Seriously. I didn't even scratch the surface of this guy's contributions and Good Guyedness.

Invents A/ C Electricity
Tries to give it to the
world for free
Finds out someone is
using one of his patents
Let him use them, he is
doing good work."
Finds out a contract he
has with someone will
cause that person to lose
their business, and all his
employees, theirtoys.
Rips up contract
Invents a Death Ray that
could have handed world
domination to whoever
held it.
Destroys it
Invents everything from
Sprays, to Radar to
wireless transmissions
and A/ C electricity.
Doesn' t care that he gets
no credit for it.
Dies poor and alone,
except for the pigeons
which he loved (true)...
Forgives everyones
ignorance.
This guy literally invented the
mordern world, and over 50
years before we could even
figure out how to understand his
inventions, let alone use them.
This guy deserves all the credit
he can get. All he wanted was
to make the world better.

explanation time:   
   
those little lines that are spreading out everywhere are called step leaders, and theyre actually tunnels of plasma that electrons can travel through.   
they come down from the cloud and branch out in segments until one gets close to the ground.   
when one of them is close to the ground, the positively charged earth (the earth is positively charged during a thunderstorm because the massive amount of negative charge at the bottom of a cloud actually pushes the electrons at the surface deeper into the earth, so the top is positive) sends up another step-leader type thing called a streamer, and streamers are positive. the streamer meets the step leader that is closest to the ground, and then there is a complete path of plasma from the cloud to the ground.    
the electrons flow through this plasma at the speed of light. this action is the only part of the video that actually goes at the speed of light. the step leaders that were attached to the one that connected to the ground send their electrons back the way the came, into the primary plasma tunnel, and they also go to the ground. the plasma tunnel remains in place, and more flows of electrons follow the first one, which is why the lightning bolt looks like it's glowing.

You forgot the part where he abstained from sex his entire life to focus on the pursuit of science.

I know that FJ is a group of sex-obsessed idiots who will be incapable of seeing why he would ever do that, but that, to me, is especially worthy of note.

HOLY *********** MONKEYS ON A BUS.

Did you know that Nikola BADASS ************ Tesla used to bathe in Electricity?
He was all "You know, **** your water, i don't need that **** , i bathe in Zeus's product while you gargle in Neptunes sweat."
You think that's hardcore? Think twice douche fag, **** gets more intense.

Nikola Tesla died without banging single chick... Because, who the **** needs dames? He didn't, and he was a hard ass awesome son of a bitch, and hard ass awesome sons of bitches need no dames, he was married to SCIENCE, and they ******* made mad sweet love every night in the lab, giving godly birth to Alternating Current, The Modern Electric Motor, X - Ray, Neon, Robotics, Wireless Communication Systems, Advanced Laser and Radar Technology and even STAR WARS TACTICAL WARFARE.

Science was his Bitch, the world was his bitch... But he didn't bragged about it, because **** YOUR SWAG, he had class.

He created a ******* monster Tower called "Wardenclyffe Tower" that was able to light up electronical equipment WIRELESSLY (That means, Without Wires you dick goblin), using only the Mother ******* air as the vehicle for Electricity.
You think that's ******* Amazing? No, i'l show you whats amazing you small minded vermin.
This Wardenclyffe tower, could also ELECTRIFY THE WHOLE ******* WORLD, using the Ionosphere to conduct electricity, using Earth's own rotation to get electricity. (That's ******* badass, Zeuz would cry in shame.)
That means, FREE ELECTRICITY, for everyone, everywhere, mother ****** .

Tesla didn't invent AC electricity..

He invented the first polyphase AC motor.

Tesla was super eccentric in his personal life. He had insomnia, photographic memory and OCD. Telsa had a lot of weird habits and behavior as a result of his.

Here's an interview with him where he was describing what technology he believed would exist in the future, as well as societal speculations. Interestingly, he thought that in the future, women would become the dominant sex.

I find that star wars meme to be epic and awe inspiring.

I have a pretty heavy respect for both Tesla and Edison, but I have to admit that Edison was a colossal dick. In an attempt to sway the people to his usage of electricity over Tesla's, he staged numerous electrocutions of small animals (yes, including puppies) in public. He topped this by killing an elephant on film. If you're at all skeptical, the footage still exists.

In short, my favor will always lie with the man who isn't completely bonkers.

you, and the OP are ******* amazing. i knew most of this, and how edison was an asshole...but now a few thousand people know. nice picture....im going ot steal it!
