke. The installation of the centrifugal fan in your basement was never done right. :-)
