    If you're talking about Philo Farnsworth, he wasn't the sole inventor of the television as according to Wikipedia,"The history of television comprises the work of numerous engineers and inventors in several countries over many decades."

    Also, Farnsworth was not originally from Idaho and only lived there for a short time.

    Nice try though. Idaho is not important.

    Living vicariously through the achievements of a man who was dead before you were born sounds like a pretty Idaho type of thing to do. People from places that don't suck probably don't give a shit who invented tv because they're too busy doing stuff that doesn't suck, like not growing potatoes.

    I don't get it. Both states have a very long and important history dating back the the original 13 colonies.

    Invented the TV to watch porn in lieu of fucking sheep. Little known fact, sheep actually used to be called "Boise Dimes" up until the 1940's
