I Am Amazed By Nikola Tesla

Go on, do a bit of research on this guy. What a life, what a mystery. 281 People

    Who is not? When we turn on a light,

    as we take a wireless call... Tesla was the "chosen one". If it were baseball he would hit .400 every year. Seasons of an ERA below .112. Perfection in the field. Like so many others that were well ahead of their time so misunderstood. So far ahead of the imagination of others...

    He used to live where there is now a deaf and blind school, or at least it was right by it, He had a place out east where he experimented with lightning and such. Wish I knew where that was exactly. The museum that used to be here, closed unfortunately. Makes me sad because I...

    What would the world be today had Tesla

    completed his work for transmitting energy wirelessly? Or if any person had ever been genius enough to understand the designs he left behind?

    The Bowie Of Electricity

    I love Nikola Tesla and hate Edison. His story is proof that our world was messed up long before any of us and that everything is controlled by money. How I wish it were differently. This had so many amazing ideas and inventions and is not known well enough for them.
