    …“Tesla was a scientist and an engineer and died penniless.”

    Unless he got lucky with a stint on Sanctuary… that is.

    This strip is starting to look a lot like “The New Adventures of Queen Victoria”.

    I half expected Brewster to come up with a candle instead of a light bulb.
    Or a match.

    Don’t use that bulb Tom. It’s dim.

    Tesla really should be taught more in schools…It’s a shame people don’t know more about him…DC current didn’t travel well, there had to be a substation every half mile or so….Edison gave us the bulb, but Tesla gave us the ability to use it….

    Tesla is given so much credit for pseudoscientific bunk that educators may be reluctant to give him credit for real stuff.

    I like van Gogh saying “What?”

    Very true. Very long transmission lines act like antennas, broadcasting the electrical energy into space. (Passing under a high tension line out in the country, you can hear it on your radio.) DC doesn’t have that problem.
    BTW, is it a coincidence that I never see you and Superman together on the same comment page?

    What is Lincoln thinkin?
    Edison didn’t invent the lightbulb, he perfected it through experimentation. He was mean and electorcuted an elephant to turn people against AC and Tesla, but he is the one we remember. Tesla also did the first long distance radio broadcast but Marconi got the credit even though he used Tesla patents. Tesla was one of the most brilliant men ever and was treated poorly, there’s a lesson for the kids.

    You just didn’t notice. This is plagerized off the
    Real Slim Shady ‘my name is superman, I’m here to rescue you’.
