This one was a no-brainer. You’ll see why here in a second.
On this day in 1927 the first fully electronic television system is achieved by Philo T. Farnsworth. It’s because of this magnificent person that you get to watch Football this weekend. If that don’t make you happy I not sure what will. The part that made this a no-brainer for me is that fact that he was raised as a member of the LDS Church.
“This has made it all worthwhile.” (The live televised first step by Neil Armstrong on the moon.) ~ Philo Farnsworth
“If it weren’t for Philo T. Farnsworth, inventor of television, we’d still be eating frozen radio dinners.” ~ Johnny Carson
They say that ninety percent of TV is junk. But, ninety percent of everything is junk. ~ Gene Roddenberry
There’s nothing on it worthwhile, and we’re not going to watch it in this household, and I don’t want it in your intellectual diet. ~ Not a direct quote but his sons scientific summation of his father’s view
Can anyone tell me who Gene Roddenberry is? Without looking it up? I know, I know. Live long a prosper.
