He's not claiming he invented the technique

From your own article: "He betrayed me," he said in his strong German accent. "I invented 'wet on wet.' I trained him and he is copying me -- what bothers me is not just that he betrayed me, but that he thinks he can do it better."

Your NYT quote from Ross describes one interview with him and the NYT.  Per Wiki:

Ross dedicated the first episode of the second season of The Joy of Painting to Bill Alexander, explaining that "years ago, Bill taught me this fantastic [wet-on-wet] technique, and I feel as though he gave me a precious gift, and I'd like to share that gift with you [the viewer]"

You can see the dedication in the first minute of the episode

 

Note that Ross doesn't falsely claim to have invented a centuries old painting technique while pouting, he just said "Yeah, someone taught me this but he's a competitor now so I'd rather not discuss."  That's classier than outright lying about having invented something.

Humble disappointment confirmed.
 
Still gotta' love Bob Ross, though. PBS Legend. Just, this bundle should've been released on a Humble non-gaming day (i.e. Not Tuesday).

So you think a single quote of him saying "I invented wet-on-wet" means he suddenly thinks he invented the technique?  After years of stating in public that it was an old technique?  Did you even bother clicking on the link I provided?

 

And of course Ross is pally-wally with Alexander while he's starting off (note: SECOND SEASON of Joy of Painting), but then after he hits it big, he turns his back on Alexander and refuses to mention him by name -- and you still think he acknowledges his teacher?  And that he's not an asshole?  Where's your source that states he acknowledges Alexander at the time of the NYT interview, smartass?

 

I'm done with you.

Asking for a friend :-

Someone on a game I was playing last night argued how horrible and abusive he was six times in the few minutes after the news went public, so I asked them to cite sources for their defamation (because I couldn't find anything on Google about him angrily nudging people with his wheelchair) and they screeched WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM I DON'T HAVE TO PROVE IT TO A NOBODY STOP GANGING UP ON ME. So no, it's never too early to start ridiculing a severely paralyzed dead guy, who was one of our best theoretical physicists these past 20 years.
 
It's funnier if you make memes out of it, though. Like this:

Doesn't that say that the sequences are not taken from the game? (French is a little rusty, haven't routinely used it in almost 20 years).

No, it says they were taken from a Jack's Pizza ad.

I usually don't give in to the hype of E3, but this year I'm fully willing to give in. 

 

..and Please give us Borderlands 3 Gearbox!!

..I'm always also really looking to see new titles and IP's at E3, also.

I hope there's loads of gathering points. I just can't get into a game anymore if 2/3rds of it isn't meaningless filler.
