    Yes, if Nicola Tesla were alive today, he`d be attending Comicon and standing in line outside Best Buy for the new Call of Duty.

    Actually, he`d probably be solving our energy crises.

    It`s funny how people use the word geek. Its definition is "unfashionable or socially inept," but being a "geek" is popular now.

    "`But I thought Edison was the father of the electric age.` - Everyone."

    Nope. Chuck Testa.

    Steve Jobs was a modern day Edison, that is why he deserves no respect!

    Frederich Soddy is the genius who`s understanding could save the world from ongoing economic failures. Just as Tesla`s discoveries ushered in the world we have today.

    @ onoffonoffon - it doesn`t do a bit of good to invent something no one has ever heard of.
    It takes an "Edison" to get it into every home.

    TESLA! FTW!
    Huge fan of Nicola and all his works. Too bad he wasn`t as smart at business as he was a genius!

    @r66tramp: Yes "invented"! iirc lightning is "DC" and Tesla created AC out of thin air, while reciting `Faust` from memory as his friend followed along with the novel in hand...

    Tesla was one of the greatest minds of the last century. It`s a shame hardly anyone recognizes his name, except for a hair metal band.
