Eat science kids. It doesn't matter who comes up with the idea, if you are too slow to execute it someone else will.

This guy is full of it. Almost everything was completely wrong except for part of the Edison part.
While T.A. didn't invent the very first light bulb he was the first to make one that worked for along time and that people could afford. As for the rest of his inventions I don`t know about every single one but most of them were actually his. And the thing about Einstein, just proves that the internet is full of complete A-holes who don`t have any idea what they are talking about.

i thought everyone knew edison didnt come up with the idea for the light bulb but he perfected the lightbulb so it will last.. the first lightbulbs burned out almost instantly (remove all oxygen and pump in a different gas, shape of the glass so it wont shatter when the air is vacumed out)
i never heard of galileo inventing the first telescope..
no one invents anything on their own anyway.. someone comes up with an idea.. someone makes that idea better.. and so on until its perfected
