Learn to spell 'difference', then you're allowed to attempt an intelligent comment.

kk anon, I'll admit I spelt it wrong, but English isn't even my first language. Now tell me what was unintelligent about my comment, because surely you didn't type that just to thumbwhore?

my point still stands, no matter how many red thumbs I get. There is a differense between inventing and discovering. You can't "invent" electricity, because it is a natural phenomena.

He invented the tools to harness electricity. - Better?

MFW you made the same spelling mistake after being corrected.

I'm not anon

What if there is somebody like this now? Inventing things that the average person can't even comprehend, and he/she is getting no credit whatsoever.

And he also teaches us about energy weapons!
#281 - anonexplains (02/02/2013) [-]
And like many other scientist he had Christian roots and foundation.

His father was a Serbian priest...

An orthodox Serbian priest (Christian) who was mechanically inclined and applied that to his son.

Why is it that "good guys" must be drawn with a joint? What, only potheads are good people? I understand the GGG reference, but still.

i never met a mean stoner.

In Scotland most Neds are stoners. So chances are that if you get stabbed, then it was probably a stoner.

Can`t get over the incorrect use of literally, he did not literally invent the modern world, a time period can not be invented, and although he invented many things he didn't invent every invention we use today, so he didn't even figuratively invent the modern world. I get that he had some outstanding achievements, so you shouldn't trivialize them but over embellishing, they clearly speak for themselves.

What if they were using 'literally' figuratively?

If you take everything literally (lol) like you are then life must be a confusing and overwhelming experience for you, since everyone uses these awesome phrases called 'figures of speech' they add a certain tone to what you're trying to communicate even though the words of the phrase may not reflect their intended or actual meaning.

Actually, from what I heard, he tried to sell his Particle Beam "Death Ray" to several countries in attempt to make war obsolete by making it impossible to invade.

He was said to have tried to sell the idea to the US Military first for $3 million for the rights to build a tower equipped with the death ray every 250-500 miles long the entire border of the US. It was turned down so instead he gave them a small piece of the blueprints, then the other pieces to other countries, saying that then the US would have to work with the countries they hate in order to figure out how it works to assure no war would be possible. (And this is during or just after WWI and WWII looms on the horizon)

This is only a rumor, but it's said that we actually did or figured out for ourselves and have this fully functional weapon secretly in our possession today, along with Russia since the Cold War.

He also advocated eugenics and predicted by 2100 that weaker strains of humanity would be weeded out. Granted this doesn't change how extraordinary he was and Tesla def got ****** over by history, but he wasn't perfect.

The way Edison treated Tesla is just shocking.

for 8 yrs i've actually idolized tesla ever since i researched about the radio (first knew about him from red alert but meh that's only semi-related), can't believe the wireless transfer on energy isn't common today as it should be

Roentgen invented/discovered the x-ray. He first used it to x-ray his wife's hand, or something like that.
