Good Guy Tesla

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"

Theres no proof he invented/designed/made it. He just kinda said he did and thats good enough for some people.

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.

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.

He very rarely took notes, usually building his devices from mental blueprints.

He also proposed wireless internet using the same concepts he developed for energy transmission

I don't think he invented x rays...
#50 to #44 - angelusprimus ONLINE (05/26/2014) [-]
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.

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 shit 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.

It's a shame tesla got exactly the amount of fame he wanted.

CHRIST. WE GET IT. TESLA WAS AN UNSUNG HERO OF HUMANITY. THE OATMEAL ALREADY TOLD US EVERYTHING.

Goddamn these are fucking 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 fuck 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.

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.

I thought some woman invented the X-ray. Google says it was some dude named Wilhelm Röntgen.

Thomas Edison is a mega cock. We need to educate our kids about Tesla.

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.

You don't make it in this world if you don't get business and have charm.

It seems unfair.
But don't discount that level of intelligence.
