There’s a bad moon on the line

Alexander had converted his Singer Sewing machine into a telephone

Scientist, Inventor, Engineer and all round super intelligent bloke with a brain the size of a planet Alexander Graham Bell is most well-known for being the inventor of the telephone. He filed the first US patent for the device in 1876. he is also credited with inventing the metal detector and significant work on the hydrofoil and aeronautics to name but a few.

But you knew all that didn’t you? But did you know that he supposedly believed that moonlight was dangerous. I’m not sure in what way he believed it was dangerous though. Any thoughts?

About justwilliam1959

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
