1. Why Nikola Tesla was the greatest geek who ever lived


    Best. Footnote. Ever:

    “One could vaguely construe that Tesla’s cat was responsible for the second industrial revolution, which arguably makes it the most awesome cat who ever lived.”

    If you’re not familiar with TheOatmeal’s comics, be prepared for some profanity and word usage like “amazeballs” to prove points.  But beyond that it’s a good summary of reasons geeks like Tesla.  Self included.  After all, none other than *David Bowie* played Tesla in “The Prestige”.
