I haven't heard that take on the light-bulb joke yet  ^-^ Thank you,

also nik is an odd suffix for english :/ being pronounced "nick" in all the sourced i can find, almost like it was originally meant to tie in with the work knack? (being naturally good at something)

The "nik" suffix is derived from Russian, I believe. Think "Sputnik"
