Insert your favorite Thomas Edison-bashing joke here.

Who invented and popularized AC electricity (overridden by Thomas “Whole-Hearted Thief” Edison and stolen from by George Westinghouse)?

Who invented and explored X-rays (credit taken by William Roentgen)?

Who invented radio and radar (credit for radio taken by Marconi, and radar for the Navy blocked by Edison)?

Who investigated the effect of cryogenic temperatures on electronics (a precursor to superconductivity)?

Who invented an earthquake machine that really worked?

Who invented neon lighting, and the modern induction electric motor, the spark plug, the remote control, and developed the fundamentals of radio astronomy?

For The Oatmeal, it’s nothing but net again.
