Why Nikola Tesla was the greatest geek who ever lived.

An evergreen comic/article by The Oatmeal. It’s both humorous, and educational about how truly amazing Tesla was, and, by contrast, how overrated Thomas Edison was/is.

Tesla was known for discovering amazing things and then forgetting to write them down. Edison was known for rushing to the patent office as soon as one of his employees had something.
