He had most of the "symptoms" that go along with being Asperger's (ASD).  IIRC, he did not sleep well either.
 lets see, he invented the light bulb? there's also this motion thing he made. I suddenly remembered that he sort of burned down the barn of his family at a young age.
the lightbulb was invented by a german apothecary/pharmacist (or whatever its called in english) in newyork

Sorry, he was a British physicist and chemist, and lived in London.  Joseph Swan was granted the first patent for an incandescent bulb in 1878.

hum yeah i was wrong... but now after some reserch it seems to me that a scott named James Bowman Lindsay inveted it....
Okay, let's just say that Edison invented a practical light bulb. 
Edison was close to 100 years late, and he reused 30-50 year old ideas.
 somehow, I feel like I should consult a historian...
Some little-known facts about the man:

He manufactured the first scissors in the world (although John Hancock usually gets the credit).

He named and described the element Einsteinium 500 years before its discovery.

He built the first kite and flew it with the help of his loyal assistant, Ivan Pavlov.

He was a WWII hero, losing his leg, both eyes and the tip of his nose to the Germans, yet still single-handedly winning the Bay of Pigs invasion.

He discovered America, invented electricity, named the moon and unearthed the first working oil well.

Hope you get an A+ !!
