Panaceaa is right; Edison, though arguably brilliant, was also an ass. He used to pay kids to round up cats, which he would electricute with AC in order to "show" its danger.

He electricuted an elephant, and suspended his anti-capital punishmnent position to invent the "Westinghouse Chair", in order to disparrage AC.
