    I Live In Colorado Springs, Where Tesla Had One Of His Most Accomplished Years...

    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...

    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.
