The Man who Invented the Twentieth Century - Nikola Tesla, Forgotten Genius of Electricity

Angus_Young: <dav^> tesla's birthday is coming up, i think july 10
Angus_Young: "Everybody knows that Thomas Edison devised electric light and domestic electricity supplies, that Guglielmo Marconi thought up radio and George Westinghouse built the world's first hydro-electric power station. Everybody knows these 'facts' but they are wrong."
Angus_Young: "The man who dreamt up these things also invented, inter alia, the flourescent light, seismology, a worldwide data communcations network and a mechanical laxative. His name was Nikola Tesla, a Serbian-American scientist, and his is without doubt this century's greatest unsung scientific hero."
Angus_Young: he may even have been responsible for the spooky tunguska explosion in 1908
Angus_Young: "Tesla died January 7, 1943, alone, and all but forgotten, in a New York hotel room, paid for by a meager stipend provided by the Yugoslavian government."
Angus_Young: this makes me feel sick
Angus_Young: [Tesla's US patents - complete listing (and a very nice photo)]
Angus_Young: Tesla's Last Known Living Assistant's Recorded Statement is kinda unbelievable in parts, but highlights how many things we take for granted that are still used 100 years later which Telsa invented - I guess the guy was really old when this was recorded, so I would not believe anything in it without confirmation from sources co-temporal with the actual inventions
Angus_Young: Tesla was notoriously bad at the business side of things and secretive, so we will never really know the full extent of his discoveries, I guess, especially since the FBI stole his stuff when he kicked the bucket
Mutiny: Link in comment 8 says Tesla invented the vibrator.

seti: From reader feedback on the Observer article: "American society is different from ours, they seem to be all in favour of physical violence as they find it easier to do than reason, which is not something some american parents are good at."
