Um ... Carrol, were you thinking 'machine?'  A lever is a 
simple machine and so is an inclined plane - is a wheel? This 
is a genuine question from the depths of my ignorance, not a 
smart-alec response.

In college long ago my history professor in a fit of pique 
pulled down too hard on the classroom's roll-down map of 
Europe, ripping the whole shebang off the wall. He said, "Oh 
well - I never had any luck with machinery!"
