In Reference to: Thomas A. Edison

I HAVE THAT VIDEO ON CONEY ISLAND, BUT WHILE MY FAMILY SAW THE ELECTROCUTION- I COULD NOT BEAR TO WATCH.

THEY FOUND IT SICKENING.

FOR THOSE WHO ACTUALLY WITNESSED IT BACK THEN, IN PERSON, I HAVE TO WONDER HOW MANY WERE INDIFFERENT AND HOW MANY WERE SICK TO THEIR STOMACH WATCHING AN ANIMAL BEING ELECTROCUTED.

EDISON WAS VERY COMPETITIVE ABOUT HIS *INVENTION* AND THERE WAS SOME POINT IN TIME WHEN HE WAS TRYING TO DELINEATE TO THE PUBLIC( AND INVESTORS? ) THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AC/ DC CURRENTS.

HE FREQUENTLY ELECTROCUTED DOGS AND HORSES AND GOD ONLY KNOWS WHAT OTHER POOR ANIMALS HE GOT HIS HANDS ON :-( THAT WAS WHAT WAS RECORDED ON PUBLIC RECORD. HOW MANY LIVES WERE SNUFFED OUT THAT WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT?
