  1. Just fantastic… Whenever I delve into the works of individuals like Franklin, Edison, Archimedes or da Vinci I feel like such a slacker!

  2. Edison was a corrupt knowledge hoarder. Tesla could kick his ass any day. Knowledge should be free. Edison took credit for far to much creativity than he deserved. Franklin shared his discoveries with all that cared to listen.
