Apparently he was a total piece of shjt and stole tons of patents from people. You're gonna think I'm making it up, but he also electrocuted a bunch of peoples house pets too.
@ThePandaPool , I heard that story, really messed up.
@ThePandaPool , and this is another reason why I don’t trust our history books. An Arsehole made out to be a hero
@GingerSenpai, he was just a very smart business man determined to become famous and make lots of money. Which he did. But yah, major jerk. All us electrical engineers love Tesla and despise Edison.
@iLikeBigBooks, Tesla is my man
@ThePandaPool , nope, you're absolutely right.
@ThePandaPool , don't forget that he pumped a shït ton of AC volts through death row inmates to try to prove Tesla's high voltage AC power was way more dangerous than his low voltage DC power. Basically torturing them with no threat of death.
@ThePandaPool , He also sent thugs to destroy rival companies' film equipment.
@ThePandaPool , you should watch "the man that built America" it really pisses you off.
@ThePandaPool , I’m actually sad that younger me decided to do all his elementary school presentations on this guy
@mayora13, that was a great show
Yea but Nikola also wanted to send power through the air for wireless power distribution..totally nothing wrong with that. Not saying what Edison did was good.
@owanobi, to be fair, they were discovering how to harness and use electricity. We know now how dangerous and deadly it can be, but they were still learning about it back then.
Can we stop with this conspiracy nonsense.
