This would have been much, much better as a Forum Topic. With a little bit of effort, you could even have made it Featurable.

I can make a very strong argument for this being the Best Answer rather than mine. Not that I'm complaining, and not that I think anyone cares ... but it really would be good if more folks realized which topics are best placed on Answers and which are better suited for the Forums.

(Not, I must admit, that I follow the Forums. I already have too many time sinks. Part of the attraction of Answers, for me, is that I can pop in, be helpful (I hope), and pop out again without feeling I'm missing anything.

Appropriate, but it's really hard to see the shape of "Google" in it. Not one of their better efforts.

Ah light bulb first record by Humphry Davy 1800 patented by Joseph Wilson Swan in 1878 - By Edison in 1880!!

Edison was an improver in this case.

Great man.
