I like that Edison had optimism but on the 10'000th try there was a light bulb

It would not have been a dark picture if Edison gave up on the lightbulb as he was in direct competition with Tesla to bring it to market. As a matter-of-fact, Tesla was much more altruistic then Edison as he gave up royalties on his patent design in order to allow for further innovation.
Thank you for allowing this space to comment as every time I hear this factually incorrect commercial it sticks in my craw.
