       Chapter three: The third type of bad inventor doesn't learn enough about greed and secrecy to keep their brain-children from being kidnapped and raised by Gypsies.

       Chapter Five: The fifth type of bad inventor lies and steals novel ideas from other unknown good inventors passing them off as his own.

       Chapter Six: The sixth type of bad inventor refuses to believe the conventional wisdom, and is convinced that, with a little care, it can be done perfectly simply at a fraction of the cost without the need for all that expensive high-quality pressurised and temperature-controlled equipment, instead relying on an old pressure cooker, a sugar thermometer, an<KABOOOOMMMMmm>

       The seventh type of bad inventor invents crap inventions, and manages to pass the blame onto other, innocent inventors

       The eighth type of bad inventor can't count and believes that math and physics were instituted by the man simply to keep the really good inventions down.
RayfordSteele, Mar 06 2015

       The inventor type in the ninth chapter is much like the eighth type, in that math and physics skills are lacking due to educational deficits in a system designed specifically to keep the inventive mind-set down, yet somehow still innovates despite the handicap, and deals almost entirely with the concept of Schadenfreude.
It's causes, and prevention.

       Chapter Ten: The tenth type of inventor, thwarted and beset by utter bastards, realizes that his cancer- cell-targetted therapy can be adapted to produce a virus which spreads like the common cold in the general population, but is lethal to one specific individual.

       Which brings us to chapter eleven: The Mad Scientist.
This chapter is a prime example of why we can't have nice things.

       I'm not mad. I'm getting even.

       Getting odd, seems to me.

       This is a set-up for all bad inventors to start a list.[-]

       The twelfth and last inventor is the Lazy Inventor who not even tries to get everyone else to do his job for him but gratefully accepts what others have done before him. His favourite sentence is of the dwarf standing of the shoulders of giants. From up there he can see the end of the book.

       The 13th type of inventor elbows in after everything is finalised and insists his new inventions get equal consideration with the old, established, canonised ideas.
pocmloc, Mar 10 2015

       The 14th type of inventor isn't really an inventor at all but instead some kind of performance artist with a personality problem who uses the forum as a way to study the social difficulty that drives innovation focusing on the disability to invent things as a subject and who is constantly adding stuff in after the fact that doesn't make any sense not only for no reason but also when it seems improbably and perfectly unacceptable.
