A 14-year old building his own car - ok, brilliant
but if he invented the car in 1978, what was
that '76 convertible I used to drive?
We had network mail with every one of these claimed innovations way before 1978.
EMACS had at least two mail sub-systems, RMAIL and BABYL, pre-mouse so 1-key Delete, Forward, Reply, Output to another folder, delivery to, from, bcc, etc., etc., long before the fake 1978 claims.
PS: When a joker claims he invented the automobile in 1978 that's not news. When a reporter buys such a joke and the Washington Post prints it - now that's news. Give good interview and today's press'll give you a pass on facts?
