his best friends where pigeons that lived out side his window

Invents Alt: Electricity
Trieste give it to the
world for free
Inverts at Death Fin’ that
could have "handed world
domination to whoever
Finds out someone is
Let him use them, he is
doing good work."
invents everything from
to Radar to
wireless transmissions
no credit for it,
Finds outa contract he
has with someone will
cause that person to lose
their business, and all his
employees, their jobs,
Dies poor and alone,
except for the pigeons
Forgives everyones
Ignore nee.
This guy morally invented the' modern world, and over " veers before we could even
figure out how to understand his inventions, let alone use them. This my deserves all the credit
he can get. All he wanted was to make the world better.

I don't think we can know if he forgave us for our ignorance.
For all we know Tesla's up in the Elysian fields, looking down, and screaming "FUUUUUUUCK YOOOUUUUU GUYYYYYYS"
User avatar #5 to #2 - asheskirata (05/25/2014) [-]
I'm glad you said Elysian fields, makes me happy that someone reads mythology and cares about it :3

i remember learning about it in elementary school
User avatar #10 to #8 - asheskirata (05/26/2014) [-]
you should keep learning about it, haha, it's fun to see where all of the world's religions have come from

I've nothing against the christian heaven, I just wanted to use a different afterlife or the sake of the comment. I was tempted to use Valhalla, but I don't think Tesla would get in having not died in battle.
Can you imagine the hilarity if that was where he wound up spending the afterlife though? Nikola Tesla and a bunch of burly vikings...
User avatar #67 to #66 - asheskirata (05/27/2014) [-]
I never assumed you had anything against it, it's just nice to see someone mention something other than the Christian Heaven for once, y'know? Not a lot of people reference other mythos anymore.

If I'm honest, I mostly use them for comedic effect

i will never meet the man so i will never be able, on first hand, gauge who he was as a person, but pissing on his grave would fill me with malicious glee for what he did to tesla

>death ray
sciencexplain
User avatar #32 to #26 - endexter (05/26/2014) [-]
supposedly he came up with an idea to make a "death ray" based on the scientific principle of resonance. solid objects have a "natural frequency" and when a sound matches that frequency, it will vibrate. his idea was to make a device that would match the frequency of say a building, then it would create a sound at that frequency with a high amplitude and it would bring down the building. how feasible is the idea? idk, but it's the same concept behind a singer breaking a glass with their voice
#33 to #26 - conwadconwad (05/26/2014) [-]
along with the "earthquake device" he could apparently produce ball lightning which he could direct in various ways using magnetism.
User avatar #36 to #26 - lereturnedtroll (05/26/2014) [-]
it was never proven, and torn down by the government, not him
User avatar #41 to #26 - sirformidio (05/26/2014) [-]
There's evidence he manufactured ball lightning, in poverty conditions, with minimal equipment, in a hotel room. Despite some of the more brilliant minds attempting it, we can't recreate it today, even in favourable or laboratory conditions.
He thought of a way to give electricity wirelessly, before the idea of not having wires to send electricity from point A to point B was even conceived as possible. It would also power entire cities, on it's own, and take up less space than a nuclear reactor. The entire planet would've required less than 1 thousand for his time.
To say he invented a death ray, yet lacking proof, is just like "Eh, he did a bunch of other crazy, damn near impossible, **** . I'll roll with it."
#27 to #26 - kez (05/26/2014) [-]
Theres no proof he invented/designed/made it. He just kinda said he did and thats good enough for some people.

CHRIST. WE GET IT. TESLA WAS AN UNSUNG HERO OF HUMANITY. THE OATMEAL ALREADY TOLD US EVERYTHING.
#30 - mattoland (05/26/2014) [-]
Tesla died poor and alone because he was trapped inside a tiny apartment by big business, Tesla found a way to make energy cleaner and cheaper, but would put big businesses out of.... business, so they kicked the **** out of him, destroyed his life's work and locked him in a room. This is a theory though as there's no recorded information on it, but it sounded like an American thing to do.
User avatar #38 - noblexfenrir (05/26/2014) [-]
Goddamn these are ******* stupid.

1.) He did not invent A/C electricity, Germany had a production equivalent of the 2 phase generator and I think 5(?) year earlier there were patents and schematics for a 3 phase that were brought to fruition and were better than Tesla's. Also, "tries to give it to the world for free" please tell me how the **** he was going to do that when he could barely get funding for his own work. Yes, his patents were based around ambient absorption for energy, but again, there is always a cost somewhere. (Not to mention they were just that, established patents and loose designs.)

2.) Actually the guy who was using "Tesla's" designs, was using he designs he came up with roughly half a year before Tesla submitted his patent. It's not as much as him letting him use the designs, it's letting him continue the designs he was working on well before Tesla even came into play.

Imagine you're working on building a computer with specific parts, and you write a book with what parts you will use and how you think they will be put together. I then create a patent while your six months into development of your computer, and then say "but it's okay, I'm a nice guy, you can keep using my work."

3.) It was a horrible move on his part to simply rip it up when all he had to do was rescind his royalties until the company was back on it's feat. Then reinstate them when they were financially secure, thus giving him the funding for any of his endeavors. Still, good act, just a bad decision.

4.) He never invented a death ray, simply said that with funding he could have. Which means nothing.

5.) He didn't invent the x-ray machine, he experimented with the radiation and laid out some of the problems and dangers, but many scientists during the time were doing this. Edison is who we have to thank for much of our current knowledge since he took this research and then did human trials on himself and a willing assistant. Who both paid for it dearly health wise.

User avatar #39 to #38 - noblexfenrir (05/26/2014) [-]
He didn't invent radar, this is a ridiculous myth and is not supported by any of the documented research done by the leaders in the research, design, and implementation of radar systems.

"This guy literally invented the modern world"
No he didn't. He was one of the pathfinders along with many other scientists and the like. They all played their part and propelled us into our current age in technology.

"50 years before we could even figure out how to understand his inventions, let alone use them."
This is why even when he was alive we had designs and test products that were more efficient and advanced than many of his designs. Yes, some of his work was extraordinarily complex and proves useful even today, but that doesn't mean we didn't understand it. It just means we didn't have a way to apply them efficiently yet. Wireless communication/transfer of energy is ridiculously complex when you get down to it, stemming from the tremendous loss of energy through the process and the dangers to humans during the process as well.

"All he wanted was to make the world better."
Most scientists do, they also have personal incentives. Something Tesla was also guilty of, he just ended up being a horrible capitalist in the end.

"This guy deserves all the credit he can get"
This I do agree with you on. He was a very intelligent man who aided science in numerous ways. His research, failed designs, successful products, and hypotheses have been extremely helpful to us and to be honest helped us from being 10 years behind in wireless transfer technology. I admire and respect this man tremendously, which is why it annoys me when people have made up lies and exaggerations about him to turn him into this demi-god.

Tesla fanboyism is so strange. Tesla was crazy, brilliant sure but crazy only half his stuff worked. He is a strange historical character because on the one hand he did these brilliant things and contributed so much. On the other he talks about building a death ray, a mini earthquake machine, sending energy through the air several orders of and perpetual motion machinces.

Science has rules and laws and when someone says so many preposterous things with no scientific backing its basically akin to just saying well because of magic reasons it works.

Perpetual motion has been disproven so many times its insane. "He is smarter than us he could get it to work we just cant recreate it" as smart as he was if he creates things that defy physics laws I need proof not your conjecture.

I honestly cant tell if this whole Tesla craze some people have is them pulling us along for a ride or if they really believe it. Modern science can barely project current through the air 10 feet he claims that with limited means that he did it for nearly 30 miles. Everything we know he invited and can prove has been improved by modern science and we still cant make the stuff he claims and doesnt have proof of inventing. Oddly many of those devices also conflict with our current views of science.

There are lots of brilliant yet crazy people, many of us saw the melt down of Bobby Fisher possibly the greatest Chess mind there ever was. As they say the brightest flame burns first brilliance often has a cost Tesla was no different.

Unpopular opinion time: Tesla, as awesome as he was, is NOWHERE as great as you people try to make him out to be. This guy did not literally invent the modern world. Thousands of people who shared the same goals as Tesla invented the modern world. He might have had many fantastic ideas, but that does not mean that all of his ideas were fantastic. Just because he doodled something in his notebooks, doesn't mean it had to have worked. A world renowned composer is bound to have notebooks filled with songs. That does not mean that ever song that was written, is a masterpiece.

Nein. Tesla was a scientist at heart, not some money making businessman/inventor. He could of been one of the richest men ever to grace this earth, but he decided in multiple cases to instead opt for the benefit for everyone instead of self-gain. Not to mention his work was quite like Leonardo Da Vicine, literally years ahead of his time. We owe a lot of building blocks of modern science to this guy and many scientist today acknowledge his work was stolen by many and he allowed it in the name of progress and science.
F.Y.I. He didn't need money for his work, all he needed was his brain. So hop off your self-guiding ass rocket into faggotry land and research some facts.
#28 to #25 - anon (05/26/2014) [-]
He very rarely took notes, usually building his devices from mental blueprints.
#29 - anon (05/26/2014) [-]
Well, Tesla was great but I'm sick of people fanboying about him. Because he wanted people to have things for free, and didn't care whether he got credit or not, it may be possible that many of his inventions would have never made it out of his workshop. Edison was a idea-stealing dick, but he brought devices to the modern world.
Also, we have no way of knowing if he actually forgave people for their ignorance. We weren't inside his mind.
User avatar #46 - Crusader (05/26/2014) [-]
My god.
Hop off his dick.

Yes, he's a good guy, but I'm not going to cry for him.

You know why?

He sucked at marketing, that's half your job as an inventor, to not only invent something, but to be able to make money off of it.

Sorry if that seems a little too "capitalist" for you guys, but imagine how much more he could have done if he put "making money" a little higher.

No.
Job of inventor is to invent things. Really, its right there in the name. Look: INVENTor.
See?
Too subtle? INVENTor. See now?
Job of a business manager is to take inventions and market and sell them.
Tesla had several, and every one screwed him over.
And lets not forget one thing. The contract Tesla tore up, that contract would have made him world's first billionaire. It would have also slowed electrification of USA by decades because electrification would have been done with direct current, which severely limits how far you can send the power.
So maybe, its a good thing that some people care more about the world then their own money. However it hurts selfish little souls to contemplate.

Invent, no.
He did, however, take a first ever x-ray picture. But not on purpose, and while working on something else.
Roentgen developed his own program completely independantly from Tesla.
#37 - gurubear (05/26/2014) [-]
I love Tesla, but did you know he had a dark side, for instance did you now he believed in eugenics and rejected Einsteins theory of relativity. At one point he was pretty sure he received a transmission from Mars.
And he almost killed himself in a attempt to feed a pigeon.
And not saying you should stop loving him. But like all human, he had flaws.
User avatar #35 - lereturnedtroll (05/26/2014) [-]
that death ray was not proven to work, and it wasn't torn down by him it was torn down by the government.
