Edison was a dick.
User avatar #65 to #23 - ivoryhammer (08/24/2013) [-]
Have you met him?

That's like saying that you cant say Hitler was a dick because you didn't meet him personally. NB4 Hitler did nothing wrong.
User avatar #73 to #70 - ivoryhammer (08/24/2013) [-]
Comparing Edison to Hitler is a pretty big stretch.

Oh right, I forgot, all the neckbeards have nerd boners for Tesla for some reason and hate Edison, what I mean to say is.
Edison was the most evil person ever, he raped babies and murdered puppies and kittens, and Tesla was a god amongst men, if he never lived we wouldn't have anything but sticks.

>implying it was his logic that was flawed in the first place.

He stated that "Edison was a dick".
You asked "Have you met him?"

You don't have to meet someone to be able to have the opinion that they are a 'dick'.

His "Hitler" example was following the lines of your ****** up logic in an effort to show you show ****** up your logic is.
I swear this site has more faux intellectuals than any other image sharing sites I frequent.

Oh for ****** sake, I'm being sarcastic, why the hell do you care so much?

Oh wow, the 'sarcastic' ending. What's next the 'I was just trolling' ending? Or the even more elusive 'I was hacked' ending?

How the **** do you not see "Oh right, I forgot, all the neckbeards have nerd boners for Tesla for some reason and hate Edison, what I mean to say is.
Edison was the most evil person ever, he raped babies and murdered puppies and kittens, and Tesla was a god amongst men, if he never lived we wouldn't have anything but sticks. " as blatant sarcasm?
#112 to #111 - creepycreeper (08/24/2013) [-]
Yeah, I know that's sarcasm. Do you even know what sarcasm means? Applying sarcasm in that situation and with those statements mean that you're sarcastically "agreeing" with us. You're just digging yourself deeper with this 'save'.
User avatar #113 to #112 - ivoryhammer (08/24/2013) [-]
I'm not "saving" anything, I'm making fun of all the Tesla fanboys that love Tesla and hate Edison just because The Oatmeal told them to with a biased comic.
#116 to #113 - creepycreeper (08/24/2013) [-]
Are you 100% sure that they hate Edison and love Tesla just because of that Oatmeal comic? I've read articles and **** like that way before that comic. They're both geniuses in their own right, but unless more information about their history gets uncovered; you can't deny that Edison kinda screwed Tesla over. I think that it was dick move on Edison's part. Hence I agree that he is a 'dick', but that doesn't necessarily mean that I think he's as evil as Hitler.

If you're trying to 'convert' them into giving Edison more respect that you think he deserves, then you're going about it the wrong way. Why don't you just tell us some of his cool scientific contributions?

I'm not 100% sure that it's because of The Oatmeal, but I know that he did a comic like that that a ton of people read and liked, it's one of his most popular ones. I'm not trying to convert anyone, it just annoys me that people discount all his scientific contributions just because he did some bad things. I'm not saying he should be worshiped or anything, but give him some credit for the hard work he did at least.

No one here is discrediting those! I agree that ever since that comic came out Edison's genius become overshadowed by his 'dick move', but no one is saying that he never did anything to advance Science. The world is the way it is right now because of him. Some people just think it would've been better if Tesla was just recognized, but we can't be 100% sure of that.   
   
 That awkward moment when I realize that we sorta agree on the subject. I still think 'Have you met him?' was a bad response. Something along the lines of "Yeah, but he also gave us "this and that and this and that" would've been better IMO.

No, Tesla was a genius but he was also a complete nutcase.

Tesla invented AC and Edison invented DC. To try to smear Teslas name, Edison would hook live cats and dogs up to an AC generator in front of large crowds and flip the switch; though the people were all too stupid to know that DC would do the same thing. AC current is pretty much superior to DC in every way but Edison didnt care about that, he was just a money hungry prick.

Tesla was a scientist for the sake of science, Edison was in it for the money.

His insanity makes him even better.

he also died an extremely frustrated virgin.... if i was a chick, id bang him
#163 to #146 - skyrn (08/24/2013) [-]
Frustrated for different a reason. He believed that all scientists should be chaste as it allows for a clearer thought process. This is the mildly insane bit coming in to play.

I'm not comparing Hitler to Edison. I'm just stating there was a flaw in the logic of your previous comment. The use of Hyperbole helped to make that point.
