Yeah, I could only watch past the first group of false statements of all the things he supposedly invented.

He was a smart, possibly brilliant, man, he was also bat **** crazy. and didn't invent all those things. some he arguably did,

I'm from Croatia, and this summer I went to his museum. I have to say I was speechless. So much patents and everything. I couldn't believe it. Tesla was really a wizard... 100 years ahead of it's time ...

He invented a feature I'm quite interested in which is a propulsion system that was completely electrical.

Yeah it was one brilliant man. What we need this century is a genius like Tesla, Thomas Edison, Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking to take us to the next step in our evolution.

I just can't believe he died penny less; but knowing how J.P Morgan gave him bad rep it didn't surprise me.

Evolution is a way of living from what I understand of it.

I didn't know Tesla was a wizard... Was that the reason J.P. Morgan gave him a bad rep?
Or was J.P. Morgan also a wizard and gave Tesla a bad rep because Tesla was muggle-born?
