What many don't know about Nikola Tesla... the genius quietly behind many others....
(TruthSeekerDaily) I was doing a bunch of research on Nikola Tesla for some projects going on and came across this wicked image set that sums up Tesla’s story and the challenges that took place with Thomas Edison. The artist who did the work can be found at [theoatmeal.com] It’s and awesome site!
