Who is THAT?! Wait, is that — is that Nikola Tesla?! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Nikola Tesla!
Well, it’s birthday time for one of the most prolific inventory of humanity — Nikola Tesla’s 207th birthday is today (10 July 1856 — 7 January 1943)! If he was still alive, I would definitely suggest we have a Tweet-up and buy that man a round! A man who thought all human beings should have free energy, believed in the power of peace, and created more useful inventions than most people alive today — Nikola Tesla is one historical badass. He also got legally fornicated by Thomas Edison, which is another post altogether, but still managed to do unbelievable work on alternating current electricity.

I absolutely loved your article. Tuesday i took a group of engineers to lunch and we were discussing Tesla and all his accomplishments. You made me laugh out loud reading this. Thank you for the smiles. So happy to see the humor of a fellow lighting geek.
