Great insight there, Nikolai.

Do you think the recent experiments confirming the existence of gravitational waves were fraudulent, Jim?

Am I the only one who finds the breathless Tesla fandom on the internet a bit strange?

Why don't internet IFLS followers go ga-ga for any of these dashing and mysterious hunks?

No, you're not alone, egjieg.

I think it was originally Serbians and Serbian Americans who, with a typical Serbian sense that all Serbians get a raw deal, started the Tesla mania. Why it took off to the degree it did I don't know.

Tesla produced. His development of the AC motor and the AC power system was a revolutionary step forward.
I respect Armstrong, who developed the FM broadcast system but was shafted by Sarnoff, also deserves praise.

That's the impression I get too - then there's the bit about Edison ripping off Tesla for a bit more Serbian outrage (no links but I've heard about it from a Serb.....several times).

Come to think of it, I know a particularly mad Serb who registered a variation on Tesla as a company name and then spent the next two years being an utter pain in the arse to Tesla Cars when they called him out on it. The little fucker.
