I'm glad this thread was formed... I didn't want to ruffle any feathers, but in a world where 90% of the [leading] populations have been led to believe that 19 guys with box-cutters destroyed the USA; it's time to re-think things from the ground up - the way Thomas Edison did things.

He once asked his students to determine the volume of a lightbulb and they scribed formulas on their notepads for hours upon hours on end. Eventually a solution was reached on paper. To wit - Edison took a lightbulb, unscrewed it and poured water into it until it was full. He then, poured the bulb full of water into a flask and measured the volume of a lightbulb - not by measure, but in practice (experience); and in a matter of seconds.
