ya tesla got jipped, edison got all the credit.. cant remember the name of that multy part documentary about the history of the usa on tv last year.>> i was peed off when they mentioned edison as the father of electricity, and did not even mention tesla's name tesla was definitely one of the smartest people that ever walked the planet. if not the smartest person that ever lived..

All this is old news, bro. I was taught way back in high school that Tesla invented, or at least had a hand in inventing, many things that were at first atrributed to others.
I would hardly call him "forgotten" since he has received increasing credit and accolades almost every year for the past 20.
Hell..they even named a rock band after him; and that was over 20 years ago!
The Tesla Coil has been an exhibit for all to see for almost a century!
LOL.

After visiting this section of the forum I was expecting more talk about HAARP. To me, this stuff is truly scary. The video already lays out many ways to use this as a weapon, you can only imagine what the laundry list of classified capabilities are. Did you get a load of that program manager? The PR director is also a piece of work. Why would such a "benign" program even need a PR director?

ROFL........still young I bet.........I can guarantee most folks never heard of Tesla.......let alone his accomplishments and inventions......otherwise ConEDISON....would be called ConTESLA and Edison would not dominate the history books as far as electricity is concerned.

Tesla...wow...what a famous band...I never even heard of them until I composed this thread.

Try finding information on Tesla....relative to Edison.......it's a no brainer.

I totally disagree with your post and most posters agree with me....but do carry on!
