Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


11 February 1847

Thomas Edison is born.

Facts about Thomas Alva Edison:

1093 patents registered.
Almost deaf.
First invention: an electric vote-recording machine rejected by the Massachusetts legislature, who feared it would make votes more difficult to rig. How little they knew!
Three most important inventions: the phonograph, the incandescent light bulb, the "kinetiscope."
Died at age 83 on the anniversary of the invention of the light bulb.

Pretty interesting guy. Hard worker. That's why I could never be Edison. I'm too stinkin' lazy.
