Edisons electrocution of the Elephant to prove DC was more dangerous was complete showmanship.

Edison was a DC promoter; the elephant was executed using AC to "prove" Westinghouse/Tesla's AC was dangerous. Also, Edison used Westinghouse AC on the first electric chair for the same reason. Edison definitely had a dark side.

Frankly the whole Edison / Tesla battle to power our nation (nee the world) was facanating.

Yep, and they both lost. Westinghouse/Tesla beat Edison, but then JP Morgan used lawfare (threatened to bankrupt Westinghouse with frivolous patent lawsuits) to take AC from Westinghouse and give it to his new General Electric company. GE was created from Edison Electric after JP Morgan used stock manipulation to oust Edison.

Did Marina have evidence that would have lead to the indictment of Hillary Clinton?

Hey @RWSGFY - I just see a blank, unplayable video there. You probably want to re-upload it.

I saw an interview where this guy talked about his disbelief that he became this famous of a meme.

He’s about 10-15yrs older now than he is in the memes

I don't know the effects of every STD in the world, and Bill has every one of them, and probably a couple that haven't been discovered yet.
