I dislike Marconi. He stole the idea for the Radio from Tesla and got all the glory. Nobody even found out until long after they were both dead.

"Marconi is a good fellow. Let him continue. He is using 17 of my patents."

Tesla liked Marconi. He was fine UNTIL Marconi claimed he did it by himself. He was given the patent back a year after he died.

I knew Tesla didn't mind him using his inventions, Tesla was like that, anything to advance science, but the main thing is that Marconi was a complete dick about it and claimed he was a genius that did everything himself.

Darwin - smart enough to explain thousands and millions years of evolution, can't predict the next 10 minutes...

Technically the last one isn't a mistake or false prediction.

It's a severe understatement, though.

Severepwner will never get a girlfriend ever. He's a useless, unlikable twat who doesn't even deserve to breath and waste air on this planet. There was a tear in the universe when Severepwner was born, because his existence is a cosmological mistake

Oh come on now, that attitude won't help.
I mean, I can't blame you for that kind of negative thought, because I've struggled with it before, but if you go around saying it you might wind up believing it.

Actually, since the dude was writing in 1936, he was kinda on the right track. Hitler nearly DID rape every other european country into oblivion, and only didnt get Britain because he was an impatient dumbass. Then there were the Soviets and Communism spreading. So yeah, democracy did almost die during that time period. Several times.

That final one is correct

Not to mention that Y2K was going to be a catastrophe, most computer systems were done with simply a 2 digit year code 1989 = 89, and so on.
A lot of financial and business stuff would have crapped out and records would have been lost because contracts kept through databases that were supposed to pay out money at an interval at a certain rate would not know how to do it as the math wouldn't work.
It took programmers a good deal of time to go and change everything to 4 digit codes.

My dad was quite a big businessman throughout the late 80s til about 1997, and he was invited to this seminar to show how the internet was going to work before it really launched.   
He said that this one guy, would do some **** on a computer, then phone a number and say "i'm wanting to access www.funnyjunk.com (it wasn't really funnyjunk, but i forget)", then the page would take 15 minutes to load.    
   
My dad came to the conclusion that "this new internet thing is a lot of *****", which was contradicted by his business partner Davie who told him he had read it was going to be "the next big thing". However, my dad was still not entirely convinced.   
   
>HFW He sees the internet now.

There should be no reason Darwin's evolution should threaten the religious. Evolution explains the species and the natural cycles that must be undergone in a shifting biosphere. It does not explain the inception of matter nor how nature could have the intelligence in the first place to allow natural selection to operate. Some may say that evolution cancels out any deity by Ockham's razor, but such a claim ignores any alternative hypothesis (such as a deity creates nature to be self-sustaining). Only extreme empiricists and fools claim evolution defaces God. To many Christians, it only highlights how God truly creates and works.

The one with Darwin doesn't fully belong, because Darwin was goddamn right. There is no good reason people should be offended by the presentation of evidence. Religion, however, doesn't specialize in good reasons or logic.

Darwin was saying that essentially in no way did his theories oppose religious beliefs. He was a christian when he made his theories, after all.

EA doesn't really make bad games, they just push good games with potential to a point where it's really ****** i.e. Simcity
