The first lightbulbs were not exactly the smart and energy-efficient bulbs we have today. They were more like giant test tubes filled with a mysterious substance called “electricity” that somehow managed to light up a room. The first people to see a lightbulb in action were probably really frightened of it!
Also, Thomas Edison once said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” And let’s be honest, who hasn’t been there? But thanks to Edison and others, we can now enjoy the simple luxury of flipping a switch and having a room instantly illuminated. Who needs candles and lanterns?
