Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) is the greatest inventor of all time. Oddly enough, very few people know about the Serbian-American inventor or his contributions to humanity. His GENIUS and AWESOMENESS are unparalleled by any other inventor and humanitarian up to this very day.
Tesla invented AC electricity, wireless electricity, the remote control, cellular technology, the radio, the electric motor, the generator (basically motor), X-rays, neon lighting, the Tesla coil (transformer), basic radar and laser technology, robotics, and “Star Wars tactical warfare.” At the time of his death, Tesla held over 700 patents. Not to mention the fact that I’ve literally had metaphysical orgasms while conducting one-on-one seminars, infobombing my ex-girlfriend about Nikola Tesla. @@.
Tesla was never in it for the money. Tesla was someone who wanted electricity to be free for all, but in America, he of course couldn’t do that and he was considered “a threat to the world energy economy.” The Serb was screwed over by the likes of Thomas Edison, whose company was going to go bankrupt, so he made promises to Tesla, Tesla improved everything, and Edison then fired him saying Tesla does not “understand how American businessmen work.”
Nikola Tesla was convinced that he could build power transmission towers to provide free wireless electricity for the entire planet, and he began building a demonstration tower in 1901. The project was funded with $150,000 capital from financier J.Pierpont Morgan. The Wardenclyffe Tower was intended to transmit communications and power. When J.P. Morgan learned the fullest extent of the tower’s capacity of providing FREE WIRELESS ELECTRICITY without the need for gas, coal or any other energy source he can make money from, he was beyond enraged and he took it as the deadliest threat to his many other businesses. The project was abandoned when Morgan withdrew his financial support. The tower was never completed.
I could go on forever (and achieve extraterrestrial-like multiple orgasms) researching further and continuously sharing with others about Tesla and his works, but I suppose a good start would be to understand the awesomeness of the Tesla Coil.
This video shows a demonstration of the high voltage wireless transmission Tesla was experimenting with. (YOU ARE REQUIRED TO WATCH THE LINKED VIDEO in full – LOL :P – if you have not yet seen a Tesla Coil in action.) The demonstration is at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
So, to all the SCIENCE TEACHERS out there, please please please know more about your science and history, and help put an end to the ignorance of your students about Tesla. AND PLEASE, burn mother-effin burn all those pages in science textbooks revering Thomas Edison as a good inventor. O_O
Edison and JP Morgan are among the worst scums of the earth.
In exactly six hours, I’m turning nine months and a quarter of a century old. My greatest wish is for Nikola Tesla’s awesome ghost to be my Casper, so I can always talk to him myself… and I’ll be his awesome ghost’s amanuensis :P IF that happens, maybe I could also invite him to all my science classes for SHOW & TELL. Ha Ha Ha! :D
