i guess the real question is how can you not like tesla
he thought women would eventually rule the world because we’re the dominant sex
he liked pigeons
he was a vegetarian
he was a babe
he was shy
he hated edison
Yup, as long as you’re ok with that time he went bonkers and tried to build a death ray.
Are you serious the death ray was the best part
bit of a eugenicist and anti-Semite so I guess there’s that
(like that time in a letter to another high-society snob like himself he referred to “grocerymen” [read: “the poor”] and “Jews” as “plebeians” and “social-trilobites”)
like, I get that Edison was a total schmuck but yinz so desperate for a Science Hero that you’re going to gloss History in the other direction as if it’s any better…
And besides, Edison was such an asshole that the film industry had to move to the other side of the country and thank christ Hollywood is not in New York so thanks for that fallout at least.
