Air Conditioning(False)

Benjamin Franklin loved to take "air baths" in the buff, opening the windows to let in the fresh air. Even to open the window to let in fresh air was worrisome to many, for fear of drafts. At the time, there was little awareness of the dangers of stale air and the value of fresh air inside. However, to assert that this practice presaged the invention of Air Conditioning is giving the very worthy Dr. Franklin too much credit.
