The "God" level should be replaced with "Watson" (as in Thomas A. Watson).
I second that. "God" is a little misplaced, context-wise, in the list.

Oops. I just had my breakfast. BTW, I'm working hard to become an Edison in a few months.

I am glad to see Tesla ranks higher than Edison. After all we do what we enjoy, not necessarily making boat load of money or electrocuting cows so Tesla is a higher standard than Edison 

Some theoretical physicists have been left out of the ranks. They are very curious kinds too

As an old Tesla fan I thought that was pretty cool too!
As for curious theoretical physicists I vote for Feynman smiley

…who was himself quite the hacker (and lock-picker).

Personally, I’d aspire to being a Muybridge or a Chaplin or a Dali.

so Edison volunteered to do it to show electricity can kill.
No, Edison volunteered to show that Westinghouse's AC (as opposed to Edison's perfectly-safe-but-it'll-electrolyse-your-body-fluids DC) could kill.

I don't want to be associated with Edison as a patent-clerk-bribing charlatan, so if someone will either change the ratings, or delete my account, I'd be ever-so grateful.

(did someone seriously not know who Claude Shannon was?)

Feynman was beyond whatever gods could remotely aspire to be.

You shouldn't be allowed to go past Shannon-level unless you know the difference between Shannon's Law and Nyquist's Theorem.

Only at high temperatures does Ohm's law break down.
I would disagree with that. What you showed is that at high temperatures the resistance of the filament changes, Ohm's law still applies. Ohm's law only applies to linear materials, there are materials where the resistance is dependent on the voltage applied, like diodes or veresistors.

Einstein?  No Einstein?  What kind of board is this...

Glad to see Tesla made it.  I always thought "God Member" was stupid.

After 10000 post, it should say "I miss my family."

I must say that great as those people were I wonder if they are above the Gods?

Only among the geeks of the world. And I don't think they come with personal lightning bolts.
Tesla did.
