I'm not sure I believe this. I saw a documentary years ago showing Walth drawing "Mortimer " at that time. Plus health care for gladiators? Not sure I believe that.

Don't believe it. Read Edison's biography and it will tell you the truth. Most of this stuff is not even close.

Edison took credit for inventions created by others but put the pattern under his name.

I did know gladiators were often fed well, wounds treated by top Doctors of the day (probably worse than no treatment if Plinny the elder is anything to go by) they being the rock stars of their time

Deanna Modrall, Probably blood letting, if they were sick.Cauterization of wounds, limbs removed because of gangrene. And all while in a closed room with incense burning to help them breathe. Hippocrates actually realized that fresh air was better than a closed stuffy room. From what I can recall of my pre-med history courses.

THIS IS FAKE NEWS FROM THE DEEP DARK WEB, to encourage us NOT to BELIEVE in our TRUTH. THE GUT FEELING, WITHOUT proof or evidence. If it doesn't feel RIGHT its a lie. BELIEVE in TRUMP no matter where THE TRUTH, EVIDENCE, OPPOSITION WITNESSES LEAD. THE PROCESS is faulty. Their PROOF was gathered illegally, therefore inadmissable. Admission of guilt was a trick of technology. Trump is as innocent as JESUS CHRIST!😇 Its an elaborate frame job by HILLARY, OBAMA, THE CONSTITUTION, DEMOCRATS, AND ANYBODY who says different. Trump is truth, honesty, integrity, compassion. (Yuk yuk yuk)
