Work Hard To Make Life Easier

How hard would you work to make something easier?

To start the first automobiles, you had to turn a stiff hand crank. This was hard work and often dangerous: if the engine backfired, the crank could spin backwards and break your arm. Charles Kettering decided there must be a better way. In 1910, he set to work on a solution. Working day and night for almost a year, he developed a small, battery-powered motor that started the engine automatically. Ever since his invention, you just turn a key and the starter motor does all the work.
