When you saw the trailer for that movie Flash of Genius where Greg Kinnear plays the guy who invented windshield wipers, you were probably thinking, "If I ever decide to kill myself, it will probably happen while I'm watching a movie about the guy who invented windshield wipers."

All thanks to a little rubber blade against a piece of glass.
