   (continuing)

“[he succeeded] every now and again with an invention that would change the world. The rest of the time, he tried thousands of other things with only one fault–that they would never work.

   We agree. Many an attempted cure for cancer–a product or treatment–that failed did not fail in another sense. Proof was obtained, however, (if the experiment was carried out well), that a certain chemical or process was not the way to go, as disappointing or minor as that may seem. Evidence for “NO” matters.

  So much for a disappointing real result.

   In our next post, we list the what Daniel Stone considers the 10 TOP INNOVATIONS of the modern world.
