Fact of the Day: Thomas Edison Was Afraid of the Dark

Thomas Edison is known for creating the light-bulb (though he does share the honor with some other inventors), and that may have helped Edison with one of his fears. He admitted that he was afraid of the dark.

  13. I didn't know this! I used to be afraid of the dark when I was little. I thought a wolf lived under my bed and was waiting to get me in the dark each night!
