"8. Alternating Current – A waste of time
Edison was fond of passing ridiculous arguments against his competitor George Westinghouse for AC power."
Acutaly it was Nikola Tesla who was the "competitor" Westinghouse just funded Tesla's work

Right, Alexandra Graham Bell invented the telephone (allegedly) and was British, so thats a load of c*ck for a start. Secondly, the first working submarines were made in the 1600's by a dutch inventor and tested in the Thames. The americans had military subs in the 1800`s so I think they are taking Wells out of context as he did most of his work in the early 20th century. Yet another load of untrue or semi-accurate crud put together by some 13 year old to fool the credulous.

We didn't think it was mathematically possible to break the sound barrier for the longest time. Our knowledge of the universe is only a passing glance at a tiny shimmer of reality.
