Forbes attempted to refute bits of this comic and The Oatmeal made a reply. Thought I would add it in case somebody else came across some of these points:

Tesla was a man ahead of his time. If there were more men like him in today's world. Communism/Socialism wouldn't be such a bad thing.

And too think Thomas Edison is written all over history books and the name Nikola Tesla hasn't popped up once in all my years of school...

I watched one documentary a couple of years ago that Tesla allegedly developed free energy using somewhat tesla coil towers that uses the ionosphere to transmit power and can be used for communications Or as a weapon. But was cancelled because it threatened the big companies' businesses.

I remember when I thought Edison was the greatest inventor ever, I was so naive at 12 lol.

 

My only knock on his genius was his refusal to accredit the Theory of Relativity, even in his life it was already validated.

Definitely reading this when I get home. I got to know more about him on the show The Men Who Built America on History Channel, when they show the "war" he had with Edison and JP Morgan. Awesome show to say the least. And Tesla was one of the greatest minds who ever lived, no doubt.
