Question: So why are you and I currently not driving around in automobiles that we can fill up from our garden hoses?

After all, isn’t America a country that welcomes and rewards new technology?

Before you answer, you might find the following of interest?

 Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla (Serbian Cyrillic) born 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-American inventor, physicist, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer, and futurist.

He is best known for his contributions to the modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system, the successful system in the “War of Currents”.

Tesla’s patents and theoretical work helped form the basis of wireless communication and radio. He is also known for his high-voltage, high-frequency experiments in New York and Colorado Springs, experiments in X-rays, and his ill-fated attempt at intercontinental wireless transmission in his unfinished WardenclyffeTower project.

Tesla’s achievements and his abilities as a showman demonstrating his seemingly miraculous inventions made him world famous. He made a great deal of money from his patents, but he also spent a lot on numerous experiments over the years.

In the last few decades of his life, he ended up living in diminished circumstances as a recluse in a series of New York City hotel rooms, occasionally issuing unusual statements to the press. Because of his pronouncements and the nature of his work over the years, Tesla gained a reputation in popular culture as the archetypal “mad scientist”. He died penniless and in debt on 7 January 1943.

Tesla’s work fell into relative obscurity after his death, but since the 1990s, his reputation has experienced a comeback in popular culture.

In 2005, he was listed amongst the top 100 nominees in the TV show “The Greatest American”, an open access popularity poll conducted by AOL and The Discovery Channel.

In 1960, in honor of Nikola Tesla the General Conference on Weights and Measures for the International System of Units dedicated the term “tesla” to the SI unit measure for magnetic field strength. (Source, Wikipedia).

Albeit Wikipedia continues providing a wealth of information about Nikola Tesla, this brief history provided by (YouTube) may be a more enjoyable platform?

Nikola Tesla was real, ..and like Stanley Myers, (also real) both were victims of a system of corruption driven by greed.

Stanley Myers Water Car – 1988

Yeah, ..right here in the good ‘ole U.S.A.

In America, “The Land of the Free,” ..and the Home of the Brave. If you invent something for the betterment of mankind you have two choices. You can sell it to an Oil Company, who will shelf it for further study, ..or you can gift it to the Government who will shelf it for further study.

Yes, of course there’s a third alternative, however to present it in print without streaming video and/or six million witnesses to back me up, by law my accusation would be without merit and libelous.

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
