    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.

    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...
