Some of those inventions are less crazy and more interesting for their role in modern life.  It's always interesting to read about those inventors who struggled and managed to succeed, in spite of society's shortcomings.

Every inventor can have an off day. Sometimes they only had one on day.

Moderators, as this thread deals very specifically with Victorian-era scientists, I recommend that this thread be relocated from "Off Topic" to "Metaphysical", where it will receive the attention it deserves.

Prepare the topic relocation airship!

To contact us quicker, I'd generally say 'report' the topic, and put, 'move to Metaphysical' in the reason. That's how I usually do it on other forums, don't know if its the norm here though...

The section about Gail Borden is interesting. There doesn't seem to be much information about the terraqueous machine.
