Tesla: How a meme is created

  • John A. Leopard I wonder if they will mention that he was probably Gay?
  • Nina Tryggvason Interesting. I’ve seen a few docs on him and never heard that!
  • Nina Tryggvason makes me even less surprised now that he wanted to give it away
  • Nina Tryggvason I wonder if money greed and breed excess.. seed spreader and greedy hoarding – is related behaviours….
  • Nina Tryggvason Genghis Khan didn’t build an empire, he destroyed them, but he fathered the majority of his geographic region. so in the personal sense, more successful than Caesar
    from conversation to screen shot… seriously should have spell checked first LOL
    John A. Leopard Tesla never married and there is no record of him ever having a relationship with a woman (other than his mother). He did have several “close” relationships with men, but unfortunately there is nothing that one can use to “prove” that he was Gay. If there is a type of “Gay genius”, like Sir Isaac Newton, Michelangelo, Rene Descartes and Leonardo Da Vinci, Tesla fits the description to a “t”.
    as I was updating, I noticed that the Mythbuthers shared this!
    #ScientistSaturday: Nikola Tesla was the ultimate mad scientist! His work was crucial to the development of radio communication and he is best known for his “Tesla Coil” which produces high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity. Tesla lived in a series of hotels in NYC throughout his life before falling into impoverished circumstances. Regardless, he would still hold magnificent parties on his birthday to introduce his new inventions. Basically, he was one cool dude.Learn more about Tesla, here → http://bit.ly/1e7W72v
    so I shared it with this comment and tagged to John
    oh yesthere is not way he was not gayjust the birthday party description nails it!

    Seriously, he’s the Freddie Mercury of science!

    “The deniers will always opt for “asexual” unless a gay man has stated outright that he is gay. It’s their cop-out. They also say “he never found the right woman”. Yeah: Beethoven never found the right woman, fcked his fiddle.
    Most truly great human achievements have been by gay folk. Heteros ensure the continuation of our species. Gay folk ensure human evolution by their effect on society.
    Think of living in a world in which the following gay folk had not lived: Socrates, Plato, Beethoven, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Jean-Jacques-Régis de Cambacérès (author of the Napoleonic Code, i.e. the law of France and many other places, basis of much other European law, incl. modern German law), Immanuel Kant, Schopenhauer, the Wright Brothers (invented the airplane,made the first heavier than air flight), Felix Hoffmann (discoverer of Aspirin and heroin, also diamorphine, still prescribed by physicians to kill extreme pain), Cecil John Rhodes (after whom two countries were named, for a while the granary of Africa: Northern and Southern Rhodesia, now Zambia and Zimbabwe).
    Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of the printings press.
    Francis Bacon, philosopher, statesman, scientist, lawyer, jurist, author, conceived the Scientific Method. Without this modern science would be unthinkable.
    Copernicus, one of the greatest polymaths, proved that the world revolved around the sun.
    Robert Boyle, chemist, physicist, inventor.
    Sir Isaac Newton, physicist, mathematician, astronomer, one of the most influential men in history, described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion which dominate the scientific view of the universe, built the first practical reflecting telescope and developed the modern theory of colour, shares credit with Leibniz for the development of the differential and integral calculus, demonstrated the generalised binomial theorem.
    Robert Hooke, architect and polymath, important in the scientific revolution, especially in mechanics, invented several scientific instruments still in use, discovered the law of elasticity. Result: balance spring enabling for the first time a reasonably accurate portable timepiece, leading to the chronometer, making accurate navigation possible.
    Adam Smith. His book The Wealth of Nations was the foundation of the science of Economics.
    David Hume, whose ideas formed the basis of modern economics and Western philosophy.
    John Locke, Enlightenment philosopher and political thinker; his ideas form the basis of modern democracy. One of the first to argue for religious tolerance. His ideas are directly reflected in the American Declaration of Independence. They include the law of supply and demand and of a balance of trade.
    William Pitt the Younger, collaborated with his close friend, William Wlberforce, on the Abolition of the slave trade.
    Thomas Paine, philosopher of the American War of Independence, greatly influenced the French Revolution. He wrote The Rights of Man and The Age of Reason.
    Alexander von Humboldt, explorer, cartographer, meteorologist, laid the foundation of the sciences of physical geography and meteorology.
    Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam, forerunner of the protestant reformation.
    Christiaan Huygens, mathematician, astronomer, physicist, horologist, argued that light consists of waves. His work included investigations and inventions related to time-keeping and the pendulum clock, worked on probability theory, optics, explained Saturn’s rings and centrifugal force; regarded as the first theoretical physicist.
    Florence Nightingale founder and first organiser of the nursing profession. Without her, most of us would be dead.
    Nicola Tesla, discoverer of AC electricity and many other breakthroughs in this field.
    John Maynard Keynes. Keynesian economics dominated the economies of the world after World War II.
    Alan Turing, mathematician, broke the German Enigma codes, thus shortening World War II by possibly a year, invented the modern computer.
    The list of great gay artists, composers, writers etc. is almost endless.
    Leave aside great military leaders like Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Richard Lionheart, Frederick the Great, Charles XII of Sweden, Chaka Zulu (founder of the Zulu nation), Friedrich Wilhelm, Baron von Steuben, General in the American war of independence, taught the Continental Army the essentials of military drill and discipline, helping to guide it to victory – (No gay = no USA).”
