Everyone's heard the story that Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times when trying to create a working light bulb before finally succeeding. When asked about it, Edison allegedly said, 'I did not fail 10,000 times. I have successfully discovered 10,000 ways to NOT make a light bulb'. Now that figure changes from 10,000 to 5000 or even 1000 depending on who's telling the story and whether he actually ever said those words is open to debate but the fact remains that Edison failed A LOT before he successfully created a working light bulb.
