For those of you who do not know of Nikola Tesla read this article
Done? Ok. Well the author of the article, Matthew Inman, has started a funding program so as to help save Nikola Tesla’s laboratory and turn it into a science museum! Why do we need to save this land? Because, 1, of it’s historical and technological significance and 2, because
[t]here is currently another offer on the table from someone who wants to purchase the property potentially tear it down or turn it into a retail establishment.
Please help save this piece of land for science, the good of mankind, and for the unrecognized Nikola Tesla.
i guess the real question is how can you not like tesla
he thought women would eventually rule the world because we’re the dominant sex
he liked pigeons
he was a vegetarian
he was a babe
he was shy
he hated edison
Yup, as long as you’re ok with that time he went bonkers and tried to build a death ray.

You’re related to Nikola Tesla? Cool! How??
Sorry, for the late reply. :) Well, I’m one of his cousins 100 times (kidding, I think it’s seven times removed - the geneology tree is huge) removed from my father side. Obviously the genes are completely watered down in my case, but I like to think my dad had some of his genius in him. :)

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was one of the most fascinating scientists of the 20th century. He invented, developed or imagined the technology that brought us electricity, remote control, neon and florescent lighting, radio transmission and much more… all the basic inventions that now connect the world with power and information.
