I wonder if it can start fires as well...
On another note, I also had the pleasure of watching a Victorian caper film, The Great Train Robbery (1978), this evening. Starring Sean Connery, Donald Sutherland, and Leslie-Anne Down, it depicts the execution of a train robbery involving a shipment of gold meant for the troops in the Crimean War by mastermind criminal Pierce (Connery). Besides hearing Sean Connery's sexy voice throughout a great deal of the movie, it's also a greatly entertaining flick. Besides that, it also depicts a few interesting things which existed in Victorian times- such as a bell for coffins to indicate that someone was buried alive- as well as a few which I am not sure did- such as a doorbell for a carriage driver to ring from his carriage.
