Adolphe Sax Saxophone the hated inventor and the dreaded thing he created

Adolphe must have been the most unfortunate boy ever. He was certainly the most accident-prone. His mother concluded that he was “condemned to misfortune” and concluded that “he won’t live.”

It seemed as if nature knew that this seemingly innocent boy would grow up to invent something so utterly horrifying and threatening that mobs would demand his death.

Who was this unfortunate boy who was condemned to misfortune, and what monstrosity did he grow up to create?

      1. Well, I suppose you must consider the time period this happened in. Some people couldn’t imagine what might be possible in the future. Some were not as inventive as others and this was so far out of the scope of what was normal then that it appeared threatening to some because they couldn’t imagine creating anything like it or better than it was.
