Very much agreed. I personally put him above Einstein because the man could apply his ideas DIRECTLY for the benefit of mankind. The mans genius can not be understated. And I think as time moves on more of Telsa's ideas will be put into practice. The only thing that hold us back is the same then that held Tesla back. Greed by investors driven by personal profit only.

He was one of the greatest minds to ever grace our planet...Period.

Einstein and Tesla were two totally different kinds of genius.
