World Book Wednesday

Volume V

Vacuum- "In a vacuum cleaner, air flows into a partial vacuum and carries dust and dirt into the collection bag of the machine." 

This drawing begs to be colored in with my big sister's fine tipped markers that I'm not allowed
to touch. You just know the flowers on her apron are green and orange. And the carpet is brown.

Voting Machine- "The voter [...] has moved the pointers to indicate her choices. She is about to pull the large lever to the left. This action automatically records her vote, returns the pointers to their original positions, and opens the curtain of the voting machine."

They had automatic curtain openers as early as the seventies
but couldn't perfect hole punching by the year 2000.
(All kidding aside, don't forget to vote!)
