Thomas Edison died in 1931, so I can assure you that none of these utterly idiotic ideas came from him. This are the type of ideas you joke with your friends about when drunk but never actually take action on; unless you're really stupid and have a bunch of money left over from dead parents; parents who would have advised you against inventing something so dumb.
We live in a time when every single thing a child does is analyzed. If a kid builds a fort, his parents immediately begin worrying that he will join a militia and start gunrunning. Not that there is anything wrong with that profession.
