Henry Ford, Charles Goodyear and Guglielmo Marconi. Marconi was subjected to psychological evaluation. Ford was threatened with it, if he didn't stop trying to do something significant. Goodyear was considered a nut, and died a pauper after the airholes stole his invention of rubber. Ralph Alpher did the original retro-calculation for the Big Bang, and had that stolen from him. Einstein was ridiculed, Jesus crucified.

I pick my heros carefully, and guess what? You didn't make the cut. But don't feel bad; neither did Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Hussein or Manson, and look how famous they are.

So here's another shot: I suspect a traveling fisherman from the Andromeda galaxy M31 came to Earth a long time ago with a bucket of live bait. When the bait didn't catch anything, he just dumped the live bait out of the bucket, and went back home. And here you are many generations later: just a now-indigenous alien, when you style yourself more like an exotic species.
