We invented the turbine business right here in Schenectady. Without the stuff that we make here, you wouldn't be able to walk in your house and flip on your lights. At GE we built turbines that power the world. They go into power plants which take some form of energy harness it and turn it into more efficient electricity. When I was a kid I wanted to work with my hands. That was my thing. I really enjoy working on turbines. It's nice to know that what you're building is going to do something for the world. When people think about GE, they typically don't think about beer. A lot of people don't realize that the power needed to keep their Budweiser cold and even to make their beer comes from turbines made right here. Wait, so you guys make the beer? No, we make the power that makes the beer. So without you, there'd be no Bud? That's right. Well, we like you.
