Edison did not invent the light bulb

Edison did not invent the light bulb,
you should know this. But he added
a powerful vacuum, a near complete
evacuation of air, and a bamboo filament.
From Sandor Just, a Hungarian, came
the tungsten filament. All this before
G.E. was founded. And the French,
they gave us all the beautiful
bulb shapes you see in this Paris
window, while you use halogen,
fluorescent, and LED or CFLs.
They gave near perfect color
rendition, in addition to their art.
